I'm willing to do anything to get a laugh. Literally, if I need to recap horrible childhood stories, I will!

–Topher (outside the game)

Tophermcf, also known as Topher, is a contestant on Survivor: Turkey and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.

Though greatly respected by fellow contestants in his first season and becoming a threat to take the title, following Topher's return in Heroes vs. Villains, he received much hatred from fans and contestants alike due to his heavy inactivity and outlasting many great players.

Survivor: Turkey


Name(Age): Topher (29)
Tribe Designation: 
Current Residence: Toronto, Canada
Personal Claim Of Fame: I would put Meeting Jane Fonda pretty high on the list, but I think it would be moving from Alberta to Toronto with only 2 suitcases, and all my family back West. 
Inspiration In Life: My Mother and Father are pretty encouraging to Dream Big, Believe in oneself and know success can include failures
Hobbies: Big TV buff - Love Comedy & reality TV...that's pretty much 75% of my life
Pet Peeves: People who deal cards wrong, Oversharers & People can't engage in a debate
3 Words To Describe You: Funny, Sarcastic, Deliberate  
If you could have 3 things on an island what would they be and why?:
1)  An Encyclopedia (any volume) to read and entertain myself - with that much knowledge, once you make it through the book you can go back and it will seem fresh. 
2) A deck of Cards - There is so much versatility in them, including team bonding & strategizing with my alliance. 
3) Some sort of Blade (like a machete) - To help prepare, chop and hunt. (One can make a fire without flint!)
Survivor Contestant you are Most Like: Sophie Clarke. 
Reason for being on Survivor: I absolutely love this game for both the entertainment value and sociological representations and interactions it creates. As a Canadian, I will never have the opportunity to play, so this is the next best thing.
Why do you think will be Sole Survivor: "Burgers and Fries, Not Saving Lives" - Nothing that is done, said or happening is saving the world, with that mentality you can overcome any obstacle.

Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains

Name (Age): Topher (30)

Tribe: Yang

Hometown: Toronto, Canada

Current Residence: Canada

Personal Claim To Fame: I have a pretty cool Imdb Page

Inspiration in Life: My Father and Mother for teaching me to continue fighting despite all odds

Pet Peeves: slow walkers, hate for hate, dealing cards wrong, pesto

Previous Finishes: Currently Final Four in Turkey

Favorite Past Moment: I will have to reveal that in Final Tribal

Previous Survivor You Respect Most (Main or ORG): I would say anyone who stayed true to their alliance and fought for their tribe mates. I identify strongly with Sophie, but I am old school and never would discredit the amazing ground work Richard Hatch laid in Season 1. 

Previous Survivor You Respect Least (Main or ORG): Definitely anyone who survives on Idols. Hantz, Tony etc. It's not how you play the game, it's about manipulating people and relationships not riding on a hidden idol. 

As well as anyone who quit, as a Canadian who will never be able to play this infuriates me. 

Why Did You Come Back?: I have a big ego to feed!
