After Survivor, I was driving across country and moving to San Francisco, going to get a job interning at an ad agency. And then they asked me to read for this movie.

Colleen Haskell

American Idol’ is sometimes lumped with reality shows and it has that element – folks-next-door battling it out in a contest. But instead of fighting leeches, bugs, parasites and each other, as on CBS’s ‘Survivor’ and other shows that imitate it, the ‘American Idol’ contestants, of course, sing.

Tom Shales

As a cancer survivor of a radical hysterectomy, there are complications that happen after the fact and your body changes and, going through those changes, you don’t feel sexy.

Bob Beckel

As you know, in the past several years, month after month, radio has increased its revenues – some of it even coming from Dot-Com advertisers. So, radio is a survivor.

Casey Kasem

Being a survivor doesn’t mean being strong – it’s telling people when you need a meal or a ride, company, whatever. It’s paying attention to heart wisdom, feelings, not living a role, but having a unique, authentic life, having something to contribute, finding time to love and laugh. All these things are qualities of survivors.

Bernie Siegel

Both of my grandmothers were diagnosed with breast cancer – one is a survivor and one passed away.

Jessica Simpson

Castaways’ was a play on what if a reality show like ‘Survivor’ was unknowingly set on an island inhabited by a sub-human race of creatures? Readers have often asked me to consider turning the short story into a full-length novel. So I did.

Brian Keene

Every show on television has a downward trend because there are so many more things to watch. You can only deal with what is the benchmark of a hit series and ‘Survivor’ clearly remains a hit series.

Mark Burnett

First of all, anybody who has lasted 30 and went through the 60’s is really a survivor.

Patti Smith

First season of ‘Survivor’ – Richard Hatch was fascinating.

For people who don’t know me, I practiced medicine in Casper, Wyoming for 25 years as an orthopedic surgeon, taking care of families in Wyoming. I’ve been chief of staff of the largest hospital in our state. My wife is a breast cancer survivor.

John Barrasso

Gay guys love women who are tough, who are survivors. They always call me a diva. And I am a survivor; I’ve pulled through everything and I’ve not become bitter about it.

Samantha Fox

Growing up, I heard a lot about strength. My dad – a Holocaust survivor – embodied it, though he would never say that about himself. Not only did he survive one of the most horrific events in history, but he never lost hope along the way, crediting acts of kindness with keeping him alive.

Daniel Lubetzky

Hi, I’m Bill. I’m a birth survivor.

Bill Maher

Hibakusha’ is an animated docu-drama that Choz Belen and I are directing, and it will take you through the earliest memories of a Hiroshima atomic bomb survivor named Kaz Suyeishi.

Steve Nguyen

Honestly, surviving in ‘Bigg Boss’ was a cakewalk as compared to staying in ‘Survivor,’ where we had to live in primitive-age conditions, even generating fire on our own.

Payal Rohatgi

I am a co-writer of ‘Survivor,’ so there’s publishing that I’ll receive for some of the records.

Mathew Knowles

I am a survivor and not a victim. Life isn’t perfect. When you get a knock, you have to get up, dust yourself down and get on with it.

Patsy Kensit

I am an eternal survivor.


I am not a victim. I am an angry survivor.

Nina Bawden

I am someone who always gets up again, even if there are setbacks. I have a survivor instinct. I’m not sure where it comes from, but probably from all the little things that make you into who you are.

Heidi Klum

I am that ‘everyman’ in that I have made every mistake you can make in your career and in your personal life. But I am a survivor.

Joe Piscopo

I am the daughter of Nigerian immigrants. My mother is a survivor of both polio and of the Igbo genocide during her country’s civil war in the late 1960s.

Uzo Aduba

I consider myself a survivor.

Robert Pires

I could have been in a house show the day before being flown in to do the Survivor Series. I’d do that pay-per-view, then fly out the next day to go do another house show. The pay-per-view just happened in the middle of a 30 or 40-day road tour. For us back then, the WWF talent, it was just another day of work, another day of being on the road.

