Rudy Boesch from season 1 Survivor has died.


Rudy and Richard Hatch, the fat naked gay guy, made for a unlikely odd couple in Season 1 Survivor. Rudy used that alliance to finish 3rd place on the show.

I admired Rudy's background with the UDT teams & Seals.

Rudy was 91 years old and died after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease
RIP

@HatchRichard
Ours was an interesting bond, Dear Rudy! You and I helped open minds and undermine predjudces. While your time here has passed, you will remain loved and iconic, dear friend!

Quote:
Starting in 1968 and 1970, Boesch completed two combat deployments during the Vietnam War, where he earned the Bronze Star for heroic action. During that time and later, Boesch set physical and operational standards at SEAL Team TWO. In 1987, he became Senior Enlisted Advisor for United States Special Operations Command. Designated the "Bullfrog", the longest-serving SEAL still on active duty, Boesch achieved considerable renown within the force for his physical fitness training regimens and his military appearance.

Boston Rob & Amber are still married and have 4 daughters.

I'm pleasantly surprised. Meeting & proposing on a Reality show isn't the best way to start a relationship, but it's worked for them. 15 years married and still going strong.

I didn't realize six cast members have died. Time Marches on.
