Migueldegouveia, also known as "Miguel", is the winner of Survivor: Similan Islands.

Regarded for his strong but subtle strategic game. Miguel was able to silently manipulate his way to the end of his season. Due to him being up against two almost universally disliked players and for making a big move at the Final 5 in taking out Red over Katie, he was able to pull out the win and become the Sole Survivor of the Similan Islands.


Name (Age): Miguel (21)
Tribe Designation: Payang
Current Residence: Valencia, Venezuela
Personal Claim Of Fame: Being in the Top 3 of best students in telecommunications engineering at my college despite being lazy as fuck XD
Hobbies: Watching too many tv shows, going jogging and reading
Pet Peeves: People who suffer from confirmation bias, people that spits near other people and arrogant people
3 Words To Describe You: Assertive, trustworthy and upfront
If you could have 3 things on an island what would they be and why?: A cake because you can never go wrong with that. An album with pictures and notes from my family and friends for when I'm in need of a good laugh or missing them. I would also have a book with all the lyrics to over 500 songs, if I can't have an iPod, at least I want to be able to remember the lyrics correctly when I'm annoying my tribemates with my singing.
Survivor Contestant you are Most Like: I think maybe Todd but with a poor social game XD
Reason for being on Survivor: I love the game and I've always wanted to play :D
Why do you think will be Sole Survivor: I'll tell you later ;)
