Bradley Robert Kleihege[2] is a contestant from Survivor: Ghost Island.

Despite always finding himself in the majority through multiple Tribe Switches, Bradley's negative and seemingly bossy personality led to him not being well-liked by his fellow tribemates. This came to a head when his allies Chelsea Townsend and Domenick Abbate, sick of Bradley's arrogant nature, decided to flip against him at Tribal Council in favor of outsider Libby Vincek, eliminating him just short of the merge.

Age: 26
Hometown: Haslett, Michigan
Current residence: Los Angeles, California
Occupation: Law student
Hobbies: Sailing, skiing, and running.
Pet peeves: Stupid people and people who think they know everything.
Three words to describe you: Ambitious, impatient, and astute.
What's your personal claim to fame? Getting on Survivor. But really, I am most proud of getting into UCLA Law, one of the best law schools in the country. Additionally, making it through the first year of law school taught me a lot about drive and perseverance.
Who or what is your inspiration in life? I don't have a particular source of inspiration in life because I don't believe in emulating or worshipping anyone. I think that everyone has positive traits to draw from as well as less desirable aspects.
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? First, a notebook and pen to organize my thoughts and strategy. Second, my retainers because I have had my braces off for over a decade but am still too scared to try not wearing them. What if my pearly whites started moving around? And finally, a bottle of rum because no self-respecting sailor would be caught on a remote island without rum.
Which Survivor contestant are you most like? I am passionate, competitive, and neurotic like Spencer. Also, I have the same penchant as him for making people feel irrelevant and that is something I will have to be very careful not to do during the game.
What's your reason for being on Survivor? To take a shot at playing a game I have watched religiously and loved since I was 9. I'd also like to win the million so I can pay off my student loans and then buy a sailboat and sail around the world.
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I like to lead people and take initiative. Plus, I like to roast people and what doesn't build tribe morale more on Survivor than a few laughs from roasting the other tribe? I can also cook a mean batch of rice.[3]


Bradley started the game on the Naviti tribe, who won the first two Immunity Challenges. This helped give him the numbers after the Tribe Switch, where he was switched to Malolo along with Kellyn, Sebastian, Desiree, and Chelsea. When they got there, Bradley got on the nerves of the original Malolo's by complaining about how they built their shelter compared to Naviti. He and Kellyn were major rivals to the Malolo majority, so Kellyn made a pact to remain Naviti strong. After Malolo lost the Immunity Challenge on Day 12, Bradley was targeted by Malolo for his arrogance. Chelsea proposed targeting Brendan for being the leader of the original Malolo's, and to also flush out the Malolo's Hidden Immunity Idol. At Tribal Council, despite the Malolo's trying to get Chelsea and Sebastian to flip, the plan succeeded as the Naviti's stayed strong and blindsided Brendan after Michael misplayed his idol for Stephanie. When Malolo lost immunity again on Day 14, Michael pled his case to Bradley saying that the tribe needed him for the challenges. At Tribal Council, Stephanie was unanimously voted out for her strategic prowess.

A second Tribe Switch occurred the next day, and Bradley and Chelsea were swapped back to Naviti. His original Naviti tribemate Domenick talked about targeting Libby for her role in Morgan's blindside. However, Bradley's condescending attitude during the Reward Challenge and at camp rubbed Donathan and Domenick the wrong way. After Naviti lost the final challenge before the merge, Bradley talked with Chelsea about targeting Libby, but unbeknownst to him, Chelsea talked with Libby about targeting Bradley for his arrogance and negativity around camp, and Domenick considered targeting him, thinking that his presence could be a problem at the merge. At Tribal Council, Bradley voted Libby as planned, but Chelsea and Domenick sided with the Malolo's and blindsided him unanimously, just barely missing the merge and the jury.
