Top 50 Survivors


1. Sandra – Pearl Islands , Heroes vs. Villains
“Sassy Sandra” is the smartest person to every play this game she is an amazingly subtle player who manipulates others and always keeps the same mindset of as long as it isn’t me. She won Survivor Pearl Islands beating Lillian 6-1.
2. Boston Rob – Marquesas , All Stars , Heroes vs. Villains , Redemption Island
Boston Rob is the first person to play the game four times and is the most charming person to every play. Rob is a loyal and smart player who dominates in challenges especially involving puzzles.
3. Parvati – Cook Islands , Fans vs. Favorites , Heroes vs. Villains
The Femme Fatal of Survivor, No one can twist a lie and work someone to her advantage better than Parvati. She flirts and lies her way all over the island. She is a force in Challenges second only to Colby. She is a Mental and Physical player 100%.
4. Courtney – China, Heroes vs. Villains
Courtney is the definition or Brass. She takes shit from no one and is never scared to say exactly what’s on her mind (even if it’s rude). Courtney is smart she knows where to position herself in the game and she uses her mouth to her advantage. She is also one of the funniest people to watch.
5. Amber – Australia , All Stars
Robs better half, Amber is the cute cuddly lover .She also works hand in hand with her Husband Rob; they tear a path across the show with no regard for anyone. She is Smart and she uses her Husband as the front and quietly directs the show from the background.
6. Jerri – Australia, All Stars , Heroes vs. Villains
Jerri is the Original Black widow; she spun her sexuality all over Colby in Australia so much so that she was universally hated. She tried to redeem herself in All Stars but it was not until Heroes vs. Villains that Jerri became a Hero and we all realized that we loved her the whole time.
7. Rupert – Pearl Islands , All Stars , Heroes vs. Villains
Everyone’s Favorite Pirate, Rupert won the hearts of the world on Pearl Island when he stole shoes and wore dresses. He exposed his heart talking about bullying and was the toughest and strongest man out there. Rupert will forever be loved.
8. Yau Man- Fiji, Fans vs. Favorites
One of the singular smartest people to every play the game, he did not fall into the old man stereotype instead he used his wit and intelligence. Yau man was simply the shining star of his season.
9. Colby – Australia , All Stars , Heroes vs. Villains
The First Survivor Hero, Colby has been the poster boy for Survivor hero’s for over ten years, he still hold the record for the most challenges won.
10. Richard – Borneo , All Stars
The original Villain, without Richard there would be no Survivor today. Because of his crazy, brash and smart way of playing the game America was hooked. He was the first everything and anyone who has every played the game well did so because they learned from Richard.

11. Cerie- Exile Island , Fans vs. Favorites , Heroes vs. Villains

Cerie has such a survivor arch, she started as a housewife who was scared of leaves, she then turns into a hero and now has morphed into a villain/hero hybrid . She is Smarter than she every lets on and is truly exciting to watch.
12. Elizabeth- Australia

No one has used their Survivor Stardom better than Elizabeth; she is currently hosting the View. Elizabeth is one of a few people on this list that are only there because I loved watching them from week to week , not because they were great players but because they we sweet and fun.
13. Colleen – Borneo

Americas Original Sweetheart, Colleen was the final member of the Pagong tribe and a narrowly missed out on a shot at the final five in the first season of Survivor.
14. Todd- China
Todd is Smarter than crap, this boy worked china like a two dollar Hooker. I don’t think anyone has worked so hard mentally in the game of survivor he was lying and kissing butt every single day.
15. Jenna – Amazon, All Stars
Jenna modeled her game after Jerri, but where Jerri failed (Because she was really not a vindictive person) Jenna prevailed she was smart and Pretty she let no one stop her.
16. Eliza – Vanuatu , Fans vs. Favorites
Eliza was a generally hated player by her fellow contestants. I don’t know why I loved watching here from week to week and listening to her try and work strategy to her advantage. She is a really smart person who got the raw end because of personality differences.
17. Jonathan- Cook Islands , Fans vs. Favorites
The Self proclaimed “wandering Jew” Jonathan was a joy to watch on the show because he was so smart but did everything wrong. I would very much like to re-watch his season.
18. Michelle – Fiji
Michelle was the Colleen of Fiji, super cute and fun to watch. She also has one of the funniest moments of the show when she bites it during a Challenge.
19. Russell- Samoa, Heroes vs. Villains , Redemption Island

The Little Hobbit, Yes I hate him but he is great on this show. He is just a vile person and everyone but him knows this. He thinks he is god gift to survivor and I don’t think he will ever see himself for what he truly is, A Hobbit
20. Stephanie- Palau, Guatemala, Heroes vs. Villains
Stephanie is quite possibly the toughest and most badass person (male or female) to ever play Survivor. She is amazing in one challenge her arm is dislocated, she simply pops it back in and continues to play in the challenge.
21. Ethan – Africa , All Stars

