Ten Seasons of Survivor
For 39 days, Survivor contestants sleep on the ground, eat very little, perform challenges - and try not to kill each other. After nine completed seasons of the hit reality show, we've got the goods on which one came out on top - and which ones just couldn't Outwit, Outplay and Outlast.
#9. Survivor 5 - Thailand
Winner: Brian Heidik, a 34-year old used car salesman from Quartz Hill, California.
Finalists: Clay Jordan, Helen Glover and Jan Gentry.
Details: This time around, the two oldest people get to pick their teams and it is the first time that contestants have physical contact in their challenges. All in all, this is a predictable season with a boring cast.
#8. Survivor 9 - Vanuatu
Winner: Chris Daugherty, a 34-year old highway construction worker from South Vienna, Ohio.
Finalists: Scout Cloud Lee, Eliza Orlins and Twila Tanner.
Details: It's men vs. women - oh, and a volcano errupts causing an earthquake!
#7. Survivor 4 - Marquesas
Winner: Vecepia Towery, a 36-year old office mangager from Portland, Oregon.
Finalists: Neleh Dennis, Paschal English and Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien.
Details: In this season, Kathy pees on John Carroll to ease his pain after being stung by a jellyfish. The tie-breaker, the purple rock, is introduced, and although Rob Mariano is eliminated early, he remains the most memorable contestant from Marquesas.
#6. Surivor 3 - Africa
Winner: Ethan Zohn, a 27-year old professional soccer player from Lexington, Massachusetts.
Finalists: Tom Buchanan, Kim Johnson, Lex Van Den Berghe.
Details: This is the first season where tribes swapped, causing some drama. Unfortunately, due to all the potentially dangerous wildlife surrounding them, contestants couldn't leave their small camp to take a breather. Major gross-out factor? Contestants have to drink cow's blood in one challenge - yuck!
#5. Survivor 7 - Pearl Islands Panama
Winner: Sandra Diaz-Twine, a 29-year old office assistant from Ft. Lewis, Washington.
Finalists: John Dalton, Lillian Morris and and Darrah Johnson.
Details: This season has a fun pirate theme and introduces us to Rupert Boneham, a big guy (in a tie-dyed t-shirt) with a big heart.
