  • » Aras Baskauskas, the winner of Panama, memorable for his tense rivalry with Terry Deitz, his alliance with Cirie Fields, and defeating future villain Danielle DiLorenzo in front of the jury.
  • »» Candice Cody, from Cook Islands and Heroes vs. Villains, notable for mutinying in her first season along with Jonathan Penner. In her second season, she became more strategic, but ultimately betrayed her tribe again, losing their respect and getting herself voted out.
  • » Colton Cumbie, from One World, known for his mean and blunt personality, Colton managed to control the Manono tribe during his time in the game due to the Hidden Immunity Idol, to the point of convincing his tribe to give the immunity they just won to the other tribe to vote out a disliked tribemate. He continued his reign of terror until the tribe switch, where he ended up being evacuated from the competition due to gastrointestinal problems.
  • » Gervase Peterson, from Borneo, notable for opposing the alliance strategy and for his derogatory comment, "girls are the stupidest things on the planet next to cows." 
  • » Kat Edorsson, from One World, best known for her naivete. She was notable for her wild and crazy antics and for being blindsided immediately after saying, "blindsides are fun". 
  • » Laura Morett, from Samoa, remembered as a strong female on her season and one of Galu's leaders in challenges, she was always at odds with Shambo Waters and was voted out after notorious villain Russell Hantz convinced a former Galu member to switch his vote.
  • » Monica Culpepper, from One World, notable as one of the strongest woman on her season physically, but was voted out due to being viewed as a physical and social threat by the opposing alliance after a tribe switch.
  • » » » Rupert Boneham, from Pearl Islands, All-Stars, and Heroes vs. Villains, known for his characteristic beard and tie-dyed shirt. He is considered by the fans to be one of the most popular players ever.  
  • » » Tina Wesson, the winner of The Australian Outback and also from All-Stars, known for being the first ever female Sole Survivor and for her alliance with Colby Donaldson. Colby ultimately took her to the Final Two over the more unpopular Keith Famie. This move not only gave Tina the win, but is also recognized one of the dumbest moves in Survivor history.
  • » » Tyson Apostol, from Tocantins and Heroes vs. Villains, known for his acid-tongued confessionals in Tocantins and rivalry with Sierra Reed. He is also memorable for being convinced to switch his vote to eventual runner-up Parvati Shallow by notorious villain Russell Hantz. This move is also recognized as one of the dumbest moves in Survivor history.
