On January 28, 2001, my parents and I stayed late at a Superbowl party to watch the premiere of Survivor: The Australian Outback. We were instantly hooked, and the show became a weekly family tradition. Our passion for the game quickly spread to loved ones, and large finale parties became a bi-annual event.
Because of my dad's curating business, he became interested in collecting Survivor memorabilia, bidding in prop auctions, and hosting in-person autograph signings with various contestants (including Colby Donaldson, Ethan Zohn, Andrew Savage, Chad Crittenden, Stephanie LaGrossa, and Ozzy Lusth). Jeff Probst deemed him "THE GATEKEEPER OF ALL THAT IS SURVIVOR!
Sadly, my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer on December 20, 2019 and passed away on May 30, 2020. Survivor: Winners at War was the perfect way to spend our last season together. My mom, my husband, and I created this website to share items he treasured for years with fellow superfans.
