Gaby Moreno is a contestant from Survivor: Santa Cruz Islands.


Name (Age): Gaby Moreno (31)
Tribe Designation: Fatutaka
Current Residence: Los Angeles, CA
Occupation: Musician
Personal Claim to Fame: The fact that my music career has taken off the way it has. I love doing what I do, and I'm happy that others enjoy my work also.
Inspiration in Life: The bands that influenced me to be the singer that I am today.
Hobbies: Playing my guitar and turning experiences and ideas into music.
Pet Peeves: People who lack creativity. The mind is a terrible thing to waste.
3 Words to Describe You: Expressive, Creative, and Happy
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? My guitar to play out the moments, my journal to write out the moments, and my camera to capture the moments.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I loved Semhar from South Pacific. She may not have made it far in the game, but I was able to relate to her very closely.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: Just to try something different.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I'm very good with people, but I think I'm going to shock some people with my outdoor skills too.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: While I'm good with people, I'm someone they may not expect to last thirty-nine days. I want to use this to my advantage and still have my tribe unaware of what I am doing.

Survivor: Santa Cruz Islands

Gaby was one of the eight people selected to be on the Fatutaka tribe, which eventually had returning player Andrew Savage join them as well. At the first immunity challenge, Gaby struggled in the puzzle, her designated area in the challenge. However, she was able to avoid being targeted after the distanced Olivia Ellis and the stubborn Roger Parsons became the two primary targets for the first vote. After Olivia and Roger were eliminated in back-to-back Tribal Councils, Gaby emerged from her under-the-radar play to being a crucial vote after being recruited by Savage and Suzanne Drolet to be in a majority alliance. She was hesitant to join this alliance as she thought she was being viewed as a number and not a person. After Fatutaka lost yet another immunity challenge, Gaby and Alvin Drew Jr., who was also recruited to join the alliance, discussed their voting plans. The two, along with Andrew Green and Jordan Owens, agreed to turn the tables on the elder members of the tribe, starting with Suzanne. As the game continued on, Gaby continued to remain quiet and cautious in her gameplay, which made the other three in the newfound majority alliance question whether she was trustworthy enough to keep around over obvious outsider Chase Ingraham. After the four stuck together and voted out Chase, the tribes were jumbled up and Gaby, along with Alvin, was placed on the Fatutaka tribe once more; this time, outnumbered by former Temotu members 4-2. Gaby was spared when the new Fatutaka tribe lost the immunity challenge following the switch and targeted the more threatening Alvin first but when they lost the next immunity challenge, she had nowhere left to hide and was voted out unanimously. Gaby voted for Andrew at the end to be the Sole Survivor.
