Will the third time be the charm?

"Coach" Benjamin Wade was first seen on "Survivor: Tocantins," in 2009,  where he was the chief antagonist, known as the "Dragon Slayer." His colorful personality caused him to be one of the most controversial characters to ever play the game, and he made it to 5th place. He returned for the 20th anniversary season of "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains," as a kinder, softer, and more sympathetic character, although he was, of course, on the "Villains" side.  Unfortunately, he was the 9th tribal member to be voted off when outsiders to his majority alliance convinced them that Coach was not trustworthy.

Is the third time the charm? We'll find out when "Survivor: South Pacific" premieres on Wednesday, September 14th, on CBS. "Coach" Wade still owns his eclectic persona that viewers love from previous seasons, but the symphony conductor, men’s soccer coach and pastor promises that, “Coach 3.0 is going to be different than any time you’ve seen him.”
