Elliot "Eddiot" Brantley is a contestant from Survivor: Grenada- Temptations and Survivor: Lombok - Fan Favourites.

In Grenada, Eddiot entered the game not knowing what it was or how to play it, and quickly formed a close friendship with Brooklyn Ventura that lasted for the entire game. He often relied upon his allies to do his strategising, and his lack of strategic awareness almost got him eliminated several times. As the game wore on, however, he played a strong social game and made friends with multiple jurors, earned respect for his unwavering loyalty to his alliance, and even started to understand the game. He made it all the way to the final three, where, due to their friendship, Brooklyn decided to eliminate him instead of taking him to the end, feeling it would be more respectful to him.

Eddiot returned in Lombok with a desire to have even more fun than the first time. He quickly linked up with Samantha, who he joined as a member of the Lombok Bitch Brigade. At the first Tribal Council, everyone wanted Adrian Redford out of the game. However, Jason Bloomfield III campaigned aggressively for him to survive and suggested Eddiot's name instead. Threatened by his tendency to stick to alliance members, and wanting to avoid heat and fly under the radar, those outside the Bitch Brigade turned their votes to Eddiot and he was the first voted out.


Grenada- Temptations

Name (Age): Elliot “Eddiot” Brantley (20)

Tribe Designation: TBD

Current Residence: Long Beach, CA

Occupation: Janitor

Claim to Fame: It’s gotta be being the best freaking janitor in the goddamn business! I mean, sure, I got my foot stuck in the toilet a couple times but believe me when I tell ya’ that nobody can scrub those floors the way I do it. It’s all in the technique, man.

Inspiration in Life: Martin Luther King for sure. Like, his whole “I had a dream” speech really opened up my eyes because before learning about him, I didn’t actually realise other people had dreams. So yeah, he’s definitely changed my life probably the most out of anyone.

Hobbies: Surfing (it’s called Long Beach for a reason), partying, listening to music, and skateboarding.

Pet Peeves: People who look at and talk to me as if I’m some moron, because I’m actually like really smart. Like, do you know how smart you have to be to pass ninth grade? Like pretty freaking smart, right? Obviously I’m no genius like those people that passed tenth but still, I’m not just some dummy you can like walk all over.

3 Words to Describe You: Funny, entertaining, crazy

If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island, What Would They Be and Why: I would take bring an iPod so I can listen to my tunes everywhere I go, some alcohol because everyone needs a good drink every now and then, and a camera because I want my friends and family to see what’s going on.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I haven’t really watched the show or anything but one of my friends told me that I look like some guy called Fobio or something. Actually, all my friends started calling me Eddiot instead of Elliot because they feel it matches my personally better, just like people gave Fobio that nickname because it matches his personality better. I’m not sure why they chose Eddiot but they seem to think it’s the funniest thing ever so I’ve been going by it ever since.

Why You Think You'll "Survive" SURVIVOR: I mean, it doesn’t sound all that hard to me. My friends said that this would just be a month getaway at some resort with a bunch of hot chicks, so as long as I’m more hotter than the other guys, this should be a piece of cake.

Why You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Because I’m young, dumb, and ready to have some fun! Nobody likes some boring ole’ hag who makes everyone feel like crap, so hopefully my great personality will take me to the top, man.


Name (Age): Eddiot Brantley (21)

Current Residence: Long Beach, California

Previous Finish: Grenada, 3rd Place, 9th Jury Member.

Despite not knowing how to play the game, or even what it was, Eddiot had an experience in Grenada he describes as "dope." He says he had the time of his life and is looking to replicate the fun, excitement, and friend-making in Lombok. Eddiot was surprised to get picked for a second season but is hoping for another 39 days of moments he can share and laugh at with his friends. When asked about his strategy, Eddiot says he just wants to have fun for as long as it lasts, but is hoping he plays a little better since he knows what to do now. Having not watched any previous seasons, he has no idea who anyone is apart from the people he played with. However, Eddiot is not intimidated by this and just wants to go with the flow and see what happens.
