Morgan McLeod is a contestant from Survivor: Cagayan.
As a member of the Beauty tribe, Morgan lived up to her tribe's designation, demonstrating a persistent preoccupation with, and pride in, her own attractiveness. At the reconstituted Aparri tribe, she ingratiated herself to the majority alliance and, unlike her former Beauty tribemates, was never under suspicion of disloyalty. However, after the merge, she was relegated to the minority by the defection of Kass McQuillen and the blindside of Sarah Lacina, and Morgan's own elimination soon followed.

Name: Morgan McLeod (21)
Tribe Designation: Beauty Tribe
Current Residence: San Jose, Calif.
Occupation: Ex-NFL Cheerleader
Personal Claim to Fame: I am most proud of being selected to the cheerleading squad for the San Francisco 49ers while still in high school.
Inspiration in Life: My dad is my hero because he has worked so hard and sacrificed so much in his life to make mine the best it could possibly be. He is the funniest and most handsome man I know.
Hobbies: Interior design, working out and dancing.
Pet Peeves: Slow drivers, guys leaving the toilet seat up, when people fish for compliments, terrible pickup lines.
3 Words to Describe You: Mature, determined and attractive.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? A razor because hairy legs are not cute, a camera to document my adventure, and my iPhone so I can Instagram and Facebook when I am bored.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I think I can relate most to Parvati Shallow because she is beautiful and manipulative just like me. She has the ability to make everyone love her but also fear her. That power and confidence is a good quality to have for this show. I can also relate to Natalie Tenerelli because she was a young contestant and also a dancer.
Reason for Being on Survivor: The chance to experience a once in a lifetime journey and to show everyone that just because I have huge boobs and a pretty face does not mean I am dumb, it just means I look better when I am winning.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: I have great leadership skills when working in a group. I also am quite handy when it comes to building things such as shelter. I am the daughter of a contractor, so he taught me well.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I could be the final Survivor because when I want something I get it. I do whatever it takes to get it. I am ambitious and very adaptive. I am never afraid to manipulate and back stab people when it puts me ahead. These qualities will be essential to me being the final Survivor.
Do You Consider Yourself a Brain, a Beauty or a Brawn? I consider myself all three but if I have to pick, I would pick Beauty. Who wouldn't want to be beautiful? When you are beautiful you get what you want and I like getting what I want.
Who Do You Think Has the Best Chance in the Game of Survivor: Brains, Beauty or Brawn? Most people would assume the Brain and Brawn would have the best chance but I think Beauty actually has the best chance. Usually if you are beautiful you have a great body which is "brawn." Also, most people who are beautiful have a stereotype of being dumb. Beauties could fly under the radar as a non-threat because they are stereotypically dumb and weak. I'm rooting for the beauties.
On Day 1, Morgan arrived with the rest of the Solana tribe via boat, an entrance reflective of the supposed beauty that the tribe possessed. During the First Impressions twist, Morgan was designated as the tribe's weakest link by LJ McKanas, and sent to her tribe's camp ahead of her tribe-mates. When faced with a decision, instead of choosing to supply her tribe with extra rice, Morgan opted to take a clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol, lying to her tribemates that she had actually chosen to benefit the tribe by choosing the tribe's pots, pans, and boat. When Solana lost their first Immunity Challenge, Morgan's tribe mates feared that she had in fact found the idol, resulting in a split vote between her and her number one ally Brice Johnston. Morgan survived the vote when Brice was voted out, but she was now left without an alliance.
On Day 12, Morgan found herself on the new Aparri tribe, with her old tribemates Jeremiah Wood and Alexis Maxwell. Morgan easily made it to the merge, where she found herself in the minority after Kass McQuillen turned on the new Aparri tribe, due to her contempt for Sarah Lacina leading to Sarah being voted out. This led to a conflict between Morgan and Kass, with Morgan claiming Kass was jealous of her being the cuter woman. When Morgan's vanity wasn't on display, she slept in the shelter all day, leading to the majority alliance becoming annoyed with her and deciding to vote her out at the next Tribal Council in a 6-4 vote.
