Season 30: Worlds Apart
"Survivor: Worlds Apart" was one of the best seasons the show has ever seen and gave viewers some great players all around, but one stole America's heart: Joe Anglim. Joe was the youngest member of the Nagarote tribe as well as Nagarote's de facto leader. He was especially talented in regards to the challenges, but in the end he was seen as a threat and became the second member of the jury. Joe is also known for the gutsy decision of creating a fake immunity idol and somehow managed to convince Mike Holloway that it was real (though Mike decided to use the fake idol on Will instead of keeping his promise to Joe).
In the end, Joe ended up simultaneously creating one of the season's most memorable moments and became an instant fan favorite. Joe's tenacity and ability to dominate in challenges should make him one of the frontrunners to win "Survivor: Second Chance." Gold Derby odds to win: 20/1
Joe excels in the challenges and had an impressive winning streak that made him one of the best players in "Survivor" history. Joe's ability to connect with other players is equally as impressive but definitely not a surprise.
The 25-year-old has a likability factor and used it throughout the season. More importantly, Joe has a pure will to win and that allowed him to adapt to any situation (especially seen in his decision to create a fake idol).
Joe's strengths are simultaneously his weaknesses. His ability to excel at challenges will probably make him a target as the season goes on, and he will find himself in the same situation that he was in last time. As a result, Joe will have to remain consistent in order to ensure his safety.
His social game will also be put to the test due to the fact that he can make friends quite easily but will be playing the game with some of the show's best social players. His ability to think on the fly will probably come into play at some point as a result of this. Joe's best bet is to fly under the radar for a while while playing the game in the way only he can.
