Brett Hawkins was a contestant on Tumblr Survivor: Myanmar, Tumblr Survivor: Switzerland & Tumblr Survivor: Kvaløya, earning Player of the Season in his second season after finishing 4th Place.

Tumblr Survivor: Myanmar


At the start of the game, Brett was placed on the Mata Tribe as a designated "Fan" and immediately entered a majority alliance along with number one ally, Keegan S. On Day 10, the tribes were shuffled and Brett was moved to the Togye Tribe along with most of his alliance. At a 4-4 split, tribal lines stayed impenetrable, but original Togye member Amanda Disney used an extra vote advantage and Brett entered the minority. The following round, Keegan informed Brett of an alliance he started with Nehemiah Wilson, Amanda, and Ashley Hudson to eliminate Tommy in the next vote. With tribal council looming, Keegan expressed that he hadn't heard confirmation from Amanda nor Ashley and was worried the vote would fall on him after an outburst from Keegan the last tribal council. Brett went to Nehemiah for answers, but Nehemiah refused to divulge his plan to Brett. Annoyed with Nehemiah's unwillingness to be open with him and defiant to possibly lose his most important ally, Brett took the information about this new secret alliance to Tommy in hopes of saving Keegan, eliminating Nehemiah, and gaining new trust with Tommy and Sam Rutan. Tommy confronted Ashley and Amanda with Brett's information and declared Nehemiah as his informant and Nehemiah was voted out in a 5-2 vote.

The merge occurred on Day 15 and Brett joined the new Toga Tata Tribe. With a new alliance of Keegan, Tommy, and Sam--Keegan and Brett sought to reunite with fellow fan Linus Silversides while Tommy and Sam determined they could work with Jay Berghuis. On Day 19, Brett's alliance worked to eliminate Christian C next, but unbeknownst to him, Jay renewed her bonds with her former allies and Brett was voted out in a 7-4 vote, making him the second jury member.

On Day 51, Brett cast his vote to win for Tommy.

Personal Claim to Fame: I can pay my rent.
Inspiration in Life: My grandparents. I only have one left and she's gone completely blind in the last year, but she still dresses like every day is the last party of her life. Her level of patience with her debilitating senses and her grace in accepting the death of her husband reminds me constantly to check my privilege and to not sweat small inconveniences--some people have real problems.

Reason for being on SURVIVOR: I'm not on Survivor. This isn't Survivor.
Why Will You Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Oh don't worry; I won't be. But I'll slay that jury entrance to tribal council every 3 days if I get lucky enough to make it there.


Brett was placed on the second Second Chance ballot along with his Myanmar castmate, Keegan. Both were voted into the season with Brett receiving the 9th most votes out of the ten qualifying castaways. Brett began the game on the Monte Rosa Tribe and discovered a hidden immunity idol during the first immunity challenge on Day 3. Noticing Brett had found the idol, Tyler Fennessey approached him and they agreed to work together in the game. Monte Rosa went on to win the first three immunity challenges. Brett's ally, Keegan, was voted out during this phase of the game. During the third immunity challenge, Brett found an advantage that allowed him to determine whether he would be exiled the following round during a tribe swap and receive immunity for the round or if he would let his fate be decided by the swap. Brett opted to not use his advantage and he was swapped to the new Matterhorn Tribe, a tribe that would win the following three immunity challenges. During this time, Brett and Tyler increased their alliance to include Ashley Sarah and Ian. A second swap then occurred and Brett remained on the Matterhorn Tribe. At this stage of the game, Brett attended his first tribal council, eliminating Renee for her association with the original Matterhorn Tribe. A double tribal council occurred on Day 21 and Brett maintained relationships with Dom Rou and Nick S. to vote off Benjamin, whom the tribe agreed was the least unified tribe member.

The tribes merged on Day 22, forming Perruque. Brett found a garlic necklace, an item that would negate all idols played in a given round. He then won his first individual immunity. That round, Brett played his garlic necklace to neutralize an idol play by Zack Schneider. Zack did not play his idol, but was sent home with it when he was voted out that round, blowing up Brett's game in a fit of rage against Tyler, whom he felt had betrayed him. The following round, Abel was eliminated, but Brett used the round as an opportunity to ingratiate himself with minority members Jevvon and Luke Blackmore since he felt his ties to Tyler crumbling. With nine players remaining, Brett joined forces with Dom, Luke, Jevvon, and Nick to eliminate Benjamin, who had previously won re-entry into the game, a second time. With eight players remaining, Brett did damage control with Ashley Sarah and sought to eliminate Tyler, but when he got wind that Nick was attempting to use the opportunity of a split vote to blindside him, Brett turned on Nick and mended fences with Tyler to eliminate Nick. The following round, Brett won his second individual immunity and once again turned on Tyler, who also left the game with an idol in his possession. In subsequent rounds, Brett won his third individual immunity and then played his hidden immunity idol at final five, sending the final two original Matterhorn members to jury. At the final four, Brett lost the immunity challenge to Ian and was voted out on Day 39 for being assured the win if he made the Final Tribal Council. Brett voted for Dom to win the game and was awarded Player of the Season at the Reunion.
