The Tribes

     Ikabula 
  • Emerald Power: They're in a green tribe, and have so far have proven they're very competent in challenges.
  • True Companions: The Ikabula tribe mates have all communicated very well in challenges and after they lose an immunity challenge, the first thing they did when they got back to camp was sit next to each doing nothing but lament their loss and not speak to each other for half an hour

Sole Survivor

     Adam Klein 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s33_adam_klein.jpg

Tribe: Vanua (Millennials) —> Takali
Age: 25
From: San Francisco, CA
Occupation: Homeless shelter manager

  • 100% Adoration Rating: Everybody voted for him at Jury, even the ones who weren't sure they should vote for him. The guy who spent all season with a dying mother who left him at the end and was plunged into grief deserved the money hands-down. He carried the entire vote effortlessly. He became even more loved when he announced he was donated $100,000 of his winnings to cancer research in honor of his late mom.
  • Ascended Fanboy: He's a fan of Survivor, and frequents the Survivor subreddit. Taken Up to Eleven as he became what any Survivor fan dreams of — becoming a Sole Survivor, winning in a Curb-Stomp Battle to boot.
  • Anti-Hero: A very light example, but he used more than a few underhanded plays to get to the end.
  • The Atoner: After his underhanded and fumbling play from the merge to episode 10, Adam has been trying to redeem himself and his game. By showing goodwill with Jay by giving him his Reward Steal, showing his loyalty by saving his alliance member with his own Hidden Immunity Idol, and showing willingness to make a big move against fellow alliance member and perceived leader David since Final 7, he was able to show his ability to fix his mistakes and enabled him to win-over the Survivor jury.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Adam's mother passed away two days after his season, and never got to see her son play. However, he was able to make it back in time to tell her he loved her and that he won, so at the very least she passed on with the knowledge her son won the game they both loved so much. She also made him several videos during the season so that he would be able to see her posthumously.
  • Brutal Honesty: Will stated Adam has a tendency to do that to the point where everybody assumes he was telling the truth all the time even when he lies.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Over the entire course of episode 8, he pledged his loyalty to everybody he could, which caused every potential ally to not trust him. Subverted since episode 11, where he has found a solid alliance with Jessica, David, Ken and Hannah.
  • Digging Yourself Deeper: His "apology" to Taylor did nothing but piss him off even further.
  • The Dog Bites Back: He spent most of his time on Vanua at the bottom. Come the swap, he flips against the two Millennials who had been voting against him.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Oh boy, did he ever.
  • Foil: To Jay. Both of them wanted to win the game for their mothers. However, while Jay is playing more of a villainous game, Adam is at least playing more of a heroic game. In addition, while Adam is a Hero with Bad Publicity, Jay happens to be a Villain with Good Publicity.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: He's a good kid, and he's playing for his dying mother, but circumstances and trusting the wrong people have made him become an untrustworthy figure in the eyes of the other players. Subverted since episode 12, as Jay saw Adam as actually a good person after Adam shared his Reward Steal to Jay, and especially during the finale, where all members of the Survivor jury voted for him to win Sole Survivor after deciding he played the best game among the three finalists.
  • Irony: Of the funny kind - his bio says he hates mustaches with a fiery passion, but his closest ally happens to have a mustache. At least until Episode 10, when they are on opposite sides of the game.
  • Jewish and Nerdy: Something he had in common with Hannah, which is another reason they bonded.
  • Momma's Boy: He's playing Survivor for his mother, and wants to make it to the end to hand her the check. Heart-breakingly, his mother passed away from cancer before his season aired. One hour after he got home... she hung on long enough for him to say goodbye... sniff...
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After convincing David to play his idol on Ken, Adam is seen crying as Jessica is eliminated because he made the wrong call. However, the following episode Adam fixed that mistake and used his idol on Hannah which sent Zeke home.
  • No Indoor Voice: Though technically outside, he shouts out his confessionals rather than calmly talk.
  • Only Sane Man: Of the Millennials, him and Mari are the only ones who thinks it's a bad idea to party instead of finishing the shelter. He also steps between Zeke and Hannah when things were getting heated.
  • Redemption Quest: Adam has been trying to redeem himself for his untrustworthy and underhanded play style. First by refusing to play his advantage and steal the loved ones visit, which earned everyone's respect. Then he builds a bond with Jay by giving him his advantage, which fixes their turbulent relationship. Then he wins an immunity necklace, gaining him some physical credence. And finally, he plays his idol for Hannah to show true companionship, which while unneeded because Will flipped, showed he wasn't as much of a flip-flopper as he had been made out to be. All of these helped contribute to him becoming the Sole Survivor.
  • Sole Survivor: The 32nd winner of the game.
  • Tears of Joy: After finding the Hidden Immunity Idol, which turned to Tender Tears when he talks about his mom. And again when he won and had a very emotional moment knowing it was all worth it even though she went to Heaven. And his dad and the whole rest of the family were in tears, too.
  • Tears of Remorse: In episode 10, after unwittingly getting Jessica eliminated.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: In what is likely the most heartwrenching moment of the season, Adam loses the one competition he wanted to win most- the family reward. After watching Adam break down when he gets passed over twice to get to see his brother, desperate for news of his mother, Jeff himself can't stand to watch him suffer, and actually makes an exception this one time and allows the winner, Jay, to pick one extra person than usual to get to see their family, and Jay naturally picks Adam.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Adam, why would you tell Taylor - the guy who's girlfriend you voted out - about your advantage? He narrowly averted this in episode 8, and people don't seem too upset by this revelation in 9. Again repeated during episode 11, where he fell for Sunday's decoy vote, telling David to play the idol on Ken when the target was on Hannah. At the finale, it was again repeated when he told he has an idol to Hannah, which made Hannah's decision to avoid his idol and target Bret to keep the alliance's numbers intact, easier.
  • True Companions: With Ken, David and Hannah - as shown in episode 10 and 11, where he tells David to play the idol for Ken, and then the next council plays it for Hannah. And later, Jay, after the two realize they both have mothers in worsening health and bond over it.
  • Underdogs Never Lose: From the bottom of his original tribe to the Sole Survivor. What a comeback.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: He's a nice guy, and playing for good cause, but his playstyle is extremely underhanded. He grows out of this.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: At the last minute he convinces David to play his idol for Ken instead of Hannah. The votes land on Hannah and cause a tie, which leads to a rock draw, which leads to the elimination of Adam's ally. Had he not done anything, Zeke, the biggest threat in the game, would have been sent home. However, the following episode, Adam fixed that mistake and used his idol on Hannah, which sent Zeke home.
  • Worthy Opponent: Adam became this for several other contestants during the season. Despite his underhanded style early on he worked to improve himself and win back everyone's trust. At the Final Tribal Council he is unanimously voted as the winner by all 10 members of the jury for his strategic plays and goals, even by members he had rivalries with like Taylor and Jay.

