Survivor fans: You can vote for Wendell Holland and Survivor to represent reality competitors in the People’s Choice Awards in 2018.

Though we’ve moved onto Survivor: David vs. Goliath after the full cast reveal yesterday, award season says otherwise. The 2018 E! People’s Choice Awards’ first list of nominees has been announced, providing 43 categories across film, tv and pop culture hosted by E! for the first time ever.

Two of those categories includes the world of Survivor. The show itself is nominated for Ghost Island for the Competition Show of 2018 category alongside Nailed It, The Voice, Ellen’s Game of Games, The Amazing Race, Big Brother, Top Chef, MasterChef, RuPaul’s Drag Race, America’s Got Talent, American Idol and The Bachelor. You can vote for that category at this link.

The second category is Competition Contestant of 2018. Wendell Holland is nominated alongside Becca Kufrin of The Bachelorette, Colton Underwood in Bachelor in Paradise, Nikki Bella and Olympian Adam Rippon in Dancing With the Stars, Maddie Poppe from American Idol, Brynn Cartelli from The Voice, Cody Nickson from Big Brother, Eva Igo from World of Dance, Aquaria and Miz Cracker from RuPaul’s Drag Race and Joe Flamm from Top Chef. Voting is available at this link.

You can also use Twitter to retweet the link above (Wendell Holland’s tweet, not the Nikki Bella tweet in the thread) and cast a vote for him to win the category. The Survivor: Ghost Island season itself can receive retweet votes here if you so fancy. On September 24, E! will announce five finalists for each category, reopening the polls for the final voting stage.

Survivor is an outlier for these kinds of awards, seeing how it incentivizes social media buzz and reality programming pushes forward people who create the loudest noises. Furthermore, this is the first cycle in the show’s history where the program was completely shut out of any Emmys nominations.
