David Burris’s 2012 “Survivor” Hall of Fame Ballot
Note: David Burris decided to only vote for two players this round.
Yul Kwon – (“Survivor: Cook Islands”): I re-affirm my re-affirmation; Yul’s ability to maneuver, manipulate, and mesmerize without being nasty makes him the heroic intellectual (and therefore ultimately more savvy!) version of Russell Hantz. Which proves that nice guys do actually win. Plus, if not for Ozzy being on the same season he would have been remembered as a physical threat as well.
Benjamin “Coach” Wade – (“Survivor: Tocantins,” “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” and “Survivor: South Pacific”): I re-iterate… Coach’s third time playing was the charm. With “Survivor: South Pacific,” Coach has proven that in addition to being a Dragon Slayer he is a clever, canny, adaptable player. He went from a “day-one” status of being dead in the water to leading his tribe, defining an alliance’s ethics and strategy, and making it to the final three. And he did it with a genuine desire to be a principled player – as much as one can be in “Survivor”… If not for a jury poisoned by sour grapes he would have been a winner.
