Survivor: Pearl Islands

Assigned to the Morgan tribe, Ryan S. was immediately shunned from the rest of the group due to his physical appearance. Additionally, Ryan S. also struggled with daily camp life, much to the akin of his more stronger tribe mates. Though he was initially the target of Morgan's first Tribal Council, Ryan was spared after Nicole Delma's deceptiveness was exposed.

By Day 6, Osten Taylor had expressed his desire to quit the game to the rest of the Morgan members. However, Andrew Savage still expressed his desire to vote off Ryan S. instead. At Tribal Council that night, Despite heavy campaigning from his lone ally Lillian Morris, Ryan S. was ultimately voted out, 5-2.

Ryan S. later returned as a part of The Outcasts tribe on Day 19, unbeknownst to the remaining players. At the sixth Immunity Challenge, Ryan sported a purple bandanna with die jerks written on it. While The Outcasts won the right to re-enter the game, Ryan only garnered the votes of Lillian and Nicole and did not return to the game. Ryan voted for Lillian and Burton Roberts who did get to re-enter the game.
