Survivor: Madagascar

Early in the game, Hanson bonded with Bella. The oldest 2 of Fossa, they were a likely alliance. They agreed to have each others backs on Day 4.

Unfortunatly, trouble began to boil on Day 7 when Fossa lost immunity partly because of Bella. Hanson tried to stick up for her but was verbally attacked by Nicholas. Later after Fossa lost the immunity challenge, Bella was again targeted for being weak. Hanson again tried to save her by telling some Kamila is just as weak. He tried to get Julian to side with him but Julian didn't and Hanson's ally was eliminated.

After the third tibal council, Kamila was upset about getting votes. Hanson called her pathetic and again was verbally challenged by Nicholas. On Day 12 when Kamila cost her tribe the immunity challenge Hanson politely tried to convince Nicholas the she was weak but he refused to agree. It didn't matter, on Day 12's tribal council, Kamila was eliminated.

Hanson was in a better position when his rival Nicholas was switched from the tribe on Day 13. He enjoyed Antonia tricking Rikku into ruining the vote that caused ex.Baobab's Jasmain's elimination.

After the tribes merged, Nicholas appeared to have switched sides and was now against not only Hanson but all former Fossa members. Antonia tried to get Carly on their side, but she wanted to be with Nicholas. Hanson ignored his alliances idol and decided not to play it at the 7th tribal council and he was eliminated 6-4. He was the last person to be eliminated and not be a part of the jury this season.
