1[[foldercontrol]]²²!The Tribes²²[[folder:Heroes]]²²* AHouseDivided²* BittersweetEnding: None of them made the final four, but at least the person who repeatedly attempted to be their SixthRanger won the game in a landslide against the BigBadDuumvirate.²* BlueIsHeroic: Literally. They're the designated good guys, hence the blue ColorMotif.²* TheBusCameBack²* DividedWeFall²* DwindlingParty: They had only won a single challenge prior to Rob's elimination. At that point, there were only five members left against the eight the villains had.²* {{Face}}²* FiveManBand²** Pre-merge:²*** TheLeader: Tom, being a former winner and leading the tribe on beach and during challenges.²*** TheLancer: Colby and J.T., both who are respected players. Colby was Tom’s right-hand, and J.T. helped make some of the game changing decisions in addition to also being a former winner.²*** TheBigGuy: Rupert, James and Stephanie. Ironically, all of the big guys got GameBreakingInjury.²*** TheSmartGuy: Cirie and Amanda, strategic players who have made it very far in their respective games.²*** TheChick: Candice and Sugar.²*** SacrificialLamb: Sugar and Stephanie, the first hero boots.²** After merge:²*** TheLeader: J.T., as Tom was voted out.²*** TheLancer: Colby, who stayed as a right-hand man.²*** TheBigGuy: Rupert, although his injury hindered him.²*** TheSmartGuy: Amanda, who doubles as TheChick since…²*** SixthRangerTraitor: Candice turned on the Heroes to save herself.²*** TheSixthRanger: Sandra. Or at least she tried, but the Heroes either deviated from her plans or outright rejected them.²*** TokenEvilTeammate: Candice.²* HeadbuttingHeroes²* TheHeroDies: They were literally wiped clean.²* MyGreatestSecondChance: Everybody's main goal. Averted by Tom and J.T. for being past winners.²* NotSoDifferent: From the villains. James, Candice and JT made openly villainous moves. (Candice even lampshaded this turn of events in her jury vote; see it [[ here]].)²* TheRival: To the Villains²* TeethClenchedTeamwork.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Villains]]²²* AHouseDivided²* BadassCrew: Not only did the tribe dominated the merge, but it produced three winners in addition to having two prior winners in its lineup. One of those past winners is actually the season's eventual SoleSurvivor (see below), while the other two are Boston Rob (in ''Redemption Island'') and Tyson (in ''Blood vs. Water'').²* [[TheBadGuyWins The Bad Guys Win]]: The final four are all villains. This extends to the ''[[Characters/SurvivorBloodVsWater Blood vs. Water]]'' season where Tyson, the only returning villain ultimately winning that season. Villain SixthRanger Candice and designated BigGood Rupert both didn't made that season's merge, with the latter being the first boot. Downplayed though as the winner of the season was the TokenGoodTeammate who did not want to be with the villains and repeatedly tried to work with the heroes.²* TheBusCameBack²* EvilVersusEvil²* FiveManBand²** Pre-merge:²*** TheBigBad: Rob, though he’s more a DesignatedVillain than outright bad guy.²*** TheDragon: Tyson, Boston Rob’s right-hand man.²*** TheStarscream: Russell, who eventually takes over as TheBigBad.²*** TheBrute: Coach and Jerri, who were much more physically competent this season.²*** TheEvilGenius: Parvati and Sandra, two former winners who had a great understanding of the game and made some impressive, manipulative moves.²*** TheDarkChick: Courtney and Danielle, who didn’t shine as much this season and instead stood by and supported their group, specifically Sandra for Courtney, and Parvati/Russell for Danielle.²*** SacrificialLamb: Randy, the first villain boot.²** After merge:²*** TheBigBad: Russell, who usurped Boston Rob’s position.²*** TheDragon: Parvati, Russell’s right-hand woman. Though she would argue they were a BigBadDuumvirate.²*** TheBrute: Jerry, though she was also the TokenGoodTeammate.²*** TheEvilGenius: Sandra, who manipulated Russell into voting out his ally Coach and ruined his plans to win by undoing everything he set up with the Heroes.²*** TheDarkChick: Danielle, who was a dark version of MoralityPet to Parvati.²*** TokenGoodTeammate: Jerry and Sandra, who were mostly villains by name.²*** TheSixthRanger: Candice.