Patrick "Pat" Cusack is a contestant on Survivor: David vs. Goliath.

A key figure on the David tribe, Pat took the reins on building the shelter. Despite his hard work, many of his tribemates found him to be bossy and overbearing. After the first Immunity Challenge of the season, he was medically evacuated from the game due to a freak accident on the tribe's boat escort back to camp.

Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? My mental, physical, and emotional skills are unmatched. My dedication and determination are my strongest assets.[2]


Because of his upbringing and background, Pat was a member of the David tribe. Upon arriving to camp, Pat led his tribe in building their shelter due to his experience in construction. However, he also quickly began to frustrate several of his tribemates due to his boisterous and apparently bossy nature. Nonetheless, he was seen as an asset due to his skill-set.

After the David tribe lost the first Immunity Challenge on Day 3, Pat sustained a back injury on the boat ride back to camp. After examination by the Medical Team, it was deemed that Pat's injury was too severe for him to continue and he was medically evacuated to undergo medical supervision.

After being treated for his injuries, he made a full recovery.
