Top 10 Sexiest Women of CBS's Survivor (With Pictures)

Even without makeup and hairdryers, the women of Survivor still manage to make living on a deserted island look good. With all of the backlash against airbrushing, implants and other forms of manufactured beauty, Survivor manages to put the real into reality tv. Just how hot are the women of survivor? Many have gone on from the show to careers in modeling, including spreads and covers of Maxim and Playboy. Others are everyday girl-next-door good-looking, but watch out-- if a hurricane just so happens to blow through the neighborhood, they'll be the ones chopping down trees, making fires, and hunting down food for the whole block.

Criteria: While the women on the list are obviously all extremely attractive, other criteria were involved. Many fared extremely well on the game of survivor, outwitting, outplaying, and even outlasting the competition. In addition, intelligence, stamina, ingenuity, community involvement, personality, personal fortitude and inner strength were all considered. While there's quite a few pretty faces that could have made the list, the following ten women of Survivor are beautiful from the inside out...

Julie Berry - Survivor: Vanuatu, 5th place

10. Julie Berry - Vanuatu

Julie Berry made headlines in Vanuatu for sunbathing naked and shamelessly flirting with host Jeff Probst. The two dated wound up dating for three years after the show aired, but broke off their relationship in 2008.

From the Maliseet Indian tribe, Julie is a member of the East Carolina Native American Organization. A graduate of East Carolina University, Jule completed her bachelor's degree in Family and Community Development, and works for the Peace Corps to as a health advocate and with at-risk youth.

In 2005 Julie was included on Maxim's Hot 100 Women list.

9. Amanda Kimmel - Micronesia, China, Heroes vs. Villains

Amanda Kimmel set the record for longest amount of time spent on Survivor, 108 days in total. Though the record was later broken, Amanda proved to be one of the toughest competitors, placing in the final two for her first two seasons. By her third season, the other competitors saw her as a large threat, and voted her off the island just after the merge.

Originally from Montana, Amanda is a beauty pageant queen and avid outdoorswoman, taking part in an annual "penguin plunge" into a frozen lake for charity. She has competed in the Miss USA and Miss Earth pageants, and currently models for Maximum Talent Agency.

Amanda once flew a kite off of the Great Wall of China wearing five-inch heels.

8. Michelle Yi - Survivor: Fiji

Michelle Yi won over the hearts of her fellow tribemates and the viewing public with her sunny yet quirky personality. She was the first contestant on the history of the show to create fire without the aid of a flint, using a pair of glasses to magnify the rays of the sun.

Had Michelle not been voted out prematurely due to an unexpected game twist, she would have been a front runner for the title of sole survivor.

Michelle studied fashion at the University of Cincinatti, and has a passion for rock-climbing.

7. Marisa Calihan - Samoa

Marisa Calihan certainly had no staying power, but deserves some recognition to being the first victim of Survivor's most notorious villain, Russel Hantz. Russel openly admitted to targeting the most intelligent and outspoken tribe members, and Marisa was first on his list.

A self-described free-spirit, Marisa spent many years traveling through poverty-stricken countries. While abroad, she helped to install plumbing and running water in impoverished communities.

5. Candice Woodcock - Cook Islands, Heroes vs. Villains

Candice Woodcock originally appeared on the Cook Island season of survivor, where she popularized the Survivor knee sock look. A fierce competitor, Candice took the lead in many of the challenges, but was ultimately voted out after a change in tribal loyalties.

Cast as a Hero on the Heroes vs. Villains season, Candice became the 5th member of the jury after the other competitors decided that she was too strong of a player mentally and strategically. And what's sexier than a smart woman in knee socks?

A medical student at George Washington University, Candice has done extensive humanitarian work in Africa, including teaching school and founding a clinic to distribute eyeglasses. She has served as the executive director of Students for Students International at her alma mater, the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.

Sundra Oakley placed in the final four in the Cook Islands season of survivor, the "race season." This final foursome overcame unbelievable odds, and included one member from each of the four races represented. Sundra's tribe was knocked down to four after a surprise mutiny, compared to the opposing tribes eight members. The foursome went on to defeat the other tribe one member at a time, and all four teammates made the final four together.

Off the island, Sundra is a makeup artist for The View, as well as an actress. She has appeared in CSI: Miami, CSI, Lost, As the World Turns, and Sex in the City. She is also a trained martial artist.

