Paschal English (also known as Pappy) is a contestant from Survivor: Marquesas.
One of the most popular castaways at the time, he is the first person to be eliminated by the colored rock tiebreaker. This unfortunate ending was not matched for 23 seasons, until Katie Collins and Jessica Lewis suffered the same fate in Blood vs. Water and Millennials vs. Gen X, respectively.

^1 In The Sole Survivor, the vote ended with a 2-2 tie between Kathy and Neleh, forcing a rock drawing tiebreaker. Paschal drew the differently-colored rock and was eliminated from the game.
- In May 2010, Paschal abruptly resigned as a judge, following an investigation of numerous sex scandals involving affairs with numerous women, including a public defender.
- Paschal is the oldest contestant on Marquesas.
- Paschal's luxury item was an American flag.
- Paschal had the first confessional in Marquesas.
- Paschal was the first contestant to be the sole representative of their gender after a tribe switch.
- Paschal and Neleh Dennis voted for the same person at every Tribal Council they attended.
- Paschal is the second person to be eliminated despite never receiving a vote against him, after Michael Skupin in The Australian Outback.
- Paschal is the first person to be eliminated by rocks, followed by Katie Collins in Blood vs. Water and Jessica Lewis in Millennials vs. Gen X.
- He is currently the only male with this feat.
- Had current rules involving drawing rocks applied in his season, Paschal would have been eliminated anyway, seeing as how the player with individual immunity (Vecepia Towery) and the two players in a deadlock tie (Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien and Neleh) would be safe from the draw, meaning that Paschal would have been automatically eliminated by default.
- Paschal's elimination via the purple rock affected the subsequent seasons of Survivor. Due to contestants not wanting to force a tied vote, there would not be another tie until "The Best and Worst Reward Ever" in Palau, six seasons later.
- Excluding those who were evacuated or quit the competition, Paschal is the first castaway who did not have his name written down on parchment over the course of a season. He was followed by Jonathan Libby and Wanda Shirk in Palau, Sugar Kiper in Gabon, Rupert Boneham in Blood vs. Water, and Cirie Fields in Game Changers.
- Paschal is the only jury member to miss a Tribal Council. He was unable to attend the Day 38 Tribal Council because he was hospitalized.
