Peih-Gee Law is a contestant from Survivor: China and Survivor: Cambodia.

During her run in China, Peih-Gee found herself on the outs for the majority of the season, but stayed under the radar despite her sometimes argumentative behavior in order to reach the merge. With her Zhan Hu Alliance down in numbers, she gritted out multiple Immunity Challenge wins and never gave up her efforts to disrupt Todd Herzog and the Fei Long Alliance. Her determination carried her to the final five, where she at last became the final Zhan Hu member to be voted out.

In Cambodia, Peih-Gee quickly found herself in the Ta Keo majority alliance, but after an unfavorable Tribe Switch and multiple heated arguments with Abi-Maria Gomes, she was blindsided by the new Angkor tribe at their first Tribal Council.

Peih-Gee Law was born in Hong Kong and moved to Los Angeles at a very young age. She attended an all-girl Catholic high school, from which she graduated with a 4.0 GPA (she also received an almost perfect score on her SATs, 780 / 800). She attended the University of California, Los Angeles, but got kicked out for low grades (partying got in the way). A former dancer, she appeared in music videos for Daft Punk, Crystal Method, Madonna, Janet Jackson and Maxwell. She also appeared in the 1998 MTV Music Awards as a back-up dancer for Madonna's performance of "Ray of Light." Although she did this while still in college, she never wanted to pursue it as a career. She was reinstated to UCLA after attending junior college and eventually earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature.

After graduation, Law moved to England to set up an import/export company for her aunt and uncle. She eventually moved back to the US and now works for her parents' jewelry business, basically running the operation: everything from designing, manufacturing, appraisals, sales and accounting. She is currently working on launching her own jewelry line.

Law is no stranger to travel. She spent two months backpacking in Southeast Asia. She spent two weeks on an island in Malaysia living in a hut with no running water or electricity and went scuba diving every day. She also trekked through the Northeastern part of Thailand.

Law enjoys snowboarding, scuba diving and dancing. She is a voracious reader, loves organizing board game night and playing video games. She considers travel and adventure to be necessities in life. She describes herself as free-spirited, witty, spunky, assertive, optimistic and open-minded. She is outspoken and strong-willed, with a tendency to think like a guy. She considers her biggest strength to be having a good attitude, seeing the brighter side of things and having the ability to focus all her will on the task at hand. Law is a member of Jewelry Importers & Manufacturers Association.

Law currently resides in Marina Del Rey, California, with her two cats, Butter (short for Butterface) and Sugar. Her birth date is April 7, 1978.[1]

Season: Survivor: China
Previous Finish: 5th place
What will you do differently this time around? "I've come to realize that making strong social bonds and friendships will get you much farther in this game (as in life) than any amount of logic or strategy. I think one of my downfalls the last time I played was not having the numbers come merge time, but my biggest downfall was my lack of a social game. I wasn't very good at making friends with people around camp, which doesn't get people on your side. I was bossy and too opinionated. This time around, I am going to enjoy myself more, make friends, and try to keep my mouth shut."



Peih-Gee, being of Chinese descent, thought it was amazing that she was competing on Survivor in China and believed her recently deceased grandfather would be amazed. After the conclusion of the welcoming ceremony, the castaways were asked to find the bag with their name on it. Peih-Gee's bag was yellow and she was placed on the Zhan Hu tribe. Peih-Gee felt usually serious when on the show, in contrast to her tribe, and believed that she was on the losing tribe. Zhan Hu did lose the first challenge of the season to the Fei Long tribe was comforted by Dave Cruser after she cried about the loss. Peih-Gee oversaw the construction of the shelter and asked Chicken Morris for his opinion. Chicken kept quiet about his opinion like he did in the past few days, which annoyed Peih-Gee. At Tribal Council, Peih-Gee voted against Chicken for his unwillingness to step up and he was voted out in a 5-2-1 vote.

The next day, Peih-Gee settled for being the number two to Dave. However, Dave's attitude and leadership irritated the tribe. At the Reward Challenge, Peih-Gee was unable to compete, as Fei Long won the challenge in two rounds. They also kidnapped Jaime Dugan until the next Immunity Challenge. When Zhan Hu returned to their camp, they discovered that it was flooded. Zhan Hu was unable to shake its misfortunes and they lost the Immunity Challenge again on Day 6. At Tribal Council, the tribe elected to vote out Ashley Massaro over Dave in a unanimous vote.

Zhan Hu managed to shake their losing streak when the women won the tribe its first challenge for reward and the choice to kidnap someone from Fei Long until the next Immunity Challenge. Zhan Hu chose Leslie Nease to join them. Leslie was impressed by the tribe's positive attitude, despite their losing streak. The women also learned from Leslie some of Fei Long's tribe dynamics while engaging in girl talk. Zhan Hu also managed to win tribal immunity, finally keeping Peih-Gee away from Tribal Council.

