Who is Bruce on Survivor 2023?

Bruce Perreault is a Survivor 44 star who had to leave during the first challenge. Now, he joins Survivor 2023 as a contestant, alongside his job as a real estate agent.

The 46-year-old from Warwick enjoys golf and boxing in his spare time. He is currently raising two “awesome kids with my amazing wife” and grew up with a white family who adopted him.

Ahead of his initial Survivor 44 fame, Bruce said “turning into the husband and father that I am today after being abandoned as a child” is the life experience that prepared him for the game.

He was pulled for serious injury

Assigned to the Tika tribe on Survivor 44, Bruce hit his head against an obstacle and started to bleed profusely minutes into the first Reward Challenge. He felt lightheaded from the injury.

The medical team was able to treat him with oxygen, clearing him to return to camp with his tribe. Later that night however, Bruce’s concussive symptoms returned and medical was called once again.

They ultimately made the decision to pull Bruce from the game, much to his disappointment. During the premiere episode of On Fire with Jeff Probst, Jeff formally invited Bruce to return for Survivor 2023.
