Joseph "Joe" Anglim is a contestant from Survivor: Worlds Apart, Survivor: Cambodia, and Survivor: Edge of Extinction.

Joe found himself in a good position during the early stages of Worlds Apart due to his alliance with Hali Ford and Jenn Brown. Despite being targeted after being separated from his allies at the Tribe Switch, he was spared at the last vote before the merge. Following the merge, however, he became the main target to the majority Escameca Alliance. Despite managing to stave off elimination for a few rounds by going on a short immunity run, it came to an end at the final ten. Although he attempted to save himself by attempting to trick Mike Holloway with a fake idol, Mike had the real idol and saw Joe as a strategic threat, resulting in his elimination.

In Cambodia, he managed to breeze though the pre-merge phase as his tribe won every tribal Immunity Challenge, positioning him as an enticing "meat shield" for Jeremy Collins. Following the merge, he dominated in challenges, thus making him a big target, particularly to Stephen Fishbach. After losing immunity at the final eight when he passed out during the Immunity Challenge, he was voted out for being the biggest challenge threat.

On his third go around in Edge of Extinction, he found himself on the bottom of the Kama tribe from the start for being a returning player, but managed to breeze through the pre-merge again due to his tribe's success in Immunity Challenges. However, after failing to win the first individual Immunity Challenge, he was voted out for being the biggest physical threat. Despite having an opportunity to re-enter the game by winning the final Edge of Extinction re-entry duel, he narrowly lost to the eventual Sole Survivor, Chris Underwood.

Name (Age): Joe Anglim, 25
Tribe Designation: No Collar (Nagarote)
Current Residence: Scottsdale, Ariz.
Occupation: Jewelry Designer
Personal Claim to Fame: I am most proud of winning a state championship for basketball my senior year of high school. In college, I played indoor volleyball at Northern Arizona University. After four years of being self-coached and self-funded, we upset the number one team in the nation in the finals of a Vegas tournament.
Inspiration in Life: My Dad. My whole life, he was incredibly hard on me and always pushing me to become better at everything I did. He grew up very poor and in a large family in which he endured a lot of hardships. Through the pain and sadness of divorce, family tragedies and death of loved ones, he was still able to keep faith and carry on. He has been an amazing father and role model to me and my sisters and he is a loyal hardworking husband who puts others before himself. I've always looked up to him and I hope that I can be as strong, loving and fearless as he is when I become a husband and father.
Hobbies: I enjoy anything that allows me to work with my hands. These include metalworking, painting, drawing and welding. I also love the outdoors- you name it: Hiking, climbing, hunting, camping, etc.
What is your favorite sport? It's a true tie between basketball and volleyball. I love hoops but the last several years I've been playing a lot of sand volleyball which I love playing down here in the valley of the sun.
Pet Peeves: Bad hygiene, rude, inconsiderate people, that person with really nasty coffee breath who has no idea what personal space is, when the last person to use the bathroom doesn't replace the empty toilet paper roll and when someone is telling a story and every other word is "like."
3 Words to Describe You: Creative, compassionate and charismatic.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1. A fully stocked self-replenishing ice-chest. 2. A toothbrush since I hate the feeling of my teeth being grimy. 3. Loaded up iPod because I love listening to music.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: There are so many players that I relate to in different ways. In terms of game play, I would have to say it's a combination of Malcolm and Ozzy.
Reason for Being on Survivor: Ever since I can remember I have wanted to be on Survivor. My primary motivation is that every day I dream about competing and earning the title of Sole Survivor. With every season, my desire to play has grown more and more. The game is a true test of self-awareness as well as mental, physical and emotional determination. There is also a perk of a million dollars. I would honestly play Survivor for way less but the fact that it is one million dollars makes it that much sweeter.
Why You'll "Survive" Survivor: I would be an asset to the tribe because I am athletic and very competitive. I love competition and I hate losing. I am not lazy and I don't mind doing what needs to get done in order to help others. I feel that I'm in decent physical shape, but I will work hard and will bust my butt in challenges and around camp. I have worked in different jobs that have focused on customer service and have dealt with a wide range of diversity in the workplace. This has taught me how to communicate and connect with people I don't know. I'm a very social person and I enjoy getting to know people and their story. Being one of the most important aspects of Survivor, I feel my social game will be strong and lead to my success in the game.
Why Will You Be the Sole Survivor: With every season I watch, I can't help but imagine that I'm actually in the game playing. My brain goes into game/strategy mode as I put myself in the shoes of the current contestants and analyze how I would deal with the conflicts each is faced with. Of course, it's different when you're sitting at home on the couch and know what every player is thinking. However, I feel that I am well rounded enough, athletic enough and mentally strong enough to adapt to the people I'm put with. I am confident in the life skills I possess and I feel I can maintain my focus despite all of the other personal and crazy things the game may and will throw my way. After being such a huge fan for so many years, I truly respect how complex and challenging the game is. I am ready to battle and I want my shot in the ultimate arena that is Survivor.[1]

