Reason for being on "Survivor": To challenge my talents and survival skills under isolated circumstances, and to prove to my family that being resilient pays off.
Why you think you'll win "Survivor": With my survival skills and instincts, living on an island for 39 days will be easy. Utilizing the other survivors in alliances and/or challenges will take skills that I’ve mastered throughout my baseball career. Motivating and manipulating people is what I did best in the locker room and on the field.
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
• A lounge chair to lounge in and sleep in.
• My iPod to motivate me and tune things out.
• A pillow to put my most valuable body part on a soft spot.
