Boneham: I would LOVE to play again, anytime, anywhere!

What the fans said about Rupert…

“How is Rupert not already in the Hall of Fame? I love him!” – Rebecca

“The ultimate ‘Survivor’ hero. He even gave up his fourth chance to play for his wife.” – Chelsea

What the Executive Voting Committee said about Rupert…

“Rupert was so popular during Pearl Islands and All-Stars, ‘Survivor’ did a show just to give him $1,000,000.” – Rob Cesternino

“He’s without question the most iconic Survivor in the show’s history, even if his gameplay leaves more than a little bit to be desired. (In his defense, the pocket rock was a cool move.)” – Josh Wigler – Parade

“He was the face of the game for many years, and one of the most popular players ever.” – Tom Santilli – AXS.com

The “Survivor” Hall of Fame is proud to induct Tina Wesson as the second member of the Class of 2016. Tina received the highest number of fan votes.

We had a chance to speak with the newly crowned Hall of Famer to get her thoughts on this honor…

Gordon Holmes: Congratulations on being inducted into the Class of 2016. How does it feel to be honored by the “Survivor” crew, press and fans?
Tina Wesson: I am constantly awed and shocked by any attention I receive. I was part of the early and original casting process that chose ordinary people for the show. I was and am about as ordinary as they come.  The fact that other people who love the show, or take part in the show or like Jeff help produce the show, deem me worthy of being a Hall of Fame member is humbling and again just so surprising. I feel a little bad because I’m somewhat reclusive and not on social media to do any self-promotion or to interact a lot with fans of the show, so the fact that they would remember me and vote for me to receive this honor means so very much. I remain a “Survivor” diehard fan and just love everything about it. I still average about two dreams a week that are “Survivor” related.
Holmes: Whoa, what are those like?
Wesson: Usually always consisting of a challenge of some sort, so “Survivor” is very much a part of me. Thank you to everyone who thought I deserved this award.

Holmes: Nobody has had a more diverse “Survivor” experience than you. You’ve won, you’ve been eliminated first, you’ve been on the jury. What’s left?
Wesson: Host the show! (Laughs) Totally kidding. Hopefully winning the all winners edition that everyone hopes comes to pass!

Holmes: What are your thoughts on “Millennials vs. Gen-X” as we head into the finale?
Wesson: As always “epic” as Mr. Burnett likes to say.  Just when you think the producers have run out of new concepts they surprised us with a doozy like this. Thanks for the great entertainment!

What the fans said about Tina…

“She was one Immunity win away from possibly becoming the second two-time winner in history.” – Matt

“With Tina and Richard winning back-to-back, it proved that different styles can win the game.” – Lilly

“Don’t count All-Stars against her. All former winners were being targeted.” – Randy

What the Executive Voting Committee said about Tina…

“First woman to win “Survivor,” first-boot of the first all-star season, battled her way back from Redemption Island and got voted out yet again to become the final member of the jury in a modern season… of all the castaways across the 30+ seasons, no one has had a fuller “Survivor” experience than Tina.” – Josh Wigler – Parade

“What puts her over the top for me is her second return showing, 25 seasons later she managed to battle her way back from Redemption Island and almost get to the end of “Blood vs. Water.” Strong play in two very different eras of “Survivor” is super impressive in my book.” – Gordon Holmes – XFINITY TV

Be sure to check back Wednesday to meet the final member of the “Survivor” Hall of Fame Class of 2016.

The “Survivor” Hall of Fame is proud to induct Tony Vlachos as the first member of the Class of 2016. Tony was tied for the most Executive Committee votes and had the highest percentage of total votes.

We had a chance to speak with the newly crowned Hall of Famer to get his thoughts on this honor…

Gordon Holmes: Congratulations on being inducted into the Class of 2016. How does it feel to be honored by the “Survivor” crew, press and fans?

Tony Vlachos: This is huge!  I needed this! (laughs)

Vlachos: I’m genuinely honored and sincerely thank all of those who made this happen for me.  There are plenty of “Survivor” greats who have been patiently waiting for years to be inducted in this wonderful Hall of Fame.  For me to have been inducted in such a short period of time after my season, speaks volumes to how great of an honor this is for me, and not only do I recognize that, I whole heartedly appreciate it.

Vlachos: Playing as hard as I did and leaving it all out there on Cagayan Island, has proven itself, to have been worth it many times over.  Thank you all for the recognition.

Holmes: What’ve you been up to since Cagayan?

