86. Gervase Peterson (Borneo, Blood vs Water)
The first-ever African American male to play Survivor, Gervase Peterson took 13 years between his first and second season. In Borneo, he was a bit of a controversial player for some comments he made to the women and in Blood vs Water, he put a target on Marissa’s (his niece) back by talking trash to the other team.
Ultimately, he made it to the end and finished third, showing he could adapt to the new school style of play.
85. Danielle DiLorenzo (Panama, Heroes vs Villains)
One of the most physical women we’ve seen on Survivor, Danielle DiLorenzo made it to the jury in both of her seasons. She made it all the way to the end in Panama and did so with the train wreck that was the Casaya alliance.
She was able to beat both Aras and Terry in the final immunity challenge and made the decision to take Aras over Terry. She’d likely have lost to either player, but she had a better chance against Aras for sure. Before that, she beat Cirie Fields in the fire making tiebreaker to get to the final three.
Danielle’s return to the game saw her align with Parvati and Russell in Heroes vs Villains where she’s most remembered for fighting with Amanda over the clue for the idol and her meltdown at tribal that ultimately got her voted out. Russell noted in the segment that Danielle deserved more credit than she gets.