The Ultimate Warrior

I decided to quit ‘Survivor: All-Stars’ in order to be closer to my mother, who ended up passing away from breast cancer seven days after I returned home.

I didn’t like the ‘Survivor’ shows because of the mean-spirited aspect, and women certainly were part of whatever conflict they would create.

Sharon Lawrence

I don’t consider myself a survivor; that’s someone who has gone through something terrible.

Geraldine Ferraro

I don’t like it to be compared to ‘Survivor.’ The idea of ‘Survivor’ is to kill each other off to win the prize. There’s no killing in Gilligan’s Island.

Sherwood Schwartz

I don’t look at her like she’s a bad girl. She just misunderstood sometime, she’s a little troubled, she’s a little dysfunctional. She’s a survivor.

I don’t miss a minute of ‘Survivor.’

Carrie Fisher

I feel good about the work I do on Survivor and am proud of my contribution.

Jeff Probst

I feel like a survivor from an age that people no longer understand. I want to try to explain what the 1930s – the golden age of Hollywood – was truly like. People forget that America was such a different place then, not yet the dominant force in the world.

Olivia De Havilland

I feel like I have a Ph.D. in life, I’m a survivor. I’ve not only survived, I’ve thrived.

Gennifer Flowers

I feel so blessed that I grew up in the age of the independent woman, the survivor. I had Destiny’s Child telling me I didn’t need a man to feel good about myself, and I want to carry on that message.


I get worried sometimes that people are saying ‘Why is she on television – is it because of Survivor?’ That people are saying, ‘She got here the easy way.’ But I have been working hard all these years, and I figured I needed to move forward and embrace it, respect it and perfect it. If I didn’t, then everybody would lose.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck

I got a lot of criticism for going back on ‘Survivor’ to play ‘Survivor: All Stars.’

Jenna Morasca

I grew up in a household with my mother, who was a Holocaust survivor. I very much understand the mentality that you cannot live in the past. You can’t spend your entire life, or even portions of it, looking back and dwelling on things that have already happened. You have to move forward.

Paul Heyman

I guess when you play ‘Survivor,’ almost everyone gets got.

I had always wanted to run my own show and focus solely on the writing, and that’s what ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ has been for me.

I had my first ‘Survivor Series’ in 1991 and I was fortunate enough to be an instrumental part of the shows I was on.

I have a different perspective on the world than the way I looked at the world when I was 20. I was kind of naive. I’m a cancer survivor, been working in this industry for a time, and older with more opinions, more experience.

Tom Green

I have a real survivor’s instinct.

Elizabeth Diller

I have always said about myself I am a survivor because I am.

Lee Tergesen

I have been a daughter, a bride, a mother, a divorcee, a widow, a single mother, a grandmother, a breadwinner, and, ultimately a survivor.

Lorrie Morgan

I have done a lot greater things than ‘Survivor.’ Going through SEAL training was much harder than ‘Survivor.’

Rudy Boesch

I have survivor skills. Some of that is superficial – what I present to people outwardly – but what makes people resilient is the ability to find humour and irony in situations that would otherwise overpower you.

Amy Tan

I have survivor’s curiosity, I guess.

George H. W. Bush

I have survivor’s remorse.

Maverick Carter

I haven’t talked much about being an ovarian cancer survivor because I don’t really want to define myself that way.

Kathy Bates

I left for Fiji 36 hours after we wrapped ‘Lucha Underground’ season 4. The producers of ‘Lucha Underground’ had to bend over backwards to get me wrapped out of the season to leave for ‘Survivor.’

John Morrison

I like ‘Bootylicious,’ ‘Survivor’ – my little granddaughter loves ‘Survivor.’

Aretha Franklin

I like myself being a survivor.

