Esther, played by Esther Anderson (1)

Esther is a model from Melbourne, Australia. She'll do anything to win, including "cheat" by sabotaging the guide flags in the opening contest. However, she comes to regret secretly giving Victoria the unprepared mushrooms, which cause the girl to temporarily lose her mind. However, when Irene is injured, she has enough and, impressed by her friend's determination, offers to forfeit the game and summon the helicopter to get medical help. However, it's a ruse to convince five of the others to take Irene to the helicopter, disqualifying themselves.

Although Esther works with the others after that, she still betrays them after discovering that the revealer box holds the $500,000 prize. She hides the money in her bag and drives off without them.
Miljan, played by Miljan Milosevic

Miljan is a club DJ from Podgorica, Montenegro. He is the most ruthless of the male contestants, ready to do whatever it takes to win.

Daniel, played by Daniel David Sutton

Daniel is a computer programmer from Royalton, MN. When Tommy is killed, it hits him hard because of how Tommy helped him early in the competition. He has a crush on Irene.

Sam, played by Sam Dobbins

Sabina, played by Sabina Akhmedova

Sabina is a retired soldier from Haifa, Israel, although she has not revealed this to her fellow teammates. Very little is known of this mystery woman, although several of her fellow contestants are convinced that she knows something about the Tunguska area that she isn't revealing. Sabina carries a locket with a photo of a young boy in it, saying that it's what keeps her going. Later, Sabina tells Neeko that her son is ten and that he's with her father, a horrible man who raped her when she was growing up in an orphanage. She was forced to leave the orphanage and enlist in the Israeli Army, where she beat a high-ranking official when he tried to rape a girl. Sabrina was discharged and entered the contest to get enough money to buy her son back.
Natalie, played by Natalie Ann Scheetz

Natalie is a veterinary assistant from Santa Barbara, CA. She is financially well off and doesn't need the money. When desperate, she turned to Annie for love.

He's willing to sacrifice himself for others, and almost forfeits his chance in the contest to help an injured Daniel make it to the settlement in the first contest.
