Kneesocks Demon is a contestant from Survivor: Phillip Land and Survivor: Japan — All-Stars.

Kneesocks is most remembered for her aggressive approach to strategy while abstaining from winning individual challenge, claiming that such wins will make her a bigger target. In Phillip Land, she and Shinzo Abe formed the dominant Bonan Alliance of which the former took control of after merge. This caused Shinzo to leave the alliance because of her dominant force in the group and voted her out on Day 36. In Japan — All-Stars, she found herself in the majority on the Hontoni Alliance and formed a strong friendship with tribemate Loafers Dearest. When he was voted out on Day 30, she sought vengeance by going after those who voted him out, including former alliance members Mitt Romney and Frank Eudy. Her strategic aggressiveness and her under the radar strategy made her the Sole Survivor by a 6-2-0 vote over Rose Ayis and Coco.
