Survivor: Mongolia

Wayne was one of twenty contestants picked to be on Survivor: Mongolia, much to his delight as he was an avid traveler. As soon as all twenty contestants began working on the shelter, Wayne quickly asserted himself into tasks that others, such as Scott Colston, had under control. It quickly grated on the majority of his tribemates, and he immediately became a target for elimination. After under-performing in the first immunity challenge of the season and being deemed controlling and abrasive, Wayne only lasted two days and was voted out in a 8-2 vote.
