Topher Daniels is a contestant from Survivor: Grenada- Temptations.

The social outcast of the game, often by choice, Topher survived through the game because of loyalty to Kendra's Alliance pre-swap and then being saved for his loyalty at the only post-swap Tribal Council his tribe attended. When the merge hit, he became a swing vote and sided with Samantha's alliance due to feeling indebted to her. However, his chosen social isolation frustrated many of his alliance members and rendered him a goat. When Jamie Forrester played a Hidden Immunity Idol, and the votes tied between he and Brooklyn Ventura, his lack of social game within his own alliance and overall goat status saw him eliminated.


Name(Age): Topher Daniels (30)

Tribe Designation: TBD

Current Residence: Mandan, North Dakota

Occupation: IT Technician

Claim to Fame: My amazing marks at school, graduating valedictorian of my high school with a 4.0. GPA being the highlight of my life, reward for the hard work and social sacrifices I had to make.

Inspiration in Life: My aunt, Phoebe. She also got a 4.0. GPA and whenever I felt down about my lack of popularity, she pushed me through and made sure I stuck to my guns and it worked out brilliantly.

Hobbies: Looking after my three cats, Smokey, Robbie and Bandit, working on computers and eating Italian food.

Pet Peeves: This whole pineapple on pizza debate. I like it on pizza and honestly, I don’t care if people do or not. Why is a pizza topping such a big problem? Pretty much any small thing that gets made into a big deal, too. If it doesn’t hurt anyone, why should it matter?

If You Could Have Three Things on an Island What Would They Be and Why: 1) Italian food because I adore it 2) An iron to make sure my clothes always looked nice. 3) A backup pair of glasses just in case my current pair break. I’m blind without them.

SURVIVOR Contestant You are Most Like: A less cringeworthy version of Season 35’s Ryan if that makes sense. I am the nerdy type, I’ve never been popular, but I’m also aware of myself and how things I say will come across.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: Just for the adventure, to meet new people and to improve on my social skills.

Why You Will “Survive” SURVIVOR: Oh, I don’t know about that. I’ve never been camping in my life! I think I’ll survive by staying quiet and not making waves. I can get very comfortable with my surroundings quickly.

Why You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: If I were to win, it would be due to my strong loyalty to allies and friends. I’m nice to everyone I meet, I never hold grudges or ask for favours. The Jury will respect that, I think.
