Since 2003, HNE Reality has been helping people find their way to becoming the next big reality tv sensation and Benjamin "Coach" Wade is no exception. From his first appearance on Survivor Tocantins to Heroes vs Villains, HNE Reality has been along for the ride.

Benjamin Wade first came to HNE Reality, like so many others, searching for a way to be cast on a reality tv show. In his case, he was looking to become the next "Bachelor". At that time Shawn Mitchell, CEO of HNE Reality, recommended that he audition for an upcoming season of Survivor. With the help of HNE, Benjamin Wade has never looked back.

When Benjamin appeared on Survivor Tocantins in 2009 he simply stole the show. Survivor's host Jeff Probst said this of him, "Coach provided more memorable moments than anybody on the show in years. He is an absolute must if we ever do another all-stars."

Benjamin Wade is known by many names. As the head women's soccer coach at the Southwest Baptist University in Missouri, he is called "Coach Wade," but he also goes by “Maestro” due to role as an artistic director and conductor of a California symphony orchestra. A skilled musician, Benjamin was traveling the world playing the trumpet before most kids could even spell "trumpet."

Love him or hate him, Benjamin Wade is a character like none other. Whether you're talking about the world's record holder for the longest solo kayaking expedition, or the popular university soccer coach, or perhaps the successful maestro of the Sunsanville Symphony Society, there is never a dull moment in the life of Benjamin Wade. "Coach is a "Star" in the making", says Probst.
