Jamie Forrester is a contestant from Survivor: Grenada- Temptations and Survivor: Lombok - Fan Favourites.

A strong triple-threat in Grenada, Jamie wound up in the good graces of both alliances pre-merge with his likable personality and strong strategic mindset, including finding a Hidden Immunity Idol on Levera. Despite falling into the minority at the merge, Jamie still managed to make it deep into the game with a string of impressive moves including a successful idol play, deflecting votes off him and swinging Brooklyn Ventura to his side briefly. His game came to an end at the Final Five, however, when everyone recognised his threat status and Samantha Langrick was able to manipulate Jamie's closest ally into turning against him to secure the majority vote.

Returning in Lombok, Jamie flew under the radar as he linked up with Grenada ally, Kendra, to form a strong alliance on Gunung. He was pivotal in keeping Kryshelle Borton comfortable enough to stay loyal, but his game came to an abrupt end on day six as two competing alliances, in a quest for majority, were deadlocked and he drew the odd rock, resulting in his elimination.


Grenada - Temptations

Name(Age): Jamie Forrester (24)

Tribe Designation: TBD

Current Residence: Newport, Rhode Island

Occupation: Masseur

Claim to Fame: Changing myself for the better after my first marriage ended in disaster that was purely my fault. I hurt a lot of people and changed a lot of perspectives with what I did, but I bounced back and grew from the experience to become a better person.

Inspiration in Life: Anyone who takes their mistakes and uses them to become a better person. Hobbies: Working out, cooking and walking my dog, Mango.

Pet Peeves: Mac computers. Why anyone would want one is beyond me. Also, white chocolate, and people who say “I wonder” after they ask a question.

If You Could Have Three Things on an Island What Would They Be and Why: 1) Lots of fresh veggies to keep myself healthy! 2) Gym equipment to work out and stay in shape 3) Mango, because who doesn’t love dogs?

SURVIVOR Contestant You are Most Like: Malcolm. I’m a strong, likeable guy but I know how to be strategic.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: For the fun, adventure and physical challenge.

Why You Will “Survive” SURVIVOR: I can give massages. Who wouldn’t want one of those to de-stress? No, in all seriousness, I’ve got a great work ethic and I’ll be a strong presence around camp.

Why You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I’m not only physical, I’m social and strategic too. I get along well with just about anyone and if I’m cornered, watch out because I’ll go down fighting. I think my determination will get me to the end.

Previous Finish: Grenada, 5th Place, 7th Jury Member

Jamie is extremely happy with how he played in Grenada, with one exception- he fell just short of the end. Proud of his triple threat status and the moves he made, he doesn't feel there's a lot he needs to change about his game from the first time around. The biggest flaw, he felt, was that he made his threat status too obvious and didn't have anyone to take the bullets. In Lombok, he will aim to surround his alliance with bigger players to lessen his own target and his first targets will be the troublemakers and manipulators, as manipulation was his own undoing. Given the Temptations twist and how it helped him, Jamie is interested in playing a game without the twist to see if his game stands up and wasn't just aided by advantages. He also hopes to be able to relax and have a little more fun the second time around and show people who called him "boring" that he does actually have a sense of humour.
