What do you get when you stick a technical writer and a robotics scientist on the same island? The first alliance of Survivor: David vs. Goliath!
Season 37 of the long-running CBS reality competition series kicks off on Wednesday, and while we expected to see underdogs join together, only ET has a first look at what might be the nerdiest "couple threat" in the show's history.
"I'm a bit of a weirdo," robotics scientist Christian tells Gabby in the clip, as they head off into the jungle. "If I get a little too saucy with the weird science stuff..."
"No! I love it, I think it's endearing," Gabby, who writes documentation for software, replies. "I'll let you know if you're too much. But I'm nerdy too, so I get it. I got you! Nerds gotta look out for each other. Not to call you a nerd, but I call myself a nerd!"
That nerdy connection was all it took for the two to become "kindred spirits," vowing to let their "vibe" steer their gameplay for at least the near future.
