benjamin coach wade 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains': No. 17 Benjamin 'Coach' WadeZap2it is handicapping the “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains” contestants. Up now: Benjamin “Coach” Wade.

Disclaimer: We have no knowledge of any results from “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.” These posts are speculation based on our knowledge of previous seasons of the show.

Coach. Ugh. One of our least favorite players on “Survivor” ever. His holier-and-smarter-than-thou attitude made us want to throw a shoe through the television set. Every time he whipped out one of the platitudes from his Zen-of-the-Day toilet paper, we rolled our eyes so hard they almost fell out.

There is no way he lasts in “Survivor” this time around. We feel like fellow Villain tribe member Russell Hantz will want to smother Coach with a pillow from the start and will quickly work for his ouster.

Or maybe we are just projecting what we want to happen.

Coach comes to us from “Survivor: Tocantins,” along with Hero JT Thomas and Villain Tyson Apostol. We don’t think Coach will be around long enough to merge with the Hero tribe, taking a possible JT alliance off the board, and we don’t think Tyson will hold with Coach’s self-importance and blowhardiness (sure, that’s a word). Coach is (hopefully) exiting the game early.

Tomorrow: Parvati Shallow
