Biggest cheater in the game. Dude would of never won on the island if it weren't for Kenny an that's a fact, that means no ruins an season 21 was handed to em. He deserves season 22 I give em that season 25 was sketchy. He took amphetamines on 28 which means he smuggled drug's an MTV still caters to his ego
