Will the third time be the charm for Tyson Apostol? The Utahn will be competing on "Survivor" again this fall in the upcoming "Blood vs. Water" season.And his girlfriend will be competing with/against him.(Actually, they've already competed. The new season won't begin airing until Wednesday, Sept. 18, but was filmed earlier this year.)Apostol, the hilariously arrogant ex-pro cyclist/shop manager, has been here twice before. He finished eighth in "Survivor: Tocantins" in 2009 and 15th in "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" in 2010.His girlfriend, Rachel Foulger - a 33-year-old cocktail waitress/graphic designer from Provo - is a first "Survivor" first timer. And she's part of the upcoming season's twist on the game."Blood vs. Water" features 10 returning players and 10 new players who have relationships with them. There are three married couples; two dating couples; two mother-daughter pairs; an uncle-niece pair; a pair of brothers; and an engaged couple.That engaged couple is Colton Cumbie and his betrothed, Caleb Bankston. Cumbie, you may recall, embarrassed himself, the show and the network with his racist behavior when he appeared in "Survivor: One World" in 2012.Whatever happens, I'm sure we can count on Tyson for some laughs.