²* {{Heel}}²* LawOfChromaticSuperiority²* NotSoDifferent: To the Heroes. Rob, Coach, Tyson, Jerri and Sandra all showed their (somewhat) good sides this season, especially compared to Russell. Averted with Russell and Parvati, being the main Villains, and Courtney, who was on the same side as Sandra but just as snarky as she was in China²* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Their ColorMotif is red with black highlights and they're the designated bad guys.²* MyGreatestSecondChance: Everybody's goal. Averted by Sandra and Parvati for being past winners, though both are in the finals again and respectively finished in the top 2. Played straight by Jerri for being a more competent player and placing her highest rank to date (4th) and coming short on being in the finals. ²* TheRival: To the Heroes.²* TeethClenchedTeamwork²* WomenAreWiser: The female members, especially Danielle, are more calm and collected than the males.²[[/folder]]²²!The Sole Survivor²²[[folder:Sandra Diaz-Twine - ''Pearl Islands'']]²²Sandra will be returning for a third time on [[Characters/SurvivorGameChangers Game Changers]].²[[quoteright:250:]] ² [[caption-width-right:250:Last time I was mean, this time I'm meaner. You know I'll lie, I don't care. But I'll make up a good lie.]]²* AntiVillain: Combine [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Types I and III.]] Although some argue (even herself) that she's more of an AntiHero.²* [[VillainousFriendship Anti-Villainous Friendship]]: With Courtney and Boston Rob.²* ArchEnemy: Russell's. And that extended to the reunion.²* BadassBookworm: Physically, she's the weakest. However, she is undoubtedly clever and knows how to read other people. Which is how she managed to make it to merge and win. ²* BadassBoast: When casting the fatal vote for Rupert:²--> I'll write your name again, and if I'm up there in the final three you'll ''still'' give me the million dollar vote.²* BornWinner: First and (so far) only ''two-time'' winner.²* TheCassandra: FridgeBrilliance at the ''very'' best!²* CharacterDevelopment: She's less HotBlooded and [[SirSwearsALot foul-mouthed]] compared to ''[[Characters/SurvivorPearlIslands Pearl Islands]]''.²* CoolBigSis: To Courtney.²* DeadpanSnarker²* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Took every opportunity to mock and defy Russell, even in front of the Jury. The only reason it didn't turn DefiantToTheEnd was because Russell mistakenly believed she was a perfect "goat".²* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The phlegmatic of the returning winners. ²* ForcedIntoEvil: She hates being on the Villain Tribe, and despises everyone on it with the exception of Courtney and Parvati. She even lampshades it by complaining how she should be with the heroes, but they don't trust her since she's a "villain".²* FriendlyEnemy: She and Parvati seemed to get along pretty well, despite Parvati being Russell's ally. Still, given how Russell turned on her, it's not hard to see why.²* [[GuileHero Guile Anti-Villain]]: She was outright terrible in challenges, having had to sit out most of them, occasionally being the first to give up immunity because she knew she couldn't outlast the others. However, she managed to win by going under the radar.²* TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin: Sandra would go on to defeat Russell/Parvati in the final three after the pair (with Danielle and Jerri) systematically eliminated her entire alliance.²* HappilyMarried²* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Courtney.²* HistoryRepeats: Crowned as the SoleSurvivor for the second time. This is also her second time playing with Rupert.²* IdiotHoudini: At the reunion, Russell painted her as this.²* IndyPloy: When it became clear that her attempts to oust Russell wouldn't work, she turned it to her advantage by using him as a "goat", while also making him believe she would be his "goat".²** That's also exactly why the others eventually stopped trying to get him out. It worked best for Sandra because she was the one who most openly opposed him and because she was the only person who opposed him that got to the final tribal council.²* InSeriesNickname: "Rice" (based on an answer she gave in the Pearl Islands season: "arroz y gandules").²* IronicEcho: Her burning Russell's NiceHat.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Abrasive and lippy - especially towards Russell. However, she did try to save Courtney and the heroes. ²* LawOfChromaticSuperiority²* LittleMissSnarker: Very old compared to the usual examples, but nonetheless plays it straight if you take the trope by name.