Miss Survivor was a post-game event that happened every year on Rob Has a Podcast. It let the viewers of RHAP vote on who they would like to win the crown Miss Survivor.
Over the period of Miss Survivor, there have been many different formats.
In the original version (2012), Miss Survivor was invented. The format was that the viewers could pick up to five contestants that played all-time on Survivor. Then the top five selected would then have to accept the invitation, if they do not the next on the list would be selected. Then each contestant would be interviewed stating why they should be the first Miss Survivor. Finally the viewers would vote for the winner.
In 2013, the same format would happen with one twist: only the 18 female contestants from seasons that aired in 2012 (Survivor: One World and Survivor: Philippines) would be eligible. Then viewers could vote up to three people only once who they wanted in the finale. Then the women would be revealed from 18th down to 4th place. Then after the top three would be announced the same procedures, but if someone in the final three dropped out, they would not be replaced or if two or all three a different solution would be issued, but is not currently announced. But after interviews and a debate, the viewers would vote for a winner.
Abi's Write-In Campaign
On January 31, 2013 Abi-Maria Gomes announced the beginning of her campaign as a write-in candidate for the Miss Survivor 2013 Finals. Her campaign rapidly took to Twitter with the hashtag #OccupyRHAP. Gomes requested that she be included in the debate and have her name on the voting ballot as a fourth party candidate. On February 4, 2013 Rob Cesternino, after conferring with Russell Hantz and former Miss Survivor winner Parvati Shallow, concluded that Gomes would not be allowed to participate in the debate, and could only be allowed to have her name on the ballot if all three Miss Survivor 2013 finalists agreed to let her do so.
In December 2013, Rob announced the addition of a Mr. Survivor pageant to accompany Miss Survivor. As before, only the 20 women from the 2013 seasons of Survivor, Survivor: Caramoan and Survivor: Blood vs. Water, were eligible to campaign and compete for Miss Survivor, with the same holding true for the 20 men in Mr. Survivor. Several days after the Miss Survivor Top 3 results were announced, Rob received no confirmation from Brenda that she accepted her Miss Survivor nomination, therefore the fourth-place finisher in the preliminary round, Candice Cody, took her place in the finals.
On February 24, Andrea was crowned Miss Survivor 2014 with 50.4% of the 9365 votes, leaving Candice in second with 33.4% and Ciera in third with 16.2% of the votes.
Voting was open from January 18, 2015 until January 24, 2015. The Final 3 was revealed during a live announcement on January 28, 2015 with Miss Survivor 2014, Andrea Boehlke.
At the end of the voting, the 3rd and 4th placers were in a close vote that it was decided that the 4th placer would also be competing for the title along with the Final 3. With this situation, the replacement rule would not be applied, unless more than one of the finalists step down.
On January 12, 2016, it was announced that Rob Has a Podcast would not be running the Miss and Mr. Survivor to not cause more conflict between the candidates following the season finale of Survivor: Cambodia and rest the image of the contests. The contests would be back in 2017.
The contests did not return in 2017. Rob announced that they would not be returning.
