Age: 35
Hometown: Brockton, Massachusetts
Current residence: Henderson, Nevada
Occupation: Pro Poker Player

Hobbies: Kickboxing, beatboxing, and hiking.

Pet peeves: When people try to enter my elevator just as I am trying to exit! Also watching someone misplay a hidden Immunity Idol makes me nuts.

Three words to describe you: Resilient, analytical, and savvy.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Holding the world record for most consecutive cashes in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event. Also getting my dad out of Brockton and buying him a place in Henderson, Nevada!

Who or what is your inspiration in life?
The American soldiers who risk their lives everyday fighting for our freedom. Also those who never give up.

What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you?
That I am musically inclined.

Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
Jeremy Collins because he's charismatic, loyal, compassionate, and can read players so well. Strategically, my approach would be a hybrid of Devon Pinto—bluffing the dumb role sneakily well—and Boston Rob—impeccable timing of making big moves and sniffing out when people are up to something.

What's your primary motivation for being on Survivor?
To challenge myself like I never have before. I spend my life adapting to ever-changing environments. I grew up in a rough inner-city neighborhood and rose above and have been successful in one of the most competitive, cutthroat businesses on Earth. Poker is such a great challenge and competition and I want to always challenge myself to do better and better. There is no greater challenge in life than Survivor, I must conquer it.

Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
Because of the life I have already survived. It was a crazy rough neighborhood I grew up in, but I made it out and I have even traveled to 30 countries since then. I am also a beast at physical challenges. I have a very strong social game and, thanks to my poker skills, I will be able to read people well and will blindside the "blindsiders." I will be able to break hearts when I need to, even my own. The relationships will be real, but the ultimate goal will always be Sole Survivor.

OMG, yes! I live on the 8th floor and this drives me nuts every single time it happens. 

I think this one could go far. His poker playing skills should really come into play.

MrsGryn nailed it!

After watching him tonight, I couldn't have been more pleased, either!

MrsGryn knows her Survivor - I simply couldn't overlook his hair plugs, which were VERY noticeable once wet, where he attempted to create bangs.  Hair plugs are often acceptable - but bangs, on a guy, are never a good look - just ask Nick/BB.

She certainly does! And I was so unimpressed with this guy in his episode....just confirming once again, I usually back the wrong horse.  But it makes the game all the more of a puzzle to me.

I didn't like him from the moment I heard him speak. He has no career and can't hold down any job for long, as he described himself.  Truly a rat-faced weasel.  I'm glad we only had to see him for one episode.
