While it's been more than six years since fans saw Season 18 winner James "JT" Thomas Jr. compete on Survivor, the former Sole Survivor is ready to hit the sand running and get another chance at taking home another $1-million prize.

Always a tough competitor, Thomas won Survivor: Tocantins (Season 18), but came in 10th place two seasons later on Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains when a bold move only resulted in his own brutal blindside, and, for better or for worse, the gameplay would go down as the "dumbest move in Survivor history."

While reflecting on Survivor experiences, the memorable player says he still can't forget the upsetting loss during Season 20. 

In fact, when he enters Survivor: Game Changers, he has a distinct plan to avoid a second blindside: stay clear of aggressive game-player Tony Vlachos and try to make it to the end by aligning with Ozzy Lusth, Malcolm Freberg, and Brad Culpepper.

So how will this determined castaway fare in the wilderness when he's surrounded by 19 other game changers looking for the big win?
