Survivor Season 7: Where Are The Contestants Now?

Stranded in the Pearl Islands off the coast of Panama, sixteen castaways undertake a challenging journey in ‘Survivor’ to win the top prize. The contestants are marooned in an isolated location without amenities, food, and shelter. As they try to forage for basic necessities and overcome the inhabitable conditions of the wild, a number of dramatic situations follow. Released in 2003, season 7 of the reality television show features an equally enthralling group.

Sandra Diaz-Twine is Spending Time With Family Today

After taking away the top prize on ‘Survivor: Pearl Islands,’ Sandra soon returned to ‘Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,’ and ended up winning a second time. As the first two-time winner in the show’s history, Sandra has become a household name in ‘Survivor.’ She has also competed on other seasons of the show including, ‘Survivor: Game Changers,’ ‘Survivor: Winners at War,’ ‘Survivor: Island of the Idols,’ and ‘Australian Survivor: Blood v Water.’

At 71, Lillian continues to experience familial bliss with Lonnie, her husband of almost fifty years.

Jon Dalton is Podcasting and Selling T-Shirts Online

Jon invoked the ire of many after asking his friend Dan to lie and say his grandmother died during the family visits. Nevertheless, his cut-throat approach ultimately led him to the top until he asked to be voted out in order to be with his pregnant girlfriend. After his exit from the show, Jon appeared on ‘Fear Factor,’ ‘Reality Obsessed,’ and on the Tribal Council of ‘Survivor’ in 2004. The star co-hosts the ‘Survivor NSFW’ podcast along with fellow contestant Matt Bischoff. Apart from his stint in entertainment, Jon’s personal life has also been equally vivacious.

Nonetheless, the lifeguard and computer programmer continued to explore new avenues of success.

Osten Taylor is Progressing in Sales Now

While his physical acumen set him apart from the rest of the cast members, the Nashua-based equity trade manager couldn’t fit into camp life. The despondent conditions ultimately made him the first person to ever quit the show instead of getting voted out. The decision had irked host Jeff Probst initially, and he felt angry that a contestant would throw away the chance to appear on the show. However, after leaving the show, Osten confessed that he had to walk out due to a grotesque staph infection on his elbows and legs. Nevertheless, Osten’s journey continued even after leaving the island.
