Scot From 'Survivor': Retired NBA center Scot Pollard has to be star of his tribe

Former NBA player Scot Pollard on ‘Survivor’ and surviving.

After Paul George, George Hill, Coach Vogel, and Boomer appeared on The Bachelor on Monday night, the Pacers’ reality week continues with former Pacers forward Scot Pollard set to make his debut on Survivor, Wednesday night at 8 PM EST on CBS.

This season of the long-running reality show takes place in Cambodia, and is using the theme of brains-brawn-beauty to separate the tribes of castaways.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the 6-foot-11-inch Pollard will start the season as a member of the Brawn tribe, or as they are called on the show: the To Tang Tribe.

The new season, Survivor: Kaoh Rong, is the 32nd installment of Survivor, and figures to be filled with rough weather and challenging obstacles; both mental and physical. CBS even called it their “most grueling season yet.”

Scot Pollard played 11 years in the NBA, but before that, he was a member of the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team from 1993-1997. Pollard played for five different teams in the NBA, but Survivor will bring him an entirely new type of challenge.