Runner-ups

     Hannah Shapiro 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s33_hannah_shapiro.jpg

Tribe: Vanua (Millennials) —> Ikabula
Age: 24
From: West Hollywood, California
Occupation: Barista

  • Adorkable
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Felt like an outcast due to seeing the "beautiful people" get together. Mari quickly assured her this was not the case, and they formed a counter-alliance called "freaks and geeks".
  • Ascended Fangirl: She is a super fan of Survivor and has been watching the show since she was 9.
  • The Atoner: States in episode three that she felt really bad for voting out Mari, and wants to get back with Adam and Zeke. She successfully votes out the instigator of Mari's blindside in episode 8.
  • Birds of a Feather: With David.
  • Cassandra Truth: Predicted she was the one being targeted episode 10, but everyone assumed it was David or Ken. She was right, and that caused Jessica's elimination. Come episode 11, Adam believes her and plays an idol for her.
  • Extraverted Nerd
  • Genki Girl: She's fairly hyperactive and bubbly.
  • Heroic BSoD: She had a panic attack after Michaela is voted out.
    • Invoked on Episode 6 when she gets herself stressed on the reward challenge, and she wasn't even playing in it.
  • Honor Before Reason: She refused to go along with Adam's plan to blindside David because of her feelings with kinship for him, as well as his willingness to go to rocks for her, even though she knows that David is going to be incredibly difficult to defeat at the end.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Views herself as such, since she feels that outside the game she would never have a chance with someone like Ken.
  • In with the In Crowd: Despite complaining to the others about The Beautiful Elite hooking up, Hannah ended up turning on her own alliance of "freaks and geeks" at Michelle's urging, which could read off as the nerdy friend abandoning her friends to join the cool kids. Though she quickly regrets her decision and goes back to her fellow nerds.
  • Jewish and Nerdy: Like Adam.
  • Last of Her Kind: The only Millennial girl left. And then by the grand finale, the only girl left.
  • Likes Older Men: Admits that she has a crush on Ken in episode 10, who's at least nine years her senior.
  • No Social Skills: She has a LOT of trouble recognizing social cues, such as when she refused to leave Zeke and Adam alone when they wanted her to.
  • Only Sane Man: In a twist of fate, it was HER who had to calm Adam down from making a panicked mistake in episode 8.
  • Properly Paranoid: Suspected she was the target twice in a row without any hard evidence to base it on. She was right both times.
  • Revenge: After Michaela's blindside, Hannah pretends she's alright... but is secretly pissed and wants to avenge Michaela. She groups back up with Zeke, Adam, and the Gen-X tribe, and votes out Michelle in retaliation.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She's the only girl from the millennials left in the competition after Michelle's elimination. And the only girl entirely after Sunday's boot.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Pre-merge, Hannah was panicky and went with the cool kids out of fear. After losing Michaela and being on the outs, come post-merge Hannah is pissed and aiming to take down Jay's posse, and manages to successfully oust Michelle.
  • True Companions: With Adam, Ken and David.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: Voted out Mari, despite Mari having taken her under her wing and formed a "freaks and geeks" alliance with her.
    • And again, she voted for Bret even though he was the one comforting her during her panic attack. Subverted in a secret scene, which shows Bret trying to throw Hannah under the bus in an attempt to save himself.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Michaela. Sure, Michaela yelled at Hannah during the challenge rather rudely, but at the end of the day she states it's only due to her competitiveness and that she loves Hannah. And Hannah is devastated by Michaela's elimination.

