Peter Alois Baggenstos is a contestant from Survivor: Kaôh Rōng.

Earning the ire of his tribemates with his arrogant behavior at camp, Peter found himself in the minority quickly after Chan Loh took out his alliance member, Liz Markham. He sought to flip against his fellow Brains after the Tribe Switch sent him to the Gondol tribe, but failed to make the necessary social connections to get him to his goal. A final flip by Aubry Bracco sealed his fate, as the people he thought to be his loyal alliance members turned their backs against him in a blindside.