Ethan is awesome; he has taken his survivor fame and made grassroots soccer, a nonprofit organization benefiting the cure of HIV. He has also battled Cancer and is truly as Inspiration for anyone truly an amazing person.
22. JT-Brazil, Heroes vs. Villains
JT is the most lovably country boy, he used his strength and charm to make him one of the most well loved survivors ever.
23. Kathy- Marquesas , All Stars
Poor Kathy, this woman pours her heart and soul into each season she plays and seems to always walk away hurt, I enjoy watch her but always feel bad.
24. Shi-Ann- Thailand , All Stars
Smartest person on Thailand and my favorite form that whole dismal season. She is the only one in All Stars to see through Rob and Amber.
25. Sue –Borneo , All Stars

Survivors Biggest Bitch famously delivered the Snake and Rat Speech and will forever be know by survivor fans as the woman who said Tapioca way too many times.
26. Ami- Vanuatu , Fans vs. Favorites

Ami is one of my favorites because a: She is so pretty b: She is so damn smart. I loved watching her both times she was on and would love to see her back again.
27. Bob- Gabon
Bob was the only likable person on Gabon and he was just s delight to watch from week to week, he reminded me of my Grandfather.
28. Yul –Cook Islands
Yul is such a cool guy, he is someone I wish I could meet and talk too, he is smart and calm he never got freaked out of nervous.
29. Jane – Nicaragua
Crazy Jane, this self proclaimed Country girl kicked some ass in her season and is sure to be returning on the next all Star Season.
30. Coby – Palau
Palau was an amazing season and one of my Favorite people was Coby, he was crazy, funny and sweet. I enjoyed watching him play and I wish he would return and play again.

31. Rodger-Australia
Who does not love Rodger? He is the sweetest guy to every play the game.
32. Coach- Brazil, Heroes vs. Villains
Never has there been someone as crazy as Coach, the man referred to himself as the dragon slayer and truly was insane.
33. Rudy – Borneo, All Stars
He was a grumpy old, homosexual hater on the first season but he was a riot to watch as he fumbled through challenge after challenge.
34. Christa – Pearl Islands

This poor girl was unjust accused of throwing fish out (Sandra did it). She was so sweet and such a tough competitor. She even held as much weight as the men during a challenge.
35. Ozzy – Cook Islands , Fans vs. Favorites
Ozzy is Muscle, he kicked butt on every single challenge in Cook Islands.
36. Stephen – Brazil
Stephen is the wizard of Brazil and the mastermind behind the entire season that year.
37. Shane- Exile Islands
Shane is crazy and during his stay in Panama he was detoxing and going through withdrawal from Cigarettes and his son; A bit insane but truly lovable.
38. Lex – Africa , All Stars
This hot headed, Tattooed crazy man was so enjoyable to watch in Africa and simply crazy in All-stars.
39. Bobby Jon – Palau, Guatemala

Bobby Jon was the victim of bad choices; he suffered because of other peoples mistakes. He was a physical threat and proved to be an enjoyable person to watch
40. Kelly- Borneo
She spent the entire season battling with her feelings and attempting to take our Richard and Sue, Kelly was the biggest Victim of the original Season of Survivor.
41. Tom- Palau, Heroes vs. Villains
The Shark killer from palau and the Survivor Fireman , tom was one of the coolest dads on survivor ever.
42. Jenna- Borneo, All Stars
Jenna was not one of my favorite players but makes the list because she to this day ahs the most upsetting episode ever. Her mother did not send in a tape and Jenna was the only one to not get to watch a clip from home.
43. Alicia – Australia , All Stars

She is on here for two lines “I’m Tired of you and the F**king Chicken” and “I will always wave my finger in your face”.
44. Big Tom – Africa , All Stars
Big tom was the most lovable persons in Africa and then became a scary man in overall in All-stars but I still love Big Africa Tom.
45. Ian- Palau

He is so stupid, but he was fun to watch in Palau and I wish he would be invited back for another all stars season.
46. Fabio – Nicaragua
This young man is not the smartest but he was able to win because he was the nicest and from week to week it was fun to watch his skate by.
47. Aras- Exile Islands
Aras battled the entire season against Terry and it made Exile island exciting to watch. He was young and did not have a lot of personality but he was cool.
48. Taj- Brazil
Taj was a sweet woman and a fun person to watch on the show, but she only makes the list because of her reaction at the reward challenge when she won a visit from her husband.
49. Heidi- Amazon
Jenna’s Cohort from Amazon, and a participant of the get naked for peanut butter challenge. The reason she makes my list is because of the way she talked about how she felt she was hated because she was so pretty.
50. Johnny Fairplay-Pearl Islands , Fans vs. Favorites
Survivors Biggest Liar, the instigator of the “dead Grandma” trick and too this day one of the smartest/nastiest people to ever play.
