24. Chris Daugherty (Vanuatu)
Chris Daugherty doesn’t get the love he deserves. He was down in numbers – six women to one man – and somehow managed to make it to the end and win the game! He was able to get Eliza, Scout, and Twila to team up with him and they all took out the other three women and marched to the final four. Eliza hated Scout and Twila and vice versa, so getting them to work together was an incredible move by Chris.
Chris is often overlooked because Jeff Probst dated Julie Berry from Vanuatu, who Chris blindsided. Because of that, we don’t get to hear much from Chris anymore and he wasn’t even asked to appear on Winners at War.
23. Michele Fitzgerald (Kaoh Rong, Winners at War)
Michele Fitzgerald’s storyline in Winners at War was how she was there to prove that her win in Kaoh Rong wasn’t a fluke. Michele got crapped on a lot for her win in season 32 because many felt that Aubry deserved the million, but Michele played a good social game, won challenges, and made moves when she had to.
When she played on Winners at War, Michele was always on the outs, but she fought hard and made it to the end because she was clutch. She won challenges when she had to and the majority alliance was terrified of her because they couldn’t get rid of her.
Oh, and Michele has played twice and made it to the finals both times, which is really hard to do, and the second time she did it was in an all-winners season! That’s a testament to how good of a player she is and people got to see that in Winners at War.