John Densmore

I look over and Mike’s not there, I hear the drums and know it isn’t Jeff. I guess there is some survivor’s guilt, but I’m happy to be here every day, still doing what I love most.

Steve Porcaro

I love my mother. She’s my first love. She has been through a lot and is a sole survivor.

Missy Elliott

I love my ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ cast. They are so funny and crazy, like a big dysfunctional family. It’s so much fun, and I love the issues that we talk about on that show. We deal with nuanced and controversial issues, and we do it in a way that’s funny. It’s comedy.

Teyonah Parris

I loved ‘Survivor Series’ as a kid. It’s one of our biggest pay-per-views, and I would love to be part of that, just for the bucket list!


I never thought of myself as a strong person until I wrote my first book, and people started to say, ‘You’re a survivor. You’re such a strong person.’ It never ever occurred to me.

Viv Albertine

I realize more and more I miss my ‘Survivor’ friends when I’m not around them.

Jenna Morasca

I really like binge-watching ‘Survivor.’ Watching week to week is exciting, but it’s difficult because I just want to see what happens.

John Morrison

I said ‘no’ to the ‘Born Survivor’ producer three times because I’ve never aspired to be a TV man.

Bear Grylls

I see myself as a survivor, and I’m not ashamed to say I’m a survivor. To me, survivor implies strength, implies that I have been through something and I made it out the other side.

Elizabeth Smart

I tend to be a little too old to feel guilty about watching anything. Like, I watch ‘Survivor’ every week.

Adam Scott

I think a Celebrity Survivor would be great.

Kathy Griffin

I think I’m a survivor. I could have suffered at least 100 professional deaths. I could come up with a list of the 100 times I’ve come closest to death, from having pneumonia as a child to car crashes.

Craig Venter

I think that when people see that a successful person who has suffered and is a survivor of mental illness, and is still very successful, I think it gives them a lot of strength.

Ananya Birla

I think the last reality show I watched was the first ‘Survivor’. That was a long time ago.

David Henrie

I thought I was signed up to be on ‘Heroes.’ It turns out I signed up to be on ‘Survivor.’

Adrian Pasdar

I took charge of the rice when I got on ‘Survivor.’ I said, ‘I’ll take charge of this and it’ll last till the end.’ And it did.

Rudy Boesch

I was a rust repairer. I was a rust repairer and full-time survivor. I survived all the major earthquakes, and the Titanic, and several air crash.

Keith Moon

I watched the first episode of ‘Survivor’ in the spring of 2000, thinking I would hate it. My natural inclination steers me toward the indoors not only in my actual life but also in the settings of the entertainment I read and watch.

Andrea Seigel

I went straight from filming the second season of ‘Survivor’s Remorse,’ and the creators over there were so supportive in letting me go early so I could film ‘Chi-Raq.’ And that was an amazing experience.

Teyonah Parris

I will talk to anybody about ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ because I’m proud of the show and the actors and directors and the entire crew. I just like doing the work, and I want people watching the show so we can make more.

Mike O’Malley

I would never call myself a cancer survivor because I think it devalues those who do not survive. There’s this whole mythology that people bravely battle their cancer and then they become survivors. Well, the ones who don’t survive may be just as brave, you know, just as courageous, wonderful people.

Barbara Ehrenreich

I’d still like to see ‘Survivor’ minus the planned show-biz parts. That would be the purest form of show business – I want to see someone so hungry that they eat somebody else’s foot.

Albert Brooks

If I walked back into the booth in the year 2025, I don’t think it would have changed much. I think baseball would be played and managed pretty much the same as it is today. It’s a great survivor.

Ernie Harwell

If I were on ‘Survivor,’ I might be the first off the island.

Dakin Matthews

If you stick around long enough, people start referring to you as a survivor. Suddenly I found myself on the receiving end of several prestigious awards.

John Daly

I’m a survivalist and a survivor.

Creed Bratton

I’m a survivor – a living example of what people can go through and survive.

