!! The Sole Survivor

[[folder: "Boston" Rob Mariano - ''Marquesas'']]

* TheAce
* ActionDad: Boston Rob know had his first daughter, Lucia.
* AffablyEvil: Charming, friendly, funny, and seems to be a genuinely nice guy. But heaven help you if he ever decides [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness you've become a liability]].
* AntiHero[=/=]AntiVillain
* [[VillainWithGoodPublicity Anti Villain with Good Publicity]]
* TheBadGuyWins: Though this time around he was hardly the villain he'd been in prior seasons.
** In fact, Jeff even went so far as to label him a "hero"! (Well, he is less of a villain than Russell...)
* BadassMoustache
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Natalie, which leads to the PetTheDog moment below.
* BoringButPractical: His gameplay this particular season. Even people who think he deserved it thinks this was one of the most boring seasons to watch because he had an entire {{Cult}} Worshipping him and nobody thought of removing him until it was too late.
* [[BoringInvincibleHero Boring Invincible Player]] / [[ShowyInvincibleHero Showy Invincible Player]]
* BornLucky: Gets dealt the equivalent of the Five of a Kind in Survivor. Comes back ''knowing'' the game from the previous ''three times'' he's played it, gets put on a tribe full of players willing to pledge UndyingLoyalty, manages to have the producers conveniently forget the "Russell factor" when hiding idols despite filming it after ''Nicaragua''[[note]]The clues were more vague and the idols were hid in less obvious locations. For some reason, Ralph manages to find the idol in plain sight, Kristina finds it in episode one, and Rob finds it in a not-so-hidden spot on a tree[[/note]] also has the luck to be put on one of the most imbalanced tribes ever[[note]]The Ometepes consisted of five people younger than 30; the Zapateras had only two.[[/note]], combined with the challenges that he had to compete in being mostly puzzles, and it's easy to see how he won.
* TheBusCameBack
* CameBackStrong: In ''Heroes vs. Villains'' he had his weakest performance ever, coming in 13th place after just 18 days and not even making the merge.[[note]]In ''Marquesas'' he came in 10th place and lasted 21 days, being voted out immediately after the merge. However, ''Heroes vs. Villains'' had four more players so while Rob officially came in a lower place and lasted a shorter time than in ''Marquesas'', he was the eighth person voted out of the game while in ''Marquesas'' he was the seventh. So whether or not he did worse depends on your point of view.[[/note]] In this season he dominates the game from the beginning and walks away the winner.
* CharacterDevelopment: Just compare this Rob with the smarmy, overconfident SmugSnake from [[Characters/SurvivorMarquesas Marquesas]].
* TheChessmaster
* {{Cult}}: Turned Ometepe into one, at least according to Zapatera. Rob himself preferred to a military metaphor.
* {{Determinator}}: To the point of collapsing after an Immunity Challenge win.
* DisproportionateRetribution: See StopHavingFunGuys below.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: After four seasons and 117 days, the guy finally wins the game.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: This interview quote in regards to Julie's speech sums it up best:
-->"I didnít like the way she ripped into Natalie. She said Natalieís parents wouldnít be proud of her, but at the same time, what kind of example are you setting for ''your'' daughter?"
* FelonyMisdemeanor: Takes serious exception to Matt's behavior early on, reading both his relationship with Andrea and his good sportsmanship as strategic moves for down the line. Odds are they weren't.
* FlawlessVictory: Much to the chagrin of some of the fanbase. About as close as you can get without having a NoDamageRun or a unanimous jury.
* FourIsDeath: Averted and Defied. He is originally from the ''fourth'' season and this is his ''[[MyGreatestSecondChance fourth time]]'' playing the game.
* HappilyMarried
* MagneticHero:
* ManipulativeBastard
* MrFanservice
* MyGreatestFailure: As he'd already chosen his final opponents, he really did seem to regret having to vote out Grant when he did.
* [[MyGreatestSecondChance My Greatest Fourth Chance]]: Finally gets the win many claim he'd deserved a long time ago.
* [[NiceHat Nice Cap]]: As always.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: "Boston Rob!" they cheered as he jumped off the chopper.
* PetTheDog: When Natalie was being berated by the jury for her decisions, Rob quietly assured her that things were going to to be fine after the game was done.
* SoleSurvivor
* SpotlightStealingSquad: While Phillip ended up taking more of the screentime, Rob got a pretty large amount for himself too.
* StopHavingFunGuys: Votes out Matt for ''shaking hands'' with the other tribe. Apparently you can't be a good sport! [[invoked]]
** He saw it as Matt trying to forge bonds with the other tribe in anticipation of a merge, but seeing as Matt is just ridiculously nice it was almost certainly an innocent gesture.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: "Government jobs... stressful!"
* TookALevelInKindness: Technically it happened in ''Heroes vs. Villains'' but this is the first time since ''All-Stars'' that we see him in power and he handles it with much more grace. In ''All-Stars'' he gloated to the camera about betraying Lex, one of his best friends both in and out of the game, but here when he's forced into a similar situation with Grant he makes several apologies to Grant in confessionals making it absolutely clear that it something he hates having to do.
* TheUnreveal: When his tribe won a picnic ''[[MundaneMadeAwesome on a volcano]]'' he tells the ConfessionCam that he found another clue to the whereabouts of the hidden immunity idol. However, since he's already found said idol, he remarks [[LampshadeHanging that him reading the clue would be entirely pointless]] - and then promptly [[KillItWithFire flings the clue into the volcanic crater]]


