Survivor: Culture Clash is the fifth season of IAmNothing712's Survivor fanon series.

Note: While there are several people in the fanbase that would want a multi-nation format, currently it is not feasible in the canon show, as Mark Burnett only acquired the rights to do an all-American series. A lot of things are to be in consideration should a real Culture Clash season materializes. This link answers why Canadians and other non-American citizens are ineligible to compete in the US Survivor.

Bernardo Antonio "Budd" Marquez grew up in a dysfunctional family, with a jobless alcoholic father and a cancer-stricken mother. During his teenage years, he was an infamous brawler, frequently joining gang wars.

Budd was once part of a big drug cartel. At age 19, he was arrested along with several others, including their crime boss. This left his then-pregnant girlfriend, Fedra, to raise for their unborn son alone. Budd was initially punished by death penalty. While his fellow imprisoned comrades and boss decrease in numbers, being executed, one by one as the years passed, Budd found new life when he was visited by a priest. The priest lent him a bible to read, and lectured him on the scriptures. The priest, who saw hope in Budd, even got his life coach friend to mentor Budd. Budd became popular with his fellow prisoners, because of his change of heart. After spending 15 years in prison, Budd, one of the last of members of the syndicate to be executed, instead was granted a pardon. He tried to locate the whereabouts of his wife, only to find out that Fedra, who never once visited him in prison, was already married to someone else, and their son grew up knowing a different father. Budd decided to leave them alone, thinking that him being away would be best for them. Nowhere to go, Budd went to the parish where the priest he met in prison, resided. The priest offered him to take residence in the church. Eventually, he went on as a missionary, spreading the words of God.

Budd applied for Survivor to share the world his story, and if he wins, he would build a center for troubled teens.

From gymnastics, to spelling bees, science fairs and even attracting men, Elle's parents drilled her to perfection.

Not wanting to give up on her top student, she referred Cataleya to a rich benefactor-doctor who offers a scholarship program to would-be pharmacists.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Although it may seem like I'm fighting an uphill battle due to me being an older deaf woman, I'm a lot more versatile than what I let on. I can be social, I can interact with others pretty well, and I'm actually very outgoing if you get to know me.

Charlotte Marie Pierce has been deaf ever since she was a seven year old child. An infection in both ears caused her to completely lose her hearing, so she's had to struggle a lot through life, but she claims that that only made her stronger. She became a special education teacher so that she could help children who are facing the same problems she once had.

Name (Age): Dominic Stoops (25)

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Charisma and muscle are my strong suits. They may see me as a lowly garbage guy, but that's what's going to get me to the end! It'll be too late before anyone realizes they need to get rid of me!

Dominic Alden Stoops has had enormously high potential to succeed all throughout his life. Though raised in the lap of luxury, this education graduate ultimately decided garbage collecting after he heard his father planning a deal with a recycling firm to convert plastic garbage into chairs. Interested in helping out-of-school and orphaned youths, Dominic offered to help broker the deal to donate garbage-turned school armchairs to schools to also help curb the growing waste problems of the country. This selfless act had him nominated for the CNN Heroes award. Though he didn't win the award, he was honored nonetheless to be nominated in such prestigious award-giving body.

A certified hedonist, Dominic finds happiness from the simplicities of life and does not let others' opinions or criticisms bother him. While admittedly lacking the cold heart that is needed to play the game, Dominic can prove to be a pillar of strength in challenges and around camp. The reason why he applied for Survivor, is that he found out from his Filipino colleagues about the lack of classrooms and chairs in the Philippines; and if he wins, he would like to help by donating classrooms to public schools.

Will his carefree attitude be a ray of sunshine in the midst of conflict or turmoil, or will it make him a target early?

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I can float under the radar and sneak my way into the finals or I can be the mastermind. I think I can find a good way to get to the end, no matter the circumstances.

When the civil war struck Somalia, an American contingent offered the Siad household to relocate to the United States, in hopes of greener pastures and escape the tension. With everything to lose, Vernita and her family moved to the United States with basically nothing but the clothes on their backs. It was a rough first few years for the Siad family, because they struggled to marry their conservative lifestyle back in Somalia to America's much-liberal one. At age 18, Vernita entered college (thru a scholarship) to pursue psychology, while modelling on the side. Her biggest achievement was landing on a page of Seventeen magazine.

One the first things that wet Vernita's curiosity in the US was Survivor. She applied not only to play the game that she loved, but also to help her conduct a case study on how human interaction works by living it. If Vernita wins, she would use the money to buy her parents a new house.
