The survival aspect of the game is what the Personal Trainer from Sacramento, California, Daniel Marvin looks forward to. At the prime of his life, Daniel wants to test what he made of with the Caucasus Mountains, but he also wishes to make genuine frienships with his team while at the same time, seeking the million dollar prize.
Placed on the Alazani tribe, Daniel fared well the first couple days. He helped Sebastian Hibbard and Derek Phu build the shelter which was completed by the second day, but unfortunately, his tribe went on to lose the first Immunity Challenge. He went on to vote for the tribe's weakest member, Stan Bailey.
On Day 5, after tribe member Amy Corazon considered quitting the game due to the harsh weather conditions, Daniel was able to talk her out of it and then revealed that she was like a little sister to him. Daniel's tribe then went on to win the next Immunity Challenge. On Day 7, Daniel bonded with tribemates Derek, Amy, and Mary-Jean Pettie as they told stories. Soon after, they decided to form a voting alliance and decided in including Sebastian. After he and Derek tried to have their tribe leader join, an unsure answer left Daniel worried. But it did not matter as their tribe won the next Immunity Challenge keeping them safe for a couple more days.
Despite the victory, it did not keep Daniel and Derek from attempting to have Sebastian join the alliance. Daniel's tribe later won their first reward on Day 11 and took a trip to a swimming hole. After returning from the reward, Daniel became irritated upon seeing Van Stevenson's alliance just sunbathing as the rest of the tribe resumed their daily camp chores. With losing the next Immunity Challenge, Daniel's alliance targeted Lauren Faas as he considered her the laziest of the tribe and tried to get Sebastian to vote for her. However, his attempts were fruitless, as Van managed to convince the tribe leader that the tribe needed to stay strong, and Daniel's alliance member, Mary-Jean, was voted off. The next day, Sebastian, feeling guilty about voting out his friend, Mary-Jean, decided to finally join Daniel's alliance. After coming back from the challenge, in which Daniel was able to win immunity for himself, the four decided that they needed to get someone from the other alliance to switch so that a deadlocked tie doesn't happen. Sebastian tries to talk to Van, but fails at first, but at Tribal Council, Van betrayed his girls and voted with Daniel's alliance to get rid of Phoebe Noyola.