²* LivingLieDetector²* ManipulativeBitch: Tricking Russell into getting the girls to vote out Coach in an attempt to protect herself and Courtney for a while longer. While it did somewhat go in Russell's favor to make the heroes believe he was in danger of an all-girl alliance, it ultimately became his undoing as she told them the truth and he systematically backstabbed them - which gave her the five jury votes she needed to win.²* MeaningfulName: [[TheCassandra Well...]]²* TheNapoleon²* NobleDemon²* NonActionSnarker²* OlderAndWiser²* PluckyGirl²* RefugeInAudacity: In a game where most sensible players put on a friendly face and only trash talk other players in confessionals, Sandra will swear at people, throw people under the bus at tribal and even tell people she's working against them. Not only does she somehow get away with it, it actually works in her benefit by giving her a reputation for honesty which makes everyone willing to work with her. And then when she ''does'' lie or hide her emotions nobody sees it coming.²* TheRemnant: To the Villains tribe due to being the last remaining member of Boston Rob's alliance.²* RuleOfSeven: Won again after winning the seventh season seven years prior.²* SitcomArchNemesis: To Russell²* SoleSurvivor: For the ''second'' time.²* SixthRanger: Subverted. She attempted to be this ''numerous times'' to [[DesignatedHero the Heroes]], but they just didn't listen to her.²* TheSmartGuy²* SpicyLatina²* TalkingYourWayOut²* TimeForPlanB: Her adaptability in the game is like this.²* TokenGoodTeammate: Among the Villains, in addition to being TheSmartGirl, considering she tried to save the Heroes in a repeated attempt to be their SixthRanger. This is what helped her win in the end.²-->'''Sandra:''' I should not even be here! I should be with the Heroes!²* TrueNeutral: Invoked like she did last time - she'd vote out anyone as long as it wasn't her (with the exception of [[MoralityPet Courtney]], who she tried to save). And also because she never considered herself a villain, while also being rejected as a hero.²* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Her hiding place for the hidden immunity idol. When she played it, she even said, "I would hate to go home with the idol in my bra!" Also the place where she put her million dollar check after receiving it on ''The Early Show''.²* WorthyOpponent To Danielle and Parvati. The exact opposite to Russell.²[[/folder]]²²!Runners-Up²²[[folder:Parvati Shallow - ''Cook Islands'']]²[[quoteright:250:]] ² [[caption-width-right:250:Why would you hand a Villain your heart? J.T. gave Russell his heart today, and Russell is just going to stab it a million times over, and hand it to me. And I’m going to eat it. *laughs*.]]²* TheAce: Not only is she charming, crafty, and manipulative, she also is great at challenges, which saves her many times post-merge. There's a reason why virtually everyone, from the Heroes and the Villains, thought she was a huge threat and needed to go. There's a reason why she made it to the top three, despite a huge target on her back.²* ActionGirl: Parvati won the most immunity challenges with 3.²* AllThereInTheManual: 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.²* AloofDarkHairedGirl²* AnythingThatMoves:: Courtney used her confessional with "The Russell Impression" to accuse her of this.²* BatmanGambit²* BeingEvilSucks²* BigBadDuumvirate: Despite her claim that Russell is her [[TheDragon 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".²* CassandraTruth: 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. ²* TheCharmer: ''Definitely'' toward Russell. Not so much the Heroes.²* TheChessmaster²* TheDreaded: Parvati was a huge Target because of Micronesia.²* EvenEvilHasStandards: She drew the line at Russell voting out Danielle.²* EvenTheGirlsWantHer²* EvilGenius²* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: 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.²* FemmeFatale²* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The sanguine to the final four, the ''Micronesia'' returnees and the returning winners.²* FriendlyEnemies: With Amanda. ²** 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.²* GoneHorriblyRight: 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 "[[BigBadDuumvirate a snake with two heads.]]" And she ended up with none of their votes.