Drew Garths is a contestant in Survivor: Madagascar.


An interrogation specialist for the United States Army, Drew is very good at human manipulation. His lies go undetected and he can extract important information easily. He can be hot-headed, but he hides it well as much as his discrimination. Drew is also very easy going and humorous. He hates those who judge to quickly, but it takes him awhile to earn trust.

Survivor: Madagascar

Drew started the game by building an early alliance with Jessica Tenderlove. Another government employee, the two agreed to watch each others backs.

On Day 11, Jessica tightened their trust by showing Drew she had found the hidden immunity idol.

On Day 13 when the tribes were switched, Drew was sent to Fossa with Jasmain and Rikku. He tried to keep the three of them together. He even went as far as practicing starting fires with Jasmain in case of a tie. Unfortunatly, Rikku botched the vote and Jasmain was eliminated.

Drew and Jessica's alliance is a strong one. All the way until Day 25, when Jessica states she wants Nicholas out. Drew realizes that Jessica is making all the calls. Drew wants to be in control of some of the moves.

Jessica has been my ally from the start. But it seems like she is more in charge of making decisions. This isn't good. If she is to bring me to the end and have more of an impact on the game, I won't get recognized for squat. I am going to have to make a big move soon.


Drew hastily aligns with Nicholas, he wants to take him to the end as a goat, and Nicholas agrees to go with Drew. But after Drew wins a reward and is absent from camp, Nicholas tells Jessica all of what Drew said in front of the rest at camp. Jessica doesn't believe Nicholas, but some doubt in Drew is put into her.

After winning immunity on Day 27, Nicholas tells Drew that Jessica is the next to go. Drew is shocked that she is to be eliminated so soon, even before Elsa and Julian. Secretly, Nicholas and Carly are testing Drew's trust. In the end, Drew reverts to his original alliance with Jessica, and they split the vote between Julian and Elsa. Neither get votes from anyone else, and Nicholas is eliminated.

On Day 28, Drew comes clean to Jessica and tells her that in a weak moment of his, he did align with Nichoals because he thought she was too controlling and he wanted a say. She accepted his apology and heard what he had to say. And on Day 29, Drew got into a verbal spat with Corey and Bobby for not telling them that they were voting for Nicholas.

After Julian wins immunity on Day 30, Jessica and Drew try to make Elsa feel safe. They want her to not play her idol and vote her out. Jessica trys to point out the flaws in Drew's plan, but Drew wont listen. His plan goes wrong when Elsa plays her idol, making her immune and Jessica plays hers out of fear of getting everyone else's votes. Drew gets votes from Julian and Elsa because they just want to stay in the game and 1 from Carly in spite of Drew's failure to stick with the plan and get Nicholas eliminated three days prior.
