John Kirhoffer’s 2015 Hall of Fame Ballot

Hello Friends,

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend with loved ones. It is a wonderful time of year to give thanks for those people and things we love and appreciate…like being asked who among the hundreds of notable characters on our amazing TV show should be nominated for the “Survivor” Hall of Fame.

Here you go…

Rudy Boesch – (“Survivor: Borneo” and “Survivor: All-Stars”): How have 15 years gone by and Rudy is not in the “Survivor” Hall of Fame? He stole the hearts of all of America with his sincere, honest approach to our game with a sense of integrity yet to be rivaled. Rudy should have a bronze statue, of him standing on a mountain-top holding a torch high in the air, at the entrance of our imaginary hall. Rudy is a certified American Hero, being in the “Survivor” Hall of Fame may be a small, insignificant, feather in the cap of his lifetime achievements, but having Rudy in our little television Hall of Fame would be such an honor…FOR US!!!

Benjamin “Coach” Wade – (“Survivor: Tocantins,” “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” and “Survivor: South Pacific”):  Seriously?! I’m petitioning for Coach again this year? JT may have won “Survivor: Tocantins,” but Coach stole the show! I am biased because I dig Coach. I have always seen the genuine man of integrity under the often self-aggrandizing veneer of the “Dragon Slayer.” And we all know that spending too much time out in the elements, unprotected will wear away that veneer and show the true core. In my eyes Coach had a great human development over his three seasons, a huge loving personality, and gave us a never ending supply of great entertainment.

Tyson Apostol – (“Survivor: Tocantins,” “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” and “Survivor: Blood vs. Water”): Tyson is such an iconic “Survivor” character. Few scenes containing Tyson, in his three seasons, were without belly laughs or a sense of awe. His genuine charisma cushioned a sharp edged wit and sarcasm, which could cut deep, and made for beautiful contrast with Coach’s compulsion to impress (and we already know I love Coach Ben Wade).  He grew as a man and as a player each subsequent season until he eventually won it all…and then married his lovely girlfriend whom he competed against!