     Ken McNickle 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s33_ken.jpg

Tribe: Takali (Generation X)
Age: 33
From: Denver, Colorado
Occupation: Model

  • The Ace: He's shaping up to be this - he's smart, kind, good-looking, self-sufficient and athletic. He was the one who directed the shelter-building and fishing to feed his tribe.
  • Action Dad: Won immunity in episode 9, and has consistently been a good competitor.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: A handsome model, and probably the nicest and most empathetic castaway this season.
  • The Casanova: What he claims he used to be, until his daughter came into his life.
  • Cassandra Truth: Ken is always honest, yet almost nobody ever believes him until it's too late.
  • Chick Magnet: In-universe, Hannah's certainly attracted to him. And outside the show, he has many, many fan-girls (and boys).
  • Cool Down Hug: Gave one to Jessica when she broke down and cried.
  • Death Glare: At Jessica, after she asked him if she was supposed to believe him about the fact Lucy wanted her gone.
    Ken: Yes.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Reveals that his name actually got him made fun of - kids used to call him "Ken doll", as the millennials are currently nicknaming him.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: When David started bonding with him, he couldn't stop talking about how good-looking he was. And even Aras on an interview with Rob Has a Podcast said he couldn't stop staring at Ken's body.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Let a stick insect crawl all over his arm, and even went to show it off and help Dave conquer his outdoor fears.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: The result of his final vote. Either take the biggest threat to the end or go against his loyalty and make himself look bad to the jury
  • Good Parents: He cleaned up his act for his four-year-old daughter, and wants to win the money to provide for her.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With David.
  • The Hero: He's currently one of the only main players without a major flaw and has had a consistently positive tone to him.
  • Hidden Depths: Like you wouldn't believe. He completely subverts the expectation of being a one-dimensional Brainless Beauty.
  • Holier Than Thou: He is seen as being very preachy and self-righteous by the other players.
  • Humble Hero: Despite being the most athletic and good-looking man on his tribe, Ken's actually quite shy and sensitive. Cece even tells the millennials that Ken's the most humble person she's ever met.
  • Idiot Ball: Held it briefly during episode 11, see below at Innocently Insensitive.
  • Innocently Insensitive: He wanted to test Will's authenticity in episode 11 because he wasn't certain if he could trust him or not, but ends up causing a storm and making him appear as a backstabber to Will. Luckily, Will still voted with them.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's a model, and he's very good-looking.
  • Nice Guy: He's surprisingly kind, nonjudgmental, and sympathetic toward Dave, recalling his own painful experiences with shyness, bullying, awkwardness, and a speech impediment growing up.
  • Odd Friendship: With David, for the above reasons.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Jess.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: An interesting variation with him and David. Physically, Ken is manlier than David... but personality wise, Ken is actually the sensitive guy who is humble, quiet and seems to relate easier to women, while David is the manly man who is eager to make big moves and wanted into get in with the big guys of the tribe at first.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome
  • True Companions: Admitted this in episode 10 - that he would stay with David and Jess until the end. Became this with Adam and Hannah as well.
  • Undying Loyalty: To David, so much so that regardless of the fact that David's a threat he still wants them to go to the end together. Subverted in the finale, when he votes him out in order to have a better shot at winning.
  • Worthy Opponent: Was the only one to deem the Millennials as this.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: The best way to describe Ken's playing style is that he's an old-school player trying to play in a new-school season. He votes with his heart, aligns with people he sees as genuine, and cares about the survival aspects more than the strategic aspects of the game. Justified, in that Zeke explains in a post-show interview that he's pretty much the only one on this season who's not a super-fan of Survivor.

Jury

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s33_david_wright.jpg

Tribe: Takali (Generation X) —> Vanua

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Feels left out due to his lack of strength and neuroticism.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In episode 4, saving Jessica from a blindside.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Hannah, being geeky, neurotic super-fans of Survivor.
  • Bittersweet Ending: David might have lost the game just one tribal council away, but in the end, he grew as a person and considers that a personal win.
  • Character Development: He's introduced as something of a Lovable Coward, constantly paranoid and afraid of everything. As the game went on, he became more comfortable in his own skin after befriending Ken, Cece, and Jessica. He has since grown into a powerful strategic threat, capable of making big moves, and has relaxed so much and has developed people skills so well that he became friends with his former enemy, Chris.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Has all the makings, what with his fear of the outdoors, multiple neuroses, and uncertainty in his own abilities. Time will tell if he grows out of it.
    • And boy did he! He went from a paranoid wreck on episode 1, to a friendly, easygoing guy who has managed to be a strategic powerhouse AND make good relationships with the other players.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Final Boss: He's Adam's last obstacle before getting to the end.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Chris, his former enemy on the Gen-X tribe.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Little, neurotic, underdog David who would have been second boot transformed into a strategic, social badass who everyone is terrified of going to the end with. Even Ken, the man he had a final 3 deal with, ended up voting him out at final four because he was afraid of how good David was.
  • Guile Hero
  • Hero Antagonist: To Adam.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Ken.
  • Informed Ability: He claims to be an expert at puzzles, but has repeatedly lost on every puzzle challenge.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: With Cece and Ken. Because since they're on the bottom with a chance they'll be booted next, they have nothing to lose.
  • The Load: Oh, goodness... David does not do well at physical challenges. One of them he blundered so badly he caused Zeke to ask, "Is he throwing this?"
  • Magnetic Hero: What he eventually became after the disastrous first episode. He's now practically friends with everyone, and even when he wasn't they made nice comments talking about how funny and charming he was.
  • Non-Action Guy —> Action Survivor: While he's still not very athletic, he did win his first individual immunity in episode 10.
  • Odd Friendship: With Ken.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Jeff calls on him during tribal council.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: An interesting variation with him and Ken. Physically, Ken is manlier than David... but personality wise, Ken is actually the sensitive guy who is humble, quiet and seems to relate easier to women, while David is the manly man who is eager to make big moves and wanted into get in with the big guys of the tribe at first.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Despite a weak first episode, he grew substantially in the second episode; starting a fire for the tribe, finding an idol, and managed to band together with the outsiders.
  • True Companions: With Ken, Hannah, Adam and Jessica.

     Bret LaBelle 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s33_bret_labelle.jpg

Tribe: Takali (Generation X) —> Ikabula
Age: 42
From: Dedham, Mass
Occupation: Police Sergeant

