Caleb Bankston has died at the age of 26.

The Survivor: Blood vs. Water contestant lost his life after the train he rode on derailed on Tuesday (June 24) in Birmingham, Alabama.

Caleb was an amazing man and friend,” fellow contestant Aras Baskauskas shared to People. “One of the sweetest and most sincere humans I’ve ever come across. I am gutted by his loss. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

Caleb is the third Survivor contestant to pass away since the show premiered in 2000.

In case you didn’t know, Caleb‘s fiance Colton Cumbie was also on the CBS show twice. The couple was reportedly set to get married this October.

Survivor's Denise Martin is a Liar

Survivor: China‘s lunch lady contestant Denise Martin may not have won the $1 million prize but her sob story about being demoted from lunch lady to janitor during Sunday’s finale earned her $50,000 on behalf of producer Mark Burnett.

Now, Nancy T. Lane, the superintendent of the Douglas Public Schools in Douglas, Mass., is saying that Denise lied to America. Apparently Denise had been promoted, not demoted, from lunch lady to janitor per her request.

“Yeah, I watched my own jaw drop when she said that, because it’s absolutely not true,” Lane told EW. “I can empathize, having been a working mother. It’s tough to work those night shifts. But she took the job; that’s the job she took leave from [to do Survivor]. If she wants to go back to the day shift, she should apply when one comes open… It’s difficult to grasp. We did nothing but encourage her. She took leave for almost three months, she was given additional times off when ever she needed it. Now she says this on national TV…. Douglas is a nice little town. Everybody was rooting for her, the local paper was bending over backwards with positive articles. Then to have it end this way. Talk about a letdown.”

Bad Dreamz for Yau-Man

In one of the greatest moments in Survivor history, Dreamz kept the immunity necklace for himself, opting out of the car-for-necklace agreement with Yau-Man. An instant-suicide-by-jury move.

Sucks for Yau-Man, but he played a heckuva game!