[[folder: Phillip Sheppard]]

* BaldOfAwesome
* BerserkButton: Why did he shout down Julie during her Jury Speech? Because [[PapaWolf she insulted his skills as a father]].
** Four seasons later, he took Julie's trick and used it on [[Characters/SurvivorCaramoan Brandon Hantz]].
* BewareTheHonestOnes: His first Tribal Council, where he revealed the entire plan of his alliance.
* CloudCuckoolander: Boston Rob calls him the craziest person he's ever played against. Post-Game, Coach actually admitted to Philip via e-mail that he was crazier than The Dragon Slayer.
* EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped: His occupation throughout was listed as "Former Federal Agent?" Including the question mark.
** TheReveal: at the reunion show, Phillip's dad confirmed that he was indeed a former federal agent.
* FunWithSubtitles: Phillip would like to remind you that he is a former federal agent.
* ItIsPronouncedTropay: Could not pronounce Francesca's name despite being told repeatedly (referring to her as "Francesqua"), and putting the wrong emphasis on Andrea's name (Ondray-ah). He was only called on the latter once, but did it as least once more.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Prior to the first Tribal Council, he calmly asked Kristina just ''how'' she planned to gain the upper hand against Rob when his alliance was twice as big as hers. It's hinted that he anticipated Rob would split the vote (which Kristina clearly did not), which may have played a role in his tirade at Tribal Council.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: A decent, likable guy in real life; so much so that when he did a guest interview on Rob Cesternino's {{Podcast}}, it was very well-received, with many comments being "why wasn't ''this'' Philip on all season?"
** If any references to this season on other tropes are correct, ''this'' is [[OutOfFocus the quickest way to the cutting-room floor.]]
* TheNicknamer: Dubs Rob "The Mentalist," and Grant "The Assassin."
* ObfuscatingStupidity: This was his claim for how he got Boston Rob to take him to the final three. However, he handled Final Jury the exact same way he handled everything else up until that point, though a post-game interview indicated that [[WrongGenreSavvy he was worried that if he tried to explain himself it would come across as pandering to the jury]].
* OddFriendship: With Ralph (the only juror whose vote wasn't for Rob).
* OlderSidekick
* PoorCommunicationKills: As mentioned above, he had a rather poor jury performance.
* RedBaron: "The Specialist."
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Ended up taking the bulk of the screentime this time around.

[[folder:Natalie Tenerelli]]