  • The Alcoholic: At the final twelve reward, he told the host to deliver him drinks until he passes out. And after he got eliminated at the immunity within that same episode, he stated that he should of sat out once he saw Zeke drinking some beer. This continued on in episode 10.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Bret is a super fan of Survivor and has watched the show since season 2.
  • Bad Liar: He told everyone he was a funeral director to hide that he is a cop. Everyone saw through it. As it turns out, he actually works at a funeral home.
  • The Beard: Downplayed; Bret tried to hide his homosexuality from view at his workplace to avoid discrimination. He didn't take on a female partner, he only pretended to act straight, though a few whispers about him got around the lockers and he wasn't too thrilled.
  • Big Fun: Got drunk on a reward challenge, and was making jokes and being generally playful.
  • Dumb Muscle: Jay points out that while Bret is strong, he's not particularly bright, as seen when he struggles to understand Jay's ideas on how to build the shelter.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Chris. Minus the heterosexual part.
  • The Lancer: He's Chris' right-hand and most loyal ally.
  • The Leader: Co-leads the Gen-X tribe with Chris.
    • Subverted as of episode 4, both he and Chris are at the bottom.
  • Manly Gay: He is a police sergeant but he comes out on the show.
  • Odd Friendship: With Sunday. See her entry as to why.
  • Sore Loser: He called out his fellow castaways for leaving David in the game instead of wishing them well in the Final Four. He congratulated David for winning and told the rest of the castaways "they lost a million bucks." Even his Ponderosa video shows him being bitter before arriving there. Luckily, for him they took Bret's advice and took out David the following tribal council.
  • Stout Strength: He's noticeable thicker than most of his tribe mates, but just as strong as the muscular Chris.
  • Straight Gay: He is not flamboyant but he did come out on national television
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Believes so when they got rid of Sunday before David.
  • Team Dad: Of Ikabula. Michaela refers to him as "Uncle Bret".
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Displayed in episode 10, when he snapped at Hannah and grew annoyed with her term Cluster Trust, and mocked David with Zeke.

     Justin "Jay" Starrett 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s33_justin_starrett.jpg

Tribe: Vanua (Millennials) —> Ikabula
Age: 27
From: Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Occupation: Real Estate Agent

  • Anti-Villain—>Anti-Hero: All he wants to do is win the money to provide for his family. But he's willing to do anything and cut anyone's throat, even a loyal ally. All with a smug smile, too. He later gets better and becomes much nicer, especially towards Adam when he hears about what's going on in his home life.
  • Backstab Backfire: His betrayal of Michaela divided the Millennials in half, which caused Michelle to get voted out.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He gave it a good try, but he lost all of his allies right out of the gate at the merge, leaving him on the bottom and surviving the vote only on the whims of other players who all have bigger fish to fry.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Taylor.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He quickly proved he was more than just a pretty face in episode 2, when he and Michelle ended up gaining the votes of Michaela, Will and Hannah and voted out Mari.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Watch his reaction to Michelle's blindside. He's clearly shocked she got voted off.
  • Doom Magnet: Every alliance Jay joins gets blindsided and knocked to the bottom. Jay even lampshades it.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: The entire reason for his aggressive playstyle is because he wants to provide for his mother.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even Jay was seen looking upset at Jessica's elimination in episode 10. And he started crying when Adam admitted his mother was dying, but by then he wasn't really "evil."
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Zeke certainly was descriptive in his disdain for Jay, talking about his deep brown eyes and surfer smile in an almost reluctantly attracted way.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Adam as both are playing for their mothers.
  • Foil: To Adam. See Adam's entry.
  • Foreshadowing: His statement of "No couple ever lasts on Survivor!" may of hinted of Figgy's pre-merge exit.
  • Friendly Enemy: With Adam and Hannah.
  • Graceful Loser: Took his elimination very well and wished everyone luck, thanking them for a fun time.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being thoroughly humiliated in the beginning of the merge, Jay became significantly nicer and more helpful around camp. He reconciled with his former enemies Zeke, Hannah, and Adam, and is largely seen as a very likable and friendly guy.
  • Hidden Depths: One of the reasons he's one the show is to buy a house for his mother.
  • Humiliation Conga: Day 36 wasn't kind to him. He lost his lead in the immunity challenge when he forgot to cover his correct combination, allowing David to read his answer and win immunity. Then, he plays an idol he found earlier that day, only to find out it was a fake created by David, and his vote against Ken was negated thanks to the Legacy Advantage, all while getting voted off by everyone.
  • Hypocrite: Agrees with Will that Adam is a rat for turning on the millennials... even though he did the very same thing. He also calls Adam a jerk when Adam tells him he's on the bottom, despite the fact Jay wanted Adam gone and their roles were previously reversed.
  • Jerkass: A lesser degree than Taylor, but the cruel expression he gave Michaela - who's absolutely devastated by his betrayal - after she turns to him cements him as one. Then he tries to implicate Adam for Taylor's theft even though he was the one who helped eat the food.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Though episode 10 showed he was legitimately upset by Jessica's elimination, and 11 showed a softer side of him when he took his nemesis Adam on the loved one's visit.
  • The Leader: Of the Triforce, and briefly of Ikabula.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's strong in challenges, and surprisingly resourceful and cunning.
  • Last of His Kind: He's the last minority in the game.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Eliminating Michaela pushed Hannah to the Gen-X tribe, which gave them the numerical advantage and voted out his close ally Michelle. Him, Taylor and Will are now on the outs.
  • Pet the Dog: Despite past antagonism with Adam, Jay invited him to the loved one's visit in episode 11 because Adam refused to steal the reward. They've seemed to have patched things up, with Jay receiving Adam's advantage as thanks. And then they bonded over their mother's in episode 12.
  • The Reliable One: He's the only member of the Triforce to be consistently working for the group's betterment.
  • Shout-Out: Whether this was intentional or not remains to be seen, but his alliance the "Triforce" is an obvious one to The Legend of Zelda.
  • Smug Smiler: Gave Michaela an absolutely terrifying one as he voted her out.
  • Smug Snake
  • Team Killer: He had a solid ally in Michaela, who was strong and loyal, but he decided she would be a threat post-merge and voted her out in the most shocking blindside of the season.
  • Tempting Fate: Proclaimed himself the "Kingpin"... and then his ally gets voted out. And now he's on the bottom.
  • Tender Tears: Shed some when Adam admitted his mother has stage four cancer, which reminded Jay of his mother and made any antagonist feelings towards Adam disappear.
  • Token Minority: Of the merge. Jay is Mexican-Peruvian.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: In contrast with Adam's Hero with Bad Publicity, Jay is seen as charming, funny, likable, and a great player who people willingly want to save and work with - despite having cruelly betrayed his closest ally and knowingly eaten stolen food.
  • Wham Line: "What if I vote out Michaela?"
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He obviously hasn't caused destruction on a cosmic level, but he is playing the way he is to ensure his mom gets a new house. Basically a Foil to Adam.
  • Worthy Opponent: He had a rivalry with Adam for most of the game, but after Adam shared that his mother was sick with him Jay saw him as this and wanted to take him to the end with him, even calling him his bro. After his elimination he asked why Adam didn't trust him to take him to the end. Jay accepted his answer and still voted for Adam to win.

