5 Unbelievable Moments In ‘Survivor’ History

Published

on

Since 2000, Survivor has been one of the most iconic reality competitions ever. With nearly 600 contestants, there are enough moments to go around. With the new season Edge of Extinction, we can certainly expect more insanity on the island. We look at some of the series’ most shocking moments ever.

One Last Chance

When you get voted off the island, you miss your chance at $1 million. That wasn’t the case with Survivor: Pearl Islands, which aired back in 2003. While the Drake and Morgan tribes were set, another one joined the battle. The Outcasts tribe featured the first six eliminated contestants of Pearl Islands. As expected, this third tribe gained criticism from everyone, including host Jeff Probst. “I hated the Outcasts. I felt it went against everything we say the show is about — that if you are voted out, you are out of the game,” Probst told Entertainment Weekly.

Come From Behind Victory

Vecepia Towery is easily one of the sneakiest players in Survivor history. During 2002’s Survivor: Marquesas, she flipped back and forth between alliances. While many people accused her of being weak, she shocked everyone becoming the Sole Survivor. She won over Neleh Dennis, who helped her make it to the finals with a secret deal.

The Biggest Lie Ever

Jonny Fairplay became reality TV’s most hated person with one horrible lie. On Survivor: Pearl Islands, he tricked everyone into believing his grandmother died to avoid elimination. “Everybody believed him, including me. And what made it so delicious was that he was the most disliked person on the beach,” Jeff Probst told CBS.

A Way With Words

When it comes to speeches, nothing can top Erik Cardona’s speech at Survivor: Samoa’s Final Tribal Council. Fed up with Russell Hantz and Mick Trimming, Erik gave both men a piece of his mind. Erik, however, had nothing but respect for Natalie White, who was also in the Final Three. “You would say that you are probably the least deserving of the title of Sole Survivor, but maybe, just maybe, in an environment filled with arrogance, delusional entitlement, maybe the person who thinks that she’s least deserving is probably the most,” Erik said.

Not So Immune After All

In Survivor: ChinaJames Clement was completely unstoppable. If his stellar physique wasn’t enough, the Louisiana native held onto two Hidden Immunity Idols. With these idols, you’re able to prevent an elimination before votes are read at the Tribal Council. James thought he was safe, so he refused to use an Idol. Unfortunately, he was sent home on Day 30 with a shocking 5-1-1 vote. James did, however, win $100,000 for being the most popular player during the China reunion.
