Andrew Savage is a contestant from Survivor: Pearl Islands and Survivor: Cambodia.

In Pearl Islands, Andrew was the leader of the Morgan tribe and was considered its strongest member. However, when The Outcasts returned, Andrew resented them. This would be his demise as Lillian Morris, one of the returning Outcasts, jumped ship at the merge, resulting in Andrew's and the Morgan Alliance's demise.

In Cambodia, Andrew was an integral part of the majority Bayon Alliance, orchestrating the eliminations of several members of the opposing Ta Keo tribe, as well as alliance defector Kass McQuillen. However, Andrew himself was blindsided shortly after the merge when Kelley Wentworth used a Hidden Immunity Idol.

Savage currently resides in Chicago with his wife, Stephanie (who is originally from the island of Mauritius), and their two daughters, Mackenzie, 5, and Skyleur, 3. He is currently employed as an intellectual property attorney at a major Chicago law firm. Savage and his wife previously owned an import/export company in South Africa. Savage earned a Juris Doctorate in law from the University of Cincinnati. His three favorite hobbies are rugby, cross-training and playing with his wife and kids. He describes himself as athletic, adventurous and ambitious. He is most proud of the fact that he met and married his soul mate and fathered two angelic girls. He is also proud of his brother, John, a singer/songwriter who has topped the charts on MP3 for his self-titled 1998 release, "John Savage" (a new release is due in the Fall of 2003). His hero is Nelson Mandela because he feels he is the truest Sole Survivor. In Savage's words, "President Mandela outwitted, outplayed and outlasted a troubled nation decimated by racism to eventually lead the country down the path to equality." He feels he's up for Survivor: Pearl Islands because of his intelligence, athleticism and ability to get along with everyone in emotionally charged situations. His birth date is July 29, 1963.[1]

Pearl Islands[]

Andrew was initially placed on the Morgan tribe. After reaching camp, Andrew assumed the leadership position unchallenged. When Morgan lost the first Immunity ChallengeLillian Morris informed the tribe that Nicole Delma was trying to blindside Tijuana Bradley. At Tribal Council, Andrew joined the rest of the tribe in voting out the untrustworthy Nicole over the weak Lillian. After Nicole's elimination, Andrew formed a majority alliance with Tijuana, Darrah JohnsonOsten Taylor, and Ryan Opray. Morgan generally lost challenges and the rival Drake tribe constantly looted the Morgan camp. This became a problem when Drake's Sandra Diaz-Twine looted the tarp and dismantled their shelter in the process. Andrew became upset when Osten announced that he wanted to quit after Morgan lost the second Immunity Challenge. Andrew denied Osten's wish to be eliminated at Tribal Council and voted out their perceived weakest member Ryan Shoulders. Lillian was upset that Ryan S. was voted out over Osten as she felt that Osten quit on the tribe and thus deserved to be voted out, but Andrew disagreed, saying that he did not actually quit. When Morgan again lost immunity, Lillian was voted out next on Andrew's request.

At the Immunity Challenge on Day 12, Morgan finally won after Drake threw the challenge. An additional stipulation included was that Morgan won the right to kidnap one of Drake's members; they chose to kidnap Rupert Boneham. Rupert viewed the tribe's work as poor and help them improved their camp. With Rupert's help, Morgan won its first Reward Challenge. Andrew was selected to loot the Drake camp, where he took a bag of rice. Morgan again won immunity, but lost the Reward Challenge on Day 17 and Drake sent Jon Dalton to loot the camp. Jon behaved himself at the camp, impressing Andrew, who gave him some shampoo as a diplomatic gesture. However, Jon revealed that Drake threw the challenge that got Morgan its first immunity win. Andrew was angered by the fact that Jon tried to take the satisfaction of their victory away from them. Andrew made Jon eat his words by holding 180 pounds at the Immunity Challenge, giving Morgan another victory.

The tribe numbers were even when the first six eliminated players returned for one last shot at redemption on Day 19. When The Outcasts won the Immunity Challenge, both Drake and Morgan were sent to Tribal Council to vote someone out, who would then be replaced by someone The Outcasts voted back into the game. At Morgan's Tribal Council, Osten once again said that he wanted to quit. After the whole tribe verbally promised Osten that they would vote him out, a regular vote was deemed unnecessary and Osten became the first person to quit Survivor.

