    Biography

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

    WATCH: Meet Survivor 35 Castaway Alan Ball

    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.

    Biography

    Age: 24
    Hometown: Lanett, Ala.
    Current Residence: Auburn, Ala.
    Occupation: Small Business Owner

    WATCH: Meet Survivor 35 Castaway Patrick Bolton

    Hobbies: Traveling to new places, snow and water skiing, and fishing.

    Pet peeves: Don't leave dishes in the sink. Pay me my money when it is due.

    Three words to describe you: Persistent, playful, and thankful.

    What's your personal claim to fame?
    Sustaining our business, Bolt Movers, and my sanity even through its tough times. Starting and running a new business puts you through stressful situations, but my family and friends have always kept me going strong.

    Who or what is your inspiration in life?
    My hero is my dad. He has been there for me and has supported me through everything! He has never let me down. I value the consistency, candor, love, and honesty that he shows to me and others. He has always set a good example for me and he leads by his actions. I would not have gotten where I am today without him! I give him a lot of credit for who I am today! I am thankful God has blessed me with a wonderful father and a great family.

    If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
    Teriyaki Sauce. Everything tastes better with teriyaki sauce. Next would be Takis (hot chili and lime flavor) because they are amazing and finally a pen and pad to document each play that made me Sole Survivor.

    Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
    Joe from Season 30. He was a nice guy and knew how to use his social skills to make friends in the game. When he was backed against a wall, he fought as hard as he could to win every individual immunity and save himself. He wasn't a quitter and neither am I!

    What's your reason for being on Survivor?
    My primary motivation is to win a million dollars! I'm a businessman and this is a business trip!

    Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
    I believe that I can withstand the challenges in every facet. I can solve puzzles, work well with my team, strategize, and in most cases beat out my competitors with my endurance. I can take on the outdoor elements, I can fish, I can build a shelter, and probably start a fire. I am good at bonding with others and communicating to create friendship and strategies so that my team will not want to eliminate me. I will be too valuable to get rid of, but will not outperform to look like a threat.

      BettyBoo And he sounds like Cody... he's a Marine and doesn't like "whiners". Wonder how long before he makes "victim noises". lol Katrina doesn't like whiners either. If they weren't already married, they could be the Cody & Jessica of Survivor.

    A mirror of course to see if I was looking good and I could possibly use the reflection to help make fire, my Bible since it would help keep me sane and tampons—they never bring up periods on Survivor but I do believe that would be an issue I wouldn't want to deal with.

      Biography

      Age: 28
      Hometown: Los Angeles
      Current Residence: Los Angeles
      Occupation: Firefighter

      WATCH: Meet Survivor 35 Castaway John "JP" Hilsabeck

      Hobbies: Surfing, hiking, and outdoor activities.

      Pet peeves: People that don’t follow through.

      Three words to describe you: Outgoing, adventurous, and romantic.

      What's your personal claim to fame?
      Being hired as a firefighter and having a good group of friends that I can count on.

      Who or what is your inspiration in life?
      My dad because he showed me that hard work and the right mindset can get you anywhere in life. Never quit and never give up.

      If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
      My dog Thor because he’s my best friend, a GoPro for the adventure photos, and a picture of my family and friends to keep me inspired because I wouldn't be where I am today without them.

      Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
      Jay because he was outgoing, fun, and was just down to earth.

      What's your reason for being on Survivor?
      The experience, adventure, and the chance to win the million dollars.

      Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
      After watching the show, I always told myself "I could do that!" I love being outdoors and in the elements but most of all, it's the challenges and adventure that I thrive off most. You not only have to be athletic but smart and able to read people. As a firefighter, I feel that gives me an advantage. When we go on medical calls we have to pick apart the problem and figure out what's wrong so we can treat the patient. I feel that with my athletic ability and personality, I will be the final Survivor!

          Biography

          Age: 29
          Hometown: Cape Girardeau, Mo.
          Current Residence: Louisville, Ky.
          Occupation: Nurse Practitioner

          WATCH: Meet Survivor 35 Castaway Jessica Johnston

          Hobbies: Personal training and all things outdoors and fun.