I’m a survivor of life. I try to give the glory to God and appreciate what’s happening to me.

Mike Epps

I’m a survivor, at least that’s what everyone tells me.

I’m a survivor, man. I done had my ups and downs, but I’ve got get-back skills for real for real. I refuse to fall.


I’m a survivor. I’m a messenger.

Mona Eltahawy

I’m a survivor.

Raveena Tandon

I’m a two-time breast cancer survivor who lives with pre-existing conditions every day, and I know the uncertainty people face if they can’t get their medicine.

Lucy McBath

I’m actually a survivor of throat cancer so I’m very, very careful with my voice.

Michael Buffer

I’m not a victim – I’m a survivor of hunger, of hate, of different injustices that humans are facing today.

Clemantine Wamariya

I’m not just a runner. I’m not just a fast guy. I’m a fighter. I’m a survivor in life.

Justin Gatlin

I’m not playing ‘Survivor’ when someone I love has cancer.

Jenna Morasca

In antiquity, there were three regions in southern Europe: Greece, Rome, and Ilyria. Albanian is the only survivor of the Ilyrian languages. That is why it has always intrigued the great linguists of the past.

Ismail Kadare

In ‘Bigg Boss,’ there were so many things that I didn’t say and as a result, people thought I was a fake. I have not let it happen in ‘Survivor.’

Payal Rohatgi

In fact, if anything, I want to work harder because I want my kids to know that their mum is a director, a fighter, a survivor! They should know that I have made a name in this industry with no backing.

Kashmira Shah

In some ways ‘Survivor’ might have saved my life.

Jimmy Johnson

In Survivor and Finder’s Fee, it is about what you would do if you could get away with it. Survivor is about your own integrity and where you draw your own ethical and moral lines. There are no rules.

Jeff Probst

In the 1950s, I proposed the survivor method of determining the efficient sizes of enterprises, and worked on delivered price systems, vertical integration, and similar topics.

George Stigler

In the game of ‘Survivor,’ there is no time for regrets.

Jenna Morasca

It is hard being a football loather, a football unfan. I sometimes feel as lonely as the sole survivor in the last reel of a Zombie film, as, one by one, old friends reveal themselves, with their glassy stares and outstretched arms, to have succumbed to the lure.

Craig Brown

It is too soon to tell, but old, tired ‘Survivor’ last night beat ‘X Factor.’ We’re really proud of that. We’re anticipating a very strong season for CBS.

Leslie Moonves

It started back in 2002, when there was hardly any reality television. ‘Survivor’ had just started. My hope and dream was that ‘The Bachelor’ would last one or two nights on network TV, so I might meet somebody in the network and then I could get a real job.

Chris Harrison

It was very important to me when I was writing ‘Teaches of Peaches’ that I didn’t mention I was going through a bad breakup, or that I had had cancer. I didn’t want the album to be seen as being made by a survivor who’d broken away from this heteronormative relationship.


It wasn’t the first reality show, but ‘Survivor’ was the first big network hit, and I’m proud to have played a part in that history as the winner of season six, ‘Survivor: Amazon.’

Jenna Morasca

It would be a mind-boggling endeavor to try to identify each individual who claims to have been a survivor of victimization during this period of 24 years.

Jose Ramos-Horta

It’s great to be part of Survivor Series and getting the chance to do that. At the same time I want NXT to stand out on its own.

Pete Dunne

It’s not always about wins and losses, but winning two Survivor Series matches is something I will never forget.

Dolph Ziggler

I’ve always had the spirit of a survivor.


I’ve always had to be a survivor, kind of a loner.

Lorrie Morgan

I’ve been a fan of ‘Survivor’ for a long time. I even applied for a season. I made a really stupid audition tape. For some reason, I thought if I spoke in a German accent, whoever was casting would think it was funny and put me on the show. But that didn’t work!

John Morrison

I’ve been able to survive a lot of things, and I am especially interested in survivor stories.

