The Sole Survivor

    Sandra Diaz-Twine 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_sandra_diaz_twine.jpg
  • Anti Heroine: The kind of person who would not attempt to be coercive with people unless they rightfully deserved it. And this is before she learned to quietly groom people to her advantage by acting nice and congenial just to lure them into a false sense of security and then manipulate them. Her record of success comes from the fact that she's very furtive and crafty, but learns to hide it well.
  • Badass Boast: Her Wham Line below was the first ever time Fairplay's "Dead Grandma" ploy failed to convince someone he was being truthful (which, of course, he wasn't). Her refusal to believe Jon and stick the woman's alliance together was the ultimate event that turned the game around for the three remaining women against Jon and Burton.
  • Born Winner: Across her two winning seasons, she had only one vote counted against her (plus two negated by an idol in Heroes vs. Villains).
  • Breakout Character: Alongside Fairplay and Rupert, remains one of the most recognizable Survivor players to this day. Additionally unlike those two, her reputation has improved, if anything.
  • The Cassandra: Talk about Meaningful Name.
  • Establishing Character Moment: "I was like ohhhh shit."
  • Flawless Victory: She had a No-Damage Run and won in a landslide vote of 6-1.
  • Griefer: Almost immediately after Rupert's blindside, she dumps all the fish that he'd caught for the tribe as revenge. Then, in the penultimate episode she decided to start hiding the camp equipment, believing that she was the next to go - it was only because of Lili deciding to betray Jon and Burton that she cut short that plan.
  • Guile Heroine
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Rupert.
  • I'm Not Here to Make Friends: She doesn't outright say it, but her style of play both averts this and plays it straight at the same time. As she says, she would vote out anyone so long as it wasn't her. She was perfectly okay making friends, but if it advanced her in the game, she wouldn't think twice before stabbing them in the back and would have no regrets about doing so. Nowhere is this clearer than when she dumps all the tribe's fish and lets her friend and ally Christa be blamed.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She could be abrasive and rude, but she did care about the people she befriended.
  • The Load: In some challenges, particularly anything that involves swimming, as she admitted at the reunion.
  • Lady Swearsalot: While she's nearly as bad as Fairplay in this regard, half their dialogue consists of sound effects in the early episodes. It's still hard to believe she's a mother of two with dialogue like that:
    "You know what, I CAN GET LOUD TOO, WHAT THE F%#K!"
    "Where the f$%k is the water jug?"
    "Where's that snake mother f#$ker Jon?! I tell you what no one can trust that f$%king bitch right there, I never trusted you from day one and you can't be trusted, ladies he cannot be trust he will backstab you in a f%$king heartbeat like he did in everybody here!"
  • Living Lie Detector: The only one to see through Fairplay's dead grandma lie.
  • The Napoleon
  • No-Damage Run
  • Power Trio: Of the Beauty, Brains, and Brawn variety with Rupert and Christa - she was Brains.
  • Plucky Girl
  • Sole Survivor: Her first.
  • Spicy Latina
  • Talking Your Way Out
  • True Neutral: Invoked - she frequently said that she'd vote for anyone, as long as it wasn't her.
    • Averted with Johnny Fairplay, Burton, and eventually Russell, all of whom she attempted to have eliminated for personal reasons.
    • She was also exceptionally good friends with Rupert. The DVD commentary for Pearl Islands reveals that she and Christa planned to burn down the shelter and throw snakes at Johnny Fairplay once he got Rupert Eliminated. (Apparently the Mattress wouldn't catch fire)
  • Wham Line: "And in my head, and mumbling under my breath, I was like 'I swear on my two kids that I'm gonna screw you [Jon] and Burton.'"

