MJ Dawson was a contestant on Maluku, a returning contestant on Okinawa, Generations, All-Stars, Hosts, and the winner of Olympics.

MJ was crowned Mr. Tumblr Survivor 2015, reigning alongside Miss Tumblr Survivor, Jessie, on April 10th, 2015.

Tumblr Survivor: Maluku - Fans vs Favorites


Age: 7.
Hobbies: Blogging. reading (anything that's not Harry Potter), drawing, watching and rewatching Survivor, running the Max Dawson fan club, and giffing.
Pet Peeves: Little kids that are afraid of dogs. It also bothers me when people don't like Max Dawson.
3 Words To Describe You: Outspoken, analytical, straightforward.
Name 1 thing not many people know about you: I don't really make it known to everyone that I really enjoy analyzing literature.
If you could have 3 things on an island what would they be and why?: Probably the essentials. So like a tarp or tent and maybe a sleeping bag. And the third item might be... cookies?
Favorite Survivor Season and Why: It's such a toss up between Cagayan, Micronesia, and Philippines. It's so hard to choose, but I guess I'd pick Philippines. The storylines and characters are just so fascinating, and the actual gameplay was fantastic.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like and Why: Probably Sash Lenahan from Nicaragua. Mainly because we are both of mixed race (white and black). He was also a competitor that was extremely strategic and also very loyal to his allies until it was time to cut them off. He was willing to do anything to get to the end, and I would be willing to do so as well. I don't think the way I would play would be very different than the way he played. I also want to be just like Max Dawson.
Reason For Playing Tumblr Survivor: I just think it will be really fun to play a game that I love and get to meet new people and interact with other bloggers. I never got the chance to apply for seasons 4 or 5 and I just think now is the right time.

^1. At the first Tribal Council in episode 8, Jessy used the Tatzelwurm, which was a Vote Steal advantage on MJ, preventing him from voting at Tribal Council.
