Jeremiah Wood is a contestant from Survivor: Cagayan.

His role as an early swing vote on the Solana tribe earned Jeremiah the suspicion of most of his teammates, but he eventually worked his way into good standing as a member of the post-switch Aparri Alliance. This alliance's minority status after the merge would in time cost Jeremiah the game, as he was voted out in 8th place by Tony Vlachos' majority alliance.

3 Words to Describe You: Very happy, funny and outgoing.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? A North Carolina flag—it's where I was born and raised and is the greatest state; my softball jersey—the name of the team is my brother's nickname and he is the one who taught me to be a strong competitor and never quit; and a letter from my mom—she is my hero and has taught me to be the person I am today.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: J.T. Thomas, because he is nice ol' country boy who everybody loved, and Malcolm Freberg, because he is strong at challenges and very likable.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to prove to the world that a country boy can survive and win the million dollars.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" SURVIVOR: I know how to build, fish, hunt, build a fire, and am very strong at challenges.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I will be very strong at challenges, able to win individual immunity, easily make alliances and never give up.
Do You Consider Yourself a Brain, a Beauty or a Brawn? I figured Brawn. I'm not the smartest or prettiest guy.
Who Do You Think Has the Best Chance in the Game of Survivor: Brains, Beauty or Brawn? Honestly any tribe could win. If a Brain, they know how to talk and how to present the game in different ways to change people's thoughts and decisions. If a Beauty, looks and flirting sometimes goes a long way. Most of the time a girl can change a guy's mind easy with looks and flirting. If a Brawn, being strong and winning most challenges can put you in the final three easy!! My answer would be any tribe. It is just who is coming to really wanting to win the million.[1]


Jeremiah was apart of the Beauty (Solana) tribe. On Day 1, he formed a bond with LJ McKansas, Jefra Bland, and Alexis Maxwell. Solana won the first two Immunity Challenges. However, they lost their first immuinty challenge on Day 8. After the challenge Jeremiah, LJ, Jefra, and Alexis planned to split their votes between Brice Johnston and Morgan McLeod, however, both Morgan and Brice tried to ger him on their aide and vote against alexis. At Tribal Council, Jeremiah stayed loyal to his alliance. They split their votes between Brice and Morgan and eliminated Brice in the revote. Morgan was made at him for betraying her and Brice and asked him in front of the whole tribe, why he'd changed his vote and betrayed her. He claimed he'd just stuck with his first alliance. Solana won the next Immunity Challenge. On Day 12 a tribe swap occurred. Jeremiah, Alexis and Morgan switched to the new Aparri tribe. The new Aparri tribe won immunity on Day 14. After Solana won the next Reward Challenge Tony Vlachos gave Jeremiah a clue to a hidden immuinty idol to male him a target. Jeremiah later realized that the clue was the same one he had received while on the original Solana tribe and therefore useless to him at Aparri. They lost the Immunity Challenge on Day 16. After the challenge Alexis attempted to convince the rest of the tribe to vote out Jeremiah, believing him to be the most likely person to turn against them after the merge. However, at Tribal Council, Jeremiah was spared and Alexis was blindsided.

Jeremiah was able to make it to the merge which occurred on Day 17. Jeremiah's alliance held a 6 to 5 majority over the Solana alliance. However, at the first post-merge Tribal Council, Kass McQuillen flipped to the Solana alliance blindsiding Sarah Lacina. Now Jeremiah's alliance was in the minority. At the next Tribal Council, Jeremiah and his alliance voted against Tony but Morgan was voted out. On Day 25, Tony and Woo Hwang decided to work with the minority alliance and get rid of LJ. At Tribal Council, Jeremiah received three votes against him but LJ was blindsided. On Day 27, the team of Jefra, Jeremiah, Spencer, and Tasha Fox won reward. During the reward trip, Jeremiah, Spencer, and Tasha tried to convince Jefra to align with them and she agreed. However, after the Immunity Challenge, Jefra told Jeremiah that she would not align with them. Spencer told Tasha and Jeremiah that he had a hidden idol, and they decided to vote against Woo. At Tribal Council, Spencer played his idol on himself, but it was all for naught as the majority alliance targeted Jeremiah, sending him to the jury.

At the Final Tribal Council, Jeremiah berated Tony for swearing on the lives of his wife and daughter; he asked Tony if they existed, to which Tony confirmed that they did. Jeremiah stated that breaking a promise on a loved one goes against his values. Then he asked Woo if he wanted to win and he said yes. Despite being angry at Tony, he still voted for Tony to win which he did in a 8-1 vote.
