Age: 33
Hometown: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Current residence: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Occupation: Furniture Company Owner

Hobbies: Playing basketball, traveling, creating something from nothing.

Pet peeves: People who aren't open-minded despite facts/logic/new information, people that overuse the word "honestly," and not being in control of my destiny.

Three words to describe you: Witty, intelligent, and competitive.

What's your personal claim to fame?
I left a comfortable job in the legal field to pursue my dreams.

Who or what is your inspiration in life?
My family. I'd do anything for them or to make their lives better.

If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
First, my brush to take care of my beautiful beard and fro. Second, a chainsaw so I can make building things a lot easier, and finally, a sketchbook so I can doodle, draw, and write.

Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
I think I'd play the game like Jeremy Collins because I'll always keep my heart in the right place, but I'll still be a serious competitor and threat.

What's your reason for being on Survivor?
I've been a big fan for a while, and I've always wanted to push myself to the limits and see if I can really survive. Oh yeah, I'm playing for the million bucks, too. That would really help things.

Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
I'm good with people and likable. I'm very diplomatic and can connect with people from different walks of life. I'm also not the biggest and strongest looking person, though I can compete with the best of them. That will get me past the first few votes. Then, my athleticism and skill at puzzles will help me win challenges when it becomes an individual game. Finally, my persuasive skills in front of a jury will win me the million. Boom.

I liked Donald Glover.  As long as he doesn't go fucking nuts, which Survivor's Token Black Man seems to do lately.

Wendell is my favorite player in a long, long time. That "Chris the Rapper" speech he gave was one of the best ever. I'm Team Wendell all the way.

I don't see him making it to the end, he's playing a bit too hard and a bit too obvious. I can see his "final 4" being him just him and Dom well before he knows it.

I like the kid a lot, so if he doesn't win - as nixiechick wisely documented the reasons why that is not likely to happen - I'd like to see him back for an allstar round.

I mean...I like him, but apart from looking like Donald Glover I don't know that he's done anything All-Star worthy yet.

So...I actually thought it was kind of weird.  Like, I loved that Wendell called him out, but then he just kept going on about it, and for me it got weird.

I love all the furniture he is building, the hanging shelves and the chairs.

The nice guy finally won... and it just feels wrong. The Survivor brainwashing is complete. I've hated Dom from day 1. But, he really did play the better game.
