Geoffrey Cooke-Tonneson is a castaway from Survivor South Africa: Island of Secrets.

Known for his season-long bond with Mmaba Molefe, Geoffrey's willingness to play dirty allowed him to willingly play the villain and take credit for other moves, such as Nathan Castle's elimination. Upon reaching merge, Geoffrey's disdain from working with Meryl Szolkeiwicz and Danté De Villiers caused fractions within the tribe, but Geoffrey was successfully able to eliminate Meryl. However, he was perceived as untrustworthy by Rob Bentele and his alliance, resulting in his blindside elimination.

Surname: Cooke-Tonnesen
Age: 33
Occupation: Home loans Consultant
From: Colenso, KZN

Geoffrey is married with children and works as a home loans consultant. And that's where normality ends in Geoffrey's world. In his own words, he's a quirky goofball who has the tendency to gossip like a school girl. To that he adds that he is a shameless manipulator who has been called a "he-bitch" more than once. Yet, this tenacious lover of whatever causes drama knows just what to say to butter people up and make them love him. Yes, he is sneaky and conniving and doesn't really care what people think about him – as long as he does what is needed to win Survivor. Not so long ago risk-taker Geoffrey won a national body transformation challenge, losing 30 kg in just three months. Then he ran the Comrades marathon after training for only six months. Anything is possible when you're Geoffrey from Colenso in KZN.[1]