Jennifer received a bachelor's degree in nutrition and food management from Oregon State University, and worked with the Me and My Two Friends Foundation to promote early detection for breast cancer.

Natalie White was the winner of the Survivor: Samoa season. Samoa had the largest cast in the history of the show, and Natalie managed to beat not only the nineteen other contestants, but uber-villain Russel Hantz.

A Southern belle from Van Buren, Arkansas, Natalie shocked tribemates by clubbing and killing a rat, then bringing the carcass back to camp for a meal.

A graduate of the University of Arkansas, Natalie majored in marketing and worked as a pharmaceutical sales rep before going on the show.

1. Parvati Shallow - Cook Islands, Micronesia, Heroes vs. Villains

The sexiest woman of Survivor award goes to Parvati Shallow, who charmed her fellow contestants and viewers across America with her inviting personality and hundred-watt smile. Beyond, charm, good looks and a killer body, Parvati deserves the title of Sexiest Female Survivor for her intelligence, impressive gameplay and meaningful contributions to her community.

Parvati first competed on the Cook Islands season, where she was dubbed "the flirt," and voted off early. On her second chance at the game in Micronesia, Parvati changed her gameplay, making a wicked alliance of women that got her all the way to the end.

Upon winning Micronesia, Parvati donated the majority of her winnings to the charity she created, Knockouts For Girls. The organization promotes self esteem and empowerment for young girls through boxing instruction, but it also serves as a fund-raising vehicle to generate support for a variety of social service programs that help underprivileged women and girls.

Parvati majored in journalism at the University of Georgia, with minors in French and Italian. She grew up on a commune in Florida, and is a professional boxer.

I've never watched these shows but no doubt the women are attractive.

I'm not a big tv person, but Survivor is my guilty pleasure:) I also find it interesting to see how people behave when they're put in such an extreme situation...I've noticed a lot of comparisons between behavior the show and how people behave in office or social environments, even politics.

Attractive women, all right. But I am not a TV fan, especially of "reality' sitcoms. But I know one can get hooked. We find different comparisons with 'real life' in various other kinds of presentations. At present I'm very hooked on Jane Austen and find it amazing how much those times both compare and contrast with now and she was such a genius at observing and writing about them. We can be glad of the improvements and aware of the lessons. As is said, when we miss the lessons of history, we are doomed to repeat them.

Nellieanna - It is so amazing how writers like Austen manage to write literature that is still so relevant to our times. Lately I've been on a Charlotte Bronte and Mary Shelley kick. I'm continually amazed how issues that appear in their novels still resound in our present day. Next semester I've signed up to take "Morality in the 19th Century British Novel" and "Altruism in the 21st Century." I'm so excited, because I think each will be a great compliment to the other.

You're so right about people getting "hooked" on t.v. Especially with reality shows, I think there's a lot of people who find themselves living vicareously through them and not engaging in actual "living life." It really is a serious addiction, though so many people joke about it.

For everyone that commented- I originally created the hub because not only do I think these women are attractive, but because I wish that there was more value in our culture for this kind of beauty: women with muscles and diplomas, who can fish, hunt, build a fire, write a thesis or dissertation, create a charity, run a business, and aren't afraid to be caught on camera without makeup, a shower, and a hairdo...

It's gotten a lot more interest than I thought, and I'm honestly not sure how I feel about that. Do I like the traffic, yes, but a part of me wishes that people would be just as interested in "The Role of Science in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein."

Such is the internet I guess...

I'm sure the producers probably screened them pretty well! But its funny, there's a ton of actresses/models that really don't look very good at all when their not made up/airbrushed!

Not sure why I clicked on this hub as I'm not a fan at all of Survivor but I was very familiar with the story of Jennifer Lyon. I had no idea she passed away. :( Guess it wasn't a big news deal when it happened?

Cool hub!

Cheeky Girl, I agree that Jennifer Lyon should be number one! She is truly an inspiration, and a beautiful person at that. I actually took a poll to pick the order on 1-9, and majority ruled :(

This is incredible the amount of beautiful women who have passed in this t.v program that's perfect because I know that many men who used to watch that program and used Generic Viagra didn't use it anymore because those women were so hot.
