Brad Culpepper is off “Survivor.”

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneer lasted 14 days on the CBS reality show.

He was booted after losing in Wednesday’s Redemption Island three-person competition comprised of walking across a balance beam, untying bags of numbered tiles and putting them in order from 1 to 100. He appeared to lose by only a few seconds.

John Cody and Laura Morett stay on Redemption Island in hopes of re-entering the main competition.

After Culpepper’s loss, host Jeff Probst asked the Tampa attorney how “Survivor” compared with playing professional football.

“I’d like to think I had more of an advantage in football,” he said.

Then he addressed his wife. “Monica, I came here as a shield and through my fault or no fault of my own, I became an anchor. You’re free. Wind’s blowing. Sail. Sail hard.”

She gave him a hug and kiss, they told each other “I love you, he threw his Tadhana buff in the fire and walked away.

But before the contest began again, the remaining castaways in the veterans vs. loved ones tribes had a shakeup of their own. They each drew new buffs and the tribes reformed with a mix of veterans and loved ones leaving them to form new friendships and alliances.

In the new Galang tribe, it appeared the five woman alliance was going to vote out the lone man, Vytas Baskaukas. But when Monica Culpepper learned that Kat Edorsson had mentioned Monica might need to go because of her constant strategizing, Culpepper questioned her commitment to the alliance and Edorsson was voted off to Redemption Island.
