After nearly two decades and 34 seasons, Ozzy Lusth and Cirie Fields now hold the record for playing more days of “Survivor” than anyone else in the show’s history. The two “Survivor: Game Changers” jury members are now the #1 and #2 longest-running castaways of all time, surpassing former record-holder “Boston” Rob Mariano in the process. Click through our “Survivor” photo gallery above that details the show’s 14 longest-running castaways.
As host Jeff Probst noted on-air during the Season 34 finale, Ozzy is the current record-holder at 128 days. “It’s nice to have records and all, but it would have been nicer to have the record of being number one!” joked Ozzy during his exit interview with Gold Derby. “Game Changers” was Ozzy’s fourth time on the show after being the runner-up in “Cook Islands” (Season 13), placing ninth in “Micronesia” (Season 16) and coming in fourth in “South Pacific” (Season 23).
Like Ozzy, “Survivor: Game Changers” was Cirie’s fourth chance at playing the game after coming in fourth place in “Panama” (Season 12), third in “Micronesia” (Season 16) and 17th in “Heroes vs. Villains” (Season 20). After making it to sixth place in Season 34, Cirie’s grand total now comes in at 121 days.
Of the 14 “Survivor” record-holders, only five are former winners: “Boston” Rob (“Redemption Island”) at 117 days, Parvati Shallow (“Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites”) at 114 days, Sandra Diaz-Twine (“Pearl Islands” and “Heroes vs. Villains”) at 94 days, Tina Wesson (“The Australian Outback”) at 83 days and Tyson Apostol (“Blood vs. Water”) at 81 days.
