"Survivor" doesn't usually recruit players with Minnesota ties, but the show is making an exception for this upcoming season.

Reed Kelly, 31, may be best known for appearing in Broadway productions of "Wicked" and "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark." But around these parts, he's simply the son of former St. Paul Mayor Randy Kelly.

Kelly will compete against his boyfriend, composer Josh Canfield, in a season in which loved ones will be pitted against each other.

Kelly isn't the highest profile contestant. That honor goes to former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker.

"Survivor: San Juan Del Sur" premieres Sept. 24 on WCCO, Ch. 4.
