Top 10 Worst Survivor WinnersSurvivor is known for having its fair share of legendary winners. And then there are their fair share of terrible winners.
The Top Ten
WHAT?! Why is he here?! (This is only for gameplay on the winning season if it's a returnee)
Loses a jury vote to everyone but phillip and natalie, the two biggest goats ever. Needed a rigged season to finally win and still loses to all but two big goats.
I do consider Rob one of the best players ever but also one of the worst winners since it took him 4 times to win. And Redemption Island was never a legit or balanced season in anyway.
Worst or 2nd worst to Ben. Really both are the same in that they were all but handed rigged seasons, Ben was just in a more blatant sense everyone could see (production handing him idols) while the Rob riggage was far more nuanced but still there nonetheless.
How he managed to go from running the game to being the sure vote off at every tribal until the end between 8 and 7 is beyond me. Production flat out gave him the idols. He sucks. Worst winner is between him and Rob for sure. - quackerpacker
You can't even say he was running the game, all he really did was follow the smart players and constantly bully the minority. - CloudInvasion
Worst winner ever. His season was so rigged. Does anyone seriously believe he really found 4 or whatever it was idols in a row, and only on the days before his impending boots, never before then. - morrislawes
Should be #1. Too much production riggage.
God awful, annoying, self-obsessed arrogant aggressive and overrated. Sigh.
Worst. Survivor. Winner. EVER. She's such a spoiled brat as Ozzy would say. And Ozzy should have won this season anyway.
Coach Should Have Won!
Another beneficiary of a bitter jury.
Only won because Malcolm choked at the end.
She did awful that season! I think thst Neleh should have won
Underrated winner. Nothing great about her game, but she was smart to ride Rob and let him take the bullets. Her strategic game this season was almost the same as Rob's, and she had a far better social game than Rob which netted her the win in the end. - quackerpacker
Rode Rob's coattail the whole time.
Which was smart strategy. Work as a pair with Rob to make the end and let him take the bullets for them. It is called smart Survivor. - morrislawes
Moria should have won.
Lulu Sharigan was better - vz
One of the dumbest to ever play the game!
Clueless fluke winner. can't believe he isn't way higher. - feisty37
Jenna is the worst winner ever! She did nothing but be lazy and flirt all season and rode coat tails the whole way and used her stupid ugly body because most of jury were dumb pervy young men and Annoying Heidi. Jenna is and always will be the worst and most undeserving winner in my opinion...
I hated her. I honestly would have voted crazy Matt in that Final 2.
Huge bitch. That she probably would have beaten Rob Cesternino in a jury vote just shows how flawed the jury voting process can be, one of the few things Russhole Hantz is correct on. - morrislawes
I was looking through the list thinking "Where's Wendell? " and poof, there he is. Domenick should've won.
Chris was one of his tribe's strongest competitors, was in the majority and had a plan gift wrapped for him...only to get himself voted out pre swap because he was an idiot. He only made it as far as he did because of a twist that had never happened before, made the final 4 because he got an idol for free at the final 6, and only won because being voted out so early meant he couldn't be blamed for most of the jury members' eliminations. At least Ben managed to make it to the final 7 before he needed to rely on twists to make the end.
He stayed on Edge of Extinction for 27 days then came back into the game and used idols so survive and gave up immunity to beat Rick in a fire making competition and win the season. He was in the game fora grand total of 12 days. At least the other winners were not voted out in the season they won.
He spent 28 days on a island He gets voted out third comes back in and wins Gavin and Julie had to actually play for 39 days Chris played for 11!
He was only in the game for 15 days and played an idol and won immunity
Eh, her social game was alright but that's about it.. Tara played the better game in my opinion. - vz
Made all of the wrong moves.
Like Boston Rob he basically won a free season designed for him.
Not really. If Erik made the finale with Cochran, Erik probably would've won. - CloudInvasion
This is probably the worst jury decision in Survivor history. Aubry should have totally won.
I rewatched this season, listed all of the positive and negative moves of Natalie and Russell. Equal positive moves. Russell has more negative. I realized she did a lot more than I originally gave her credit for
Only got the end because of Russell. Natalie gets too much credit for saving Russell from Erik but they would’ve still been down in numbers. You aren’t worthy of being a winner of survivor if you rely on someone way too much. by the way she did absolutely NOTHING the whole game.
Adam only won because of a heartbreaking story and tears. The entire final tribal council was changed after his season. The way Jeff addresses the jury on how to talk to the final 3 and what to ask them completely changed. It went from every jury member getting one chance to address any of the final 3 on their own terms, to having 3 different open discussion portions on specific topics. For example Jeff says "this is the outplay portion where you can ask any or all of them on how they outplayed". Adam also took credit for all of Hannah's moves and all she had to do was speak up and she would have won. Adam was the least deserving to win compared to every other winner because he took credit for everyone else's moves and cried his way to victory.
Zero social awareness, won due to having a parent with cancer. Yes his story is heartbreaking, but having Adam as a winner just disrespects the game and the players from Millennials Vs Gen X that played great. Adam simply flipped on these players to get to the end, and then cried in front of the jury to get the cheque.
He wasnt good at any part of the game but immunities, which won him the title of Sole Survivor, but strategically and socially he was a 0.
I agree, Amy Bitz was robbed - vz
