24. Benjamin "Coach" Wade
As seen on: Survivor: Tocantins (2009); Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains (2010); Survivor: South Pacific (2011)
Coach has appeared in a total of three Survivor spinoffs in his time, and on both he managed to stand out as a pathological liar and one of the most ridiculous people we’ve ever seen on reality television. It’s not clear why he felt the need to tell everyone that he was the “dragon slayer,” in Survivor: Tocatins, amongst other lies that included insane tales from his “experiences” as a professional kayaker—just that he did, and he really seemed to believe it, too.
To his credit, Coach did eventually realize how ridiculous calling himself the “dragon slayer” sounded, and in Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, he decided he didn’t want anyone to call him that anymore. This breakthrough was short-lived, though: When he returned for Survivor: South Pacific, he was the “zen slayer,” whatever that means. Desperate for attention, much? At this rate, next he’ll be returning as the “vampire slayer.”