Vlachos: I been chasing those millions! (Laughs)

Vlachos: It’s been said a number of times by some of the wealthiest people, that your first million dollars is the hardest to earn, the rest of the millions, come easy.  I need to stop believing what I read on the internet, because as of yet, I’m not a believer of that theory. (Laughs)

Vlachos: I’ve been involved in real estate since I was 24 years old, so with the money I won on “Survivor,” it’s been much easier for me to make “BIG MOVES.”  It’s definitely a fresh breath of air to be at a point in life, where I can make my money work for me, rather than me, having to work for it!

Vlachos: Since Cagayan, I purchased and flipped a few investment properties.  Besides putting my “Survivor” winnings to work for me, it’s all about family time.  Life is really good.  I’m truly blessed. Thank you, “Survivor!”

Holmes: What are your thoughts on “Millennials vs. Gen-X” as we head into Wednesday’s finale?

Vlachos: As in most of the “Survivor” seasons, this season started off as stereotypically expected, which quickly resorted to the one common ground shared on “Survivor,” “Survival”.

Vlachos: In this season, I definitely see more than the usual amount of players, risking their torch being snuffed, in exchange for one million dollars!  It’s evident that these players know they will be an instant target after they make a big move by the next person wanting to make a big move to build his/her resume, but yet, they fearlessly follow through, and that’s “Survivor” at its best!  These players are consciously risking it all, in hopes of winning it all.  It’s a great season with a great cast, and I’m sure they’ll be plenty of room in this Hall of Fame for such big-move-making  players!

What the fans said about Tony…

“The guy was just insane. In an all around crazy season, he took the cake. He had a fantastic social game, and deserved to win his season.” – Logan

“Let’s get our skates on and get Team TV the respect he deserves.” – Dave

“Big game, big personality, big addition to the ‘Survivor’ Hall of Fame! (Llama call)” – Amanda

What the Executive Voting Committee said about Tony…

“Tony is a tough dominant player. He’s very aggressive and good at controlling other players. But, Tony has a soft side and he’s fun. I truly believe he is one of the best players to ever win.” – Sandra Diaz-Twine

“Tony was an absolute force of nature who attacked “Survivor” like nobody before him.  He played the entire game like a giant gorilla precariously balanced on a tight rope hovering above a pit of vipers…and actually won.” – Matt Van Wagenen – Co-Executive Producer of ‘Survivor’

“If you don’t think Tony deserves this honor, go back and watch Spencer’s final Tribal Council speech. If a self-proclaimed gamebot like Spencer can have that much esteem for Tony’s game, than so should we.” – Dalton Ross – Entertainment Weekly

Be sure to check back Tuesday to meet the second member of the “Survivor” Hall of Fame Class of 2016.

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.

The “Survivor” Hall of Fame is proud to have Class of 2012 member Rob Cesternino as a part of the Executive Voting Committee.

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.

Rob Cesternino’s 2016 Hall of Fame Ballot

Tony Vlachos – (“Survivor: Cagayan”): My criteria for the “Survivor” Hall of Fame for a player is if you can use a Survivor’s game as an adjective to describe a future player’s strategy… and they won… that’s a Hall of Famer.  Not only did Tony play one of the most aggressive games of all-time, it was also one of the most entertaining.  Tony never stopped hustling for a second on the island and we reaped the rewards as viewers.  His game was Huge and we needed it – #TeamTV For Life

Tyson Apostol – (“Survivor: Tocantins,” “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” and “Survivor: Blood vs. Water”): If you’re looking for a Survivor who has it all, Tyson is both a legendary “Survivor” personality and one of the game’s top winners.  A number of “Survivor” seasons end with an under-the-radar player winning the game but it’s a testament to Tyson’s social and strategic chops that such an outgoing personality dominated “Survivor: Blood vs. Water.”  If you don’t think Tyson is one of the most gifted social “Survivor” players, it’s only because you haven’t met him.

Rupert Boneham – (“Survivor: Pearl Islands,” “Survivor: All Stars,” “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” and “Survivor: Blood vs. Water”): How is it 2016 and Rupert isn’t in the “Survivor” Hall of Fame?  I’m not nominating him for his game-playing resume but he’s the most iconic player that’s not in the Hall and perhaps the most recognizable player to ever appear on the show.  Rupert was so popular during Pearl Islands and All-Stars, “Survivor” did a show just to give him $1,000,000.  And if that’s not enough, the man is the most iconic tweeter of a generation.  #Arrrrrghhhh

Matt Van Wagenen’s 2016 Hall of Fame Ballot

Tony Vlachos – (“Survivor: Cagayan”): Tony was an absolute force of nature who attacked “Survivor” like nobody before him.  He played the entire game like a giant gorilla precariously balanced on a tight rope hovering above a pit of vipers…and actually won.  How he already isn’t already enshrined is beyond me because this beast from New Jersey is a no brainer for the Hall of Fame.