          Pet peeves: Any and all can openers—they just don't work.

          Three words to describe you: Tenacious, congenial, and adventurous.

          What's your personal claim to fame?
          Obtaining my doctorate in Nursing before the age of 28 and creating a health and wellness brand "Belovist."

          Who or what is your inspiration in life?
          Cliché – My parents. They both have devoted their lives to helping others. They have worked hard and excelled in education and careers—showing me that hard work pays off. They have shown me what true love means as well as the value of family and having a relationship with Christ. Even in my adult life, I remember the wisdom and lessons they've taught me while growing up, and it keeps this scattered mind of mine on point! They are my biggest fans, and I am theirs.

          If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
          First it would be baby powder because it makes my hair do incredible things and brightens up the face. It's like taking a powder bath! Next would be a swiss army knife so I can cut things like wood, food, and clothes. Finally, a fishing pole because this girl likes to eat!

          Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
          Probably Andrea Boehlke. One of my biggest personality strengths is being likeable and able to entertain a crowd! I can relate to thinking that the world is at my fingertips, but really I don't like to compare myself to others. I just try to be my best self!

          What's your reason for being on Survivor?
          I'm looking for the time of my life! Of course the money, adventure, and opportunities to challenge myself physically, emotionally, and spiritually in ways that I haven't been challenged before.

          Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
          I am extremely physically and mentally resilient as well as disciplined. I am driven by failures, challenges, and goals. I don't react solely on "good feelings." When I sense there is something to be accomplished, my Type A personality comes out! In the same breath, my sanguine personality always stands out as being a super-social optimist, which will give me favor with the other players. I could win Miss Congeniality of Survivor if there was such an award!

            Three words to describe you: Sarcastic, focused, and intelligent.

            If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
            Toilet paper, because duh, Kalteen bars, because butter isn't a carb, and moisturizer, because my skin has a tendency to get dry.

            Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
            If Sophie Clarke and Courtney Yates found a way to have a child I would be the result.

            What's your reason for being on Survivor?

            Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
            With a few exceptions, people usually like me. I am great at compartmentalizing, so I'll have the ability to form genuine connections with people, but I'm not one to lose sight of why I'm on Survivor—to be the winner.

            WATCH: Meet Survivor 35 Castaway Cole Medders

            Who or what is your inspiration in life?
            Tommy Coldwell—this man is a professional climber who lost his ring finger and has a family. This man has it all just by pursuing his passions. His motto is "no excuses."

            If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
            Weights to work out every day, a giant box of Legos for endless possibilities of fun, and a beach volleyball set because I could destroy everyone at it.

            Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
            Spencer from Season 28. He came across as a nerd or just a little awkward but he ended up being really dominant in challenges and in the mental/social game and that's how I see myself.

            What's your reason for being on Survivor?
            Of course the money would be incredible but I honestly think having the title of Sole Survivor is the ultimate accomplishment for an outdoorsman like me.

            Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
            I have the kind of mental fortitude and strength it takes to survive. I have the kind of fearlessness and problem solving skills it takes and I have the smarts. No one will come close to being as well rounded as I am.

            Biography

            Age: 34
            Hometown: Bronx, N.Y.
            Current Residence: Tolland, Conn.
            Occupation: Probation Officer

            WATCH: Meet Survivor 35 Castaway Joe Mena

            Hobbies: Working out, playing video games (fantasy football), and playing sports (flag football).

            Pet peeves: My biggest pet peeve is that fake energetic, fake smile, person that we all know. Also, someone who does not take responsibility for their actions, and is constantly giving excuses. Let's not forget that individual that must have one up on you.

            Three words to describe you: Real, confident, and energetic.

            What's your personal claim to fame?
            Obtaining my degree. This is something I'm proud of because it has given me the opportunity to secure my career and that has given me the lifestyle where I have the ability to provide my children with their wants, needs, and a lovely home that they can call their own. Without my degree, I wouldn't have been able to accomplish this.

