Survivor: Pearl IslandsEdit
Assigned to the Morgan Tribe, Ryan was immediately outcasted for his physical appearance. Although a fan of the strategical game, Skinny Ryan struggled with daily camp life much to the akin of his more stronger tribemates. Spared from the first Tribal Council after the deceptiveness of Nicole Delma was exposed, Ryan did not improve his standing within Morgan after failing to prove his worth in a swimming challenge.
He was eliminated on Day 6 and joined The Outcasts on Day 19, unbeknownst to the remaining players. Upon his return at the sixth Immunity Challenge, Ryan sported a purple bandana and had shown signs of anger towards Morgan and was overcome when he had the opportunity to return back to the competition. At their respective Tribal Council, Ryan garnered the votes of Nicole and Lillian, missing out on one vote to return.