Survivor

Worlds Apart

Joe was placed on the "No Collar" Nagarote tribe, where he immediately fit in, not just because of his physical abilities, but his camp life skills and personality. He and Jenn Brown had an immediate bond, which made Vince Sly insecure about his position in the game. Joe formed a strong alliance with Jenn and Hali Ford, with Will Sims II as their fourth, not knowing that Will was working with Vince and Nina Acosta. Nagarote went to their first Tribal Council on Day 6, with Joe's alliance planning to split the votes between Nina and Vince, then voting out the weaker Nina in the revote. Will wavered between targeting Jenn or Nina until Nina told Will that Vince was concerned with Will's health after a poor challenge performance. Will took this as a threat, so Will went rogue and voted for Vince, which sent him home over the intended target Nina. This shock move caused Joe's alliance to question whether to vote Nina or Will out next. They would have to make a decision sooner than later following a second consecutive Immunity Challenge loss. They split the vote between the two, but took out Nina.

After the Tribe Switch on Day 12, Joe was the only member of his original tribe on the new Escameca tribe, which had four original Blue Collars and two original White Collars. Joe initially sided with White Collars Joaquin Souberbielle and Tyler Fredrickson as they hoped to swing Sierra Dawn Thomas on their side. However, Joaquin began getting closer to Rodney Lavoie Jr., and the two of them targeted Joe, forcing Joe to work with Dan Foley and Mike Holloway, the latter of whom was especially concerned that Joaquin and Rodney would become a power couple following the merge. After Escameca lost the Immunity Challenge on Day 16, Joe, Dan, and Mike succeeded in gaining Sierra's trust and Joaquin was voted out in a close 4-3 vote.

Despite working with the Blue Collars following the switch, Joe returned to his Nagarote Alliance, which managed to recruit Shirin Oskooi, post-merge, thus leaving the remaining White Collars Tyler and Carolyn Rivera as the swing votes. Joe was the target of the Escameca Alliance for his physical strength, but that plan was put on hold as Joe won the first two individual Immunity Challenges. Though Joe's alliance was able to deal a blow to the opposing alliance thanks to Jenn's Hidden Immunity Idol play during the first vote to oust Kelly Remington, losing Carolyn, Tyler, and Will to the Escameca Alliance resulted in Hali being voted out during Joe's second round of immunity. At that point, Jenn expressed her desire to leave the game, while Joe, on the other hand, was determined to stay in the game by any means necessary. Joe finally lost immunity to Tyler on Day 24, prompting him to draw on his skills as a jewelry designer to make a fake idol in the hopes that it would save him. He gave it to Mike hoping to establish a level of trust, and Mike considered keeping him over Jenn. However, Mike knew that the idol was fake as he had a real one, and the plan to take out Joe finally came to fruition, making him the second member of the jury.

At the Final Tribal Council, Joe would vote for Mike over Carolyn and Will, helping him win the title of Sole Survivor.

Cambodia

Joe was chosen by public vote as one of the twenty castaways to compete on Survivor: Cambodia for a second chance at Survivor.

Joe was originally placed on the Bayon tribe, were he quickly adapted socially and took on the role of a provider. On Day 1, he formed an alliance with Jeremy Collins. However, Stephen Fishbach wanted to target Joe, viewing him as being similar to J.T. Thomas, to whom Stephen lost to in his previous season. Bayon won the first two Immunity Challenges, before a Tribe Switch occurred on Day 7, sending Joe, along with Ciera Eastin, Kass McQuillen, and Keith Nale to the Ta Keo tribe. Ta Keo proved to be successful, winning the next three Immunity Challenges. Around this time, Joe and his original Bayon contingent made an alliance with outsider Kelley Wentworth to target Terry Deitz. However, on Night 13, host Jeff Probst came to their camp to inform Terry that he was being pulled from the game due to his son's medical condition at home. The next day, another Tribe Switch, sending Joe, Keith, and Kelley to Bayon, with other original Bayon members Jeremy, Stephen, Kimmi Kappenberg, and Tasha Fox. Although it seemed that Kelley would be the next target due to being the only original Ta Keo member, Joe contemplated working with her as he saw her as a number following the merge. However, any plotting was put on hold when Bayon won the Final Immunity Challenge before the merge.

On Day 17, the tribes into the Orkun tribe. Joe, Keith, and Spencer Bledsoe found themselves in between the Bayon Alliance and the minority alliance of Ciera, Kass, Kelley, and Abi-Maria Gomes. After Joe won the first individual Immunity Challenge, Joe sided with the Bayon Alliance in taking out Kass. The following day, Joe's team won the Reward Challenge and while on the reward trip, they identified Jeremy, Stephen, Tasha, and Andrew Savage as the core of the Bayon Alliance, wanting to target Stephen next, especially after Andrew confirmed to Joe that Stephen is targeting him. When Joe again won immunity, he proposed working with Ciera, Kelley, and Kelly Wiglesworth to take out Stephen. However, the plan is shut down when word gets back to the core Bayon Alliance, leaving Joe no choice but to vote with them. At Tribal Council, the alliance targeted Kelley, but she used her Hidden Immunity Idol to save herself, sending Andrew home instead. When Joe won his third immunity in a row, plans to vote him out were again squashed. Instead, the tribe the Witches' Coven alliance of Abi-Maria, Ciera, and Kelley worked with Jeremy, Spencer, and Stephen to take out Kelly, fearing Joe's relationship with her.

