Survivor: Vanuatu (Season 9)- 10th voted out
Lea Masters Biography:
Lea “Sarge” Masters, who was born on March 28, 1964 in Norfolk, Virginia, earned his degree in chemical engineering from Central Texas University and was a student of the Savannah Barber Institute in Savannah, Georgia. In 1986, Masters joined the US Army, and was assigned as a cannon crewmember. From there, he went on to become section chief and chief of firing battery, and eventually earned the positions of drill sergeant and officer. His employment history also includes grocery store manager, barber and deputy sheriff. Masters is extremely proud of his son, Kris, and is a huge fan of professional NASCAR racer Ricky Rudd. He shares a home in Columbia, South Carolina with his wife, Lupe.
Masters is not one to easily quit when faced with a difficult situation, and he made sure to do the same in the 9th installment of the Survivor reality series, Survivor: Vanuatu. Orginally from the male-dominated tribe, Lopevi, Masters was able to stay in the island for 24 days, and was voted out of the merged tribe, Alinta, because his fellow tribe members perceived him a strong threat.
