Top Ten Worst Survivor Tribes

These tribes were not good at challenges or camp life, leading to disaster.

The Top Ten

1 Ulong - Survivor Palau

This tribe is worst

They literally lost every challenge sorry stephanie lol

They didn't even bother with having a merge. That's how awful this tribe was. They just let them get obliterated.

I can't believe they had only 1 person left on it! They were awful! - Minecraftcrazy530

2 Matsing - Survivor Philippines

Even though this tribe is the only one to have absolutely no victories, this shouldn't be #1. Ulong has to be worse. Matsing only competed in four challenges and lost all four, whereas Ulong competed in fourteen challenges and won three, all of which were reward challenges. Also, about the merge: Malcolm and Denise were still in it when Matsing was disbanded and they both reached the final four, and Denise won. Only Stephenie remained in Ulong during the individual phase, where there were nine left, and she was sent packing at the final seven. This is why Ulong deserves to be higher than Matsing.

If Russell wasn't so bossy after all they would have won but in the in he screwed up and they lost every challenge.

Loses every single challenge, denise in matsing won the game!

They lose every challenge - ElSherlock

3 Foa Foa - Survivor Samoa

Come on that was just plain sad Foa Foa,I mean come on,shocked that all final 3 were from your side, I thought u were screwed second I thought about the merge, I mean come on u guys were just pathetic

Thanks to Russell, they couldn't seem to win anything. - alexcousins


4 Fang - Survivor Gabon
5 Manono - Survivor One World

This tribe lost a lot of challenges, Salani is better!

6 Ravu - Survivor Fiji

I feel like these guys were the worst. The Ravu tribe, no matter who was on it, just flat out lost.
A true tribal curse!

With Moto winning the huge advantage, Ravu were always going to be in trouble. The tribemates in Ravu were also somewhat dysfunctional.

Easily the worst in so many ways.. But that is mostly because of the dumb *ss haves-have-nots twist.

Yeah, the only reason they sucked was because Moto had a huge advantage over them. - Turkeyasylum

7 Luzon - Survivor Cagayan

Spencer was a condescending, arrogant, douche. This tribe had all the dysfunction.

For being the smart tribe this tribe lacked in any smarts. J'tia pulled that tribe down. I did not like anyone in this tribe.

Would have been completely picked off if it wasn't for the tribe switch-up.

The best was David and the worst was Spencer.

8 Maraamu - Survivor Marquesas
9 Manu - Edge of Extinction

Lost challenges daily

10 Espada - Survivor Nicaragua

This tribe had nothing going for them and fast!

I wasn't fair because they were older. - NicholasYellow

The Contenders

11 Zapatera - Survivor Redemption Island

They are losers expect for the Russell three who was their best players


They may have lost a lot but if they kept russell no ome can stop him from finding a idol

They were so stupid voting out Russell, with him, they could’ve done better!

12 Lopevi - Survivor Vanuatu
13 Gota - Survivor Caramoan

It wasn't fair because they didn't play the game yet.

14 Saboga - All-Stars

This tribe wasn't even put together that well. - alexcousins

15 La Mina - Survivor Exile Island
16 To Tang - Survivor Kaoh Rong

Lost 3/4 pre switch immunity challenges!

Worse than Luzon

They always lost

17 Heroes - Survivor Heroes Vs Villains

They Got rid of Cirie! Worst mistake ever!

JT should've given his idol to Sandra or Courtney.

They got rid of their best players and screwed themselves over in merge by giving the villains an idol. Not the worst physically but number 1 in stupidity.

18 Samburu - Survivor Africa



19 Morgan - Survivor the Pearl Island

So bad they can only win when drake threw their challenge... Osteen is lazy though not as lazy as Sean from marquesaa

They had trouble building there shelter

Osten was the worst

20 Brains - Brains Bronze Beauty

They lost every challenge but one

They just sucked

21 Malolo - Survivor Ghost Island

They were terrible.

They lost 5/7 immunity challenges before the merge. They sucked. - Blizzard

22 Tadhana - Survivor Blood vs. Water

It was very frustrating to watch them lose challenges over and over again. Not fun to watch at all.

23 Zhan Hu - Survivor China
24 Takali - Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X

Had a lot of idiots and three sane people (Jessica, David and Ken).

25 Mana - Survivor Game Changers

Even the post-switch Mana was bad at challenges. Face it, they would've lost before the next switch if they didn't blindside Malcolm at the double tribal.

They have continuously lost challenges and had tons of drama go on in their camp. Plus they have voted off many of their strongest players first

Caleb not caled sorry - musicalorange6


26 Coyopa - Survivor San Juan del Sur

Voted out their strongest player. Won only one challenge; one that was thrown by the other team

This team was an absolute wreck. Hunapu completely owned them before the merge. They couldn't even win a single immunity challenge.

27 Pagong - Survivor Borneo

None of the members of the tribe really knew how to play this game. They were constantly playing in the mud during camplife. And at the merge literally the 5 Pagong members voted their separate ways and the vote when Gretchen got voted out it was 4-1-1-1-1-1-1. Then the 3 members left made an alliance but it was too late. When they got to the merge, they acted like fools and it was the only time where it was actually entertaining to see Pagonging.

I know it was the first season, but Pagong had an open window to "Tagi" the other tribe with Sean's alphabetical voting. - Turkeyasylum

The tribe all voted for Probst at the first tribal.

28 Yawa - Survivor Heroes vs Healers vs Hustlers
29 Sook Jai - Survivor Thailand

Lost to far older players.

30 Angkor - Survivor Cambodia Second Chance
31 Salani - Survivor One World
32 Hunahpu - Survivor San Juan del Sur

They might have won a lot, but the whole flint fiasco puts them here - alexcousins

They only lost once, when a challenge was thrown

33 Moto - Survivor Fiji

Most detestable tribe ever.

34 Rarotonga - Survivor Cook Islands
35 Jabaru - Survivor Amazon

Had the weirdest members

36 Yaxha - Survivor Guatemala
37 Savaii - Survivor South Pacific
38 Solana - Survivor Cagayan
39 Morgan - Survivor Pearl Islands
40 Kalabaw - Survivor Philippines

Literally lost a lot of challenges. Tandang is better.
