Biography: Kelly Wiglesworth (born June 24, 1977) was the runner-up on the original American version of the CBS reality series Survivor. Wiglesworth, a whitewater rafting guide, dominated the physical challenges in Survivor: Palau Tiga, winning four straight immunity challenges to propel herself to the Final Two. An original member of the dominant Tagi voting alliance which included Richard Hatch, Susan Hawk, and Rudy Boesch, Wiglesworth's conscience got the better of her and she later abandoned the alliance. Wiglesworth may best be remembered for being on the receiving end of a harsh speech given by Susan Hawk at the season's final tribal council. Hawk, furious that Wiglesworth had abandoned the alliance and betrayed their friendship, called Wiglesworth a rat and told her that if Wiglesworth was lying on the side of a road, dying of thirst, she would not give her water and would let the vultures have at her. Although well-liked by the other jury members, Wiglesworth lost to the more strategic Richard Hatch in the final vote.
