As the castmates begin to get eliminated, one manages to stand tall and take home the numero uno prize of being the ‘Sole Survivor.’ Season 46 of the series premiered in 2024, and Randen Montalvo was one of the castmates of the Nami Tribe. An automobile enthusiast, there’s a lot more to Randen than meets the eye. Here’s all that we know about him.

Randen Montalvo was born on September 23, 1982, in Brooklyn, New York, and currently resides in Orlando, Florida. Randen did his graduation from Seminole State College of Florida with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Information Systems Technology and specialized in programming. In 2015, he joined AT&T as an Assistant Sales Manager and slowly worked his way up to a Technical Consultant in AT&T’s Business Segment in the West Region.

Along with his full-time job he also has an interesting side gig. Since November 2010, he has been working part-time with the United States Air Force as an Aerospace Technician and Staff Sergeant. Even though Randen’s degree and experience have nothing to do with his part-time work, it was his love for engineering and sports cars that landed him there. Having an interest in the Air Force and a penchant to learn more about aircraft, he jumped at the opportunity and has been having an amazing time ever since.

Randen’s decision to relocate to another state and start a family while working a job and simultaneously being a part of the military was all done so he could create a foundation for his children. And it did pave the way for him to do things he has loved. He has always had a penchant for sports cars, extreme rides, and sports in general. In keeping with his long-standing hobby, he started ‘Another Car Journey.’ Randen’s motivation behind this passion project is to get himself involved with big brands such as BMW and Lexus and take a deep dive into their racing culture. He hopes to capture the processes that go into creating the monster machines.


He is looking to explore places while learning about automotive tech and design. In the process, he also hopes to discover more about himself. Being a huge fan of Lexus, particularly the LFA and F brands, he isn’t sure if either is the right choice as his potential next-track car. Randen’s process sees him take an in-depth approach to car culture and hopes to find a vehicle that will also push him to get back into performance driving for himself. Randen uploads his videos on his YouTube channel and the sheer dedication behind each car and explanation shows just how much he is dedicated to this. His social media profile is also an automobile enthusiast’s dream page as it is filled with stunning cars, race tracks, and more.