Tyson Apostol – (“Survivor: Tocantins,” “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” and “Survivor: Blood vs. Water”): He’s gone down in flames in glorious fashion – twice.  But Tyson’s win on “Blood vs. Water” was just as magnificent.  He’s a cocky, sarcastic, ruthless competitor who wasn’t afraid to show his softer side on his third try.  Going into BVW most of us on the crew assumed he’d be relying on his physical attributes but after an early injury it was his cunning and charm that got him to the end. Plus he’s got awesome hair and a sweet wardrobe.

Jeremy Collins – (“Survivor: San Juan del Sur” and “Survivor: Second Chance”): I feel like “Second Chance” was perhaps the most competitive season in “Survivor” history.  No cast has wanted it more and no group has competed with such a high level of competition.  We saw glimpses of it in San Juan del Sur but it wasn’t until Jeremy’s second time that we really saw his HOF-worthy gameplay.  He had a balanced combination of charm, wit, and drive and ended up on top of this legendary season.  And doin’ it for Val and the kids?  Just icing on the cake.

Mike Halloway – (“Survivor: Worlds Apart”): He was a bad ass. He did what I have tried to do. He was a challenge dominator and because of that he was able to win the game.

Tai Trang – (“Survivor: Kaoh Rong”): He made it to the end. I think his ability to speak hindered him on the jury. But, I think he’s got a lot of what it means to be a Survivor inside the game and out.

Andrea Boehlke – (“Survivor: Redemption Island” and “Survivor: Caramoan”): I think she’s proven that she’s a strong strategic player. She’s made it far the few times she’s played. She hasn’t won it, but she’s done really well.

Big Tom Buchanan – (“Survivor: Africa” and “Survivor: All-Stars”): The first big over-the-top personality on “Survivor.” Tom was able to distract everyone with his crazy antics, yet play a loyal and calculated game.

Jenna Morasca – (“Survivor: The Amazon” and “Survivor: All-Stars”): This complete fish-out-of-water was able piss off the women and flirt with the men in order to win “The Amazon.” Her touching departure from “All-Stars” to be with her mom will be remembered forever.

It’s real easy, I’m old school and keep it old school…

Lex van den Berghe – (“Survivor: Africa” and “Survivor: All-Stars”): Knowing nothing about the game of “Survivor” before being cast and giving myself a crash course via VHS tapes of every season, Lex was my initial template of how to play the game. His social skills were great and he had a tinge of evil which is the greatest personality trait you can find in any Hall of Famer.

Big Tom Buchanan – (“Survivor: Africa” and “Survivor: All-Stars”): In my opinion, the first over-the-top and larger-than-life personality in the history of “Survivor.” Sure we remember Hatch and Colby but Big Tom was the first real character that seemed bigger than the show to me.

Jenna Lewis – (“Survivor: Borneo” and “Survivor: All-Stars”): Probably the most similar player to myself ever in “Survivor.” The only difference is balls and she might have them too.

Kelley Wentworth – (“Survivor: San Juan del Sur” and “Survivor: Second Chance”): When I watched this woman go for that hidden immunity idol in the middle of the challenge, with all of her tribe-mates surrounding her, I knew she would end up in the Hall of Fame one day. She is smart, strong, strategic and represents for all the badass ladies out there.

Jeremy Collins – (“Survivor: San Juan del Sur” and “Survivor: Second Chance”): This gamer won my heart on his first “Survivor” go round when he cried about his wife Val being sent to Exile Island. The finesse, strength, and composure he displayed during his second chance, and winning the title of sole Survivor plus the million for his family, earns him my nomination.

Terry Dietz – (“Survivor: Panama” and”Survivor: Second Chance”): Who isn’t enamored by this charming, handsome, All-American dad? Terry was a force to be reckoned with on “Survivor: Panama.” When he narrowly missed the win that season, hearts were broken around the world. Then, in the middle of his “Survivor” second chance, he got news of his son having a medical emergency, Terry, without hesitation, chose to leave the game and be with his family.
