The “Survivor” Hall of Fame is proud to have 2010 inductee Parvati Shallow as a member of the Executive Voting Committee. As a member of this exclusive committee, Parvati (along with Host Jeff Probst, Challenge Producer John Kirhoffer, and other “Survivor” luminaries) has accepted an awesome responsibility. The committee’s votes will make up 50% of the final tally for entry into the prestigious Class of 2013. The other 50% will come from “Survivor” fans like you.
Parvati Shallow’s 2013 Hall of Fame Ballot
Kim Spradlin – (“Survivor: One World”) I love a girl’s girl. Kim Spradlin provided the single greatest performance by any first-time player. It’s tough for anyone to play “Survivor,” make friends, betray them, and still earn their votes in the end. Kim managed to do it all with a smile on her face, including challenge domination. You’ve got to give her Hall of Fame credit for that. And for the critics that would say that she beat a poor selection of players; that was not in her control. She didn’t draft them. The best she could do was beat them all. And she did.
Benjamin “Coach” Wade – (“Survivor: Tocantins,” “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains” and “Survivor: South Pacific”) I just love this guy and his metamorphosis through each of his three seasons competing on “Survivor.” He stole our hearts as the tai chi practicing man of the mountain in Tocantins. He let his vulnerability shine through in “Heroes vs. Villains” as he cried to Tyson in the night, saying, “I just want people to like me.” Although he didn’t win, he seriously amped up his play against Ozzy and the cast of newbies on “South Pacific,” making it all the way to a runner-up finish. He’s the warrior who recognized my excellent play with a vote in the end of “Heroes v Villains,” and for that, he has my vote now.
Eliza Orlins – (“Survivor: Vanuatu” and “Survivor: Micronesia – Fans vs. Favorites) The female version of Rob Cesternino, this woman has elevated “Survivor” analytics and fangirl-ism to an art form. If I have any question about anything that has every happened, or possibly happened or maybe not happened on a season of “Survivor,” Eliza is the one to ask. She made herself one of the most recognizable women of “Survivor” by her jury facial expressions alone. She was my nemesis on “Fans vs. Faves” and now, I am proud to call her my friend.