Over the next few days, the tribe would be battered by the heavy Cambodian rain, prompting host Jeff Probst to offer the tribe a better shelter, but only if at least half of them agreed to sit out the next Immunity Challenge. Only Joe and Keith elected to compete in the challenge, with Joe besting Keith to win his immunity in a row. At Tribal Council, Joe, Keith, Spencer, and Tasha joined the Witches' Coven in splitting their votes between Stephen and Kimmi, fearing the unknown advantage that Stephen possessed. However, Jeremy played a Hidden Immunity Idol on Stephen, saving and and resulting in Ciera's elimination. When Joe finally lost an Immunity Challenge on Day 29, he was targeted by Stephen once again. At Tribal Council, Stephen used his advantage, which he revealed to be a Vote Steal, to steal Joe's vote. However, the core Bayon Alliance fatally split their votes between Joe and Abi-Maria, allowing Joe's voting bloc of Abi-Maria, Keith, Kelley, and Spencer to have enough votes to save Joe and send Stephen home instead.

On Day 30, the remaining castaways were surprised by a visit from their loved ones, including Joe's father Pat. After Kelley won the Reward Challenge, she chose to share the reward with Joe, Abi-Maria, Keith, and Kimmi, along with their respective loved ones. On the reward, Joe's dad told him that he considered him a friend, which touched Joe because his dad had been hard on him all his life. At the next Immunity Challenge, Joe again found himself fighting with Keith for immunity, which was ultimately won by Keith after Joe fainted. Medical checked on Joe after the challenge, clearing him to continue with the game. Back at camp, he proposed voting out Abi-Maria to Jeremy and Spencer since everybody wanted to take her to the end. At Tribal Council, however, Joe was eliminated in a 6-1-1 vote.

At the Final Tribal Council, Joe said that his vote was still up for grabs and told Tasha that she was unaware that she played Jeremy's game, asking her to name a move that she made. Ultimately, Joe along with the rest of the jury, voted for Jeremy to win the title of Sole Survivor.

Edge of Extinction

Joe was originally placed on the Kama tribe, along with fellow returning player Aubry Bracco. However, the two found themselves on the outs of their tribe, with only Aurora McCreary aligning with them. He and Aubry were immediately targeted by the Kama Six alliance, who resented having returning players in the game and viewed the two as threats. Though Joe tried to ingratiate himself with the rest of the tribe with his work ethic, the majority remained steadfast in targeting the returning players, at one point overhearing a conversation between Ron Clark and Victoria Baamonde on which of him, Aubry, or Aurora to vote out should Kama lose an Immunity Challenge. However, Joe's strength in challenges contributed to Kama winning the first three Immunity Challenges, saving them from Tribal Council.

On Day 9, a Tribe Switch occurred, with Joe remaining on Kama, along with Aurora, Ron, Julia Carter, and Julie Rosenberg. Joe tried to pull Ron into an alliance with him and Aurora, believing to have a good rapport with him. Although Ron seemingly agreed with Joe's proposal, it was in reality just a ruse to distract him so that Julia would have time to search through Joe's bag for a possible Hidden Immunity Idol. After seeing his ally Aubry get voted out on the Manu tribe, Joe tried to pull Julia in, reasoning with her that they were both physical threats. Again, Kama won the next three Immunity Challenges, preventing any plans to vote Joe out.

On Day 17, the tribes merged into the Vata tribe. Seeing that the Kama Six was still intent on targeting him, Joe tried to strike an alliance with his fellow Cambodia returnee Kelley Wentworth and her allies Lauren O'Connell and Wardog DaSilva about working together to target Rick Devens. After losing the first individual Immunity Challenge to Julie, Joe was approached by Ron on who the Kama contingent would target from the Manu Alliance. However, Joe's vague answers worried Ron, who then pushed for the Kama Six to follow through with the plan to target Joe. At Tribal Council, Joe and Aurora voted against Rick; despite having a 7-6 advantage over the Kama Six, however, the internal disarray within the Manu Alliance prevented any solid plan from forming, allowing the Kama Six to take control, successfully voting out Joe, who elected to go to the Edge of Extinction.

Joe did not mind being on the Edge of Extinction, giving him plenty of time to reflect on his cumulative Survivor experience. At the re-entry duel on Day 35, Joe was in the lead on the final stage of the challenge, but dropped his last ball, allowing Chris Underwood to win and earn a spot back in the game, permanently eliminating Joe and the other castaways on the Edge of Extinction from the game. At the Final Tribal Council, he voted for Chris to win the title of Sole Survivor.
