I didn't like the wording of the last edit I made.

** On the Funny 115, Mario Lanza had an page called "Mike Skupin - Psychopath". On February 5, 2016, Skupin was arrested for his involvement in a Ponzi scheme and child pornography charges, which makes it less funny.

*** Russell Swan from ''Samoa'' and ''Phillipines''. In his first season, he was the hardworking leader whose charismatic leadership led his tribe, Galu, to dominate the Foa Foas. However, he is taken out by his own work ethic and tragically evacuated, even begging Jeff to stay despite being close to death. He then gets to return in Phillipines, however he gets another dose of bad luck, as his new tribe, Matsing, is the first tribe in Survivor history to never win a single challenge. After he loses the episode 4 immunity challenge, he is visibly upset with his tribe's performance, and he is voted out that night. After the show, he went into a depression. It's hard not to feel bad for this guy.

** Although Russell was the one who told his alliance to vote for Coach, though he abstained from actually voting for him himself (likely to get his jury vote). So it's not entirely mis-blamed.

** "Kimsea" is one for the fan pairing Chelsea and Kim from One World.

** Fiji has this in two parts: first is the Haves vs. Have Nots twist, which the producers and Probst believe was a failed experiment. The second is the infamous car deal where Dreamz went back on his word to Yau-Man. Since then, the car challenge was never used again.

** Will's remarks to Shirin require some context though. Shirin had [[TookALevelInJerkass uncharacteristically]] accused Will of hoarding food from the rest of the tribe, when it was clear he wasn't. She then [[BlatantLies denied doing this]] at Tribal Council when Jeff asked her about it. So in a sense, she was in the wrong too, but still Will didn't have to go ''that'' far.

** Kelley Wentworth in ''Cambodia''. While she wasn't necessarily hated, her inclusion in the ''Cambodia'' cast was quite a shock to many viewers, as she was an early boot in a season with a lackluster premerge. Come Cambodia, she emerged as a huge threat and has won over many fans.

*** Spencer from ''Cagayan'' due to him being the OnlySaneMan on a dysfunctional tribe.This is later proved even more post merge as he becomes a underdog who despite being out numbered has made it to the endgame. ** In terms of fan-favorite seasons, there's ''The Amazon'', ''Pearl Islands'', ''China'', ''Micronesia'', ''Heroes vs Villains'' (Which is Jeff's favorite season as well) and ''Philippines''.

Though he's considered less so in ''Cambodia''. *** Kimmi, who initially came from ''Australian Outback'', became one in ''Cambodia''. Despite being an Old-School player, she was surprisingly perceptive and cunning in Cambodia, being the first person to see that Jeremy was a legitimate threat to win, and her final tribal council is considered one of ''the'' most iconic. ** In terms of fan-favorite seasons, there's ''The Amazon'', ''Pearl Islands'', ''China'', ''Micronesia'', ''Heroes vs Villains'' (Which is Jeff's favorite season as well) well), ''Philippines'' and ''Philippines''.''Cambodia''.

*** ''Cambodia'' for Jeremy Collins, Spencer Bledsoe, Kelley Wenthworth, Keith Nale (his physical game this time around dips a little notch, but his strategic and social game is definitely much better), Kimmi Kappergerg, Joe Anglim and Jeff Varner (his rank is significantly much lower, but his gameplay here is much more praised).

*** Kimmi from ''Australian Outback'' and ''Cambodia'' becomes one, when you find out that after her divorce she was financially struggling to provide for her children. While it doesn't seem to be the case now, it makes her second try at a million dollars very sympathetic.
