** In ''Marquesas'', Paschal makes a funny comment about how much he's enjoying the company of the three women he's with. He then steps down as judge because of a sexual affair with a much younger woman. This also makes his relationship with Neleh a little bit icky.

** Russell Hantz started as one to just the older fans because being a SpotlightStealingSquad who steals time from the other castaways, doesn't realize that Survivor is a social game and was slow to understood why he lost. He was also accused of being a CreatorsPet [[https://youtu.be/kuRIbXXmcmg even though Jeff stated that]] [[CreatorsPest Russell is his least Survivor contestant.]] He became one to everyone in ''Heroes vs Villains'' due to becoming [[TookALevelInDumbass dumber]] and more being [[TookALevelInJerkass more horrid to his castaways]] than in ''Samoa''.
** Russell's nephew Brandon Hantz counts as a {{Scrappy}} as well, especially after his meltdown in ''Caramoan'' caused everybody to believe that he was the most [[WTHCastingAgency questionable casting choice]] out of all of the seasons.



** To a lot of superfans, Ozzy became one after ''South Pacific'' by him becoming a CreatorsPet as well as him [[TookALevelInJerkass taking a level in jerkass]]. It should be noted after he announced to be on ''Game Changers'', many people went on to [[WTHCastingAgency dislike that casting choice]]. And yet he proved the haters wrong and ended up being far [[TookALevelInKindness more likeable]] than he was since ''Cook Islands''.
** Shamar because of being a annoying Jerkass and LazyBum who absorbed screentime from the rest of his tribemates (some of whom was fans and applied).



** Missy and Baylor. Both who occupied their screentime with Baylor being a princess, while Missy playing MamaBear when any contestant called Baylor out on her bratty behavior, etc. Missy made it into the final three despite a hurting ankle, which viewers think it's unfair.



** Also from ''Millennials vs. Gen X'', Zeke ended up gaining some haters for going after David with his anxiety issues along with Brett. In addition, Zeke failed to live up some hype Jeff Probst stated about him stating that he was the main reason the main reason to watch this season and was overshadowed by players such as David, Adam, Michaela, and Jay. It only got worst he was cast for ''Survivor: Game Changers'' instead of some of the more popular male castaways of his first season. Zeke got pulled out from the scrappy heap in ''Game Changers''... for a bit as he regained his status as a {{Scrappy}} character due to his idiotic betrayal of Andrea and Cirie.



** J.T. Thomas has gotten this status due to his participation in Malcolm's very controversial exit from ''Game Changers'' after making a yet another [[WhatAnIdiot idiotic move]] in the game.
** Sarah Lacina became this in ''Game Changers''. At first it was due to her being one of the more [[WTHCastingAgency obscure choices]] for a season called Game Changers, but then most of the fanbase started to get sick of her due to how bland and monotone she was, and the [[CharacterShilling overly]] [[CreatorsPet positive]] [[SpotlightStealingSquad editing]] she's receiving --- especially since it took screen time away from the remaining fan favorites. Many people are hoping she won't win, fearing she's getting an obvious winner's edit. [[CaptainObviousReveal They were right]].
** Kellyn from ''Ghost Island'' is often considered to be a boring contestant on her season in which is not helped by the fact she keeps on constantly trying to pagong the Malolo tribe in which makes for boring television, and while her season was airing, many fans ended up hoping that she would get voted out. Eventually, she does, but in the episodes just beforehand, she takes a huge level in jerkass from being kicked around by the game and becomes evident as a CreatorsPet who overstayed her welcome.
** Also from ''Ghost Island'' there is Angela and Laurel. While both started off well by actually trying to play the game, they end up gaining plenty of hate late in the merge due to both being goats that hadn't done much except for allowing better players like Domenick and Wendell to control the game, despite both expressing the idea of overthrowing them. Laurel especially since she said she wanted to play for glory, which she certainly lacks.



** Joe Anglim has gotten a lot of hate thanks to accusations of him being a CreatorsPet and how people believe that the Edge of Extinction twist (aka a twist was heavily TaintedByThePreview) would benefit him.


** Michele's win in ''Kaoh Rong'' was very controversial at the time the season aired. However, after Ben Driebergen, and Chris Underwood won their seasons thanks to the inclusion of very controversial twists, people are more respectful towards Michele winning the game as she won the game without the inclusion of any twists. It also helps that while she's still well liked overall, Aubry has had progressively [[BadassDecay less impressive showings every time they bring her back.]]

* MorePopularReplacement: Both Christian Hubicki and John Hennigan from ''David vs. Goliath'' ended up filling regular archetypes on the show with the former having the nerd archetype like Cochran or Ryan, and the latter having the male professional athlete archetype like Jeff Kent, Brad Culpepper, or Scot Pollard. However, while a lot of castaways before them were [[BaseBreaker polarizing]] at best, Christian and John managed to be well-liked in the Survivor community as many people found the former to be endearing and the latter manages to be a GentleGiant instead of how much of the professional athletes tends to be treated as villains on the show.

*** The poor casting on both sides, with over half of the fans being recruits that haven't even seen the show, and over half of the favorites coming from two of the most disliked seasons, ''Redemption Island'' and ''South Pacific''. Not to mention that some of the choices for favorites were questionable at best, Francesca was a first boot, Phillip is [[BaseBreaker polarizing at best]], Brandon clearly has issues and was not mentally well in ''South Pacific'', Cochran was unpopular for his flip in ''South Pacific'.

** ''South Pacific'' repeated many of the negatives of Redemption Island, with the only differences being that the edit somewhat showed everyone off and was that a Newbie won (because the favored returning player lost the final immunity challenge). It also introduce [[BaseBreaker Base Breakers]] Cochran & Brandon, both of who returned for Caramoan.

** ''Caramoan'' has [[WTHCastingAgency questionable choices for favorites]] (including a first boot, Annoying SpotlightStealingSquad, and a [[MoodSwinger Mood Swinging]] TagAlongKid), poor editing that mainly shows off {{Jerkass}}es like Brandon and Shamar while ignoring everyone else. Brandon's breakdown [[BaseBreaker Broken the Fan Base]](see in the BaseBreaker/Survivor) and everything was in favor of the favorites. The post-merge stepped up but near the end, The Loved Ones Challenge became a DiabolusExMachina that eliminated a (though quite invisible) fan favorite, and the Winner become too obvious and a BaseBreaker. The cherry on top of this was the fact that the pre-jury boots was not allowed on stage to in order to cover up the absence of Brandon and Jeff consistently said that it was a great season despite [[HypeBacklash not many people can see it from his perspective thanks to the said editing]].

** Although she is more of a BaseBreaker in this regard, many fans find Lisi Linares from ''Fiji'' far too ridiculous and over the top to hate.

** Tina Wesson went from being the winner of the second second all the way to being the first boot of ''All-Stars''. However, this trope is slightly subverted when she had a better run in ''Blood vs. Water'' where she lead both of the post-swap votes that season.
