Gorham postal worker Dan Foley was one of the contestants most likely to be voted off in the first week, now he is one of 12 final survivors! 

The 48 year-old has survived the 6th week even after his tribe lost the immunity challenge and was sent to Tribal Council. Many thought he would be one of the first to go. With his loud, somewhat abrasive attitude combined with his lack of underwear early in the game were sure signs his name would come up in the vote. Much to my surprise and many others he has become a great team asset and works hard in challenges, must be those Maine roots!

This season of 'Survivor' takes place in Nicaragua, we will see if Dan makes it all 39 days to the finale in May.
