Brian Corridan is a contestant from Survivor: Guatemala.

Notable for his team spirit, Brian emerged as an early front-runner when he successfully led Morgan McDevitt's blindside in order to save Lydia Morales. Relegated to the minority after the Tribe Switch, Brian was able to eliminate Blake Towsley, but was eliminated at the next Tribal Council for being the weakest.

Originally from New Milford, Connecticut, Brian Corridan graduated as valedictorian of his high school, where he also served as vice president of his class, yearbook editor and co-author of his senior play. He was also voted "Prom Prince" and "Most Likely to Succeed."

Corridan recently graduated with a psychology degree from Columbia University in New York City. While in college, he spent two years as a resident and peer advisor, a tour guide and a research assistant. He also joined the Phi Beta Kappa Society.

Corridan's hero is his younger sister, Casey, who rose above her juvenile diabetes to become the captain and star player of her high school field hockey team. He says the craziest thing he would do for a million dollars is check his ethics at the door and break loose with psychological mind games: lie, cheat, steal and flirt.

Corridan believes he can be the Sole Survivor because "I have studied the game since I was 17. I know every aspect of it, and I've written papers on it. My background in psychology will allow me to pinpoint people's insecurities and weaknesses and to manipulate them to my advantage." He describes himself as competitive, perceptive and sarcastic.

Corridan's goal is to return to school to obtain his doctorate in clinical psychology and become a child/adolescent psychologist. His birth date is February 10, 1983.[1]


Brian began the game on the Yaxhá tribe, and quickly bonded with Stephenie LaGrossa, Lydia Morales, Rafe Judkins, and Jamie Newton. He was a strong strategic player and contributed well to the challenges. He helped Yaxhá vote out Morgan McDevitt, saving his ally Lydia, and later Brianna Varela, when a tribal swap occurred. Brian remained on Yaxhá with fellow tribemates Amy O'Hara and Gary Hogeboom, but was outnumbered by the former Nakúm tribe members.

Yaxhá won immunity, but then lost the next challenge. Brian knew that Blake Towsley was getting on everyone's nerves with his crazy frat stories, and made sure to egg him on. This led to Bobby Jon Drinkard and Danni Boatwright voting with the former Yaxhá members to eliminate Blake, temporarily saving Brian. However, Yaxhá lost the next Immunity Challenge as well. Brian was targeted for being the weakest physically, and even Amy and Gary helped to vote him out unanimously.
