CHRIS' SURVIVOR HIGHLIGHT:
Remaining the last man standing against a 6 member all-female alliance, Chris found an opening as he aligned with dissenting female members Twila, Scout, and Eliza. This resulted in one of Survivor's boldest tribal council blindsides as, a then confident, Leann Slaby was shocked and booted.
(NOTE: Chris' sudden alliance with the 3 women carried him all the way to the Final 4, all the way to the Final 2 in which he won under Survivor history's greatest comebacks.)

In Part Two of this opening ceremony, a live pig was sacrificed right before the eyes of the Survivors, using a primitive Vanuatu pig hammer. After this happened, the men smeared the pig's blood over their faces in ceremony. Moments later, the privileged men were given te chance to climb up a greased wooden pole to retrieve a spirit stone, told to ward bad spirits away from those who owned it. Brady Finta was chosen and in one quick attempt, won it for the mens Lopevi Tribe. Eerily, right after he touched it, the rain began to pour.
EARTHSHAKE! While some of the Survivors were taking part in their daily confessionals, a Survivor first occurred: Survivor's first earthquake. Luckily, no injuries were suffered amongst the Survivors.
Dreaded Balance Beam. In the season's first immunity challenge, the course consisted of puzzles, fire building, and the dreaded balance beam. Important to note, in Survivor: Amazon, the men failed to win the challenge due to the balance beam part; and it was the same fate that Lopevi would face. The Lopevi men, had a slight advantage over Yasur until it came to Chris Daugherty, who made many failed attempts to cross the narrow balance beam. Like Jaburu, in the Amazon, the Yasur women pulled out the victory,
However, regardless of how much he messed up in that challenge, Chris ultimately proved himself to become the winner of the Survivor: Vanuatu season.
Island Buddy. As a result of another Yasur reward win, the tribe received a native man named Da. As small as this reward may seem, Da showed the Yasur tribe efficient ways to survive, from what to and what not to eat to how to prepare meals.
"I Swear On..." In this season's most debated topic, the question arose: To get ahead further, is it ethical to swear on a family member's life? Twila Tanner took the heat for this as she swore on her son's life to Leann and Ami. Turns up, Twila didn't hold her end of the bargain, when she banded together with Scout, Chris, and Eliza to blindside Leann. Up until the Finale, this false swear would be held against her, which many believe is why she didn't win in the end.
Jeff Meets Julie. It is in Survivor's ninth season that host Jeff Probst meets the eventual love of his life, Julie Berry. From then on, in all following seasons, Jeff is always escorting Julie down the red carpet of each Survivor Finale.