* AloofDarkHairedGirl
* HiccupHijinks
* KidHero: One of the only people to compete on ''Survivor'' before their 20th birthday.
* LazyBum: Encouraged by Rob.
* LivingProp
* TheLoad: Not to the level of [[Characters/SurvivorMicronesia Chet]] or [[Characters/SurvivorNicaragua Dan Lembo]]. Only reason she got to the finals is because everyone thought they could beat her (and probably misplaced trust in Ashley's case).
* MaleGaze: There's even a camera shot where she's seen showing off her butt in front of her mother while happily giving it a gentle slap.
* MsFanservice: Possibly unintentionally, but the cameramen sure liked her. Continued post show as a Los Angeles Clippers dance squadmember.
* NaiveNewcomer
* NiceGirl: Hands down the nicest (albeit also the most naive) contestant this season.
* [[DumbassHasAPoint Quiet Young Naive Girl Has a Point]]: See WrongGenreSavvy below; coming off the heels of Russell's back-to-back losses and Rob's own loss in the first [[Characters/SurvivorAllStars All-Stars]] to [[TheQuietOne Amber]], it was actually a reasonable assumption that the strategist would take the fall and the nicer finalist could pull off the win.
* TagalongKid: The Youngest finalist at the tender age of 19 and was considered one of the biggest goats in Survivor History.
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]]: With Ashley.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Attempted the [[Characters/SurvivorSamoa Natalie White]]-perfected tactic of hiding behind the aggressive strategist and then win because the jury didn't want the one that cut their throats to win. It failed partly because she never made any big moves on her own (while ''Samoa'' Natalie worked the Galu ladies to off Erik), but also because she didn't appear to make the effort to get to acknowledge, let alone befriend, anyone who ''wasn't'' specifically in her alliance. By contrast, an instrumental part in Natalie ''White's'' victory was building bonds with the former Galu.

!!Jury Members

[[folder: Ashley Underwood]]

* ActionGirl: When she puts her mind to challenges, she really can win them! She's almost like the female Brett in this regards. Speaking of which...
* AlphaBitch: Of the Ometepe alliance.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Turned out to be a much stronger competitor in challenges than Boston Rob anticipated.
** Especially since she appeared to be TooDumbToLive and was literally OutOfFocus along with anyone not named Rob, Phillip, or Matt.
* DistaffCounterpart: To Brett. Both are players who spent the most of the season OutOfFocus before emerging from the shadows of the SpotlightStealingSquad and showing that they are ''not'' the LivingProp they were edited to be early in the season. Likewise, this causes the people in control of the game to think OhCrap. They also finished in final four and became a ShockingElimination (in her case, ''she'' was shocked).
* EleventhHourSuperpower: The reason she was [[Characters/SurvivorSamoa Brett's]] DistaffCounterpart.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Throughout the season, she would talk about how much fun it was to blindside another contestant. When ''she'' was eventually blindsided, she was less than a GracefulLoser about it.
* InformedAbility: Zig-Zagged. She was supposedly good in challenges, yet all the time we saw her pre-merge, it was Grant and Rob carrying the team with her in third or fourth, then getting out-performed. Rob also thought of her as a threat, when all she seemed to do is just whatever Rob said and then laid around at camp next to Natalie. Then suddenly, she actually starts winning. Rob immediately thinks OhCrap.
** {{Foreshadowing}}: If you look in the early challenges, you can see that Ashley actually isn't doing bad, even at challenges that are slanted towards the physically stronger Grant or Zapatera tribe. Later on; she winds up becoming Rob's second obstacle in the season.
* {{Jerkass}}
* LazyBum: Encouraged by Rob.
* MsFanservice
* OutOfFocus: Until the end when we had a surprising repeat performance of [[Characters/SurvivorSamoa Brett Clouser]].
* SpannerInTheWorks: Came the closest of anyone to completely upending Rob's plan.
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]]: With Natalie.
* WorthyOpponent: One guess.

[[folder: Andrea Boehlke]]

* ActionGirl
* BackFromTheDead: But like Matt, it ultimately means nothing because she's voted out immediately after being unable to do anything about the stranglehold Rob had on the game.
* TheCutie
* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: Outlasted Grant, Matt, and Mike, who were all very physical competitors. It should be noted that she did it in an endurance challenge which traditionally favors women, but even still.
* [[FarmBoy Farm Girl]]: Complete with stereotypical FarmersDaughter getup.
* FatalFlaw: Waiting too long before making a move against Rob - had she flipped to Zapatera when Matt came back, chances are she would have done better.
* GenkiGirl
* GenreBlind: While she could be considered so blind as to be TooDumbToLive...
* MsFanservice
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Between Rob planning out every single move of the game, Ashley and Natalie hanging around camp not doing much, and Phillip just being himself, she generally comes off as this (which ''isn't'' so GenreBlind).

