Malcolm Freberg is a three time Survivor contestant and the winner of Mr. Survivor 2014.
Malcolm played during Survivor: Philippines, Survivor: Caramoan, and Survivor: Game Changers. In his first season, he started out on the Matsing tribe and was one of the last two people left on his tribe. He was able make new bonds with members of the Tandang tribe and made it to fourth place. Malcolm returned the next season on the Favorites tribe. He became a target after the blindside of his ally Corinne Kaplan at the merge, and he was able to skirt danger multiple times with his "Three Amigos" alliance. He is most well known that season for saving his entire alliance by playing two Hidden Immunity Idols in one night and booting Phillip Shepherd. Unfortunately, Malcolm was voted out the next round and finished in ninth place. He would later win the final Sprint Fan Favorite award at the Caramoan reunion. In Game Changers, Malcolm was voted out fourth after both the Nuku and Mana tribes attended Tribal Council together to eliminate one person. Malcolm's closest ally J.T. Thomas informed his previous Nuku tribe members of his tribe's plan, which allowed Mana to play an idol on Sierra Dawn Thomas and vote singularily for him.
Malcolm first appeared in his exit interview following Philippines. Malcolm joins Rob to talk about what went on in the game after a long night of partying. Rob wants to know why Malcolm didn’t go through with voting out Denise at the final four. Malcolm reveals that he was trying to get Mike and Lisa to agree to vote out Denise in the next round. Malcolm felt like once he had gotten Lisa and Skupin to go along with his plan, he felt like he had already won the game. Malcolm also explains why he didn’t lie to Denise at the final four of the game. Malcolm discusses with Rob the way that he was able to get Mike Skupin and Lisa Whelchel to stay loyal to him until the final four by taking advantage of their bonds to family and faith. Malcolm also explains what a thrill it was for him to go and be on Survivor after watching the show for such a long time. Plus, Malcolm discusses when Lisa found his hidden immunity idol and how that almost cost him the game.
Malcolm's next appearance was his exit interview after being voted out in Caramoan. He talked with Rob about Andrea staking out his Idol hunt, his Idol manuever the previous week, and much more.
