Survivor Reunion Power Couples
Survivor has given reality television audiences some of its most cringe-inducing showmances ever seen, yet sometimes these ill-advised pairings actually work out and become lasting love stories. Jessica “Figgy” Figueroa and Taylor Stocker, known by his nickname Figtails, made for one of this season’s most compelling couples – bonding over mutual infatuation while disconcerting fellow tribe members through mutual infatuation with one another despite tribe expectations. These were not alone among Survivor pairs to have found romance on its island – here are several more successful pairings from its history!
At first, Hannah Shapiro and Michaela Bradshaw found common cause as members of the Millennials tribe united behind Zeke Smith; however, minority members Hannah Shapiro and Michaela Bradshaw found themselves at odds with one another and engaging in some humorous bickering, such as when Michaela accused Zeke of cheating in a challenge. At some point after flipping to Vanua, their alliance fell apart, leading to both being considered for elimination.
David discovered the Gen X tribe’s hidden immunity idol and showed it to Ken. Together they joined forces with CeCe and campaigned against Paul; ultimately his heat exhaustion resulted in him falling ill – this proved enough for them to secure immunity.
Once Jay’s secret plan to break up Figtails became known, his plans came under scrutiny from both Michaela and Figgy – as well as Mari, who would have cast the deciding vote against Figgy had Tribal Council not been so slow at making decisions – the Millennials took notice. Jay revealed his intention by informing Michaela and Figgy of his intentions before recruiting Mari as his vote against her, who could have possibly decided the outcome instead of Figgy at Tribal Council.
Adam initially aligned himself with Figgy but soon found themselves at odds when she formed an alliance with Michaela and Jay. Adam attempted to keep all three Millennial tribes united during merge Tribal Council but their attempt backfired when they split into three separate tribes and sent Adam home.
Bret’s competitive spirit and emotive confessionals made him one of the most memorable characters on Survivor. His tragic tale about his mother’s battle with cancer helped propel him to win, becoming the first winner to donate all their winnings to Stand Up To Cancer as an advocate. He continues to serve this cause.