     Sunday Burquest 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s33_sunday_burquest.jpg

Tribe: Takali (Generation X) —> Ikabula
Age: 45
From: Otsego, Minnesota
Occupation: Youth Pastor

  • All-Loving Heroine: Though she hasn't been in focus too much, the times she has been have shown her to be a very caring and affectionate person. And when others speak of her, they make her out to be a nice, loyal and warm person. And even though she was on the opposite side of David and Hannah, she vocally disapproved of Bret and Zeke's bullying towards them in episode 10.
  • Batman Gambit: Sunday pulled off an amazing and incredibly risky gambit in episode 10; by knowing that Hannah, David and Adam were very overly paranoid players, she simply told Hannah and Adam they (Bret, Will, Jay, Zeke and herself) were voting for Ken. And when Adam ratted it out to David as he played the idol, he gave it to Ken, the wrong target - which enabled the tie and gave people a choice - either switch your vote on Hannah or draw a rock. The latter happened, and got out her rival Jessica. Not bad for an otherwise under-the-radar player.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Sunday is sweet, but if you don't have her back a hundred percent, she isn't afraid to cut you loose. She even went out of her way to attempt to vote out Jessica though nobody else was on board for that.
  • Break the Cutie: An older example, but Sunday's a very sweet and friendly person. And when she realized she might have to break her promise of never voting out Bret, she started tearing up during the confessional.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Look up at Batman Gambit.
  • Do Unto Others Before They Do Unto Us: Her reasoning for going after Jess. She had initially voted her in episode 4, and now Sunday fears Jess will come after her for it and wants to get her out first. She got her wish.
  • Graceful Loser: Didn't show any ill will and wished everybody good luck after her elimination.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold
  • Inspirationally Disadvantaged: Sunday is a cancer survivor.
  • Minnesota Nice: For the most part, she seems to be this.
  • Nice Girl
  • Odd Friendship: Sunday, a religious youth pastor, and Bret, a gay cop. He's her closest ally.
  • Out of Focus Though she did get more screen time in Episode 9
  • The Smurfette Principle: She's the only girl from the Gen-X tribe left in the competition after Jessica's elimination.
  • The Social Expert: As she explains in this secret scene, Sunday's greatest strength is forming bonds with others. This has been shown consistently before despite the lack of spotlight.
    • It becomes the reason why Hannah decided to get rid of her before David. She had so many friends on the jury, it would have had her won in a landslide.
  • Team Mom: On Ikabula, as Michaela fondly calls her "Mama Sunday".
  • Unkempt Beauty: Look at the picture above, then take a look at this. Yes, this is the same person.

  • The Baby of the Bunch: He's the youngest player in the history of Survivor, and the first player to play while still in high school.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: He wanted to be taken seriously as a player in the game. The others took him seriously alright... and eliminated him in episode 12 for being a threat.
  • The Dragon—>The Starscream: He was essentially Jay's second vote, but he turns on Jay by not only voting against him but revealing in the next episode that Jay had an idol. And then he turned on Zeke.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: The lack of respect and desire to make his own move made Will flip and vote out Zeke, tired of being seen as just the kid in the group.
  • Graceful Loser: Didn't have any ill feelings towards his tribe after being voted out, and admits he did make Survivor history by being the youngest who has every played the game.
  • Hypocrite: Calls Adam a rat for trying to vote him out, when he had voted out his loyal ally Michaela last episode. And then come episode 10, he rats out Jay's idol to Zeke. And then voted out Zeke.
  • I Fight for the Strongest Side: He's with whoever has the numbers.
    • It's actually the reason he was voted out. His plan was to keep switching with alliances that would benefit him the most, making him dangerous to everyone.
  • Keet: He's very hyper and excitable.
  • Only Sane Man: Repeatedly played devil's advocate or pointed out why the cool kids schemes weren't great in the long run. Since nobody really listens, he just goes along with their plans anyways.
  • Out of Focus: Until episode 7.
  • Running Gag: With Jeff, in that every time alcohol is mentioned, Jeff will quickly mention soft drinks while Will pouts.
  • Tag Along Kid: How the others view him, deeming Taylor and Jay more of a threat. Deconstructed, as the frustration of being seen as a kid instead of a player forces Will to flip on his allies just to make a move and be seen as a threat.
  • Token Good Teammate: Despite having been formerly aligned with Jay and Taylor, Will isn't exactly a bad or vindictive kid.
  • Vocal Dissonance: His voice is not something you'd expect from an 18-year-old.

     Zeke Smith 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s33_zeke_smith.jpg

Tribe: Vanua (Millennials)
Age: 28
From: Brooklyn, New York
Occupation: Asset Manager