Mariette Hartley

I’ve seen every second of ‘Survivor’ since it started.

Jimmy Johnson

Johnny ‘Fairplay’ Dalton manufactured a lie about his dear grandmother dying in order to win a challenge. This is one of the best villain moments of ‘Survivor’ ever! This lie was pre-planned, evil, and perfectly played out.

Jenna Morasca

Just following ‘Survivor’ over the years, sometimes if an individual is not a threat and he doesn’t rub anybody the wrong way and he can get into an alliance, he can hang out there for a while.

Jimmy Johnson

Lance Armstrong, the famous cyclist and more importantly, cancer survivor, has said ‘if you ever get a second chance for something, you’ve got to go all the way.’

Michael N. Castle

Last year, I was on Threat Matrix. We were on Thursday against Friends and Survivor; so this year it’s fun to know people are watching, and to know that all of your hard work is not sort of wasted.

James Denton

Let’s be honest: we all watch the show at home and play ‘armchair’ ‘Survivor,’ inserting our opinions, comments and yelling at the TV screen.

Jenna Morasca

Look, I’m a cancer survivor, all right? So I have great personal empathy for people who have pre-existing conditions and can’t get insurance.

Carly Fiorina

Maybe people will remember me for being a stylist, not a survivor.

Nadia Murad

Miami Beach – that’s where I grew up, in a middle-class Jewish family led by my maternal grandfather. Me, my great-grandmother – a Holocaust survivor, who was my roommate – my grandparents, my mom and her brother all shared a four-bedroom house.

Brett Ratner

More than a victim, I am a survivor of a dehumanization process.

Ingrid Betancourt

Most people have a kind of survivor bias about luck. When something wonderful happens – when preparation meets opportunity, with excellent results – we think: ‘How lucky!’ But we don’t usually acknowledge all the times when things just… fizzle out. All the times when preparation comes to nothing.

Marc Randolph

Most people I run into say, I haven’t missed an episode. Either you like Survivor or you don’t, but if you do, you’re a loyal viewer.

Jeff Probst

My childhood was bittersweet in many ways. We moved around a lot. By the time I was 10, I had travelled thousands of miles, often on my own. My parents were like my friends, so it felt like I didn’t really have parents at all. But in a crazy way that was very liberating. It forced me to be independent, maybe a leader, and certainly a survivor.

Nile Rodgers

My dad had this incredible kindness that oozed through every part of his body. He had the ability to look at life positively in spite of what he went through. He was a Holocaust survivor. When he was 15-1/2 years old, he was liberated from the Dachau Concentration Camp by American soldiers who risked a lot to save people they had never met.

Daniel Lubetzky

My family made it through Hurricane Sandy. We have water, power, and a roof, but the survivor’s guilt makes me want to hide. Sneak away from the brilliance of life. It shouts at me: ‘Don’t enjoy anything too much; people are suffering.’ I feel childlike somehow.

Alysia Reiner

My father was a Japanese prisoner of war, a survivor of the Thai-Burma Death Railway, built by a quarter of a million slave labourers in 1943. Between 100,000 and 200,000 died.

Richard Flanagan

My grandfather was a survivor of the Death March and his war buddies were among our neighbors. Where we lived in San Francisco, there was a cultural center where the Filipinos congregate to have parties and to celebrate Bataan Day.

Dante Basco

My grandmother raised five children during the Depression by herself. At 50, she threw her sewing machine into the back of a pickup truck and drove from North Dakota to California. She was a real survivor, so that’s my stock. That’s how I want my kids to be too.

Michelle Pfeiffer

My greatest personal Survivor Series moment was facing The Rock in 1998 and having Mr. McMahon turn on me. That set into motion one of the best series of matches I’ve ever had and some of the most important with The Rock. Not only did we have great matches, but then we became teamed up following the rivalry, so that was big.

