To win “Survivor,” you must follow the show’s official instructions: Outwit, Outplay, Outlast. But there is so much more to it than that. “Survivor” is at the same time a social game, a physical game and a strategic one. If you can balance all three effectively, you will likely win the $1 million prize. Many past winners of “Survivor” have been men, but they are not among the ones on this list. What these 10 men have done, however, though falling short, is to forge their own memorable “Survivor” paths using one or more of those skills above.
