Chris DaughertyAge: 34
Occupation: Highway construction worker
Hometown: South Vienna, Ohio
Status: Engaged to Lorie
Strategy so far: Let the women bicker and hope that they forget he's still around.
Pivotal move: His slip on the balance beam resulted in the men's loss in the first immunity challenge, yet he made it through tribal council unscathed thanks to his alliance with the older men.
In his words: "I don't want to be somebody that goes out and provides while somebody else is sitting back and reaping the benefits of it."
What the Jurors Say
Leann Slaby: "He hustles and is not a slacker – and that is something that shouldn't seem important, but it is. I think he's got a lot going for him."
Lea 'Sarge' Masters: "He's able to sit back and play people against each other, so his strength right now is a mind game."
Chad Crittenden: "He sandbags! There's another subtlety in his game."
Slaby: "Scout was one of the founders of the 'let's do this all-women thing,' and if she wants to keep that intact, maybe he's in trouble."
How Host Jeff Probst Sees It
"Chris has done a great job in letting the women duke it out while he continues to get wood. He is rough and rural and the equivalent of Twila – really scrappy. He put everybody at ease."