Mick Foley

My kids – even though it’s a family business – they don’t even know what day or time ‘Survivor’ is even on. They just know it’s on TiVo.

Mark Burnett

My mom, she’s a breast cancer survivor and because of that I had started getting mammograms once a year, starting at age 30.

Kate Walsh

My mother is a survivor who’s had a lot of things happen in her life that have been very trying.

Michael C. Hall

My mother is a two-time cancer survivor.


My name is Rene Angelil, throat cancer survivor, artist manager, and I am also known as Celine Dion’s husband.

Rene Angelil

My novella, ‘The Lucky One,’ is inspired in part by my dad and also by a Holocaust survivor I interviewed for the Steven Spielberg Survivors of the Shoah Foundation.

Jenna Blum

My real mother is a survivor, very strong and respected by the people who know her, but our relationship is not easy – but then, it was never going to be.

Lemn Sissay

Of all the programs, I watch sporting events live and I watch ‘Survivor’ live. Everything else I TiVo.

Jimmy Johnson

Oh, I’m a survivor. My whole life has been surviving.

Eddie Bracken

On my season of ‘Survivor,’ the tribes were split: a tribe of men versus a tribe of women. Even though the women kicked the men’s butts at the first two challenges, we were a hot mess at camp.

Jenna Morasca

One of the biggest things that hurt me during ‘Survivor’ was I found out girls can run faster than I can. That really burned me up.

Rudy Boesch

Privacy is so sacred, and any time a victim is returned, a survivor is found and rescued, privacy is one of the greatest gifts we can give them because if they decide to share, that’s up to them, and they will come forward.

Elizabeth Smart

Roose is a very cold, pragmatic guy, and he’s a survivor. He makes choices based on that, and friendship goes out the window.

Michael McElhatton

Scars are a truly beautiful thing. Yes, they can be a little ugly on the outside, but scars show that you’re a survivor, that you made it through something, and not only did you make it through, but now you’re stronger and wiser and more educated because of that tough time that you went through.

Kyle Carpenter

Shooting in Los Angeles is always pleasant and comfortable. Shooting in New York is like being on ‘Survivor.’

Bruce Eric Kaplan

Some things tend to parody themselves, and we don’t need to do it very much. ‘Survivor’ is like that.

Will Sasso

Sometimes being a survivor is the greatest compliment you can get in Hollywood.

Dean Jones

Sometimes I feel like I’m a contestant in a reality show that probably would be called The Apprentice Survivor Millionaire.

Bob Iger

Stephen’s the great survivor, isn’t he? He just goes on and on.

Jane Hawking

Survivor has been such a hit, and out of that have come so many interesting stories from people that we don’t see on the big screen. We have helped make them incredible celebrities.

Mary Hart

Survivor’ is a game that’s designed to be played with strangers, people with varied backgrounds from all parts of the country. The greatest part is that you can go into the game as anyone you want, hold any job you desire, and portray any personality you can think of.

Jenna Morasca

Survivor is like rock ‘n’ roll – you can do what you want.

Jeff Probst

Survivor’ is one of CBS’s signature series and symbol of enduring quality and entertainment on prime time television.

Nina Tassler

Survivor Series is all about teamwork.

Bianca Belair

Survivor Series’ is one of my favorite pay-per-views because I’m Smackdown strong: I bleed blue. I’ve been my most successful since being on SmackDown.


Survivor’ was not fixed. There’s no way to fix ‘Survivor.’

Rudy Boesch

Survivor’ wouldn’t have happened had I not gone out there and helped CBS to sell sponsors to finance the first one. Part of my thinking on ‘Survivor’ was that it should have rewards that are corporate brands. A Big Mac, one thimble-full of Coca-Cola.

Mark Burnett

Taxicab Confessions’ always cracks me up. And if you are in the mood for a good game show, I like ‘Survivor’ because it’s well made.

R. J. Cutler

That’s what defines ‘Survivor’: it’s the ultimate test of who you are.