Runner-Up

    Lillian Morris 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_lillian_morris.jpg
  • Back From Elimination
  • Being Good Sucks: She was constantly lambasted at the Final Tribal Council for her choice of wearing her scout master uniform. Of course, she didn't know she would be playing the game with it.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She may be a Perpetual Frowner and easily upset, but during the final immunity, she grows giant cannonballs of steel. She even taunts Jon as he tries to cut a deal with her.
  • Butt-Monkey
  • Cool Old Lady: The Oldest contestant this season.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: See Shut Up, Hannibal!.
    • Her uniform and her personality made most people write her off as being in over her head but after her return to the game she voted out the entire jury (and Savage), backstabbing several of them, and her social isolation meant she didn't have strong ties to any alliance and gave her considerable power in the game.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Outright defied. It seemed like this would be the case when Savage decided he only wanted alpha males on his tribe, but she came back as an outcast by winning a challenge with her team, and clawed her way to the final 2, kicking Fairplay's ass along the way.
  • Hidden Depths: In episode 1, it's clear she's a better strategist than you'd assume at first when she gets Nicole out.
  • Honor Before Reason: Taking Sandra to the finals. She probably would have won if she'd taken Fairplay to the finals, as she had Tijuana's vote against Sandra and knew Sandra, Rupert and Christa all hated Jon. (It is debatable... the jury wasn't exactly fond of her either)
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Skinny Ryan.
  • Irony: She's voted out for being weak at challenges. At the end of the season, she defeats the notorious Johnny Fairplay to kick him out.
  • Never Mess with Granny
  • Nice Hat
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Poor Communication Kills: Doesn't exactly do the strongest job at the final tribal council.
  • Prone to Tears: VERY much so. Always looks like she is on the brink of crying, and does so very often
  • Plucky Girl
  • She's Back
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: To Jon at the final immunity challenge:
    Jon: "Lill, you wanna make a deal right now?"
    Lillian: "No sir!"
    Jon: "You're crazy."
    Lillian: "My daughter wants to be a doctor."
    Jon: "Do you understand how the-"
    Lillian: "Jon, don't talk to me."
    Lillian: "Shut. Up."
  • Team Mom: Evident at the very end of the season - the reason she chose Sandra as who to take to the finals was because she knew she would lose anyway, and she didn't want to be responsible if Jon won the million dollars and indulged himself to death. She may have lost Survivor, but she may have saved Jon's life.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Morgan voted her out. She returned and proceeded to be the deciding factor in getting rid of all of them but Ryno.
    • Ultimately does this to Fairplay. He spends a good chunk of the season being a jerk to her, and in the final immunity challenge, she pretty much destroys him in the most humiliating way and later votes him off at tribal council.
  • The Eeyore: Take a picture of her face at any point during the series - nine times out of ten, she'll be frowning and unhappy.

