Dustin Putman was a contestant on Tumblr Survivor: Newfoundland, Tumblr Survivor: Ancient Greece, Tumblr Survivor: Sri Lanka, Tumblr Survivor: Cutthroat Island & Tumblr Survivor: Game Changers.

Dustin is the host of Tumblr Survivor: Bora Bora & Tumblr Survivor: Isla de las Munecas.

Tumblr Survivor: Newfoundland

His loved one in this season was Jonathan who is his best friend who he met on the popular gaming website "Tengaged". Dustin was known for his close friendship to Molly Christ and her partner Sam.

He had a uphill battle from the beginning with a target already on his head because of his tight friendship with James and Kevin and being in most of the day 1 alliance chats (although he honestly didn't think he was in all of them). He was in majority for all of the preswap Nipi thanks to his alliance with Adam and Lindsay plus his friendships with Kevin and James. Once tribe swap happened Dustin had to begin his fight for survival. He began getting votes cast against him and his fellow "alliance" members started turning against him. He individually won two challenges for post-swap Nipi plus finding two Hidden Immunity Idols, one being a Sapphire Idol and one being a regular idol. He used the regular idol right before merge cause he didn't know if the tribe was going to vote him or Kevin, unfortunately for Dustin, they voted Kevin. Once he hit merge he was finally on a tribe with Molly & Sam and thought he was safe. However at the first merge tribal council he was almost voted out, however due to James getting a self vote, Dustin was spared. Knowing he was close to his expiration date in the game he formed a plan with Molly to use to the Sapphire Idol and get out Scott who was one of the main people targeting him during post-swap Nipi. The Plan was a success however Dustin was now defenseless. Two tribals laters Dustin met his demise, Foxx used his hidden immunity idol which was a Ruby Idol, this Idol forced the vote to go automatically to purple rocks. At tribal that night Dustin pulled the purple rock and was eliminated.

Tumblr Survivor: Ancient Greece

Dustin in this season was known for his close affiliation with The Secret Society and him trying to charm Jack almost every single round and also his close friendship with Michelle & Gerda

His life in this game started off looking very dim, being put on a tribe with Kevin who hated him at the start off the season, however he was also put with Lindsay who is one of his close friends outside of the game. He formed a close bond with Lindsay & Austin as well as Michelle. As Aphrodite lost both the first two challenges his goal was to get out both the people not working with him, which he got accomplished. Dustin tried to keep tribe moral up, and fortunately they won the next two challenges. At the tribe swap Dustin kept close ties with Michelle and knew he could keep her at his hip. During this swap they won every single challenge. This allowed him to make merge with Michelle with no worries. At merge there were many alliance chats however The Secret Society was made and kept close ties, after the Katie vote off and Lindsay quiting, Dustin decided to stick with The Secret Society. Round after round they got their targets out, which Dustin always made sure it was one of his targets. Due to this Dustin got to the final six with ease, at the final 6 Dustin made a plan to get to the final three with the two girls he trusted the most, during this Dustin also found an idol. Dustin made his plan to get out both Jessy & Scott, which he got done. To get Scott out however he had to win final immunity, which he did. Scott made it to the end with the people he wanted too, however the jury wanted to make sure Michelle didnt win and his friend Jack did not want to vote for him. This led to him losing the 3 votes he had, and those votes going to Gerda because the jurors did not want Michelle to win. Dustin received second runner up with his head still head high because this time he left without a purple rock in his hand

Second Runner-Up, Day 50

Tumblr Survivor: Sri Lanka

Dustin was brought back for Dynamic Duos with his most dynamic of duos, Jonathan! They were each others partner in Blood vs Water, and both on their second season placed third with 0 votes to win. Even though they were never on a tribe together, they were seen as one of the most iconic duos of Tumblr Survivor history.

Dustin's gameplay was focus more on challenges than social based, due to the fact they had a stacked tribe, and frequent swaps let no connections be permanent. Dustin did finally see that Jonathan is more of a hindrance than an advantage due to the fact that Jonathan loves big moves, and Dustin is bad under peer pressure. This would lead to the eventual downfall of Dustin due to big moves Jonathan wanted to make and flipping to the wrong side at the merge. Dustin was also known for his friendship with Katie, who he became close to back in Tumblr Survivir Brain vs Brawn vs Beauty. Dustin & Katie's friendship lasted all the way up to the merge, until Dustin was blindside with a Ruby Idol still in his pocket.

Dustin ended up voting for a fellow Badgal, Jake B to win Tumblr Survivor Sri Lanka due to Jake having close connection other badgals and he was overall just not gross like Jay & Szymon.

Tumblr Survivor: Cutthroat Island

Dustin went into this game with no connections, and not expecting much, however he was apart of the best alliance to every conquer a tumblr survivor season, and by conquer i mean STEAMROLL. His connections to Abel from before Cutthroat Island and his newfound friendships with Amir & Zack from orginal Magyi combined into one gay as hell alliance title "The Fagtastic Four". Dustin placed third because he could not win final immunity, and Amir knew he would win against Zack at f2. This lead to Dustin placing third for the second time in Tumblr Survivor