[[folder: Mike Chiesl]]

* GeniusBruiser: Was strong in any challenge, including puzzle-based ones. Given that he's an ''Iraqi War Veteran'', it's safe to say that detail shows!
* TheHero: For the Zapatera alliance.
* LastOfHisKind: He was the first Zapatera voted out after the merge, but becomes the last Zapatera in the game through Redemption Island.
* MeaningfulName: [[HeroicBuild Just look at the guy!]]
* MrFanservice
* ReligiousBruiser
* RetiredBadass: Mike was a former Marine.
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Probst barely spoke to him at all.
* WorthyOpponent: Rob stated in the torch walk that he was glad Mike didn't win the final duel because he was legitimately afraid to have had to compete against him and sit against him in the finals. He was also one of the few people in the Rites of Passage who the final four ''didn't'' deliver a TakeThat to.

[[folder:Matthew Elrod]]

* BackFromTheDead: The first person to return from Redemption Island, though he was immediately voted out once again.
* BeingGoodSucks: Boy, does it ever.
* BrokenBird: The longer he stayed on Redemption Island, the worse and worse he got.
* {{Determinator}}: His run on Redemption Island was nothing short of incredible.
* HonorBeforeReason: He trusted Rob's alliance at the merge, despite having been blindsided by them earlier in the game. The result is him being blindsided once again.
* IdenticalStranger: When assessing the cast, Jeff points out his resemblance to [[Characters/SurvivorNicaragua Fabio]] but notes that their personalities are (near) completely different.
* MrFanservice
* ReligiousBruiser: Matt was very highly religious and strong in challenge. The main reason for his 7th place finish was because of Redemption Island
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Don't deny it - along with Phillip and Rob, he was the star of this season. He even almost beat Rob in the fan voting.
* SympathyForTheDevil: Towards Russell.
* TooDumbToLive: After deciding that he's going to remain loyal to the Ometepe tribe even after they blindsided him (which was pretty dumb already), he outright ''tells'' Rob that he was planning to vote him off if he flipped. Three guesses who goes that night.
* WarriorMonk
* WorthyOpponent: To the Zapatera alliance.

[[folder:Grant Mattos]]

%%* BadassBeard
%% * TheDragon: To Boston Rob.
* GenreBlind: Did you really think Rob was going to take you to the finals? Not once did he even think that Rob had done everything for his tribe and that'd likely win him the game, but was again surprised he was voted out.
%% * MrFanservice
* WorthyOpponent: Rob saw him as this. Truth be told, he's from the NFL - and during the tribal game (When the challenges were mostly physical or teamwork oriented), it really showed since he and Ashley were carrying their tribe.
%% * YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness

[[folder: Ralph Kiser]]

%% * BadassBeard
%% * TheBigGuy: To the Zapatera alliance.
%% * CloudCuckoolander
%% * CoolOldGuy
%% * FarmBoy
%% * OddFriendship: With Phillip.
%% * PluckyComicRelief
* SelfDeprecation: Calls himself a "self-proclaimed dumbass" at least once.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Stumbles across a Hidden Immunity Idol before Russell can find it himself, thus taking out one of his biggest strengths in the game.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Inverted; he went with deliberately weird spellings of names at Tribal Council, apparently for the hell of it. Notably he spelled Russell's name "Ressell," Krista's name as "Krasta," and Phillip's name as "Philite."
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: The only one to recognize Phillip's playing style for what Phillip thinks it is. He is also the sole member of the jury to vote for Philip as a response.
%% * TheUnintelligible: Not ''quite'' on the level of Big Tom, but pretty close.

[[folder:Steve Wright]]

* CallBack: Uses Rob's betrayal of Lex in ''[[Characters/SurvivorAllStars All-Stars]]'' as proof that [[CassandraTruth Rob has cut his close allies loose before, and can easily do it again.]]
* CoolOldGuy: The oldest male on Zapatera.
* FatalFlaw: Hating Russell so much that he took his eye off the million and threw the Immunity Challenge to get rid of him, which at the very least may have cost Zapatera a possible numbers advantage going into the merge. While you could blame much of the Zapatera Alliance for this, post-game Steve's been the only one who's really defended that decision whereas both Julie and David regret it.
* OnlySaneMan: Of the Zapatera once Mike was gone.
* OutOfFocus: started off making one think he might get far... but he slowly drifted OutOfFocus. We ''did'' get to see him give more than three confessionals, though.
* TeamDad: To the Zapatera Alliance.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Right after Matt's second blindside, he mutters "Let the fireworks begin."