Jury Members

    Jon "Jonny Fairplay" Dalton 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_jon_dalton.jpg
  • And There Was Much Rejoicing: The two remaining women talk about how much they hated him after he's voted off.
  • Big Bad
  • Brains Evil, Brawn Good: Contrast him with the season's main hero, Rupert.
  • Breakout Character: Still remembered as the most infamous villain to ever play until Russell Hantz came along.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He deliberately plays up his alter ego "Jonny Fairplay" to the audience as well as to the other survivors. A year later after All Stars ended, he looked very pleased when he won the "Best Villain" award during "America's Tribal Council."
  • The Chessmaster: Jonny Fairplay remains to this day one of the most dangerous players to have ever played Survivor. His ability to manipulate people to his advantage was a tactic he copied and perfected from Rob Cesternino the previous season, who was equally vicious.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder
  • Consummate Liar
  • Crying Wolf: Very memorably.
  • Establishing Character Moment: "I go by the moniker of Jonny Fairplay. I do not play fair."
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Infamously invoked this trope, complete with Crocodile Tears. Worked on everyone but Sandra, and it didn't make him any friends when this secret was outed at the live reunion.
  • Evil Genius
  • Evil Gloating: All the time.
  • Faux Affably Evil
  • Hero Killer: Screwed over Andrew, Rupert and Christa.
  • Jerkass: On the show, but is nice in real life.
  • Karma Houdini: It was amazing how he managed to last so long. ** Karma Houdini Warranty: This is averted once he gets beaten by Lil of all people in the final immunity challenge.
  • Large Ham: During the Reunion, he even taunts the audience into booing him more.
  • Lazy Bum: He would apparently wake up at noon, then take another nap somewhere else.
  • Lean and Mean: Not that mean, but snobbish and arrogant.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • The Napoleon
  • Non-Action Guy: He's not very good at challenges
  • Nonindicative Name: He is not a Fair-Play Villain.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Jonny Fairplay.
  • Porn Stache: After he got voted out, he shaved his beard off (off camera), but left on a this kind of mustache just in time to interrogate Lill and Sandra at the Final Tribal Council.
  • Precision F-Strike: He caps off his feud with Shawn with a short, simple, "F@#k you" when he casts his vote during Shawn's boot episode.
  • Sir Swearsalot: Particularly in the earlier episodes. There were entire scenes where half of his dialogue was bleeped out.
  • Shout-Out: Made constant references to Professional Wrestling characters, especially during his Tribal Council vote testimonials, such as one to Ric Flair in Rupert's blindside:
    "If you wanna be the man, you gotta beat the man. Woo."
  • The Starscream: To Rupert/Sandra/Christa twice apiece.
  • Smug Smiler
  • Smug Snake
  • Straw Misogynist: Once it came down to the final four and he was the only guy left, he laid it on thick. Best illustrated by his confessional regarding the upcoming immunity challenge:
    "If it's a getting pregnant contest, they can probably win, but other than that, no."
  • Talking His Way Out: He managed to avoid elimination on at least three different occasions by either Hannibal Lecture or convincing his enemies (usually Sandra) that someone else was the bigger threat.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With Burton for a while.
  • Troll: To Jeff Probst. There's a very famous animosity between him and the host of Survivor, but according to an interview with the Dom and Colin podcast, it may have been because of how he introduced himself to Jeff.
    He rubbed lotion on his hand prior to a qualifying interview, shook Probst's hand, and when Probst asked why Jonny's own hand was so sticky, well... you get the idea of what Fairplay told him.
  • The Trickster: Jonny Fairplay is the paradigm of the Survivor Trickster archetype and its very first occurrence. Later Edgardo Rivera, Tyson Apostol, Eric Cardona, Pete Yurkowski, Tyler Fredrickson and Nick Maiorano would follow. Fairplay was very deceptive and had a complete disregard for normal propriety. His biggest trick was when he had his friend who visited him at the Loved Ones' visit tell him publicly in front of the other castaways that his grandmother had passed away. Fairplay later revealed in confessional that his grandmother was at home watching Jerry Springer probably and that he premeditated this lie ahead of time. It is still to date the most infamous lie in Survivor history.
  • Villain Protagonist
  • Villainous Breakdown: His desperate attempts to cut a deal with Lili at the last immunity challenge
    • He had an earlier one behind the scenes after Burton got voted out. Having lost his only friend and clearly being next on the chopping block he just wanted to party with Burton at Ponderosa and told the producers he was done. Knowing that alcohol brought out the best (worst) in him they decided to serve champagne with the breakfast the final four got. Cue Fairplay turning the women against each other in five minutes flat.
  • Villainous Friendship: with Burton.
  • V-Sign

    Darrah Johnson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_darrah_johnson.jpg
  • Action Girl: Won three Immunity Challenges in a row, finished fourth because nobody wanted to compete against her in the endurance challenge.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • The Chick: To Morgan.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: On her boot episode, the remaining four castaways had to compete against the Jury for immunity. As a result of the jury winning, she got the boot.
  • Disqualification-Induced Victory: When she won her first immunity. Burton had his immunity stripped after Jeff discovered a misspelled word. Played with, since she still had to beat everyone else.
  • Last of Her Kind: The last member of Savage's alliance standing by a long shot, and the only Morgan to avoid being voted out for a time. Interestingly, by the end, she fulfills Morgan's general tribal philosophy by being a Challenge beast, not unlike the ones Savage wanted to keep around.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Darrah works as a mortician, and her audition tape involved invoking this trope for laughs.
  • Out of Focus: While she did have a few lines before she started winning immunities, she can be compared to Brett of Samoa by how suddenly she's in the limelight.
  • Plucky Girl: In the face of everyone in her tribe being gone long ago after the merge.
  • The Stoic
  • The Unintelligible: Depending on the viewer - however, one has to admit though that her Mississippi accent was pretty thick.
  • Those Two Girls: With Tijuana.

