Jonathan Young is a contestant from Survivor 42.

Recognized by Jeff Probst as one of the most dominant challenge performers in series history, Jonathan played a significant role in ensuring Taku's survival. While his status as his tribe's provider allowed him to become a core member of the Taku Four, his social game quickly deteriorated after the merge when his occasionally condescending tone alienated his former allies. Despite being a physical threat, Jonathan's transparent and loyal approach to the game earned him new allies like Mike Turner, allowing him to make a deep run until the final four against all expectations. There, he lost to Mike in the fire-making challenge and became the last member of the jury.
