Uri is a contestant from Survivor: Borneo. Uri estabolished himself as the leader of the Pagong tribe, gathering Mandy, Razzy and Tia as his followers. Uri was known to take a strong disliking for fellow tribe member Eli, causing a rift between the two and the whole tribe. Uri held a high opinion of himself and his game, despite being mostly controlled by Razzy and Tia, who had to clean up the mistakes Uri had made through poor gameplay. Uri became the second person voted out of the Rattana tribe, becoming the first ever member of the jury in the history of the series.

Survivor: Borneo

Uri started the game on the Pagong tribe, which he helped divide due to his early disliking for tribemate Eli, whom he felt was attempting to take Uri's much desired alpha-male role. The tribe would end up splitting into two groups, with Uri getting a majority of Julia, Mandy, Razzy and Tia to follow him around, creating what he felt would be a strong final five alliance. Uri's group was successful in removing Eric from the game, who was viewed as lazy and a potential ally to Eli. Uri's attitude around camp caused Tia to feel vulnerable, being groomed by Alice to turn on Uri and his alliance. When Pagong lost the third immunity challenge, Tia managed to convince the tribe to go after Julia, with Uri joining them, stating that he hoped keeping Eli around wouldn't come back to haunt him. Pagong found themselves on a winning streak, avoiding two tribal councils. However, they would eventually lose the sixth immunity challenge, meaning Uri finally had the opportunity to remove long time rival Eli from the game. Uri felt confident that at a merge he would be able to keep Alice on board, despite taking out her only ally Eli. Uri ignored warnings that Tia was being manipulated by Alice, and instead concentrated on keeping Mandy and Razzy happy. Before tribal council, Tia managed to convince Uri that removing Eli would result in Pagong's downfall, with Alice refusing to stay with them at the merge. Uri, the suggested leader of Pagong, revealed himself to truly be a puppet leader, being controlled by Tia, who got him on board to blindside Mandy from the game in a 4-2 vote. On Day 19 when Danni came to assess the livability of Pagong, he discovered that the Tagi tribe had cracks in it, making him feel positive about Pagong's chances in the game. On Day 21 Uri stuck with Pagong and a newly flipped Danni to blindside Tagi's leader Ben from the game. At the next tribal council Uri's paranoia and poor social and strategic game caused Alice to realize that he was intending to blindside her allies from the game, resulting in Alice, Danni and Eli forming a counter alliance to take Uri out of the game. Despite Uri's attempts at removing Danni from the game, trying to take control of Olivia and Sarah, he was blindsided in a 4-3-2 vote, with the counter alliance and Teddy all coming together to take him out of the game, placing Uri on the jury. Uri ended up voting for Teddy to win the game, whom he felt was much more strategic than Olivia, who he slated for doing "nothing".