    Burton Roberts 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_burton_roberts.jpg
  • Back from the Dead
  • Came Back Strong: Both from a gameplay and character standpoint, he becomes much more interesting and dominating upon coming back to take revenge on his old tribe.
  • The Dog Bites Back: By being the main factor for why the Outcast Tribe beat both Drake and Morgan, he was the reason why Shawn was voted out immediately after. He then proceeded to be a key factor in both Rupert and Christa being voted out.
  • The Dragon: To Jon.
  • Exact Words: He promises to Lill that he will "never lie to her". That doesn't include any promise that he's taking her to the Final 2.
  • Genius Bruiser: He has every bit of the cunning Jonny Fairplay has, but is much much more athletic and better at challenges.
  • He's Back
  • Hypocrite: With just five players left, the three women secretly unite and blindside Burton, who says in his exit interview that he hopes Lill can live with herself, because they had an alliance and she broke it. This after he voted to eliminate Lill in that very same tribal council.
  • Jerk Jock: To Rupert.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Nothing Can Stop Us Now!: Once it was just down to five, he became extremely cocky about how his and Jon's plans were about to succeed.
  • The Starscream: To Rupert/Sandra/Christa.
  • The Strategist
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With Johnny Fairplay
  • Villainous Friendship: with Fairplay.

    Christa Hastie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_christa_hastie.jpg
  • Action Girl: Lasted the longest out of her entire tribe in the 'hold a bar with weighted sandbags on it longer than anyone else' immunity challenge, and always came in extremely close to winning individual immunity (only loosing to Rupert or fellow Action Girl Darrah).
  • Butt-Monkey
  • The Chew Toy
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: While not 'cacophonic', the most memorable part of Christa is that she sounds like she has a perpetual cold.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Inverted as She apparently hated a lot around camp: the reason Drake threw immunity challenge? To get her out. Ryno's throwaway vote in his boot episode? For Christa. Who was blamed for sabotaging the tribe after Rupert was blindsided? Christa. You just had to feel sorry for the poor girl when she had most of the camp apart from her Power Trio plotting against her.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Sandra.
  • Hidden Depths: She was apparently such good friends with Sandra and Rupert, that when Rupert was blindsided, she plotted with Sandra to burn the shelter down.
  • I Coulda Been a Contender!: On the DVD commentary, she wonders why Sandra and Rupert were chosen to play in multiple seasons and not her.
  • Misblamed: After Rupert's blindside, Sandra dumped the fish he had caught while nobody was looking. Because Christa had not been seen for a couple of seconds, and because most of the tribe didn't believe her alibi, she was blamed for the incident.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Nice Girl: Seems like the friendliest person in the whole cast.
  • Power Trio: Of the Beauty, Brains, and Brawn variety with Rupert and Sandra. She was Beauty.
  • Statuesque Stunner
  • True Blue Femininity: She was wearing a blue flowered dress when the game started. Justified as the castaway started the game with the clothes on their backs.

    Tijuana Bradley 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_tijuana_bradley.jpg

