Name (Age): Hali Ford (25)
Tribe Designation: No Collar
Current Residence: San Francisco, CA
Occupation: Law Student
Personal Claim to Fame: Catching a huuuge wave last winter in Kauai.
Inspiration in Life: Clara S. Foltz- First female lawyer on the west coast and inventor of public defense. I admire her trail-blazing approach to law and life. My law school, UC Hastings, refused to admit her based on sex, so she sued them and graduated at the top of her class (while raising five children).
Hobbies: Surfing, jiu jitsu, motorcycles and whatever comes my way.
What is your favorite sport? Jiu-jitsu and surfing.
Pet Peeves: Not maximizing time and resources.
3 Words to Describe You: Tenacious, free and focused.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1. Law school bar review book - so I can stay sharp, plus it doubles as a journal 2. A pen and journal - to map out strategy 3. Ukulele - because it lifts the spirits and could become useful in other, non-musical ways
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Parvati Shallow because she is fun and vivacious, but more than meets the eye, always planning, calculating risks both strategic and social. She is physically strong and undaunted by rejection and resistance. We also have matching tats.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: The game itself. It is the ultimate personal challenge and something to tell the grandkids.
Why You'll "Survive" SURVIVOR: I'm inimitably resourceful. Last summer, I caught a fish in a plastic grocery bag while camping and cleaned and cooked the fish for friends. I'm upbeat and fun, so surviving socially will be no sweat. I also perform well under pressure.

Why Will You Be the Sole Survivor: I grab everything I do by the horns and don't let go until I get what I want. Survivor will be no different.[1]

Age: 26

Hometown: San Francisco, CA
Previously played on: Season 30: White, Blue, No Collar, Finished 11th & Jury Member
How have you changed since the last time you played? I’m back with a honed sense of self, a new passion for Survivor, and a vendetta from my wasted last game.
What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played? I easily make strong social connections with many personality types, I'm resourceful and handy when it comes to living off the land, and I'm decently smart. I'd say the most valuable skill I've learned since my last game is how to play Survivor. I've also become a bonafide criminal-defense attorney, which involves battling cop shenanigans on the daily, which I expect may be a thing in this game.
What are you most proud of from the last time? NOTHING. Honestly, I would not put my name on anything I did in the last game.
What, if anything, do you most regret? EVERYTHING. But if I must name only one regret, it has to be failing to switch strategies immediately at the merge.
How will you play differently this time? My head and heart were everywhere but in the game last time. This time, I'm going balls-to-the-wall. If it's a crime to play Survivor with abandon, take me to jail after the final Tribal Council. We've got some heavyweights in this game and I'm ready to claim their titles.[2]

Worlds Apart

Hali was on the Nagarote (no collar tribe), on which she quickly formed a bond with Jenn Brown. Her tribe won the first Immunity Challenge so they avoided Tribal Council on Day 3; however, they lost on Day 6. After the challenge they formed an alliance with Joe Anglim, and decided to target Nina Poersch for complaining that she was deaf all the time when she didn't need too. At Tribal Council, the votes were split between Jenn and Vince Sly. However Will Sims flipped to Hali's alliance and voted against Vince, he was blindsided in a 3-2-1 vote which shocked everyone. After losing immunity on Day 8, while Hali and Nina voted against Will to split the vote, the rest of her tribemates eliminated Nina. However, the no collars won immunity on Day 11 keeping them safe from Tribal Council. On Day 12 a tribe switch occurred. They lost their leader Joe and gained White collars Carolyn Rivera, Max Dawson, and Shirin Oskooi and blue collar Kelly Remington. The new no collar tribe lost the Immunity Challenge on Day 14. The tribe was getting annoyed with Shirin and Max because they were always strategizing so they were deciding which one of them they should eliminate. They eventually decided to eliminate Max. Carolyn betrayed her alliance with Shirin and Max and joined Hali and the others. At Tribal Council, Max was blindsided. They won immunity on Day 16 after the blue collars threw the challenge.

On Day 17, the tribes merged. Hali and Jenn were happy to get Joe back in their alliance and Shirin joined their side. Joe won immunity on Day 19. Before Tribal Council, Jenn told Hali she had the Hidden Immunity Idol. At Tribal Council, Jenn played her idol negating the seven votes cast against her blindsiding Kelly in a 4-1-0 vote which made Hali, Joe, and Shirin happy. On Day 22, Hali was targeted by the blue collar alliance because Joe won immunity. They tried to get Sierra on their side and then targeted Dan because of his misogynistic comments. Sierra was willing to flip if they could secure Tyler's vote to reach the majority of six. However, at Tribal Council, Sierra and Tyler stuck with their alliance and Hali was blindsided in a 7-4 vote which shocked her and her alliance.

At the Final Tribal Council, Hali asked Carolyn how her role as a mother disadvantaged her in the game and Carolyn explained that she fought hard despite being much older than most of the other castaways. At the end, Hali voted for Mike who won by a 6-1-1 jury vote.
