It seems as though a relationship built out of what I would call "enemy-ship" such as Sandra, Tony and Sarah or everyone's dream alliance of Rob and Parvati was to have much greater success in the early stages of this game than a relationship formed out of actual friendship.
In thirty-nine seasons of Survivor, there have been some amazing players. It is so incredibly hard to rank them as they all had to overcome a different set of circumstances and navigate through completely different seasons, twists and themes. But nonetheless, The Mastermind has attempted to compile a list of the fifty greatest players of all time.

Survivor has been around for a whopping thirty-seven seasons. In that time there has been every kind of winner you could imagine. Every single winner has its flaws, critics, and faults. But every winner also has its strengths, merits and influence on changing the game forever. Although it is never easy to rank players who played vastly different games, The Mastermind will now attempt to update their winner rankings for 2018 and rate the winners from worst to best - starting with the worst in 37th to the 19th best on this list. The list takes into consideration primarily how a player navigated their way through the season that they won, including their social game, strategic game, the difficulty of their win, how in-tune they were with the game, their final tribal council performance, how many votes they received to win and most importantly, how much control they had during the season from start to finish. This list is not a ranking on how good of a player each person is. For that see Top 50 Survivor Players of All Time. This instead is a list based on how well each winner navigated their way through their specific season.
