Survivor Wiki

Libby Vincek is a contestant from Survivor: Ghost Island.

Being one of the more influential members of her tribe socially, Libby was a major factor in causing Morgan Ricke's and Bradley Kleihege's respective blindsides. However, this social prowess made her a target of the Naviti women come the merge. At the second post-merge Tribal Council, after intended target Michael Yerger played a Hidden Immunity Idol, she was pinned as the secondary target and eliminated in a 4-1-0 vote.

Age: 24
Hometown: Houston, Texas
Current residence: Houston, Texas
Occupation: Social Media Strategist
Hobbies: Working out (boxing, running, weights), traveling, and cooking.
Pet peeves: When people don't put away simple belongings, loud chewing, and slow walkers.
Three words to describe you: Adventurous, strong, and outgoing.
What's your personal claim to fame? Training and completing a marathon! I tried while I was in Florida and my coach was in Texas. Crossing that finish line faster than my goal time was an incredible feeling.
Who or what is your inspiration in life? Elisabeth Filarski-Hasselbeck. I began to look up to Elisabeth when I first saw her on Survivor when I was 9 years old. Even at a young age, I looked up to her not only because of her outer beauty, but her noticeably beautiful heart and work ethic. I continued to follow her in all aspects of life, from standing up for her beliefs to working with people who stand on her same side. I am a strong believer in my faith and when it comes to politics, let's just say I'm a true southern girl. She is a badass blonde, but shows that her faith and family come first. To be able to balance all of that like she does makes her a hero and a mentor to me.
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? My Bible because my faith is everything, a baseball hat, and a huge bag of my family's smokehouse Turkey Jerky.
Which Survivor contestant are you most like? I would play a combination of Jenna Morasca and Kim Spradlin, and a little bit of Natalie White. Jenna because of her strategy to flirt to the finish. She wasn't afraid of much and used her strengths like beauty, social and brains to get her to the top. Kim because of her ability to keep cool when necessary and her athletic ability was on point. Natalie, because she used her southern outgoing charm to win hearts and keep her social game strong.
What's your reason for being on Survivor? To win a million dollars. And to prove that this southern small town blonde is more than just a pretty face. I love adventure. I love challenges and I love to overcome them. Winning could be my chance to show the bullies in high school that I'm not little 'ol Libby anymore. It's a chance to show off my skills and strengths and use them to their full potential. Being on Survivor has been a dream of mine. I feel like God's been putting me through challenges and experiences in life to prepare me for this.
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? Because I know that I can outlast and outplay! I work out a lot. I have endurance, I danced for 12 years. I have balance. I've completed tough mudders, marathons, and other races so I can get myself through challenges. My social game is strong. Making friends and alliances wouldn't be an issue for me. Though I now work with technology and digital media, I grew up camping, hunting, and fishing. I love the outdoors so I know I can use that experience and those skills to outlast those 39 days. I'm strong, smart, and pretty and I know how to use it.[2]


Libby began the season as a member of the Malolo tribe. Though Malolo proved to be the weaker of the two tribes, Libby remained safe during the first two Tribal Councils, seemingly aligning herself with Brendan Shapiro and Michael Yerger. On Day 7, a tribe switch sent Libby to the new Naviti tribe, where she quickly bonded with Morgan Ricke due to their shared faiths. After losing the next Immunity Challenge, Angela Perkins advocated voting out Libby. However, Domenick Abbate planned to blindside Angela instead, due to her allegiance to his rival Chris Noble. Seeing an opportunity to eliminate an original Naviti member, James Lim pushed for the original Malolos to vote against Morgan, which Libby objected to. At Tribal Council, Libby ultimately sided with the original Malolos to blindside Morgan, who was narrowly voted out over Angela.

Libby remained on Naviti following a second tribe switch on Day 15; alongside fellow Malolo, Donathan Hurley. Outnumbered by the original Naviti members 3-2, Libby was quickly targeted by Domenick and Bradley Kleihege for her role in Morgan's elimination. However, Bradley's condescending and negative attitude quickly began to irritate his allies. As a result, when Naviti lost Immunity on Day 19, Libby was spared and Bradley was voted out unanimously.

The following day, Libby was among the contestants to join the newly merged Lavita tribe. While the consensus was that one of either Chris, Domenick, or Wendell Holland would be the first voted out of the tribe, several of the Naviti women conspired to vote out Libby, resulting in her receiving votes at the first merged Tribal Council. Frustrated to have gotten votes against her again, Libby was informed by Angela that it was largely due to her close connection with Michael, as well as her status as an original Malolo.

When neither Libby or Michael won the Immunity Challenge on Day 25, the majority Naviti alliance planned to split the vote between the two in case either possessed a Hidden Immunity Idol. Though Libby initially wanted to vote against Wendell with Michael, she was advised by Domenick to vote against Michael instead, reassuring her that she was not the primary target of the split vote. At Tribal Council, Libby reluctantly voted for Michael. However, he played a Hidden Immunity Idol, cancelling the seven votes against him and eliminating Libby in a 4-1-0 vote. Libby became the second juror and voted for Domenick to be the Sole Survivor.