  • Badass Bookworm: Zeke is a smart, cunning fellow who successfully managed to deal a blow to the Cool Kids power with his Nerd Bloc and Gen-X friends when the merge hit.
  • Badass Mustache: He's a strategic badass, and has a pretty cool mustache.
  • Camp Gay: Switches between that and Straight Gay constantly.
  • Did You Think We Can't Feel?: Zeke's Fatal Flaw. Though he played a good game, Zeke seemed unable to see his allies as people with feelings, repeatedly calling them his soldiers, numbers or pawns. He was quick to turn on Chris and David despite having bonded with them. He disregards Will's fears and trust by telling everyone about Jay's idol. And it's the reason Hannah and Adam, his allies from the very beginning, turn on him to join David, Jessica and Ken, who have been emotionally bonding with them. Hannah even calls him condescending, and Adam was even willing to go to rocks just to get him out. And it was the reason why Will turned on him in episode 11.
  • Drunk with Power: Displayed downplayed signs of this a few times whenever he believed he was in power - like dismissing Michaela as an easy vote during episode 2, calling the Gen-X foolish in episode 6, insulting Adam's gameplay and debating whether or not he was worth keeping despite them supposedly being friends in episode 8 and 9 - but it's played absolutely straight in episode 10, where he openly belittles people because he has the numbers and acts like The Chessmaster.
  • Fallen Hero: He was initially a cunning Guile Hero leading the other players against the villainous Triforce on the Millennials... and then he found himself in a position of power and betrayed his allies. This led to his own elimination.
  • Hawaiian-Shirted Tourist: Subverted. He has the look, but not the attitude.
  • Hidden Depths: Would you believe the guy in that picture is a huge fan of Football?
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Chris, of all people. And eventually with David.
  • It Has Been an Honor: After being blindsided by Will and eliminated as a result, he tells the final eight "its been an honor to play with you all" before getting his torch snuffed.
  • It's All About Me: Zeke will re-align with anyone or eagerly cut their throat as long as he gets his way. He'll do whatever it takes to be the one in control.
  • Kick the Dog: Towards David in episode 10, mocking his anxiety and neuroticism. It's especially uncomfortable considering they used to be friends.
  • The Leader: Calls himself this after starting a fire for the Millennials. However, after being blindsided at the Mari vote, he is now on the bottom of the tribe with Adam.
    • He is now the leader of his own "Nerd Voting Bloc," consisting of himself, Hannah, and Adam.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Zeke doesn't really consider himself a Millennial, and even outright refers to his other tribemates as "children" in his bio.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Displayed in episode 10, when he mocked David's anxiety and asked if he was gonna cry.
  • Transgender: Zeke is the first transgender contestant in the main branch of Survivor Explanation  Notably, you will hear no mention of this in his first run of the game, only that he appears to be gay. Due to an unfortunate incident in his next time on the game, he was outed and it turned out Zeke is actually keeping his sexual orientation from before the sex change.
  • Tsundere: Displayed a bit of this towards Jay in episode 8.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Towards Hannah, Adam and David.

     Jessica Lewis

Tribe: Takali (Generation X)
Age: 37
From: Voorheesville, New York
Occupation: Assistant District Attorney

  • Action Mom: She's been consistently good at challenges and nearly won the first individual immunity.
  • Bookends: She was saved by David's idol play, and was eliminated because of David's idol play.
  • Brainy Brunette
  • Broken Tears: When she drew the black rock and left the council.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: Like Paschal and Katie before her, Jessica drew the rock that sent evicted her from the game. It's especially jarring, since she had just survived the vote and was off the radar.
  • Easily Forgiven: By Ken for betraying his trust. To be fair, she did break down and cry and also showed him her legacy advantage to make up for it.
  • Eye Scream: Got sand blown into her eyes on the day everyone evacuated, causing it to get infected and reddened.
  • Morton's Fork: Because of the tie in episode 10, Jessica was presented with two risky choices - go to rocks and potentially be the one eliminated, or betray your allies to avoid going to rocks and losing their trust. She chose the former... and drew the rock.
  • Oh, Crap!: When she saw that her alliance had tried to blindside her.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Ken.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Managed to vote out her rival Chris... but Jessica was immediately eliminated the next tribal council.
  • Sore Loser: She attempted to sell her infamous black rock that sent her home on Craiglist for one million dollars. Though it's probably in good jest.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Narrowly averted, thanks to David's idol play. Jessica was nearly blindsided by the very people she was warned about by Ken because she couldn't believe her alliance would vote her out - despite having blindsided Paul, who was in her alliance.
  • Undying Loyalty: She could have flipped to save herself from pulling rocks... but she didn't, because she didn't want to betray David or Ken.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: She succeeded in dodging the vote and eliminating her biggest nemesis. Two days later she fell victim to random elimination via rock draw.

     Chris Hammons

Tribe: Takali (Generation X) —> Vanua
Age: 38
From: Moore, Oklahoma
Occupation: Trial Lawyer

  • The Big Guy: He is by far the strongest Gen-Xer in the game.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Turns out Bret had a little crush on him, something Chris only realized after the show when Bret came out to him.
  • Fiery Redhead: He has his moments, like in episode 4 after Paul got blindsided, he wanted to dump the rice into the ocean out of anger. And in episode five, where he threatens to strangle David on national TV if he flips on him again.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: He became friends with his enemy on Gen-X, David, which is why both Gen-X camps stayed loyal to each other at the merge.
  • Graceful Loser: Took his elimination well, and wished everyone good luck.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Bret.
  • Hypocrite/Moral Myopia: He's angry that David and Cece "betrayed" him... even though they weren't in his alliance, on the bottom, and he wanted to vote them out previously.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Zeke of all people.
  • The Leader: Co-leads the Gen-X tribe with Bret.
    • Subverted by episode 4, when he is knocked to the bottom of the tribe.
    • And then he regained his position of leadership at the head of the Gen-X alliance.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Him and Bret could've got back into the majority had he not been so gung-ho on voting out Jessica. But in following Lucy's plan, he lost his chance to get back into the majority. At least until the swap comes. Subverted after the merge, where he and Jessica are back on good terms. Double Subverted when he tried to vote her out episode 10, which caused his own elimination.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Being swapped to Vanua caused him to chill out considerably, as shown when he and David wind up becoming unlikely allies. Continued when he reaches the merge, and seemingly puts his past antagonism with Jessica behind them to unite the Gen-Xers.
  • Worthy Opponent: Viewed Jessica as such in his elimination statement.

