Survivor: Vanuatu (Season 9)- 8th voted out
John Kenney Biography:
John Kenney was born on September 6, 1981 and grew up in Branford, Connecticut. He was a member of the basketball, lacrosse and baseball teams while he was completing his studies at Branford High School. For his tertiary education, Kenney moved to Boston in order to study as a Media Arts Design major at Northeastern University. His modeling career began in Manhattan, New York, and as a model, he was given the opportunity to travel to places such as Paris, Milan, Korea and Miami. A budding artist as well, Kenney plans to become an art and film teacher, and prior to his job as a mechanical bull operator at a local bar, he made a living by working in construction and being an x-ray technician.
Quite the athlete, Kenney decided to join Survivor: Vanuatu not just for the one million dollar cash prize, but also to immerse himself in challenging yet memorable life experiences. Unfortunately, Kenney was eliminated just before the two tribes, Yasur and Lopevi, were set to merge. The older male tribe members began to doubt Kenney’s honesty, while Kenney harbored feelings of mistrust for the older men. Nevertheless, the older men, together with two other female tribemates, made up the majority, consequently making Kenney the 8th contestant to be voted off the island.
