Ernie Baatma was a contestant in Survivor: Black Islands.


Ernie is dedicated to his job as a tour guide. He loves his job, but it does not pay well. He sought this adventure because he really connects with nature, sadly, he doesn't connect with people the same way. Can Ernie overcome his shyness and work well with others and win this game?

Ernie did not overcome his obstacle of being shy. He was able to befriend Logan and Thorton before Iossisbi's first tribal council, but the women targeted him and he was eliminated.
