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.