John Morrison

The band I was in, Soul Survivor, moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and tried real hard for two years.

Randy Meisner

The best life in the world. ‘Survivor’ was nothing compared to what I did, and it’s just that way.

Rudy Boesch

The difference between being a victim and a survivor is often a low level of situational awareness. You can’t be a super-spy, watchful and paranoid every day. But I am more watchful than the average American.

Barry Eisler

The feat of surviving is directly related to the capacity of the survivor.

Claire Cameron

The Holocaust survivor who knows Auschwitz through the experience of suffering observes it all from the perspective assigned to him. He keeps silent or gives interviews to the Spielberg Foundation, he accepts the compensation payments promised him after a fifty-year delay, or, if he is prominent, he makes a speech in the Swedish Academy.

Imre Kertesz

The Lucky One’ features a young concentration camp survivor named Peter Rashkin – who’s about the age my dad was when he started at CBS – working at the Oyster Bar, trying to acclimate to his new country and outrun the memories of the daily he left behind.

Jenna Blum

The rewards of the wild and the rewards of the survivor go to those who can dig deep, and, ultimately, to the guy who can stay alive.

Bear Grylls

The soldiers that didn’t come back were the heroes. It’s a roll of the dice. If a bullet has your name on it, you’re a hero. If you hear a bullet go by, you’re a survivor.

Bob Feller

The ‘Survivor’ community is very tight. I mean very tight.

Jenna Morasca

The word survivor suggests someone who has emerged alive from a plane crash or a natural disaster. But the word can also refer to the loved ones of murder victims, and this was the sense in which it was used at a four-day conference in early June at Boston College.

Godfried Danneels

There’s a book that I read, really a great book – it’s called ‘Lone Survivor’ and I think they’re trying to make it into a movie. I would love to play Marcus Luttrell, who was the author and the ‘lone survivor.’ He’s a national hero; he’s very courageous and heroic in insurmountable danger, so it’s something I’d love to explore.

Jared Padalecki

This is a job and Survivor is a game show. So, this is something to take seriously and work really hard at.

Colleen Haskell

This is a physical thing that is fixable. I know, I’m a survivor. Believe me, there was no way I thought I could survive. There are answers out there that need to be found.

Marie Osmond

To be honest, if it wasn’t for my daughter, I don’t think I would have gotten out of the situation that I was in before ‘Idol’ because I am a domestic violence survivor.

La’Porsha Renae

To not only be a cancer survivor, but to return to the sport of boxing, because, I mean, this is not basketball, this is not baseball, this is not a sport you play. This is a sport where you can die in the ring. So it says a lot to me to come back and be a world champion in that aspect.

Daniel Jacobs

Typically, only about 2 percent of the American populace tunes in to PBS’s ‘Nova’ series – the most successful science show on the tube. ‘Survivor’ and ‘X Factor’ get twice the ratings.

Seth Shostak

We dominated Survivor – there is no way we would not dominate that, too. I can see it already, us making deals with people. That’s the best part, and with the Race, it would be even more fun because I’ve got a lot of tricks up my sleeve.

Rob Mariano

We have named our kids Ryan and Krishank. Well, Ryan is also called as Sultan as he is a survivor and had a long struggle with life.

Kashmira Shah

We have stay-in date nights where we make a plan to watch certain TV shows together. ‘Survivor,’ for example, is our favorite show. And I make a healthy dinner and we sit down and it’s our date. I love it.

Alison Sweeney

We think wireless is going to grow tremendously. Do I think people are going to watch an episode of ‘Survivor’ on a 2-inch television set? I doubt it. But I do think somebody’s going to go to a grocery store in the middle of a football game and watch that game.

Leslie Moonves

We watch a lot of Discovery Channel, shows like ‘The Biggest Loser’ and even ‘Amazing Race.’ You learn a lot about the world, it’s fun and nobody’s interested in beating anybody down. And then the opposite: I’m a huge fan of ‘Survivor.’

