Survivor: The Beginning

Helga wanted to play like Richard Hatch. At Sarawak, she refused to work. When Violet asked her to help, she denied. While everyone else was working, she told everyone to gather around as she discussed survival. Everyone else found her really annoying. She managed to survive after winning several Immunity challenges. Her laziness angered her tribemates, especially Jane. She lied around almost all the time, yet criticized the others for not working hard enough. Sarawak couldn't keep winning forever, so Helga was unanimously voted out.
