The Tribes



The Sole Survivor

    Sandra Diaz-Twine - Pearl Islands 


    Parvati Shallow - Cook Islands 

  • Action Girl: Parvati won the most immunity challenges with 3.
  • All There in the Manual: According to a post-game interview with Sandra, Parvati and Russell openly mocked the Heroes by reading the message J.T. wrote to Russell, which certainly would explain why the Heroes' votes didn't go to either of them.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • Anything That Moves:: Courtney used her confessional with "The Russell Impression" to accuse her of this.
  • Badass: Parvati won the most individual immunity challenges and her two idol play was considered one of the greatest in Survivor History.
  • Batman Gambit
  • Being Evil Sucks
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Despite her claim that Russell is her dragon, both of them are portrayed as the season's main villains. Rupert even lampshaded this in the final tribal calling them "a snake with two heads".
  • Cassandra Truth: She tried to convince Russell to vote out Sandra during the final four, since she knew Sandra had more friends on the jury than Jerri did. Russell, of course, believed it was the other way around.
  • The Charmer: Definitely toward Russell. Not so much the Heroes.
  • The Chessmaster
  • The Dreaded: Parvati was a huge Target because of Micronesia.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She drew the line at Russell voting out Danielle.
  • Even the Girls Want Her
  • Evil Genius
  • Failure Is the Only Option: She already lost the game after Danielle was voted off, since the Heroes would never vote for her and Russell in the end, and the Villains (including herself) would never let even a single Hero to make it to the final vote in fear of them winning instead.
  • Femme Fatale
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The sanguine to the final four, the Micronesia returnees and the returning winners.
  • Friendly Enemies: With Amanda. Sandra also could be considered a partial example as she wasn't a part of Parvati's alliance and Parvati knew that letting her into the finals would be handing her the win, but it was nonetheless clear that she enjoyed hanging out with Sandra a lot more than she did with Russell.
  • Gone Horribly Right: She knew that she had a target on her back going into the season, so she locked herself into an alliance with another dangerous player (Russell) as protection. It got her to the end, but by that time she'd grown so close to Russell that the Heroes on the jury saw the tight alliance as "a snake with two heads." And she ended up with none of their votes.
  • Greater Need Than Mine: Gave Sandra and Jerri the idols she had at the first tribal council of the merge.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: While she played a Stronger game and won more immunity challenges, Parvati's association with Russell cost her the win.
  • Hello, Nurse!
  • Hero Killer
  • It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time: Sure, keeping the idol she found with Danielle from Russell had its perks, but it was what led to Russell's paranoia about Danielle and Parvati working against him, which in turn led to Russell voting Danielle out and taking an ideal Final Three partner from Parvati.
    • Voting out Courtney and later on Jerri. Have you ever seen Pearl Islands, Parvati? Or even took one look at the Jury?
  • Large Ham: And how!
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Well, as long as she wasn't going after the Heroes' bananas; in that case, she was just an Alpha Bitch.
  • Male Gaze
  • Manipulative Bitch: Perhaps too well.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Older and Wiser
  • Poor Communication Kills: Suuuuuuuuurrrrrre you would have talked J.T. out of giving his idol away. And you said it in a pathetic feeble tone. Yeah, that's gonna sway him.
    • Would you think this was the same Parvati who won Micronesia?
    • Slightly justified, in that she knew she had no chance against Sandra during the Final Tribal Council.
  • Plucky Girl
  • The Runner-Up Takes It All: Subverted in a sense that she won in the past already. However a lot of people believe she should have won because she played the game in a style that more people are fond of.
  • Smug Super
  • The Tease
  • Token Evil Teammate: Played with. She is the only villain of the Micronesia returnees, though none of them are clean-cut heroes.
  • Too Clever by Half
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: Her social game is significantly weaker this season.
    • In addition, she also voted out Courtney and Jerri. Great potential goats.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Probably because of this.
  • Villainous Friendship: Mainly with Danielle, but also with Russell - at first.
  • Worthy Opponent: The only person that Russell clearly considers in this season. He even said that she should have won (coming from Russell, that's really something!). However, he states that he also considers Tom and Stephenie this too judging by his reactions to their eliminations (And stated that he was afraid to face those two) and has also implied this to Boston Rob and Colby.

    James Clement - China 

    Tyson Apostol - Tocantins 

    Tom Westman - Palau 

    Cirie Fields - Panama - Exile Island 

  • The Chessmaster
  • Elimination By Irony: Was voted out because Tom, Colby, and J.T. feared she'd be deadly at the merge, and that it was a good idea to sink her now while they had the chance - these were the exact reasons that she led the vote against Yau-Man in Micronesia.
  • The Dreaded: The reason J.T. turned on her along with Tom and Colby is due to her being a dangerous strategist.
  • Four Is Death: Fourth person voted off. She also had a strong history with that number. In Panama she placed fourth. In Micronesia, she became part of one of the most dominant Amazon Brigade in the series. Also, the seasons in between the seasons she played (Panama was Season 12, Micronesia was Season 16, and this very season was Season 20).
