let me just say that this fake merge is basically the equivalent of a nuke.

–Nifty (reacting to fake merge.)

Niftyness, also known as "Nifty", is a contestant from Survivor: Azerbaijan.

He is known for having a decent social game up until the merge, where he became very rude and stand-offish to The Sloppy Seconds once they became the minority alliance at the merge. Ultimately Nifty became the first person voted out by his own alliance, The Rebels, once Jared won immunity after becoming the last loyal member of The Sloppy Seconds.


Name(Age): "Nifty" Nicholas (16)
Tribe Designation: Sheki
Current Residence: Wisconsin, USA
Personal Claim Of Fame: Obtaining my unique nickname in my freshmen year of High School.
Inspiration in Life: Choir; any friends I've made from choir and the two awesome teachers I've had in choir classes so far. All of these people have definitely inspired me and shaped me up to who I am now.
Hobbies: Singing, writing, biking, and losing ORG's.
3 Words To Describe You: So Damn Nifty
If you could have 3 things on an island what would they be and why?: A blanket for warmth and comfort, a few things of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups cause I live for those, and a rubber duck from my rubber duck collection so that I know I have one thing to talk to and trust 100% while I'm out there.
Survivor Contestant you are Most Like: I'd like to say a cross between Todd Herzog and Denise Stapley, but then again, I change up my gameplay a bit each time I play an ORG.
Reason for being on Survivor: To have fun! I mean, I wouldn't want to come out here if I thought it was gonna be a horrible experience, right? I'm here to enjoy my time with these people and hopefully make new friends from it.
Why do you think will be Sole Survivor: I didn't come here to win, so I honestly don't think I'll become the Sole Survivor nor do I want to become the Sole Survivor. However, if I do somehow become the winner of this season, I think it'll be because of my social ability paired with my strategic mind, and the fact that I like to lay low and try to get far in the game by appearing as a non-threat.