Lillian and Burton Roberts were selected by The Outcasts tribe to return to the game, with Lillian rejoining Morgan. Andrew still shunned Lillian, making her question her trust toward them. The next day, the tribes merged into the Balboa tribe. When he lost the first individual Immunity Challenge, Andrew was targeted for being the leader of the Morgan Alliance, in addition to being the biggest physical threat. Andrew and his allies tried to turn the vote against Jon (whom he called "Little Jon" to irritate him), but Lillian flipped to the Drake Alliance, leaving Andrew to be blindsided in a 6-4 vote.

Andrew was one of twenty castaways chosen by public vote to compete on the second chance season, Survivor: Cambodia.

Andrew was initially placed on the Bayon tribe, where he formed an alliance with Jeremy Collins. On Day 5, he told his tribe a heartfelt story about how he met his wife, which made everyone including himself cry. When Jeremy left the shelter after hearing Andrew's story, Stephen Fishbach accused him of looking for the Hidden Immunity Idol. Andrew went to comfort Jeremy and told him that Stephen had accused him of looking for the idol, so they decided to target Stephen. Bayon won the first two Immunity Challenges. On Day 7, a tribe expansion occurred, with the tribes going from two to three. Both Andrew and Tasha Fox were switched to new Angkor tribe, where they found themselves down in numbers to the original Ta Keo tribe. Despite being on the bottom, both Andrew and Tasha made deals with the other Ta Keos to protect them. After Angkor lost the next Immunity Challenge, both Andrew and Tasha campaigned for Jeff Varner's elimination, but Abi-Maria Gomes wanted to get rid of Peih-Gee Law because of their conflict. At Tribal Council, Andrew and Tasha, along with Abi-Maria and Jeff, sent Peih-Gee home. After they lost their second Immunity Challenge in a row, Angkor voted out Jeff for being the physically weakest member.

On Day 14, another tribe switch occurred, sending Andrew, Abi-Maria, and Woo Hwang to the Ta Keo tribe where they were joined by Andrew's original Bayon allies Ciera Eastin and Kass McQuillen, as well as original Ta Keos Kelly Wiglesworth and Spencer Bledsoe. Andrew got Abi-Maria, Ciera, Kass, and Woo to target Spencer, but told them that they would tell Spencer that Ciera was the target, which made Ciera question her position in the alliance. After Ta Keo lost the Immunity Challenge, Andrew's alliance confirmed that they would target Spencer. However, Woo was blindsided when Abi-Maria, Ciera, and Kass decided to side with Spencer, leaving Andrew angry with Kass for betraying him, believing that she was no longer loyal to the Bayon Alliance.

When the tribes merged into the Orkun tribe on Day 17, Andrew was reunited with Jeremy, Tasha, and his other allies. Both Andrew and Jeremy rekindled the original Bayon Alliance with Stephen, Tasha, and Kimmi Kappenberg, with the addition of Kelly. After Ciera revealed to Jeremy and Joe Anglim that Andrew and Woo discussed getting rid of them, Andrew denied saying that and targeted her. After the Immunity Challenge, Andrew wanted to vote Ciera out for the lies she had spread, but his allies wanted to target Kass. The Bayon Alliance decided to split their votes between Ciera and Kass in case Kass had a Hidden Immunity Idol, and at Tribal Council, Kass was voted out. On Day 21, Andrew overheard Stephen propose to Spencer a plan to blindside Joe, so he outed Stephen to Joe. When Joe again won immunity, Andrew and Joe recruited Kelly, as well as the Witches' Coven alliance of Abi-Maria, Ciera, and Kelley Wentworth to blindside Stephen, but Jeremy was able to talk Andrew out of it. At Tribal Council, the Bayon Alliance voted for Kelley. However, Kelley played her idol, negating the Bayon Alliance's nine votes against her and the Witches' Coven's votes sent Andrew home. While leaving, Abi-Maria told him that he at least made the jury, which annoyed Andrew and he flipped her off.

At the Final Tribal Council, Andrew called Jeremy and Spencer arrogant for their behavior at Kimmi and Kelley's last Tribal Councils respectively. Ultimately, Andrew voted for Jeremy, who won in a unanimous 10-0-0 vote.
