The “Survivor” Hall of Fame is proud to have Co-Executive Producer Jesse Jensen as a member of the Executive Voting Committee. As a member of this exclusive committee, Jesse (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.
Jesse Jensen has been with “Survivor” since 2000 working his way up from Art Department to Art Director to Producer. His creativity allows for some of the most visually stunning Tribal Councils that set the stage for those great dramatic moments that we love so much.
Jesse Jensen’s 2016 Hall of Fame Ballot
Tai Trang- (“Survivor: Kaôh Rōng”): What can I say, he was such a unique player who was a huge fan favorite on “Survivor: Kaôh Rōng” due to his love for the environment, especially his stance on animal rights. He had such a zen outlook on life which really made him adored by the audience and other players. He was also the centre of one of the greatest “Survivor” Finale moments ever when the singer/songwriter Sia surprised everyone and came up on stage to give Tai a hundred thousand dollars to be split between him and his favorite charities.
Tyson Apostol – (“Survivor: Tocantins,” “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” and “Survivor: Blood vs. Water”): I will nominate Tyson again this year, he has always kept us laughing. I’d say for me he has been the most amusing player of all time, so many funny moments. He has such a great energy about him and as a three-time competitor and eventual winner of the show, I can’t see how he can’t make the Hall of Fame.
Stephenie LaGrossa – (“Survivor: Palau,” “Survivor: Guatemala,” and “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains”): OK, I think I am going to keep nominating Stephenie every year until she gets a spot or I get asked not to submit my picks. She has played the game three times and in her first season in Palau she was extremely popular with the fans and was such a strong physical and mental player. She was so good that we brought her straight back the very next season to compete in Guatemala, where she finished in second place. In “Heroes vs. Villains” she played a tough game, but it just didn’t work out for her that time around. In my opinion she is one the most well rounded and popular players we have seen on the show.