    Rupert Boneham 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rupert.jpg
  • Badass Beard
  • Berserk Button: Jon and Trish voting for him sets off an absolute shitstorm that Jon takes the brunt of.
  • The Big Guy
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Brains Evil, Brawn Good: Compared to Johnny Fairplay.
  • Breakout Character: Rupert is the textbook definition. He was the most popular player this season who, despite being voted out in episode 10 was in most of the advertisements for the season. On, the DVD cover, he even appears in the top-center position occupied by the winner on every other season set. He also was in two All Star editions, making it farther both times than in this season.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Very out-of-the-box and somewhat eccentric, and especially in this season tends to have somewhat odd priorities. However, he's an immense challenge threat, an excellent fisherman who consistently fed his entire tribe, and managed (more than once) to make it much farther in the game than his guileless personality would suggest.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: a fairly mild example, but he had his moments.
  • Decoy Protagonist: The first half of the season sets up a confrontation between him and Jonny Fairplay, the villain of the season. That ends when Fairplay votes Rupert out soon after the merge, setting the stage for Sandra and Lil.
  • Determinator: When Rupert sets his mind to something he will rarely give up, which is how he is able to beat Osten in several physical challenges despite admitting that Osten is stronger than him.
  • Emotional Bruiser: The toughest guy in the season and also the most sensitive.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His famous "Pirates plunder, pirates steal" confessional in the first episode, in addition to his pirating of Morgan's shoes to help his tribe get more supplies in the village.
  • Face of a Thug
  • Friend to All Living Things: Unless they're fish or Jonny Fairplay.
  • Genre Blindness: His strategy is based around providing food, working hard at camp and winning challenges and he never really considers the dynamics of the individual game, focusing entirely on ensuring Drake's success as a group even post-merge. Fairplay suggests in the commentary that Rupert seems to think he's playing an extreme lifestyle game rather than a social strategy game, which is why he takes Fairplay's vote against him extremely personally.
  • Gentle Giant: A big part of his persona, as he's very strong and looks intimidating but is actually extremely soft-hearted. At one point in the game he adopts a tiny injured snake, names it and takes care it, and is very upset when it dies.
  • The Heart: Rupert is disgusted when Jon suggests looting Morgan's water pot to deprive them of clean drinking water and when Morgan "wins" him in a challenge he does his best to get their camp in shape, teach them how to fish and win a reward challenge for them.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Sandra.
  • Iconic Outfit: His tie-dye wifebeater.
  • Large Ham: This guy can roar.
  • Power Trio: Of the Beauty, Brains, and Brawn variety, with Sandra and Christa. He was Brawn.
  • Red Baron: The Pirate.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to the opposing tribe's leader Andrew.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps
  • Sore Loser: "So much for my dreams."
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: When you have someone as unique and who engages in as much antics as Rupert does, there's no doubt he'll devour most of the screen time.
  • Team Chef
  • Team Mom: He keeps the Drake tribe going by nurturing and providing for them.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: For most of the season, he wore a flowered skirt (made from part of Christa's dress), since the jeans he jumped ship in weren't exactly game-friendly. When Drake won a sewing kit in one of the reward challenges, he made himself another one.

    Ryan "Ryno" Opray 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_ryan_opray.jpg

Voted Out

    Andrew Savage 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_andrew_savage.jpg
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: Savage anyone?
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Badass in Charge
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Justified as he was only taking the clothes on his back.
  • Berserk Button: When Jon, while 'looting' the Morgan camp, tells Andrew that Drake actually threw the first challenge Morgan won, Andrew not only doesn't believe him, but reviles the idea so much that he propels Morgan to victory in the next immunity challenge.
  • Decoy Protagonist
  • Determinator
  • Diabolus ex Machina: If it weren't for Burton and Lil coming back, he almost undoubtedly would have made the jury, possibly even the finals. But, they came back, aligned with the former Drake tribe at the merge, and sent him packing. Thank Goodness he was chosen to compete on Survivor: Cambodia
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: The reason why he was brought back for Cambodia.
  • The Hero: This the guy everyone on Morgan looks up to.
  • Heroic Resolve: He tacks on more weight during one immunity challenge than anyone else, outlasting even Rupert.
  • Heroic RRoD: Falls to the ground after winning the third immunity challenge for Morgan.
  • Last-Name Basis: "Savage"
  • The Leader: Of the Morgan Tribe.
  • Manly Tears: Morgan had lost pretty much every challenge bar three immunity challenges and a reward with Rupert. Fairplay told Morgan that they threw a challenge, implying that Morgan was weak and only won because they were intentionally trying to lose. When Savage refused to give up and won the challenge for his team, he started crying. Jeff even lampshaded it.
  • Perma-Stubble
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He's much calmer and more collected than Drake's leader, Rupert.
  • Team Dad
  • "World of Cardboard" Speech: His confessional in Episode 3 about why his tribe was stronger than Drake came across this way.

