Before the season finale of Survivor: Kaoh Rong, let's examine the Final 4 castaways' résumés.

Michele Fitzgerald, Cydney Gillon, Aubry Bracco, and Tai Trang are Final 4 Survivor: Kaoh Rong castaways, which means they've made it 35 days in one of the toughest mental and physical games of their lives, having outwitted, outplayed, and outlasted 14 of their fellow players to get there.

There's no doubt these four fierce competitors have earned their spot in the season finale episode by competing in cut-throat challenges, possessing a strong social game, and making big moves where they counted most in the game.


Here's a look back at their individual Survivor: Kaoh Rong résumés, broken down by each person's background, accomplishments, and skills.

To see who walks away with the title of Sole Survivor and the $1-million prize, watch the season finale of Survivor: Kaoh Rong on Wednesday, May 18 at 8/7c, followed by the one-hour Live Reunion Special.

 
Michele Fitzgerald

Michele Fitzgerald

Background: 24-year-old bartender who was originally a member of the Beauty Tribe

Accomplishments: Most will say Michele kept an extremely low profile and flew under the radar during the first half of Survivor: Kaoh Rong, but that doesn't mean her strategy should be downplayed by any means. With her approachable nature, Michele buddied up with this season's youngest castaway, Julia, and used her people skills to ensure quality time with other top players, which often kept her name out of Tribal talk.

Sure, she took a punch when she adopted responsibility for losing a tough Reward Challenge, but she made up for it when she later used her incredible memory and puzzle skills to spell out the word "immunity" at an Immunity Challenge.

More recently, the bright-eyed brunette confronted Tai when he put her on blast, but ended up befriending him to go further in the game. The bold move showed everyone that this Jersey girl was
not afraid to get her hands dirty if it means landing the title of Sole Survivor.

Skills: Loyal, extroverted, quiet game play
 
Cydney Gillon

Cydney Gillon

Background: 23-year-old body builder who was originally a member of the Brawn Tribe

Accomplishments: As the only Brawn member left this season, Cydney powered through the most difficult of physical and emotional challenges to be the last of her tribe standing. Keys to her success include her ability to juggle multiple alliances, her capability to keep a relatively quiet social game, and hold her various relationships extremely close to her vest.

If anyone demonstrated unwavering confidence this season—and with good reason!—it was Cyd.


Skills: Smooth talker, alliance-juggler, agile 
Aubry Bracco

Aubry Bracco

Background: 29-year-old social media marketer who was originally a member of the Brains Tribe

Accomplishments: Though Aubry was often seen as one of the quieter castaways, this fan favorite was often the one behind the curtain, watching her plans develop into a seamless production. She orchestrated Liz's blindside back in Episode 3, kicked her ally, Peter, to the curb when she heard he was conspiring against her, and even battled it out against Jason in a frothy challenge that had them balancing ceramic pots.

When her closest allies this season, Neal and Joe, were both medically evacuated, Aubry took control of her own fate and ramped up her social game to get closer to Tai and the other women left in the running—and to think Aubry almost wanted to pull herself out of the game during the season premiere. Thank goodness she decided to stick it out, because Koah Rong wouldn't have been the same wild ride without her!

Skills: Tough competitor, well-spoken, top-notch social game
 
Tai Trang

Tai Trang

Background: 51-year-old gardener who was originally a member of the Beauty Tribe

Accomplishments: Undoubtedly one of Season 32's biggest breakout characters, Tai shined bright to his fellow castaways, thanks to his sweet nature, love for all living things, and heartfelt sincerity. From Day 1, he found connections with almost everyone—including Mark, the chicken—and was able to carefully straddle almost all sides of the larger group. 

As the game intensified, some of Tai's closet relationships struggled, like his bond with Jason and Scot; however, at the same time, he grew closer to Aubry and Cydney, which only seemed to help him last longer in the game. 


Skills: Friendly, empathetic, determined
