After the production of Survivor: Vanuatu, the series’ host, Jeff Probst sent Berry an e-mail just to say hello and shortly thereafter, the two began dating. They did not make their relationship public until the live airing of the Vanuatu reunion show when, as the closing credits rolled. At that time, Probst began holding Berry’s hand in front of the studio and viewing audience. Probst expressed his gratitude for Berry in an interview with People magazine. Probst went ahead to say; “I finally met someone who could teach me about love…Julie’s given me a sense of balance I’ve never had. It’s like fingers interlacing.”

Julie Berry Survivor
Julie was one of 18 people selected for the cast of Survivor: Vanuatu, the series’ ninth season overall in 2004. On meeting the show’s host, Jeff Probst, for the first time, Jeff knew at that time that he definitely wanted her on the show. She was originally placed in the Yasur tribe at the start of the game. It was an all female tribe group and on Day 11, Berry was one of only two women switched to the previously all-male Lopevi tribe (the other being Twila Tanner).
After merging, Tanner and Berry pondered between sticking with their Lopevi alliance or returning to their old all-female Yasur alliance. Finally, they chose to re-align with the women. Berry won the reward: a picnic lunch at the final five reward challenge.Julie Berry Survivor Photo
She also chose Chris Daugherty to enjoy the reward with her, hoping that he would join her in eliminating Tanner. Chris ended up siding with Tanner, and Berry was voted out, giving her a fifth-place finish overall and making her the fifth member of the jury.
Julie wept openly before proceeding to ask Daugherty if their friendship had been real or not at the final tribal council. She then followed that up with a make-or-break question to determine which finalist would get her vote. Finally, Berry voted for Daugherty over Tanner for the title of Sole Survivor.