Alison Sweeney

What does justice look like for a survivor? It’ll mean different things to different communities.

Tarana Burke

What ‘Survivor’ is really about is the inescapability of your being yourself, even when you have told yourself you can be someone different for 30 days.

Andrea Seigel

When I look in the mirror, I also see a mother and a wife and someone I am proud to be. I see an advocate. I see a survivor.

Elizabeth Smart

When I played ‘Survivor’, I sat back many times and marveled that no one had gotten into a real physical altercation. With all the backbiting, lies, and lack of food, a fight didn’t sound far off base, considering the strained and fragile emotions.

Jenna Morasca

When I was growing up, Brandy was TV star, reality star, a pop star, a Cover girl, Grammy winner, had her own Brandy doll, and was the first African American to play Disney princess Cinderella. Most importantly, she is a survivor. Many only judge and remember a person’s most recent failure.

Niecy Nash

When I was young I was listening to the Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child. I was singing ‘Independent Woman’ and ‘Survivor,’ and it was all about Girl Power and being with your friends. I don’t think I was singing, ‘Don’t cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?’

Kate Nash

When Oscar Niemeyer died on December 5, 2012, ten days before his 105th birthday, he was universally regarded as the very last of the twentieth century’s major architectural masters, an astonishing survivor whose most famous accomplishment, Brasilia, was the climactic episode of utopian High Modern urbanism.

Martin Filler

When they picked the people for ‘Survivor,’ they wanted 15 fouled-up people and one normal person. I was the normal person, in my opinion. I’d have bet a million bucks I was gonna win.

Rudy Boesch

When they were working on the movie ‘Lone Survivor,’ all I cared about was that it was done right to honor all of the guys.

Marcus Luttrell

When you are playing ‘Survivor’, getting a shelter up immediately is the most important thing.

Jenna Morasca

Why more reality-based TV? You’d think that after the first ‘Survivor’ it would have gone away, but it hasn’t. The public demands it because they get all caught up in the personal stories and want to see more and more. Every new ‘Survivor’ is going to show you more.

Montel Williams

With ‘Survivor’ – I didn’t get any sleep, there was no food, we had to boil our water… plus, it was physically taxing during the day. That’s what made it more difficult than three-a-day practices.

Jimmy Johnson

Yes, ‘Black Girl/White Girl’ might be described as a ‘coming-of-age’ novel, at least for the survivor Genna. It is also intended as a comment on race relations in America more generally: we are ‘roommates’ with one another, but how well do we know one another?

Joyce Carol Oates

Yes, I’ve been very preoccupied with the survivor all through my work.

Robert Jay Lifton

You can be a victim of cancer, or a survivor of cancer. It’s a mindset.

Dave Pelzer

You know, I suffer kind of from survivor’s guilt. It’s like you suffer from success because you feel like – why me? Why am I so special? What makes me so different from the next man and why am I able to achieve these things that this person can’t? Prayer is the only thing that helps me get through it.


You know, one race will not be a survivor if the other one dies, and that’s something that we should think about.

Alice Walker

You look at ‘Survivor’s Remorse.’ Or ‘Blackish.’ Or Issa Rae’s brilliant, funny ‘Insecure,’ which started out on YouTube but is now on HBO. And you see multifaceted representations of the African-American experience. It’s insanely exciting.

Teyonah Parris

You recognize a survivor when you see one. You recognize a fighter when you see one.

Elizabeth Edwards

You see the images that the public is demanding. Why more reality-based TV? You’d think that after the first Survivor it would have gone away, but it hasn’t. The public demands it because they get all caught up in the personal stories, and want to see more and more.

Montel Williams

You work with stand-up comedians or you work with somebody in theater, you work with somebody from ‘Star Search’ or ‘Survivor’ or a kid, it constantly changes how you play with people.

Steve Zahn
