Seen as foolish and easily manipulated, Ben's weakness in the challenges and lack of strategy saw many consider him as an easy goat to take to the end. Once being swapped over to [[Samatau]], Ben allied with [[Jarrad Seng]], and seemed destined to reach merge once [[Michelle Dougan]], who was stuck on the outs of Samatau, joined his tribe. However, she quickly turned to the tribe against him, using his bad communication skills against him, sending Ben home in 14th place.

Revision as of 12:00, December 18, 2019

Benjamin "Ben" Morgan is a contestant from Australian Survivor (2017).

Seen as foolish and easily manipulated, Ben's weakness in the challenges and lack of strategy saw many consider him as an easy goat to take to the end. Once being swapped over to Samatau, Ben allied with Jarrad Seng, and seemed destined to reach merge once Michelle Dougan, who was stuck on the outs of Samatau, joined his tribe. However, she quickly turned to the tribe against him, using his bad communication skills against him, sending Ben home in 14th place.

Profile

Age: 20
Occupation: Fast Food Attendant​
State: Western Australia
Tribe: Asaga

The youngest of this year's contestants, Ben works as a fast food attendant and lives at home with his parents. Describing himself as "odd", Ben is currently single and thinks his lack of flirting skills is to blame. "My Tinder profile states 'I'm single and ready to mingle but not very good at mingling'. I plan on keeping flirting to a minimum on the island because it's not exactly my strong point."

A super fan of the series, he watched last year's Australian Survivor with a keen eye, choosing Phoebe as his favourite player. "Not only was it an epic move when she played her idol and kicked off Craig, but it showed the rest of the [contestants] how to finally play," he said.

Ben's knowledge of the game and his age are his strongest points of difference. "I think I'm here because I'm authentic and believe that I can navigate my way through the game, despite my young age. I'm unique in the sense that I don't have much life experience and have never left home but hopefully that will work for me."

Ben is also hoping to get through to the final merge and play as an individual, as he thinks that is where his strengths will lie. "I'm a notorious klutz so in challenges that require some dexterity, I may provide some comedy gold. My strength will be in endurance-based challenges," he said. "Mentally, I have not prepared whatsoever as I don't believe there is much that can prepare you for this experience. Physically, I'm trying to gain weight so I've got reserves."[1]