²* GreaterNeedThanMine: Gave Sandra and Jerri the idols she had at the first tribal council of the merge.²* HardWorkHardlyWorks: While she played a Stronger game and won more immunity challenges, Parvati's association with Russell cost her the win.²* HeroKiller²* ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime: 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.²** Voting out Courtney and later on Jerri. Have you ''ever'' seen Pearl Islands, Parvati? Or even took one look at the Jury? ²** Though to fair about the Jerri vote, Jerri was more likely to vote out Parvati than Sandra and if she didn’t listen to Russel it was pretty clear she’d be the one gone. Jerri also ended up voting for Parvati to win, so it worked out in that respect.²* LargeHam: And how!²* LovableAlphaBitch: Well, as long as she wasn't going after the Heroes' bananas; in that case, she was just an AlphaBitch.²* MaleGaze²* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: Perhaps too well.²* MsFanservice²* OlderAndWiser²* PoorCommunicationKills: ''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.²** Would you think this was the same Parvati who won ''Micronesia?''²** Slightly justified, in that she knew she had no chance against Sandra during the Final Tribal Council.²* PluckyGirl²* TheRunnerUpTakesItAll: 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. ²* SmugSuper²* TheTease: While Russel falls for her machinations, the other villains are startlingly aware of TheDulcineaEffect and quickly mark her as a target. When asked for why Tyson was a huge threat she notes that he has many connections but not before arbitrarily calling him charming and funny. You can see Tyson's face going "Why would you say that?"²* TokenEvilTeammate: Played with. She is the only villain of the ''Micronesia'' returnees, though none of them are [[AntiHero clean-cut heroes]].²* TooCleverByHalf²* TookALevelInDumbass: Her social game is significantly weaker this season.²** In addition, she ''also'' voted out Courtney and Candice. Great potential goats.²* TookALevelInJerkass: Probably because of this.²* VillainousFriendship: Mainly with Danielle, but also with Russell - at first.²* WorthyOpponent: The only person that Russell clearly considers in this season. He even said that she should have won (coming from [[ItsAllAboutMe 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.²** Jerri also had this reaction, wanting to get her out as a jury threat, and even voting for her to win.²** Subverted with JT. He congratulates RUSSEL for HER blindside of him with his own idol.²** If Parvati’s attitude towards Sandra is any indication, she had this reaction to her (She even said she’d vote for Sandra if she was on the jury)²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Russell Hantz - ''Samoa'']]²[[quoteright:251:]] ² [[caption-width-right:251: I'm a villain, I think villains are smarter than heroes, because they don't mind stabbing someone in the back to get what they gotta get. It's a fact, it's a proven fact. Google it.]]²* AlwaysSecondBest: Joins Amanda as the second person to become a two time finalist but not win.²* ArchEnemy: Sandra's all game long, and Rupert's for a while. Both of them have said they ''prefer'' Jonny Fairplay to him.²* BaldOfEvil²* BatmanGambit²* BeardOfEvil²* BeingEvilSucks: While he ultimately makes it to the finals, he loses by virtue of everyone on the jury hating his guts.²* BigBad²** BigBadDuumvirate: With Parvati.²* BigEater²* CardCarryingVillain²* TheChessmaster²* CompletelyMissingThePoint: He insists that his strategy works and he's the best player ever because he made it to the end twice in a row, flat-out ignoring how he lost both times. ²* ControlFreak: ''Where even to start?!''²* EntitledBastard: Insisted that his strategy was so good that the jury should vote for him, despite the jury consisting almost entirely of pissed-off Heroes and former allies whom Russell had personally sent there.²* EvenEvilHasStandards: His only real moment of decency in the season is admitting to being worried about Rob when he passes out.²* EvilCannotComprehendGood: See GenreBlind and InsaneTrollLogic, ''just for starters.''²* EvilCounterpart: To a few other competitors:²** To Rupert, in terms of being each others' {{Foil}} in appearance and beliefs. Also, Rupert was the very first back-to-back player.