    Osten Taylor note  
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_osten_taylor.jpg
  • Animals Hate Him: Inverted. He hates animals, especially pelicans.
  • Bald, Black Leader Guy: Subverted. He initially strongarms himself into the position by being the loudest voice, but that wore off as the days went by, letting Savage take the position instead.
  • The Big Guy: For Morgan. Whenever there's some sort of strength challenge, the weight (metaphorically and literally) falls on his shoulders.
  • Butt-Monkey: He sold off all his clothes, except for his boxers, in the first day. This is most likely the reason why the island took its toll on him.
  • Irony: The toughest looking guy in his season ends up being the biggest wimp and the show's first official quitter.
  • Miles Gloriosus
  • Non-Gameplay Elimination: Osten was the first person to quit Survivor.
  • Paper Tiger
  • Suicide by Cop: Attempted. He wanted everyone to vote him off on two separate occasions. The night he quit was also the night he was supposed to be voted off.

    Shawn Cohen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_shawn_cohen.jpg
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Certainly for Jon.
  • With Friends Like These...: With Jon. Before the Outcast twist came along, Shawn and Jon were planning to team up during the merge in a manner pretty much identical to how Burton and Jon ended up working together after the merge. However, it probably wouldn't have been as successful as the Burton/Jon duumvirate was since the two hated each other fiercely.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Him and Burton during the pre-merge.
  • Jerk Jock: He and Burton act like stereotypical jocks making fun of the weird kids, which is something that Rupert especially didn;t like. Afterwards, Jon was the recipient of his ire.
  • Lazy Bum: He got called out on it many times by his tribe. He had many arguments with Jon over his lack of work ethic.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: According to his CBS bio, his friends and family like to call him "World's Greatest Salesman" or something similar. He seemed to believe this, despite being even more disliked on his tribe than Jonny Fairplay.
  • Smug Snake
  • The Quisling: First by betraying Burton, then by betraying Trish. Not that he had much of a choice with Burton, however.

    Trish Dunn 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_trish_dunn.jpg

  • I Coulda Been a Contender!: In possibly the best position possible strategic-wise - everyone liked her, she had a good alliance with Fairplay and Shawn, and was extremely close to eliminating a potential post-merge threat (Rupert) - if Sandra hadn't ratted her out, and Shawn hadn't flipped back to the triumvirate, Trish could have taken control of the game.
  • Incompatible Orientation / Oblivious to Love: In the first episode, a store woman develops a crush on Trish, she does not pick up on it, but Sandra does.
  • The Starscream: Made a failed attempt just before the merge to overthrow the Rupert/Christa/Sandra triumvirate on Drake by recruiting Drake's most hated members, Jon and Shawn, into voting out Rupert. Shawn initially agrees with the plan, but later changes his mind, which leads to a 4-2 vote out against Trish.

    Michelle Tesauro 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_michelle_tesauro.jpg
  • The Chick: On Drake, there was a three member alliance(four if Jonny Fairplay had joined up with them), consisting of Burton, Shawn and Michelle.
  • The Cutie
  • Hoist By Her Own Petard: The plan during the food-eating competition mentioned below was for Michelle to fake being disgusted by the food and get it down as slow as possible, so she would get chosen for the tiebreaker by Morgan, after which she would scoff it down faster than anyone. Unfortunately for her, she got it down way too fast, Morgan chose Sandra, who ACTUALLY had trouble, that lost them the challenge, and Michelle was left to take the blame. Bye-bye, Michelle.
  • The Ingenue: She was portrayed as sweet and innocent and therefore was probably cast for the Ingénue archetypical role for which Colleen Haskell is the prototype.
  • Meganekko
  • Revenge: While this applies to all the Outcasts, she was the one who vocalized it the most.
  • Tomboy: Admits to loving to eat and drink gross things, and proves it during the food eating competition in Episode 5.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: One moment has her throwing up whilst Rupert attempts to strategize with her.

    "Skinny" Ryan Shoulders 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_ryan_shoulders.jpg

    Nicole Delma 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s7_nicole_delma.jpg
  • The Complainer Is Always Wrong: Was annoyed with Tijuana and tried to organized an alliance to boot her. This caused Nicole to get the boot instead.
  • Graceful Loser: In her final words.
  • Honor Before Reason: Used against her - her tribe kicked her off for trying to organize the blindside of Morgan's obviously weaker members.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Lampshaded by Jeff during the premier, saying she might be popular because she wasn't wearing a bra.
  • Too Clever by Half: She attempted to eliminate a threat in the form of Tijuana instead of one of the easy votes like Ryan S. or Lillian. The tribe booted her to restore order.
