Occupation: Professional gamer and Survivor: Gabon contestant
Known for: Surviving and then some. Nine weeks into the season, Kenny has–despite being a 98 lb. weakling and an indoor cat who plays video games for a living–not only survived the game but become the most powerful person in it. Using clever mindfuckery, the Vietnamese-American 23 year-old has picked off his Alpha Male competitors one after the other, men who were physically stronger and conventionally better-looking, proving that not all playas have to have washboard abs like Yul Kwon. Jeff Probst, who’s seen kingpins come and go on the show in his 17 seasons hosting, even recently compared Kenny’s coming of age to “watching great Shakespeare” (um, Jeff Probst watches Shakespeare?). Let’s just hope that Kenny’s reign out in the bush is more Henry VIII than Richard III.
