Radfiddler, also known as "Linus", is the winner of Survivor: Tikal.

Playing extremely under the radar in the beginning, Linus managed to keep himself in the majority all throughout the tribal phases of the game and landed him a spot at the merge. When things started to fall apart and his alliance kept getting picked off, his social game kept him from not receiving any votes throughout the merge despite being in the minority. Ultimately winning challenges and remaining likable helped him get to the end with two people who were deemed as goats, and his strong social game managed to win over the jury awarding him the title of Sole Survivor and giving him the record for closest to a perfect game on the ORG with an 8-1 vote to win with 0 votes cast against him all game.
