Survivor: The Sahara

On Day 1, Grimsley, along with the other nineteen castaways competed in an individual immunity challenge. He did not win. He was later chosen by Aleskan to be on Scorpio. He later voted for Aleskan as their leader. At the immunity challenge, he was one of the eight chariot pullers, his tribe won immunity.

After Day 3 and to Day 10, Grimsley was rarely seen or mentioned. He was mostly around the campsite looking for a nonexistent hidden immunity idol. He competed in some challenges, but sat out in the Day 7 reward challenge and Day 9 reward challenge. On Day 11, he competed in the immunity challenge, but he and Felicity were so far behind, they couldn't win. At tribal council, he voted for Jeremy, but everyone else voted him out leaving 9-1.
