Many Survivor fans were shocked when Xander Hastings made it to the end but then failed to win Survivor Season 41.

As seen in the image above, Xander was pretty emotional during the season finale, which saw him finish in third place.

On the finale for Survivor 41, it was Erika Casupanan who won the $1 million prize.

Despite finishing in third place, Xander did win a lot of money on Survivor, but one fan feels that he deserves more accolades than simply the third-place winnings.

A GoFundMe page for Xander Hastings from Survivor 41

“I think the majority vote of Survivor fans nationwide would be that Xander was the true winner of Survivor Season 41. I thought what better way to send a message to the show that we the fans are upset with the outcome than for all of us to rally together and show how passionate we are that Xander was the winner in our eyes,” reads the opening statement to a new GoFundMe page created by a user named Eva Walker.

The user also wrote that “I’m just a regular 25 year old who’s a big fan of Survivor. I was disheartened by this season’s outcome and wanted to do something about it!”

And according to Eva, “all proceeds could go to Xander, who’s currently a college student, because he was such a sincerely kind player who did indeed outwit, outplay, outlast!”
