The “Survivor” Hall of Fame is proud to have Co-Executive Producer Matt Van Wagenen as a member of the Executive Voting Committee. As a member of this exclusive committee, Matt (along with Host Jeff Probst 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 2016. The other 50% will come from “Survivor” fans like you.
Matt Van Wagenen’s 2016 Hall of Fame Ballot
Tony Vlachos – (“Survivor: Cagayan”): Tony was an absolute force of nature who attacked “Survivor” like nobody before him. He played the entire game like a giant gorilla precariously balanced on a tight rope hovering above a pit of vipers…and actually won. How he already isn’t already enshrined is beyond me because this beast from New Jersey is a no brainer for the Hall of Fame.
Tyson Apostol – (“Survivor: Tocantins,” “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” and “Survivor: Blood vs. Water”): He’s gone down in flames in glorious fashion – twice. But Tyson’s win on “Blood vs. Water” was just as magnificent. He’s a cocky, sarcastic, ruthless competitor who wasn’t afraid to show his softer side on his third try. Going into BVW most of us on the crew assumed he’d be relying on his physical attributes but after an early injury it was his cunning and charm that got him to the end. Plus he’s got awesome hair and a sweet wardrobe.
Jeremy Collins – (“Survivor: San Juan del Sur” and “Survivor: Second Chance”): I feel like “Second Chance” was perhaps the most competitive season in “Survivor” history. No cast has wanted it more and no group has competed with such a high level of competition. We saw glimpses of it in San Juan del Sur but it wasn’t until Jeremy’s second time that we really saw his HOF-worthy gameplay. He had a balanced combination of charm, wit, and drive and ended up on top of this legendary season. And doin’ it for Val and the kids? Just icing on the cake.
