3 Words to Describe You: Adventurous, determined and entertaining.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: If I were to be totally honest I'd have to say I relate to no one. I'm Troy Robertson, I'm like nobody else!
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I need this challenge for myself more than you will ever know! I want to know "how" and "who" I am in a major competition like this. This show is all I have thought about and concentrated on in the past 11 years!!! I need to know dreams come true.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" SURVIVOR: I'm a true outdoorsman. I can make a fire with two sticks. I am a swimmer and a natural born leader. I have the ability to make people the best they can be. I have great animal instincts and swim like a dolphin.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I believe it's my destiny. Truthfully, because I believe 100% that Survivor was created for me. I've been waiting 10 years and nothing will stop me! I have the skills and energy for every single category played on Survivor. There is not a single person on this planet more suited for this adventure![1]

Age: 54

Hometown: Miami, FL
Previously played on: Season 24: One World, Finished 8th & Jury Member
How have you changed since the last time you played? I’m mentally stronger and more prepared to be a social person around my tribe in camp life and the game, in general. I’m more aware that most castaways play this as a “game” and don't play it as real life, so I must adapt to that way of thinking.
What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played? I've always been 100-percent a team player. And, I also think of myself as a great motivator with the people I'm around. I like taking the leader role in a low-key way. I’ve lived my life as an adventure and I’m extremely in touch with nature. I’ve been a jungle boy my whole life so fishing, fire-making, and shelter-building come very easily to me. Also, I've been re-watching past Survivor seasons to pick up any clues I missed the first time around. I work my best to stay young at heart.
What are you most proud of from the last time? I’m proud that I stayed true to myself. You pretty much saw 100-percent of me! I'm happy that everyone watching, including my tribe mates, got to see all my emotions. Whether I was laughing, smiling, carefree, kind-hearted, ecstatic, sympathetic, happy, sad, angry, irritated, heart-broke, or you name it… you got to see it all. All of Troyzan! I'm also pretty proud of that fact that my rant of “This is MY ISLAND!” is considered one of the 10 most memorable moments in Survivor history. I'll look back years from now and still laugh at that moment!
What, if anything, do you most regret? I regret that I didn’t confront my enemies face to face more. I also would have called out Kim Spradlin (eventual winner of Survivor: One World) in front of the entire tribe daily! I was putting too much thought into winning challenges as opposed to letting the tribe see the obvious plan Kim had. My mistake.

How will you play differently this time? I’ve realized this is an “outwit” game more than anything else. I’ll try to keep the bullseye off my back by not showing ALL my cards, like the last time I played. And, at all costs, ALWAYS in ALL ways keep a person around who’s a bigger target than myself. Keep your friends close and kiss your enemies![2]


One World

This is my island!


Troyzan started the game on the all-male Manono tribe. He joined Colton Cumbie's Misfit Alliance along with tribe mates Colton, Tarzan SmithLeif Manson, and Jonas Otsuji. As Manono won the first two Immunity Challenges he was never in danger of being voted out until "One World Is Out the Window" where his alliance voted out Matt Quinlan. Troyzan agreed to give up immunity to eliminate Bill Posley.

At the tribe switch Troyzan was switched to Salani along wit tribe mates Jay Byars and Michael Jefferson. While on Salani Troyzan made an alliance with Jay, Kim Spradlin, and Chelsea Meissner. The alliance did not need to vote anybody out as Salani won the next Immunity Challenge and Colton was medically evacuated in the following episodes.

Troyzan won the first post-merge Immunity Challenge and despite thinking Jonas deserved to stay, he ended up voted with his post swap alliance in ousting Jonas. Knowing the women had the numbers advantage, the men were thinking of voting out Christina next. However, Kim lied to Troyzan about Michael wanting him gone. Motivated by his reignited anger towards Michael, he voted with the women, eliminating Michael at the next Tribal Council. Troyzan was shocked when the women in his alliance betrayed the alliance and blindsided Jay. The women continued voting out the men, with Troyzan being safe by winning individual immunity. In "Never Say Die", after Troyzan failed to win immunity, he took the loss hard and turned his back for the duration of the Immunity Challenge. That night at Tribal Council, despite an effort to mess with the majority alliance's split vote plan and get Christina out, he was eliminated for being the strongest male contestant left as well as his clashes with the women.

At Final Tribal Council, he voted for Sabrina Thompson to win who lost to Kim in a 7-2-0 vote.
