Survivor: Winners at War will be featuring Parvati Shallow and her manipulatively flirty ways once again. The California native was just getting started on Cook Islands. She went on to up her game on Micronesia where she was crowned Sole Survivor and almost pulled off a repeat on Heroes vs Villains. Since participating in three seasons of Survivor in three years, Parvati has expanded her family. Now, the strategic femme fatale is going to try her luck again on Winners at War.
Survivor: Parvati Shallow Fights the Odds – Makes a Big Comeback
Throughout her first time around on Survivor: Cook Islands, the odds seemed stacked against Parvati Shallow. Despite aligning with strong groups and possessing an impressive social game, she finished in 6th place. But it seems like Parvati was only warming up. Because her next two attempts resulted in far better outcomes.
On Survivor: Micronesia, she quickly joined the Malakal Couples Alliance. Yet, when her tribe lost 3 Immunity Challenges in a row, she formed a Final 3 with Cirie Fields and her alliance member Amanda Fields to have the numbers. So, once the tribes merged, she founded an all-girls alliance called the Black Widow Brigade. They decimated the remaining men and Parvati, Amanda, and Cirie found themselves in the Final 3. Amanda won the Final Immunity Challenge and took Parvati with her. Where Parvati won the title of Sole Survivor in a 5-3 vote.
Next, Parvati returned as a villain for Survivor: Heroes vs Villains and found herself at the bottom of the totem pole. Despite this, she joined Russell Hantz’s alliance, who eventually gained control of the game. She and Russell, along with Sandra Diaz-Twine made it to the FTC. Where Sandra beat them in a 6-3-0 vote, Parvati being the runner up.
