Meet Rocksroy Bailey, the oldest member of the Ika tribe on Survivor 42.
A self-proclaimed thankful, calm (except when driving), and faithful, Rocksroy decided to go on this reality game show to play not just for the “Sole Survivor” title but also for his family and the money. He told CBS that the million-dollar prize if he took home, would be a life-changing amount for his family.

Rocksroy Bailey On Survivor 42
Rocksroy Bailey was introduced on Survivor 42 as a stay-at-home dad who hopes to contribute by winning challenges and providing comfort to his tribe. Then, Rocksroy himself admitted that his game-play style is going to be the most similar to former Survivor contestant John Cochran. Like him, he said he would learn from his mistakes and tweak his approach over time to compete at a higher level and win.
The 9 March 2022-premiere episode saw Rocksroy’s co-competitor Zach Wurtenberger voted out first. So, Zach in his exit interviews spoke out about the tribe dynamics on Ika and what he said about Rocksroy was not exactly flattering.
When disclosing what his fellow tribemates thought of each other, he said there were tensions between Rocksroy and the entire tribe (with exception of the younger three).
According to Zach, in the very first 30 minutes that Rocksroy was not working on the shelter, he was “absolutely lovely”, he was a fun guy, and great to talk to. “However”, as the days progressed, relationships between Rocksroy and the rest of the tribe began to sour.
Zach also spoke about an instance during the first three days when Rocksroy was away from the rest of the tribe, and so everyone else was “simply let loose and had lots of fun” without him around.
Despite Zach saying all that, Rocksroy however still seemed to have strong bonds among his co-stars. He held more influence over the tribe than Zach did.
