For 17 years Carl Boudreaux has been a truck driver, much of that time as an owner/operator hauling a chemical tanker in Houston.

But, recently Boudreaux was a TV star. He was one of 20 contestants on the current season of the CBS hit reality show Survivor.

That is until he was voted off the island by other competitors.

Boudreaux is back home and back in the driver’s seat of his 2019 Volvo hauling freight.

The Truckers News Podcast had the opportunity to chat recently, and Boudreaux talked about coming from a family of truckers, hauling chemicals in Houston and about what it was like to compete on Survivor.