²** To Amanda, as both were able to reach back-to-back Final Tribal councils by winning the final immunity challenges of their seasons, but then lost due to [[PoorCommunicationKills poor jury performances]].²** To Colby. They were the last two men standing, both are previous runners-up to blond heroines, and both of them hail from the south.²* EvilGenius²* EvilGloating²* FatBastard²* FauxAffablyEvil²* FromNobodyToNightmare: In a meta-sense, everyone has a good read on everyone else because they had previous seasons to base their assumptions on. None of them saw Russel's season, and they suffered for it. It's telling that his next tribe, [[Characters/SurvivorRedemptionIsland Zapatera]], would throw a challenge just to get rid of him.²* GenreBlind: He believes the jury is obligated to vote for the most aggressive player and doesn't realize that betraying nearly everyone who would go on to make the jury is a bad idea. He also doesn't seem to know Sandra is a prior winner who won with the exact same strategy she's using now. And while being the one player in the game nobody else is familiar with is an advantage, it's an even bigger disadvantage because he assumes he won his season and is playing with the exact same "winning" strategy.²** For that matter, he ''also'' doesn't seem to realize that Parvati is a former winner and has a bad habit of ignoring her sensible advice in favor of doing illogical things that only make it harder for him when it comes time for the jury vote.²* [[TheyJustDontGetIt He Just Doesn't Get It]]: Even after losing twice, Russell still can't comprehend that the jury isn't ''required'' to vote for him.²* HeroKiller²* HistoryRepeats: Became a finalist through villainous means and ends up losing on account of being a giant scum bag.²* HumiliationConga: [[Characters/SurvivorSamoa Samoa]]'s Final Tribal was ''gentle'' by comparison.²* {{Hypocrite}}: Criticized Sandra's social game, when his was his own undoing and hers catapulted her to the win.²* ImNotHereToMakeFriends²* InsaneTrollLogic: Highlights include suddenly turning on members of his own alliance out of paranoia, believing lies told to him by people who openly hated him, and expecting a pissed-off jury of people he backstabbed to vote for him to win.²* IRegretNothing: Russell was asked multiple times by the jury if he felt any guilt over his degrading treatment of other people, and he admitted that he did not.²* ItsAllAboutMe²* JerkAss: The reason why he lost.²* LargeHam²* LaserGuidedKarma: Russel was an asshole who bullied, manipulated, and back stabbed his way into the final three. He then faced everyone's ire.²* LastOfHisKind[=/=]TheOneGuy: The last male on the Villains tribe, and later the last male in the competition.²* TheNapoleon²* NeverMyFault: ²* NiceHat²* NotGoodWithPeople: To Danielle, a ''fellow former finalist'', on the jury:²--> '''Russell:''' "I'm not going to sit here and tell you what you want to hear; I'm going to tell you the truth."²* [[NothingCanStopUsNow Nothing Can Stop Me Now]]: Equally arrogant during this finale as he was during the Samoa finale. Equally surprised when he lost.²* PoorCommunicationKills: Not that he was going to win but he did gave even more crap answers to the jury.²* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: His polo shirt is red, while his hat and shoes are black.²* [[TheRunnerUpTakesItAll The Second Runner Up Takes It All]]²* RealityShowGenreBlindness: A scorched-earth strategy in a game about relationships and results is a losing strategy (also see TheScrappy).²* SanitySlippage: Several of his tribemates thought he was going through this near the end of the season, especially after Parvati whipped out a second immunity idol he didn't know about.²* TheScrappy: InUniverse to the jury. Seriously, compared to what these guys had to say about him, Samoa was nothing.²* SmallNameBigEgo²* SmugSnake²* SpotlightStealingSquad: Though not as bad as in [[Characters/SurvivorSamoa Samoa]], since the other players this season are equally interesting fan favorites.²* TheStarscream: To Boston Rob.²* TheFriendNobodyLikes: By the time the season was almost at an end, ''everyone'' hated Russell. Burning too many bridges and treating the only people who would side with him like crap will do this.²* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: Burned Jaison's stuff last season. He doesn't know that Sandra did the same thing to his hat while he was gone.