Ever since its premiere in 2000, CBS’ ‘Survivor‘ has been providing us with sheer entertainment with the help of its fascinating cast members and complicated challenges. After all, this reality series places people from all walks of life in an isolated location and equips them with nothing but their own wits and will to fight for survival. Each of them subsequently strives to prove their grit and determination in the hopes of winning $1 million, but that’s easier said than done. However, Deshawn Radden from season 41 did make things look different, so here’s what we know about him.
Deshawn Radden’s Age and Family
From what we can tell, Deshawn Radden was born in 1995 and raised in the quaint suburbs of San Bernardino, California. Although he prefers to keep his personal life away from the spotlight, he has revealed that he considers his parents to be role models because they’ve shown him that love and compassion can exist even in the darkest of days. “My heroes are my parents because they truly took parenting personally,” he candidly told CBS. “They both come from challenging backgrounds and made it their duty to create a better life for my siblings and me.”
Deshawn further added, “But above all, I find it most heroic that they are and somehow raised five genuinely good human beings; with good hearts and strong moral compasses. That can be hard to come by these days.” Thus, it seems like his family deserves credit for the fact that he grew up to be “introspective and empathetic,” in his own words. Even though Deshawn hates being told what to do and is a bit “devious” when it comes to his game plans, he’s also resilient, charming, and caring, which again goes back to his background. In short, he can be described as a responsible and good guy.
Deshawn Radden’s Profession
With a drive to make something of himself and a passion for helping people, Deshawn Radden hopes to pursue a career in the medical field once his education is complete. As of writing, he’s a Podiatry student in Miami, Florida, meaning that his studies are branched out and focused only on treating disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity. It’s a very concentrated industry, yet it’s also intriguing. Apart from being a scientific individual with leadership skills, Deshawn is also interested in cooking, making music, and sports like tennis. Hence, he could probably multitask in the future as well.
To be honest, that’s not too far-fetched since Deshawn is not only a reality competition star now, but he also manages to accomplish every goal he sets for himself. The primary example of this is his appearance on the CBS production because he started watching the show when season 37, titled ‘Survivor: David vs. Goliath,’ was on the air, and less than three years after deciding to participate, Deshawn fulfilled the dream. It’s evident that Deshawn Radden is ambitious, courageous, and hardworking.
Is Deshawn Radden Dating Anyone?
As we mentioned above, Deshawn Radden keeps his personal life away from the limelight, so we can’t be too sure about his current relationship status. With that said, owing to the absolute lack of clues concerning his dating life on his social media platforms, we presume that the reality star is single at the moment. In fact, the 26-year-old only posted a few snapshots of his life as a medical student before shifting the entire focus to his time on ‘Survivor.’