     Taylor Lee Stocker 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s33_taylor_stocker.jpg

Tribe: Vanua (Millennials) —> Takali
Age: 24
From: Postfalls, Indiana
Occupation: Snowboard Instructor

  • Adult Child: He's extremely immature. His immaturity eventually gets him evicted.
  • All for Nothing: In hindsight, his attempts to avenge Figgy are this as they're no longer dating and don't even like each other.
  • Bad Liar: He attempts to hide his showmance with Figgy from Ken and Jessica. However, once Figgy attempts to tell Ken and Jessica, it came across as an In-Universe Captain Obvious Reveal. He also attempts to implicate Adam in his food theft, but it seems rather obvious that Taylor is just getting desperate.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Initially came across as a friendly, but dopey and fun guy. However, following Figgy's blindside, he has been showing a selfishness and ego that show him to be a grade-A Jerkass.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Jay.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's had a consistently poor edit, with many people seeing him as stupid and air-headed. Even when he's on the jury, they show moments like him getting a bug on his shirt and freaking out.
  • The Dragon: To Jay's Big Bad along with Will.
  • False Friend: To Adam.
  • The Fool: He's extremely cheerful, but not particularly bright. Despite all that, he is a dominant force in challenges, and is a member of the Majority Alliance on his tribe.
  • It's All About Me: He wanted Adam gone even though the Millennials needed to pull their numbers together, and he stole food, with the excuse that he was hungry... even though he was on an island with 13 other people who were hungry.
  • Jerkass: When you steal food on Survivor, you really can't be anything else.
  • Karmic Elimination: He was voted out right after he admitted to eating the entire food he hide from everybody else.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: He openly advertises his attraction and showmance with Figgy, even though power couples are often targeted.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Pet the Dog: Despite the animosity between him and Adam, Taylor voted for Adam to win the game, most likely out of sympathy for his home life.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: An absolute goofball who absolutely revels in his silliness.
  • Reality Ensues: Invoked by Jessica, who tells Taylor that coming clean about the food theft wouldn't give him a pat on the back. Considering they're starving on an island with very little food as it is, Jessica is right.
  • Revenge Before Reason: He swears revenge on Adam for blindsiding Figgy, even though it's tearing apart the millennials and sent an ally home. It eventually got him eliminated.
  • Ship Tease: With Figgy.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Stealing a bit food and getting caught is bad enough. Admitting to stealing THREE JARS of it to a bunch of starving people is social suicide. And he paid for it with his elimination.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Pre-swap, Taylor was just a ditz who seemed harmless and fun, if a bit thoughtless at times. After post-swap when he loses Figgy, come the merge and not only is he tearing apart the millennials by trying to get revenge on Adam, but he's also stealing food from 12 other hungry people with little regard for their feelings and displaying a more malicious side by pretending to be Adam's friend just so it'll hurt him more when he gets blindsided.
  • Tranquil Fury: During Figgy's blindside.
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: Which Figgy comments on, calling him her "beautiful blue-eyed boy".
  • Your Cheating Heart: Taylor has a pregnant girlfriend outside the show...but was more than happy to kiss and cuddle Figgy during the show.

Tribe: Vanua (Millennials)
Age: 28
From: Yakima, Washington
Occupation: Missionary Recruiter

  • Beware the Silly Ones: She's kind of kooky... but managed to turn the majority alliance on each other and vote out a threat.
  • Cassandra Truth: Thought that voting out Adam was a terrible idea, since she wanted to keep the millennials together... but tried to anyway. She really should have listened to herself.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Her believing in dragons makes her one
  • Elimination By Irony: Despite preaching trust and loyalty, Zeke never trusted her and voted her out. And her allies never thought that she could be in trouble, focusing more on themselves and each other.
  • Graceful Loser: Simply accepted her fate and waved everyone goodbye.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: She's in an alliance with Jay, Taylor and Figgy...but they're the core group who refer to themselves as the "Triforce". Meaning she's on the outs. Continued even after Figgy was voted out, and Will took her place. The guys never even thought she could be in danger.
  • Out of Focus: After her debut in episode 2, Michelle has quietly slipped back into the background. She reemerged by episode 7 and 8.
  • Proper Lady: Shown best when she ate properly around the gassy and belching men.
  • The Smart Girl: Of Jay's Alliance, as she instigated Mari's blindside to save Figgy.
  • The Social Expert: Her greatest strength is her ability to form bonds with people.
    • Subverted, when it turns out Zeke never trusted her, Hannah was willing to cut her loose, and she failed to pull in enough people to vote out Adam.

Voted Out

     Michaela Bradshaw

Tribe: Vanua (Millennials) —> Ikabula
Age: 25
From: Fort Worth, Texas
Occupation: Vacation club sales

  • The Ace: She's strategic, she's been consistently strong in every challenge, and while she is lippy she's still in the majority which points to a decent social game. She's so good she even helped ANOTHER TRIBE win after they fell from behind. Bret even lampshades.
    Bret: There's nothing you can't do!
  • Action Girl: Has repeatedly shown she's the most physically and mentally competent woman on her tribe.
  • The Big Girl: Michaela is quite possibly the strongest person on the Millennial's tribe. The fact she managed to take down Lucy (as well as the other Gen-X women) and nearly won the physical reward challenge in episode 4 attested to that.
  • Big "WHAT?!": In response to getting voted out.
  • Breakout Character: Despite being a pre-merge boot, Michaela proved to be popular enough to return for Survivor: Game Changers, as announced at the reunion show.
  • Death Glare: Gives a particularly chilling one to Jay when Jeff snuffs her torch.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Was a huge threat in terms of challenge and strategy and she got eliminated right before the merge.
  • Defeat by Modesty: Averted. Michaela kept going even when she lost her top.
  • Enemy Mine: With Figgy in the Mari vote.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: Her laying out a plan to have her, Hannah, Jay, and Will make it to the final four together lead Jay to believe that she is too dangerous to keep around and he went on to blindslide her from the game. She even went on to state in exit interviews that she has said some things while explaining the final four plan back there that she probably shouldn't have said at the time.
  • Irony: She told the Millennials on Takali that if they couldn't figure out how to work together and hold their majority, they deserved to go home. Guess what happened the next episode?
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Michaela is loud, abrasive, and outspoken to a fault, but she is still loyal, honorable, and playing the game in order to help her family.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: She stated that she helped out Vanua tribe in the sixth immunity challenge in hopes that a Gen-X person would get voted out. Turns out a Millennial got voted out instead. Subverted in the next episode when it was revealed that getting rid of that said millennial was her intention.
  • Sassy Black Woman
  • She Knows Too Much: Will stated that after she found out that Jay has an idol, he needed to get rid of her ASAP.
  • Silent Snarker: When the Gen-X tribe was deeming the Millennials as lazy and weak, it always cut to Michaela's annoyed facial reactions.
  • Sore Loser: Cursing at her ally for betraying her, and punching a tree branch on the way out? Yep.
  • Tears of Joy: Things were rough for Michaela after getting on a new tribe and having to start from scratch, but after she gets a fire started, things started looking up and she cried tears of relief and happiness. Then proceeded to win the next immunity challenge.

