Reason for being on "Survivor": I’ve been watching "Survivor" since I was 12 years old. Some kids grow up watching baseball on TV and dream of getting their chance to play in the big leagues. I grew up watching and dreaming about playing "Survivor."
Why you think you'll win "Survivor": There’s no reason to play the game if you’re not playing to win. I’m not trying to see "if I have what it takes" or "how far I can make it." The best thing I have going for me is my single-mindedness to be the champion.
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
• Hair ties -- I can’t see anything without them.
• Book of puzzles -- Your mind is a muscle and needs to be kept in shape.
• Whiskey to unwind after a hard day of challenge domination and competitor manipulation.
