The Tribes

    Chapera 

    Saboga 

    Mogo Mogo 

The Sole Survivor

    Amber Brkich - The Australian Outback 

  • Born Lucky: Amber said she was lucky to be in an alliance with Boston Rob and to not be voted out at Final Tribal Council.
  • Catch Phrase: Surprisingly averted. Not once in this season does she say her old catchphrase of "Oh my god, it's so good!"
    • Mario from Funny 115 even wrote about it in his website, here is the paragraph,
    "Do you even have to ask if I went through All-Stars and counted the number of times Amber says "Oh my godddd, it's sooooo good"? Hell yeah, of course I did! But guess what? She never says it during All-Stars. Not even once. Amber must have watched Australia back in 2001 and gotten annoyed with herself too, because it's like she made a conscious effort not to say it at any point during All-Stars. And that superhuman ability to change and adapt is what made Lamber the single best player in Survivor history. Just admit it, she is now officially the best of the best."
  • The Chick
  • Dark Horse Victory: Did anyone expect Amber of all people to win going into the season?
    • A paragraph from Mario Lanza's Funny 115 says about this,
    "By the way, nowadays Amber is mostly known as being Boston Rob's wife. She is also known as the winner of All-Star Survivor. She beat the All-Stars, she was the best of the best, and by definition that means she is now the single best player in the history of Survivor. Isn't that depressing? Little Lamber is officially the best player in the history of Survivor. And it's true. Oh my godddddd. It's soooooooo true."
  • Diabolus Ex Machina: Subverted. The tribe switch should have been this for her but Boston Rob told Lex was going to take care of him if he saved her. Amber was built off of this to make the infamous deal that saved herself.
  • Fanservice Pack/Hotter and Sexier: Amber became very beautiful this time around. She even won "Hottest Female Castaway" in America's Tribal Council.
  • Irony: Compared to everyone else, Amber is easily the least memorable contestant before this season started. And she won.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: She was a part of the red Chapera tribe through all three of its iterations. Notable that by some impossible coincidence, she was the only one who didn't switch tribes when literally everyone else did.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • My Greatest Second Chance: The UR Example. She was the first person ever to win Survivor on their second attempt.
  • Official Couple: With Boston Rob.
  • The Quiet One
  • Romance on the Set: With Boston Rob. One of the more famous showmances in American television.
  • Shorttank
  • Sole Survivor
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Because of her relationship with Boston Rob.
  • Unexpected Character: See Irony and Dark Horse Victory.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Badass?: Frequently used as an example of how one can be an undeserving Sole Survivor. This often ignores the fact that Boston Rob had poor management of the jury.

Runner-Up

    "Boston" Rob Mariano - Marquesas 

Jury Members

    Jenna Lewis - Borneo 

    Rupert Boneham - Pearl Islands 

    "Big" Tom Buchanan - Africa 

    Shii Ann Huang - Thailand 

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Post-merge.
  • Ascended Fangirl: Actually uses the term "Pagonged" on-camera to describe what happened to Mogo-Mogo, and early on showed reluctance to vote out Richard Hatch "because he's the king" and it would be no fun to get rid of him early.
  • Chinese Girl: The UR Example for Survivor.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Her immunity win when she was the only original Mogo-Mogo left.
  • Dark Chick
  • Foreshadowing: In her Final words, she warns the others about Amber and how she slips through the cracks.
  • Graceful Loser: One of the only ones on the jury.
  • Last of her Kind: The last Mogo-Mogo left.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Doesn't win, but has a much stronger season than she did on Thailand and even gets a car out of the whole thing. She also placed the highest of all the original Mogo-Mogo members, who all finished in the top three in their original seasons - two of which are past winners.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Subverted. Only she ever refers to herself by her nickname ("Shii-Devil").
  • Plucky Girl
  • Surrounded by Idiots: She becomes furious when she discovers that no one left is remotely interested in recruiting her for a Shocking Elimination.
  • Tagalong Kid: To the Mogo-Mogo's. Ironically, she's the one who survives the longest.
  • Take That: What she literally screamed this to the old Chapera tribe after her Crowning Moment of Awesome immunity win.
  • Thanatos Gambit: Knowing she was on her way out at her last Tribal Council, she decided to try and stir things up a bit by declaring that her vote would be going to the player she thought was playing the strongest and would win the million if no one did anything about them. It went to Amber.
  • Token Minority: She was the first Asian Castaway on the show and one of two overall at this point.
  • The Unfavourite: The woman is treated like dirt the moment she's the only member of Mogo-Mogo left after the merge; while past seasons have had the dominant tribe at least pretend to put up with the tribe that would be gone soon, it's obvious to Shii-Ann that she is absolutely not welcome, which makes her Crowning Moment of Awesome above all the more satisfying (although even after she wins, they still don't even speak to her and act as though celebrating that she's won immunity is a bad thing and treat her as such.)
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: Mark Burnett once called her "the worst casting mistake of all time" for All-Stars. In universe, this is acknowledge when she's referred to in the F7 Reward challenge as "the least deserving to be an All-Star".

    Alicia Calaway - The Australian Outback 

    Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien - Marquesas 

  • Badass
  • The Cassandra: Sees exactly how the Chapera alliance is going to play out once she and Shii-Ann were gone and tries to get the people who were inevitably going to get voted out to do something about it. They didn't.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Before All Stars started, Kathy went to a psychologist to have them analyze some of the personality profiles of people she thought might be picked for this season in order to determine which players would be easiest to manipulate, hardest to trust, best to form an alliance with, etc.
  • Cool Old Lady
  • Determinator: How she won the first individual immunity challenge.
  • Graceful Loser: Zig-Zagged. She did voted for Boston Rob, who hurt her more. However, She liked him and disliked Amber for building on that final 6 deal Boston Rob offered to Lex.
  • Irony: In her last voting confessional before being voted out, Kathy said that Amber had no chance of winning without changing her her game. Guess who won?
  • The Lancer: To the Mogo-Mogo alliance.
  • Lady Macbeth: Lex has repeatedly claimed over the years that getting rid of Jerri over Amber was really Kathy's idea.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Subverted. She was 3rd place in her original season.
  • Never Mess with Granny: Won the first individual immunity challenge again. This particulary immunity challenge was very difficult. To specify, Kathy had to hold her breath to outlast all but one woman. Then Kathy and her opponent, who would be Amber, had to release 10 buoys underwater.
  • Plucky Girl
  • The Reason I'm So Disappointed In You Speech: To Rob.
  • Take a Third Option: During a challenge which involves knocking your opponent off a balance beam, Kathy forgoes trying to fight Boston Rob and proceeds to just sit on the plank, thus lowering her center of gravity(though ultimately Rob is still able to push her off).
  • Took a Level in Jerkass