     Jessica "Figgy" Figueroa

Tribe: Vanua (Millennials) —> Takali
Age: 23
From: Nashville, Tennessee
Occupation: Bartender

  • Alpha Bitch: She's shaping up to be this. After only aligning with the good-looking tribe members, Figgy proceeds to get into arguments with the other tribe members, calling Michaela a phony and a bitch, gloating after Mari's eviction, and acting like a sore winner when she's congratulated by the opposition. In an interview with Mari, she even tells Rob that when Figgy found out her name was thrown out, she didn't throw out an opposition's name - she threw out Jay's, her ally.
  • Bad Liar: She attempts to hide her showmance with Taylor from Ken and Jessica. However, once she attempts to tell Ken and Jessica, it came across as an In-Universe Captain Obvious Reveal.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing
  • Break the Haughty: She was arrogant up until her blindside. Once the last vote is read, she immediately breaks down crying.
  • Condescending Compassion: During tribal council in episode 6, she pats Adam on the head and tells him she's forgiven him for trying to vote her out. Then she's voted by him.
  • The Cutie: Later becomes The Fake Cutie when it's revealed she's just using her showmance and alliance as revealed by Mari.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Is built up as this by the editing, showcasing her as an early villain.
  • Enemy Mine: With Michaela for the Mari vote.
  • Karmic Elimination: She did not get along with Michaela on the island so when Michaela realizes that Figgy at a tribe where she is at the bottom, Michaela ended up helping out the Vanua in the sixth immunity challenge just so that the others can vote her out. She also toyed with Taylor's affections, so that adds to the payback.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Especially when you find out in post-show interviews that she never loved Taylor and was using him the entire time.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Her real name is Jessica, but there's another Jessica competing in this season. Because she goes by "Figgy", it prevents confusion.
  • Ship Tease: With Taylor, who calls her the hottest girl and claims to have the "love goggles" on.
  • Spicy Latina: She's half-Puerto Rican, and claims to be very feisty and spicy.
  • Smug Snake: Oh, so very much.
  • Stuffed in the Fridge: Her elimination seemingly motivates Taylor to start playing hard and for vengeance.

Tribe: Takali (Generation X) —> Vanua
Age: 39
From: Granada Hills, California
Occupation: Insurance Adjuster

  • Black Best Friend: To Ken and David.
  • The Black Woman Gets Voted Out First: Of the new Vanua tribe.
  • Butt-Monkey: She's gotten votes at every tribal council she's been to. Then she was unanimously voted out at her last one.
  • The Cynic: Not that anyone can blame her, due to the fact she was on the bottom, lost an ally, and was nearly voted out twice. Things seem to be turning around for her in episode three, though.
  • Graceful Loser: Despite being shocked at her blindside, she did wish the rest of her tribe good luck before leaving.
  • The Load: Zigzagged in that she's helpful at some challenges (like the ring toss in episode 2), but terrible at others (the balance beam in episode 3). One will definitely remember Jeff shouting "Cece... is taking FOREVER!"
  • Nice Girl: Cece is very friendly and sweet, getting along with everyone rather well. Will in a secret scene even says he adores Cece when he meets her at the Summit, and Paul in an interview said that the only thing Cece did wrong was align herself with Rachel.
  • Those Two Girls: With Rachel, though it was short-lived.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: Forming this with David and Ken, since they're on the outs.
  • Unluckily Lucky: Despite being at the bottom and repeatedly threatened with elimination every tribal council, Cece is just lucky enough to have survived every pre-swap tribal.

  • Big Fun
  • Gentle Giant: He's a large, intimidating-looking man, but introduces himself as a "teddy-bear" in his meet the castaways video.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Telling the women - who are half of his alliance - that he would stick with the men if it came to that. So those very women voted him out.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Despite being the leader and claiming he contributed much to the camp - like fishing - he failed to uphold those promises.
  • The Leader: Of his alliance, which Ken, Cece and David dubbed "Paul's Posse".
  • Too Dumb to Live: Telling the girls to their faces that if the men did want to stick together, he'd tell them "good luck girls, you're on your own". This got him ousted.

For tropes applying to Mari on Smosh Games, see here.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Mari is a member of Smosh Games, who plays games for a living.
  • Cool Big Sis: To the Tribe as a whole, but especially to Hannah who was feeling insecure.
  • Cool Loser: Since she formed the "freaks and geeks" counter-alliance to the "Cool kids" alliance.
  • Gamer Chick: Her profession.
  • Only Sane Woman: Of the Millennials, her and Adam are the only ones who thinks it's a bad idea to party instead of finishing the shelter.
  • Sore Loser: Downplayed, but as Jeff snuffs her torch, she mutters "Salty" in a slightly angry tone.
  • Team Mom: She even jokingly calls herself the "mama" of her tribe.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Being a zig-zagged trope most Survivor fans would not remember her well being the second person voted out of the game. However, she is seen on Smosh Games and easily the most famous castaway of this season.
