Best Survivor Winners No. 3: Parvati Shallow (Survivor Micronesia)

Rarely does an early alliance of a core three players get to the end of a season, but damn, did Parvati Shallow ever make it work. She was brought back due to her wily, cunning, enticing personality as a player, and it was necessary to pull off some of the biggest moves in Survivor history.

Parvati crafted the relationships necessary to make it to the end of the Favorites tribe early on, never went to tribal council after the tribe swap, and entered the merge with a game plan.

She was able to whip the girls together into a vote out of Ozzy, creating a huge blindside almost right out the gate. She also managed to vote out crucial jury members as part of her alliance while still earning their good favor.

Brought to the final tribal council by Amanda, she owned her underhanded game while Amanda crumbled.

Parvati created loyal bonds with men and women alike and voted out each player that she wrote the name down of, showing her excellent reads on the game in the present and in the future.

After having a child and a showing in WInners ar War that saw her go pre-merge, it will be interesting if Parvati ever plays the game again.