Unfortunately, Zhan Hu continued its misfortune when it was discovered that mold was growing in the rice and Zhan Hu lost the next Reward Challenge. As Dave was kidnapped, Zhan Hu had to do the work load he usually did. However, Sherea Lloyd sat in the shelter under the justification that she was saving her energy for the challenges. At the Immunity Challenge, Peih-Gee was partnered with Sherea. While Peih-Gee failed to score, Sherea scored a point for Zhan-Hu. However, Zhan-Hu ended up losing the challenge. At Tribal Council, Peih-Gee joined the tribe in voting out the hard-working, but annoying Dave over the stronger, but lazier Sherea in a unanimous vote.

On Day 13, Zhan Hu received a note instructing them to select two members of Fei Long who would become members of Zhan Hu. Like her tribemates, Peih-Gee assumed that Zhan Hu would just be gaining two members and Fei Long would be crippled, picking Aaron Reisberger and James Clement. However, Zhan Hu was floored when they received another note revealing that Sherea and Frosti Zernow would be transferred to Fei Long. James was a workhorse, but kept to himself, while Aaron was personable, though Peih-Gee felt that the latter should go first because he was more crafty and more likely to flip back to Fei Long. Peih-Gee talked to Jaime and convinced her to throw the next challenges, not only to eliminate the two biggest athletic threats but to also have even numbers when the tribes merge. The women's plans worked and Zhan Hu successfully threw the Immunity Challenge on Day 15. Peih-Gee and Jaime laughed about how badly they looked at the challenge. However, James was not amused and his attitude made the original Zhan Hus consider axing him instead. But at Tribal Council, the Zhan Hus stuck with their original target, with Aaron being voted out.

Peih-Gee was glad to have voted out Aaron, believing him to be one of the more powerful players in the game and hoped that the tribes would merge after they voted out James. At the next Reward Challenge, Peih-Gee told Sherea that Zhan Hu still had her and Frosti's backs. However, Sherea did not say anything. Zhan Hu lost the Reward Challenge and James was kidnapped by Fei Long. Peih-Gee was troubled by Sherea not acknowledging her and Jaime pointed out that Frosti did not even made eye contact with them and felt that they needed to win immunity. Despite losing her round and James attempting to throw the challenge, Zhan Hu would win the challenge after Denise Martin from Fei Long was unable to eat her balut. 

Peih-Gee attempted to sway James by pointing out that when Zhan Hu won immunity, they basically sacrificed one of their allies to protect him, but he was not interested. On Day 20, the tribes would merge and the castaways would move to Fei Long's campsite. The newly merged tribe was treated to a feast and entertainment provided by Chinese performers. Peih-Gee was the one to name the merged tribe Hae Da Fung. Later, the castaways were quizzed on events on the merge feast for immunity, which was won by Frosti. Despite Zhan Hu's attempts to take control of the Game, Jaime was voted out in a 7-3 vote. At the next Reward Challenge, Peih-Gee became a captain and chose Frosti, Courtney Yates, and Erik Huffman to be on her team, though they ended up losing the challenge. While the winning team was on the reward, Peih-Gee attempted to organize Courtney, Denise, Erik, Frosti, and herself into a voting bloc but the Fei Longs were not interested. At the Immunity Challenge, Peih-Gee became the fifth person out of the challenge, with Courtney winning individual immunity. Peih-Gee was upset because she felt she was the next target. At Tribal Council, however, Jean-Robert Bellande was blindsided in a 5-3-1 vote much to Peih-Gee's relief.

At the next Reward Challenge, Peih-Gee once again became a team captain. Peih-Gee picked James, who picked Todd Herzog, who picked Denise. The group of four was very uncoordinated during the challenge, costing them the win. A frustrated Peih-Gee blamed James openly for the challenge, while he quietly did the same to her. At the next Immunity Challenge, the castaways were given the choice of competing or eating burgers with all the fixings, fries, and drinking sodas. Peih-Gee chose to compete and would win immunity. At Tribal Council, Peih-Gee joined the tribe in voting out Frosti. After Frosti left the Tribal Council area, the castaways were quizzed on facts about China for a trip to Shaolin Temple. Peih-Gee beat out James and Todd for reward and picked ally Erik, as well as Denise, to join her. On the way to the temple, Peih-Gee attempted to form a Final Three alliance with them. At the Immunity Challenge, Peih-Gee failed to score and lost, with Erik winning immunity over Amanda Kimmel. Correctly suspecting that James had the Hidden Immunity Idols, Peih-Gee wanted him to play one and planned with Erik to vote for Todd Herzog. However, James did not use either of his idols and he ended up being blindsided in a 5-1-1 vote. 

