While “Survivor: Game Changers” castaway Ozzy Lusth is in the record books for playing the game for a whopping 120 days, Cirie Fields quietly made a mark of her own last week. She is now the sixth player in “Survivor” history to cross the 100-day mark. And if her current luck continues — she’s been to zero of this season’s six tribal councils — Cirie could be on track to winning her first $1 million check on her fourth try. Read my analysis of Cirie’s “Survivor” history below and then update your “Survivor 34” predictions in our weekly event.
As of this writing, the six castaways who’ve played for 100 days are Ozzy (120 days and counting), Rob Mariano (117 days), Parvati Shallow (114 days), Amanda Kimmel (108 days), Rupert Boneham (104 days) and Cirie (101 days and counting). From that group, only two are winners: Parvati for “Survivor: Micronesia” (Season 16) and “Boston” Rob for “Survivor: Redemption Island” (Season 22). See the complete “Survivor” winners list.
Cirie’s first season was “Panama: Exile Island” where she played for 36 days and entered America’s heart for her kind spirit and underdog nature. She got even closer to the finish line during her second appearance, playing for 38 days in “Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites,” where she had a more cunning and crafty strategy. She last played in “Heroes vs. Villains” where she was voted out on Day 11 thanks to being perceived as too much of a threat.
Both Cirie and Ozzy started out “Survivor: Game Changers” in the same position: they were huge threats, but for different reasons. While Ozzy is a physical beast, Cirie’s likability is her biggest asset and her biggest curse, because who would want to bring such a popular player to the finals with them? Amazingly, after two tribe switches and 16 days, Cirie and Ozzy are both still in the running to win their first $1 million prizes. Who will ultimately prevail?
