When you see Melinda Hyder perform at our Pigeon Forge show, she might look familiar. That’s because Melinda was one of 16 contestants on the 12th season of Survivor! In 2005, Melinda traveled to the Pearl Islands off the coast of Panama to compete for a million dollar prize. During her time on the show, Melinda completed challenging obstacle courses, piloted a sinking boat, and lived without modern conveniences for a week. Despite being well liked by the rest of the contestants, Melinda was voted off the island at the end of day six.