[[folder:Julie Wolfe]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: When the idea to throw the challenge comes up, Julie is the sole dissenter of the alliance, pointing out that throwing challenges could give the other tribe momentum. Not only does this build up to her being the swing vote at Tribal Council, it also foreshadows Ometepe chain-winning immunities after Zapatera threw the challenge.
* {{Hypocrite}}: In Rob's eyes.
* OutOfFocus: While she did have a decent amount of screen time pre-merge, her only memorable moments of the season were duping Russell and then stealing Phillip's shorts.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Delivered at the Final Tribal Council.
* StrawFeminist: Gave off vibes of this at the Final Tribal Council.
* WhoWillBellTheCat: Once the challenge is thrown, her alliance prepares her for the task of gaining the trust of Russell's alliance and making them think she's the swing vote. Then Stephanie takes it UpToEleven, and the vote is tied three ways.

[[folder:David Murphy]]

* BadassBookworm
* {{Determinator}}: Give him credit on his final Immunity Challenge performance; it required him to hang upside down by his legs, which favored the women due to weight. Not only was he the last man standing, he held out for so long that when his body finally gave out on him he could barely even walk.
* GracefulLoser: The only jury member perfectly willing to admit Rob beat him (especially when casting his vote).
* HannibalLecture: Amazingly, he delivered one to the ''other members of the jury,'' telling them exactly why Boston Rob deserved to win the game in very harsh, uncompromising terms.
* InformedAbility: He's supposedly really good at puzzles, but when we finally get to see him do them, he loses both times due to overthinking them and taking too long.
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: Tries his damnedest to win his final Immunity Challenge, fearing that he'll be the next to go. He is indeed sent packing that night... because Rob saw his challenge performance and thought he'd be a contender to take out Matt.
* ShoutOut: After a Final Jury that mostly consisted of the jury members berating the Final Three for how they felt they played the game, what are the first words out of David's mouth before he delivers his HannibalLecture? [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus "And now for something completely different."]]
* TheSmartGuy: Of the Zapatera Six, despite his InformedAbility.
* WorthyOpponent: This guy totally could have won a previous season or gone down with a ''huge'' fight.

!! Voted Out

[[folder:Sarita White]]

* TheLoad: Why was she voted out near the merge.
* NiceHat
* NoodleIncident: She was apparently the person who made the pitch for throwing the challenge and getting rid of Russell, but the audience never sees this. It would explain why Russell targeted the physically stronger ''Julie'' to flip; when he normally targets girls who aren't physically strong like Sarita.
* StupidBoss: Very much this for the Zapateras.
* SympathyForTheDevil: Subverted, as indicated by how she acted at the Matt-Russell duel.
* TeamMom: David outright calls her this at one point.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Had less screen time than the other members of her alliance, though this is partly on account of being eliminated pre-merge.

[[folder:Stephanie Valencia]]

* [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fangirl]]: as revealed in her campaign video for [[Characters/SurvivorCambodia second chance]] campaign video, Stephanie was one to Russell Hantz..
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The moment Russell stepped off the plane she wanted to align with him, thinking she could get him to take her to the end game where she could easily beat him because he's [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk Russell]] [[EntitledBastard Hantz.]] It didn't turn out that way, partly because this time people knew whom he was.
* DiggingYourselfDeeper: As ''Survivor'' columnist Jayemel put it: "Did she not realize that [[UpToEleven her little]] [[TooDumbToLive tirade]] may have been what caused Julie to vote against her? Maybe Julie was on the fence and then decided she didnít want to risk her entire game by allying with Hope(less) and Associates."
* HairTriggerTemper: Diplomacy? ''What'' diplomacy?
* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: Until she has to try and do so too late in the game in the vain hopes of staying in over Sarita.
* MsFanservice
* PoorCommunicationKills: Wait, she says Russell is the only one who won't backstab the tribe? Talk about DiggingYourselfDeeper!
* {{Shorttank}}
* SpicyLatina
* AStormIsComing: Says it almost word-for-word when Russell's torch is snuffed.
* WrongGenreSavvy

[[folder:Krista Klumpp]]

* HeelFaithTurn: On Redemption Island, she's revealed as a deeply religious person and bonds with Matt, giving him her Bible when she leaves.
* OddFriendship: Russell-acolyte Krista and WarriorMonk Matt.
* TheQuietOne: It's been assumed this was her strategy, and it usually works. Unfortunately; she wasn't good enough in challenges so was dropped as low-man on the totem pole.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Easily the nicest member of her alliance with Russell and Stephanie. Chances are if those three were in the finals, she'd have won.