²* TeamKiller²* [[SecondPlaceIsForLosers Third Place Is For Losers]]²* TookALevelInBadass: Became more competent in the physical game compared to Samoa, but...²* TookALevelInDumbass: Handled the other players even worse this time around.²* TookALevelInJerkass: Somehow it was possible.²* {{Ubermensch}}²* UngratefulBastard: To J.T., Danielle, and Jerri.²* VillainProtagonist²* VillainousBreakdown: He starts melting down when Parvati plays two idols at the merge. The realization that she ''wasn't'' just his docile minion makes him increasingly paranoid and desperate to one-up her, which ultimately results in him burying his own game and dragging Parvati down with him.²* WhatAnIdiot: Driving Danielle to tears (in front of the jury, no less!) right before voting her out.²* [[WrongGenreSavvy Wrong Season Savvy]]: [[ This video]] implies that he sided with Parvati and took Sandra to the final three because he figured he'd have to win since he's against past winners. Unfortunately for him, this isn't All-Stars.²* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: To everyone except Sandra.²[[/folder]]²²!Jury Members²²[[folder:Jerri Manthey - ''Australia'']]²[[quoteright:250:]] ² [[caption-width-right:250: I've been labeled things like, "She-Devil in a blue bikini", "The Wicked Witch of the West"...."Man Eater Manthey", that was my favorite one.]]²* AffablyEvil: Though she's on the Villains Tribe, she TookALevelInKindness and was a FriendlyEnemy to the Heroes.²* AntiVillain: Interestingly, she [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains slid on every scale of this]].²* AppropriatedAppellation: For years after ''[[Characters/SurvivorTheAustralianOutback The Australian Outback]]'', Jerri railed her perception as a villainess by the ManipulativeEditing. Yet during ''Heroes vs Villains'', she seemed to finally accept it and even embrace being on the Villains tribe.²* TheBaroness: The original.²* BeingGoodSucks: Inverted. She confides to Coach that being a villain is hard because she doesn't really betraying the people she'd formed alliances with.²* TheBrute: She's the only member of the villains tribe who was able to go toe-to-toe with the BigBadDuumvirate in physical challenges.²* CharacterDevelopment: You can actually trace a character arc through her three seasons. In [[Characters/SurvivorTheAustralianOutback The Australian Outback]] she's the arrogant, aggressive villain. In [[Characters/SurvivorAllStars All-Stars]], she tries to be nicer but it doesn't really pan out, particularly because she's dead-set on getting revenge on Tina and Colby. In Heroes vs. Villains, she's ten years older than she was the first time and has calmed down considerably. And this season sees the resolution of the Jerri-Colby feud -- Jerri cries and hugs him after he's voted out.²* DistaffCounterpart: To Colby.²* DudeMagnet: Considering the amount of ship tease she got with Colby and Coach...²* FieryRedhead²* FourIsDeath²* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The melancholic of the final four but the phlegmatic of the ''All-Stars'' returnees.²* FriendlyEnemies: Possibly to the Heroes as a whole, but especially Colby.²* MsFanservice²* [[MyGreatestSecondChance My Greatest Third Chance]]: This is her highest ranking in her three tries and is considered her best season. ²* NiceHat: She was the only member of the Villains tribe not to believe she was on the wrong tribe; hence, her black (Army) hat.²* OffScreenMomentOfAwesome: Her reconciliation with Colby wasn't shown in favor of [[CreatorsPet Russell]].²* OlderAndWiser²* OutOfFocus: There seemed to be a lot going on with her this season that got obscured by the focus on other players, primarily Russell.²* PluckyGirl²* RedBaron: The Black Widow. Her first confessional of the season makes note of a couple of these. Her favorite? "[[EroticEating Man-Eater Manthey]]."²* {{Revenge}}: In All-Stars it was Boston Rob's deal with Lex that ended up costing Jerri the game. This time around, guess which player she plays a role in getting rid of?²* ShipTease: She and Coach had some light flirtation, with the ship tease becoming more prominent as the game unfolds because they heavily trusted each other. The merge brings her and Colby together, with an unseen reconciliation deleted from the final cut.²* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Of the ''All-Stars'' returnees.