1 of 12Jonny Fairplay, Survivor: Pearl Islands
Host Jeff Probst has called Fairplay "despicable," but you have to give him credit for his brains. In a pre-planned lie, Fairplay had a visiting friend tell him his (alive-and-well) grandmother had died. Jonny played it up, earning sympathy and weasling his way to the final three. We're sure he and grandma were planning to split the cash.
