    Caleb was killed this week in a railroad accident in Alabama. He was featured last year on the reality series Survivor with his fiance Colton Cumbie. They were planning on getting married this fall in Conn. Colton was also on a previous season of the series. I keep thinking about and get more depressed. He was only 27. So sad I want to try but can't. Does news like this make you sad and depressed? If it does leave a few comments. His funeral is today at Crossville Memorial Chapel in Crossville Alabama at 3 pm. If you are able to attend please let me know.

    I pay no attention to reality shows but of course it is always sad to hear someone has passed, especially someone so young. Tragic. icon_sad.gif

    Caleb is on the right.

    He was a good "character" on Survivor - just as good as his fiancee was evil.

    Yes, this makes me quite sad. But I wouldn't intrude at his service. We don't really know celebrities, even if we welcome them into our living rooms.

    I was very saddened to hear of this. I like Caleb on the show, he was sort of a quiet, in the background guy that seemed to carry his weight in the camp, be very civil and kind to others. I couldn't see him with Colton who was truly evil at times but I feel bad for Colton because it sounded as though they really did love each other.

    Very sad news indeed. I enjoyed watching him and hope Colton and his family find peace and comfort during their mourning.

    Yeah on one of the sites I saw, Caleb said he may be a spoiled brat, but he's my spoiled brat.