²* SupremeChef: At least among the contestants. A deleted scene shows that Jerri handled a lot of the cooking by herself, stating that she loves cooking for herself and others. The other tribe members enjoyed it and Parvati was especially amazed at how Jerri managed to cook such good food in their current living conditions. This goes along with the time she made homemade tortillas during the second season that everybody loved and came at a good time when they were all starved.²* TallDarkAndSnarky²* ThirdTimesTheCharm: She still didn't win but this is her strongest season so far.²* TookALevelInBadass: She won an individual immunity and ranked better compared to her first two seasons.²* TookALevelInKindness²* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: During one Tribal Council, Russell named Danielle and Parvati as the only ones he trusted, leaving Jerri as the fourth man out. This appeared to {{Foreshadow}} Jerri flipping on Russell, [[note]]Jerri did the exact same thing to Tina back in ''Australia'', which led to Tina flipping on Jerri's alliance[[/note]] but was never brought up again afterwards.²** In the DVD interview, she notes that she doesn't want to be one of those players who gets bitter towards another player for beating them, and is thusly voting for Russell. Then she found out [[DisposableWoman why Russell voted her out.]]²* WhenSheSmiles²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Colby Donaldson - ''Australia'']]²[[quoteright:250:]] ² [[caption-width-right:250: I'm almost a decade older than I was first time. So to me, this is a test to see if I still got it.]]²* TheAce: Though he is close to being a mild example of a [[BrokenAce broken one.]]²* BadassInDistress²* BeingGoodSucks²* BrokenPedestal[=/=]FanDisillusionment: For ''Survivor'' as a whole. Colby loves Survivor, but he admits that he misses the simpler times when everyone would get to know each other and explore the land, instead of the constant strategy and double-dealings. Compare him in The Australian Outback to Heroes Vs. Villains, he doesn't appear to have his heart fully in it anymore.²* CharacterDevelopment: This season sees the resolution of his feud with Jerri. And he also developed a respect for under-the-radar players, where as in All-Stars he had lectured and berated Shii-Ann for her under-the-radar gameplay. He even voted for Sandra, whose game play revolved around being under-the-radar.²* ChickMagnet: As seen [[ here]]. [[ The]] [[ final]] [[ three]] lampshades it. ²* [[FaceDeathWithDignity Face Elimination with Dignity]]: Has had two farewell elimination speeches because he knew he was on the outside, being part of the wrong alliance and being a hero. The former, however, didn't take because the tribe members chose to vote out their injured party.²* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The melancholic of the ''All-Stars'' returnees.²* FriendlyEnemies: With Jerri.²* HonorBeforeReason: He told Amanda to give the clue back to Danielle, despite knowing the advantages that it would have given their tribe. However, post-game interviews mention that it was production's decision since it technically counts as Danielle's possession.²* HowTheMightyHaveFallen: Became the first ever hero by sheer physical prowess in the very first season, setting a record for immunity challenge wins that have been tied but yet to be surpassed. His third survivor season ends with him being a pathetic loser that only becomes the last hero because they don't consider him a threat.²* {{Hunk}}²* {{Hypocrite}}: Berated Sugar for not having her heart fully in the game after she cried because she felt she blew the immunity challenge. Throughout the rest of the season, Colby and his tribe outright said he had practically given up.²* IAmNotLeftHanded: Admits in post-game interviews that he intentionally sandbagged some challenges so that he would lower his threat level. There's a slight improvement as their numbers start dwindling, but he still isn't able to reach his former glory.²* {{Irony}}: Accepted that he would be the next elimination after Tom's removal and the failure of another challenge. James' injury suggested otherwise. In the end, he would be the final hero.²* JadeColoredGlasses: Claimed in after game interviews that he never enjoyed the game like he used to.²** Subverted in his interview immediately following his elimination. While he states that his pre-merge game was rather unenjoyable, once the merge happened, he began to have fun.
