Top 10 Dumbest Survivor Moves

The Top Ten
Erik gives up Immunity - Survivor Micronesia

I think he has a new contender:
Sandra trades her idol to Denise - Winners at War
Sandra did that of her own volition. This guy got told to!

Definitely the dumbest move I've ever seen; if you're looking at trying to win. Was he hoping to get a date out of it or something? Actually, when you think about the fact that he was the only guy left with 4 girls heavily manipulating the direction of the game, it might have been a smart move; just to keep what little bit he had left of his sanity.

Just a stupid move. No other way to say it. Giving your immunity to another player: I've never seen that move work.

After the previous blind side, how could he trust any of them.

Woo chooses to take Tony to the end instead of Kass - Survivor Cagayan

One of the dumbest moves out there, definitely not as Dumb as Varner in The Outback or Tyson in Season 20, but dumber than the rest out the moves out there.

Woo could have won 1 million dollars. Instead he made one of the greatest winners road to victory even easier

I mean it was Chaos Kass! How stupid do you have to be to bring Tony, The guy who everyone didn't hate!?!

He could've won right there. I don't know what he was thinking. Kass was majorly hated, Tony wasn't. He choose Tony. IDEK.

James gets voted out with 2 idols - Survivor China

If you get voted out with 2 hidden immunities even if you are confident kep one play one

Does he have any commonsense what so ever

He thought a majority would be united.

Looks like someone repeated his blunder: Kellee Kim!

J.T. writes a letter to Russell and gives him his Immunity Idol - Survivor Heroes vs Villains

Don't stereotype genders!

10/10 intelligence, mah friend

Tyson switches his vote and accidentally votes himself out - Survivor Blood vs Water

Among the 5 very obvious overrated dumb moves, this was the dumbest move of them all. You really need to truly understand the circumstances going into this. While JT's and Erik's moves were bad and made very little sense, NOTHING about Tyson's move made sense at all.

That was a VERY bad move, & not only did he cost himself in the show, but, he also cost Boston Rob his game too.

This wasn't blood vs water he won. He voted himself off in heroes vs villains

This should be higher than 6. One of the most stupidest things I've ever seen

Colby takes Tina to the end instead of Keith - Survivor Australian Outback

It wasn't a dumb move in my opinion because he didn't seem to care.

He was actually happy that Tina won.

Jason thinks a stick with a face is an idol - Survivor Micronesia

How could you not realize that it is just a stupid stick

And then he goes out with a REAL idol.

Eliza: Is this a joke? This isn't the idol!
Jason: Yes it is!
Eliza: No, It's not!
Jason: Why would you think that?
Eliza: It's just a Stick!
Jason: Relax, it has a face on it.
THE DUMBEST SURVIVOR EVER

Ian jumps off the pole and gives Tom a million dollars - Survivor: Palau

I honestly agree with Ian's decision. If I'd sour a friendship, I'd rather jump off to rekindle it than win $1M.

I don't see this as dumb. Coby spilling Korror's secrets was definitely dumber than this.

Garrett has an open forum to decide who to vote out - Survivor Cagayan
Varner "outs" Zeke as trans - Survivor Game Changers

When it comes to overrated dumb moves, aside from the obvious 5, this would be number one because everybody all over social media and other things like that could not stop talking about it for a long period of time. I am glad that he has repaired the situation and he definitely regrets it. He was trying to save himself in some way, when in reality (he did not know this), he was actually going to stay in the game had he not made that move. 5 of the other players were planning to vote out Ozzy, Zeke among them.

Completely doomed himself and essentially ruined his own life, while also potentially ruining Zeke's

Don't know where Varner was coming from. But at least he regrets it.

Absolutely awful and unforgivable

The Contenders
Brandon gives up Immunity - Survivor South Pacific

This was a bad move but not as bad as Erik. At least he gave it to someone that voted with him. What makes these moves had is that they both got played by legends. The difference was that Brandon actually got played by Coach who told him the truth up until that point as they were in an alliance. Erik was told it you give up your immunity necklace I will trust you by Cirie who he was not aligned with. If he was a smart fan he would have known that himself Cirie and Natile would have made up the majority so there would be no need to give up the immunity necklace

This one was worse than Erik's. He thought he was playing with god. The biggest reason why it was worse, is because he probably saw Erik make that move and he should've known better after 23 seasons that it would not work out.

Lex saves Amber for Rob in exchange for protection, gets voted out - Survivor All Stars

Lex just made himself available to be voted out

There's two of these on the list.

What the hell was he thinking

Drew throws a challenge and gets himself voted out - Survivor San Juan del Sur

Again, you want numbers. If you need to throw the challenge to lose, you can just pick 'em off after the merge.

"Basically I'm a badass and a master manipulator."

Drew: I will throw this immunity challenge. I'm too good of a player.

LATER...

Jeff: Drew, the tribe has spoken. (snuffs his torch)

YOU'RE the dead meat, Drew!

Taylor steals food, blames Adam, gets voted off - Millennials vs. Gen X

Especially for a NONEXISTENT relationship.

Sean's Alphabet Strategy - Survivor Borneo
Zapatera throws a challenge to vote Russell off - Redemption Island

That is just pure stupidity. Especially since it was so early in the game. If it was right before the merge, I could understand, but it was just the beginning and they were only 2 people up.

Doesn't seem dumb at first, but they lose like crazy after that.

He was the glue that held the Zapatera tribe together.

Just lose some more will you

Chris goes home with idol in pocket. - Survivor Ghost Island

Did you REALLY think THAT many people would go along with a split vote? (Actually, they would. Next episode, everyone but Michael splits the vote between Michael and Libby.)

Your biggest rival Domenick just played a Legacy Advantage, and you still don't play your idol for an insurance policy? Unbelievable...

He thought the split vote plan would work. Wrongamundo!

Manono Tribe gives up immunity - Survivor One World

Colton had an awful strategy. Couldn't he have NOT fiund the immunity idol, so we could avoid his headache?

Cochran flips on Savaii - Survivor

He probably still would have lost but wouldve placed a little bit higher maybe like 7th or 6th

In South Pacific yes, in Caramoan no.

Cochran is the jerkiest survivor player ever!
Keith didn’t deserve to go home

Least he redeemed himself and had a near-flawless perfect game.

Production casts Sierra Dawn Thomas on over Natalie Anderson - Survivor Game Changers

I still think Sierra is a game changer, not as much as Natalie, but definitely a game changer.

Natalie was cast but bailed at the last second because of a family emergency, Sierra was CBS's backup

NaOnka and Kelly quit - Survivor Nicaragua

NaOnka wouldn't have lasted much longer, because of how much of a jerk she was. But Purple Kelly had no good reason to quit. Nicaragua is "the season of the quitters", as Holly almost quit, too.

Come on now. So many people work hard to play the game

You can tell Jeff wasn't happy. Not one bit.

Ken votes off David - Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X

I WAS SO MAD! If I was a jury member, that move would prevent me from voting him!

Lex saves Amber and votes off Jerri - Survivor All Stars
David Day 1 picks Garrett as the weakest person on the tribe - Survivor Cagayan

Why you were voted out.

Pick Jtia someone who really looks weak

Dreamz breaks his deal with Yau Man - Survivor Fiji

This move may have gotten him into the final 3,but it's also the doomed his chances of winning the game.The deal itself was pretty stupid,because even if had given Yau Man the immunity necklace like promised to,he probably would have been voted out.

Dreams lost basically after this. Honor your word man.
