Patton Southwell is a contestant on UltimateGambit's Survivor fan fiction Survivor: Japan - Civil War.


Name (Age): Patton Southwell, 35

Current Residence: Alexandria, Louisiana

Occupation: Used car salesman

Personal Claim to Fame: My car dealership is the biggest one in Alexandria.

Inspiration in Life: My old man taught me how to run a business. I wouldn't be anywhere near where I am now had it not been for him.

Hobbies: Golf, bowling, watching football, politics, and restoring old sports cars.

Pet Peeves: Democrats and entitled people. Same thing, really.

3 Words to Describe You: Brilliant, successful, and ruthless.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? A golf club to kill time, a golf ball to make the golf club useful, and a journal to keep a record of my victory.

SURVIVOR contestant you are most like: I intend to pattern my game after Brian Heidik, right down to the business trip approach. I also think I have a little Russell Hantz in me.

Reason for being on SURVIVOR: Being on my favorite TV show has been on my bucket list for years.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I have a ruthless streak, I'm not afraid of stabbing people in the back, and I have a sound strategy in place. I also have a way with words.

With an evil smile and the slightest glint of greed in his eyes, Patton Southwell certainly looks like your stereotypical used car salesman. But rather than allowing that to be a weakness, Patton plans to make that his strength, and will gladly embrace the villain role on his tribe. By manipulating his tribemates and doing just well enough in challenges, Patton is confident that he can win the game.

Survivor: Japan - Civil War

Patton was the sixth person chosen by Lawrence Ridley to be a part of the Ashikaga tribe. He quickly asserted himself as a strategic threat by aligning with Hannah Marshall, and later Beth Spurlock, Jasmine Taylor, Phoebe Moreira, and Shannon Mobley, in an attempt to usurp Lawrence as the tribe's daimyo. He got his first opportunity when Ashikaga lost the opening immunity challenge, but his plans were scuttled when Hannah decided to flip to Kyle Nichols' and Landon Mays' alliance, and Jasmine switched her vote to Shannon, a perceived weak link, voting out Beth instead. Infuriated, Patton capitalized on Jasmine's inability to get along with her tribemates at the next tribal council, blindsiding her when Ashikaga failed to gain any traction in challenges.

On day 7, before yet another Ashikaga tribal council, Patton learned about Lawrence's plans to vote out Kyle, another perceived weak link, and threatened to work with him unless Kyle's alliance voted against Lawrence. Kyle accepted the offer and Lawrence was voted out, making Patton the daimyo. Unfortunately, the change in leadership did not have the desired effect, as Ashikaga lost both of the next two challenges. The whole tribe turned against him, and he was blindsided in a 6-2 vote on day 10.
