Alan Ball

Photo and bio info courtesy of CBS.com

Age: 31
Hometown: Detroit, Mich.
Current Residence: Houston, Texas
Occupation: NFL Player


Hobbies: Golf, scuba diving, and riding my motorcycle.

Pet peeves: I can't stand liars or people who feel entitled. I also can't do clutter and people who don't clean up after themselves.

Three words to describe you: Intelligent, athletic, and clever.

What's your personal claim to fame?
Being a seventh round draft pick and grinding for nine years in the NFL.

Who or what is your inspiration in life?
My parents. They are my best friends. I respect the both for their work ethic, and everything they instilled in me. My parents have been married for 30+ years and I know that takes work.

If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
Hot sauce because it makes everything better, a picture of my wife because sometimes just looking at her changes my mood, and baby wipes!

Which 
Survivor contestant are you most like?
I honestly don't think you will see gameplay like mine; one of the only things I have in common with people on past seasons is there was a winner.

What's your reason for being on 
Survivor?
Playing football has fed my drive to compete physically for a long time. Of course there are mental aspects but I feel like this is competing mentally, physically, and strategically. I also want to win on my own merit—no coaches, no practice—just me winning outside of something I've done for years.

Why do you think you'll "survive" 
Survivor?
Everything I've accomplished I've had to scratch and claw at it. I've never been given anything or put in situations to succeed. My life has always been about proving people wrong and I feed on that, here is another shot.

I like that he wants baby wipes. Enjoy the leaves!

Actually, hot sauce was a good answer. It will help with those nasty snails they eat every season.

He doesn't look like the Academy Award winning screen writer of American Beauty and creator of Six Feet Under!

But he survived working with Cybill Sheppard, so this should be a shoe-in.

Since he and his directionally-challenged eyes brought the insanity a mere two days in, did the others begin sleeping in shifts after confirmation of the strip-search got around? 

I worked with pro football players for years and his type of crazy would've had everyone giving side-eye within the first few days of training camp. Word gets around; everyone, from the organization to agents to coaches and other teams, would know of the crazy within 24hrs everytime it makes an appearance. They'd find a way to work the crazy to be beneficial on the field.

His crazy is on a level with that guy a few seasons back that said he was an FBI agent and wore the pink underwear. And those eyes...they get huge when he's talking. Like huevos locos

I'd like to see Josh's (BB, sorry) reaction to this guy... suspect it would kinda like that hilarious reaction he had to Paul that time...

I liked him (full disclosure: all my opinions are formed strictly on the basis of their cast photos and written responses) but Jesus, I've watched Survivor long enough to know that when you're looking for someone to go batshit crazy, always bet on black.  What in the hell did he think he would accomplish?