Peih-Gee was relieved as she felt that James' blindside exposed cracks in the Fei Long Alliance. The next Reward Challenge was the Loved Ones Challenge and Peih-Gee was partnered with her father, Lawrence. The challenge was won by Denise and her husband, who picked Todd, Amanda, and their sisters, to join her on the reward. Peih-Gee was particularly upset, since she picked Denise to join her on a once in a life time experience at the previous reward. The remaining three at camp agreed that Todd's reaction to his other sister's miscarriage was theatrical and pre-planned. Denise talked to Peih-Gee on why she did not pick her. Peih-Gee asked Denise why she picked Amanda and she said that Amanda nearly fainted at Tribal Council. At the Immunity Challenge, Peih-Gee was trailing behind Todd, but was able to win because of Todd missing a question at the end. Peih-Gee attempted to convince Denise to flip and while Denise admitted she was on the bottom, she chose to stick with the Fei Longs, eliminating Erik from the game.

At the following Reward Challenge, the castaways had to shoot arrows at a board in order to score a point for the person's area that was hit. However, Peih-Gee only received one arrow from Courtney, who she thanked, though she was unable to score. Denise ending up winning the challenge and opted to bring Courtney and Todd with her. Peih-Gee was again disappointed that Denise did not choose her for the trip to the Great Wall of China despite Peih-Gee chosing Denise to join her on the trip to Shaolin Temple. Peih-Gee was also agitated with Denise's "I don't want Peih-Gee getting any stronger" comment. Back at camp, Amanda asked Peih-Gee on why she disliked her. Peih-Gee respected Amanda and for speaking her mind. The women bonded and fared well for themselves, finding fruit and catching fish. When the others returned, Peih-Gee and Amanda were annoyed with Courtney and Todd's complaining about the food. At the Immunity Challenge, Peih-Gee made it to the final round, but lost immunity to Amanda. Amanda and Denise contemplated voting out Todd for being untrustworthy. However, when the vote came, Peih-Gee was unanimously voted out over Todd.

At the Final Tribal Council, Peih-Gee's first question was for Todd on whether was he a strategist or was just carried to the end. Todd said he was not carried and pointed out that Jean-Robert called him a strategic threat and was correct. Todd also pointed out that he got the numbers by getting Amanda, Courtney, and Denise to pick off the Zhan Hus, then followed by a head-to-head battle with each other, and that he fought until the end. Peih-Gee turned her attention to Amanda, annoyed with how Amanda had presented herself at the Final Tribal Council. Peih-Gee wanted to know something that Amanda did better than Todd. Amanda said that her strategy was to be surrounded by people who she competes with in challenges and said that she suggested that they vote out James because of his athleticism and idols. Peih-Gee voted for Todd to become the Sole Survivor, which he did in a 4-2-1 vote.

Sole Survivor


Peih-Gee was one of twenty castaways chosen by the public to compete on the second chance season, Survivor: Cambodia. Peih-Gee was initially placed on the Ta Keo tribe. After the marooning, Peih-Gee become indirectly involved in an incident involving Abi-Maria Gomes after she found her missing bracelet in Peih-Gee's bag, implying to the rest of the tribe that Peih-Gee took it. Peih-Gee told Abi-Maria that she presumed the bag was empty because it lacked a name tag. The women agreed that the whole incident happened without intention to harm. The tribe was soon divided into two alliances of "old school" players consisting of Kelly Wiglesworth, Terry Deitz, Vytas Baskauskas, and Woo Hwang and "new school" players consisting of Abi-Maria, Kelley Wentworth, Shirin Oskooi, and Spencer Bledsoe, with Peih-Gee and Jeff Varner caught in the middle. After Ta Keo lost the first Immunity Challenge and immediately sent to Tribal Council with no time to scramble, Jeff and Peih-Gee opted to join the "new school" side of the tribe in voting out Vytas.

Despite their implied friendship, Peih-Gee continued to show disdain against Abi-Maria, who caught Peih-Gee talking behind her back with Shirin. Later, Peih-Gee, Shirin, and a few others later made fun of Abi-Maria causing her to go down to the beach and cry and was comforted by Terry. After Ta Keo lost the second Immunity Challenge, Jeff convinced his alliance to join with the "old school" players in targeting Shirin and Spencer for being strategic threats and Shirin was voted out at Tribal Council.

Peih-Gee's rivalry with Abi-Maria did not show signs of ceasing when a Tribe Switch was held the day after. In a random draw of buffs, Peih-Gee joined the new Angkor tribe. Upon reaching their new home, Woo wanted the former Ta Keo to use their numbers advantage to vote out former Bayon members Andrew Savage and Tasha Fox. Despite best efforts, Angkor ended up losing the next challenge. Before Tribal Council, the Ta Keo deal fell through due to Jeff being caught by Tasha trying to communicate with Kelly, now on Bayon, and called out in front of everyone, implying mistrust. Abi-Maria also realized that if she stayed with Peih-Gee and Woo, she would be on the bottom of their totem pole and told them outright she was voting with the Bayon members. At Tribal Council, Peih-Gee was blindsided, becoming the third person to leave the game in a 4-2 vote over Abi-Maria. Before leaving Tribal Council, Peih-Gee wished Woo good luck.
