We’re getting so close to the end, but first, numbers 30 through 21 have been announced! These rankings were made up from five different panel members, who ranked contestants based on their gameplay, entertainment value, legacy, amongst other things.

Let’s get to the next round of players, which is VERY winners heavy. Eight of the ten players revealed this week have won before.

Let’s dive in!

Top 100 Greatest Survivors Ever (40-31). light. Related Story

30. Jerri Manthey (Australian Outback, All-Stars, Heroes vs Villains)

It’s mentioned in the video how Jerri Manthey really did have her story come full-circle during her three Survivor seasons. She was viewed as a bitch in her original season and that label stuck with her throughout All-Stars where she was booed off the stage at the reunion show.

Fortunately, we got to see Jerri return in Heroes vs Villains where she was a totally different person. She was placed on the Villains tribe, but was viewed more as a hero. Had she made it to the final tribal council, she probably wins that season. Imagine Jerri on Winners at War. That would have been AWESOME!

She’s an iconic player and it was cool to see her transformation span over the course of nine years.

29. Brian Heidik (Thailand)

Brian Heidik doesn’t get a ton of love, mostly because of his antics from outside of the game, but there’s no debating that he played a great game in Thailand. He was one of the first true masterminds of Survivor and while we won’t ever see Brian play again, he proved he could play a cold-blooded game and still win.