[[folder:Kristina Kell]]

* AlliterativeName
* FatalFlaw: Hating Rob so much that she overplayed by looking for the idol, never considering the possibility that this would make her an early target, or even that Rob was going to split the vote and negate the idol's advantage.
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: She fails to meet the requirements for being clever on account of her not realizing that Rob was going to split the vote.
** In fact, Probst more or less acts like her actions ''never happened''. Despite how common finding idols without clues has become, even Russell Hantz, the original idol-hunter, never had one in his hands ''before the first tribal council''.
* OutGambitted
* TooCleverByHalf
* WeHardlyKnewYe: If you watched the reunion episode, you probably wouldn't even ''know'' whom she was, along with everyone else voted out pre-merge sans Russell Hantz. She only even got camera time when Rob was referring to her hunting for the idol. You'd think that finding an immunity idol ''before the first tribal council'' would deserve mention, but Probst didn't even ''look'' in her general direction.

[[folder:Russell Hantz - ''Samoa'']]

* AssholeVictim: AndThereWasMuchRejoicing when he was voted out and eliminated for good.
* BaldOfEvil
* BeardOfEvil
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In an interview before the season, he declared that this season would become "Survivor history." Indeed: it became the first season that he was voted out. And he was the first member of Zapatera to get the ax.
* BornUnlucky: This time, he gets put on the ''smart'' tribe who has the insight to get rid of him fast.
* TheBusCameBack
* CardCarryingVillain
* DefiantToTheEnd
* FatBastard
* EntitledBastard: To the bitter, bitter, ''bitter'' end. He even wanted to ''sue'' the members of his tribe for daring to vote him off.
* [[TheyJustDontGetIt He Just Doesn't Get It]]: He used virtually the exact same strategy that he'd played in his past two seasons [[note]]There was even a deleted scene of him and his two girls stealing rice while the rest of his tribe was fishing[[/note]], only this time he was playing it with people that had the chance to see how he did things. When his tribe threw a challenge to get rid of him ("I'm dealing with a bunch of ''bitches!"),'' he failed to realize just what he did wrong.
* IdenticalStranger: To ''Series/ProjectRunway'' season 8 contestant Michael Costello.
* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: Briefly attempted to pretend that this wasn't true. It was a lie.
* InformedAbility: Again; we're told he's good at the game and he even says he's not going to be playing the same game he was before. Turns out, save for burning stuff, he starts doing the exact same thing. Right down to his alliance choices.
* ItsUpToYou
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk
* LaserGuidedKarma: Finally goes out early after trying to play the exact same game for a third time.
* TheNapoleon
* NeverMyFault
* NiceHat
* SmallNameBigEgo
* SmugSnake
* SoLastSeason
* [[SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome Sudden Sequel Elimination Syndrome]]
* TakingYouWithMe: After he lost the duel, and recovered from the below-mentioned VillainousBreakdown, he went into a tirade against the Zapatera observers and even managed to dupe Ralph into revealing that he had an idol.
* TattooedCrook
* TeamKiller: Only this time, the team knows ''what to do'' when he's around.
* TokenEvilTeammate: To Zapatera.
* {{Ubermensch}}
* VillainousBreakdown: Starts to cry after Matt beats him in the duel.
* WorthyOpponent: Seemed to regard Rob as this at the reunion. ''Definitely'' saw Matt as this.

[[folder:Francesca Hogi]]

* [[BlackDudeDiesFirst Black Chick Gets Eliminated First]]: First person voted out and loses the first duel.
* LovableAlphaBitch
* SitcomArchNemesis: With Phillip.
* TheUnpronounceable: For Phillip.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Voted out first and eliminated first. Not even spoken to or even ''SHOWN'' on the reunion show outside of her knees.
** She did return in ''[[Characters/SurvivorCaramoan Caramoan]]'', but unfortunately got voted out first again.
