“I’m a man of faith I’ve always believed in God I’ve always believed that he’s favored me and looked out for me but I’m not going to lie before my announcement in October I was terrified Y’all,” Romain said during his remarks Monday night. “I was scared I was insecure and I really didn’t know if I wanted to share that secret with the world.”

Rupert from Survivor Fame and Rupert’s Kids

Rupert competed on Survivor a total of four times. He was the first contestant to compete in back to back seasons, first appearing on Pearl Islands and then on All-Stars. Out of his four seasons, he placed highest on All-Stars, earning himself the fourth place spot. He was also awarded one million dollars on Survivor: America’s Tribal Council after being voted the fan favorite.

Rupert says this about Rupert’s Kids :

I have shown for 25 years how you take a person who has only been trained to hold their hand out and teach them… empower them.. show them that they have that energy and ability to take care of themselves. There is no one out there who can’t go to work.

Taking young men and women, that have never been shown how to make a legal living and raising them… by the time they are 20 or 30 years old, do you really think they’re ever going to get it? No… they’re going, for the rest of their life’s, to be holding their hand out… we’re creating a giant problem.

Former US Navy SEAL Ephraim Mattos

Former US Navy SEAL Ephraim Mattos teamed up with New York Times bestselling author Scott McEwen (American Sniper) to write the upcoming book, City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the Battle of Mosul — available everywhere on October 23 from Center Street / Hachette Book Group. City of Death tells the unforgettable story of an American warrior turned humanitarian forced to fight his way into and out of a Hell on Earth created by ISIS.

City of Death is the true story of Ephraim Mattos and what he witnessed while volunteering as a frontline combat medic during the historic battle to retake Mosul from ISIS – the deadliest urban combat the world has seen since WWII.

After leaving the US Navy SEAL teams in 2017, Mattos, age 24, flew to Iraq to join a small group of volunteer humanitarians known as the Free Burma Rangers, who were working on the frontlines of the war on ISIS.

Until being shot by ISIS on a suicidal rescue mission, Mattos witnessed unexplainable acts of courage and sacrifice by the Free Burma Rangers, who, while under heavy machine gun and mortar fire, assaulted across ISIS minefields, used themselves as human shields, and sprinted down ISIS-infested streets – all to retrieve wounded civilians.

The moment Mattos was shot was actually captured on video. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/3P0pZvn22xk

In City of Death, Mattos recounts in vivid detail what he saw and felt while he and the other Free Burma Rangers evacuated the wounded, conducted rescue missions, and at times fought shoulder-to-shoulder with the Iraqi Army against ISIS. Filled with raw and emotional descriptions of what it’s like to come face-to-face with death, this is the harrowing and uplifting true story of a small group of men who risked everything to save the lives of the Iraqi people and who followed the credence, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
