John Cochran Survivor South Pacific

Believing that Jeff Probst calls his favorite contestants by their last names, “superfan” John insisted he should follow suit. Jeff accepted the proposition and challenged him to live up to it. Despite knowing game theories, Cochran found himself unable to use them and came across as socially awkward and physically unable.

After Savaii lost the inaugural Immunity Challenge, Ozzy Lusth perceived him as the weakest member of the tribe but was saved when tribemate Semhar Tadesse was voted out for her poor performance at the Immunity Challenge.

He would continue to find himself on the outs of the tribe but formed a close friendship with Savaii tribemate Dawn Meehan. Cochran also began becoming more of a provider for Savaii, despite Savaii’s de facto leader Ozzy already doing most of the food collecting.

At their next Tribal Council visit, Cochran was once again spared over the much weaker Mark “Papa Bear” Caruso, who was blamed for the loss despite Cochran being in charge of rope management during the Immunity Challenge. However, Cochran received a vote from Jim Rice, who was wary of the possibility of Mark really having a Hidden Immunity Idol.

His’s odds in the tribe would soon increase after Jim recruited him to help blindside Elyse Umemoto, Ozzy’s closest ally, after losing the Day 15 Immunity Challenge. The tribe lost the Immunity Challenge on Day 17, and the tribe as a whole told Cochran he was leaving, and that if he beat Christine Shields Markoski, he would come back into the game as a hero.