            Who or what is your inspiration in life?
            A hero is someone who is noble and will not let you down. My sisters are my heroes—they are noble, loyal, and love me unconditionally.

            If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
            Me, myself, and a picture of my children. I don’t think I would need anything but a picture of my children. A picture would provide me with a tangible image of them instead of just a mental image.

            Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
            Tony Vlachos' understanding of how to manipulate others, Mike Holloway's "ball to the walls" attitude, and Jeremy Collins' ability to stay true to himself.

            What's your reason for being on Survivor?
            Mo money baby! Of course the million dollars. I play "survivor" 40 hours a week at work. It would take me 10 plus years to earn a million dollars at my current work rate. Why not speed up the process and make a million in six weeks? It’s a no brainer. In addition, I always tell my son that he needs to give 100 percent in everything he does. I'm constantly telling him "go hard or go home." I just want him to see that what I preach, I also apply to myself.

            Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
            I can relate to people from all paths of life, I work in a diverse community with diverse backgrounds in age, religion, and social status. I can converse with anyone about anything. With these stories, I’ll be able to manipulate individuals and my surroundings. I'm a likable, outspoken, and natural in most things I do. Nothing I do feels forced or uncomfortable. I'm well aware of my strengths and weaknesses. I'm not going to Survivor for vacation or fame. I'm not going to be away from my children for six weeks and come back empty handed. I can win this and I am confident I can.

              Who or what is your inspiration in life?
              My mentor and friend Susan Shin, a successful businesswoman and attorney in NYC. You would never know the struggles or experiences she has had in life by looking at her. Not only is she one of the most talented people that you could meet, she is also one of the kindest.

              If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?

                WATCH: Meet Survivor 35 Castaway Ashley Nolan

                Hobbies: Surfing, working out, training, and eating.

                Pet peeves: Ignorance, laziness, and complainers.

                Three words to describe you: Impressive, tough, and hilarious.

                What's your personal claim to fame?
                Just about as well rounded as any woman could be. I'll be just one of the guys—out saving lives, working out, and cracking jokes all day and then all of the sudden I can put myself together into a well-spoken lady who can charm your socks off and still kick butt.

                Who or what is your inspiration in life?
                This whole world inspires me. Everywhere you look there is opportunity to make a change for the better and to really go out there and live the exact life you want to live. People get so caught up in the day to day that they forget that in each of us is the power to change. The way I see it, there's nothing stopping anyone who wants something bad enough from going out and making it happen; and if that thing doesn't work out, you learn, you grow, and you move on.

                If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
                A surfboard to keep me sane, headphones to tune out other people's complaining, and a journal to secretly document everything and tactically plan how to use it against others.

                Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
                Richard Hatch seemed to have the right idea, and because he won. I am a winner.

                What's your reason for being on Survivor?
                Life is WAY too short to not say YES to everything. My dad and I have wanted me to be on Survivor since Season 1—and I finally decided that I should stop messing around and go out and win a million bucks for myself and the family. I get super anxious when life starts to settle too much so I really needed another curve ball in life to mix things up a bit and this is certainly it.

                Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
                If you're not first, you're last—and I refuse to be last. I have never given up or settled for second best at anything in my life. I know that my body is capable of way more than the average human and mentally I have the strong will, stubbornness, and confidence to ensure that I will be there at the end. Being the Sole Survivor is what is meant for my life next.

                  Hobbies: Surfing, yoga, and playing music.

                  Pet peeves: Selfishness, complaining, and narrow mindedness.

                  Three words to describe you: Confident, optimistic, and joyful.

                  What's your personal claim to fame?
                  I am most proud of the man I have become today from being on my own since graduating high school, accomplishing the things I have, and living wild experiences.

                  Who or what is your inspiration in life?
                  My parents are my heroes. They were young parents at the age of 22 and yet they managed to stay together and be there for my siblings and I throughout all these years.

                  If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
                  My guitar so I can serenade everyone, my surfboard so I can pass the time riding perfect untouched waves, and champagne to celebrate all the Immunity Challenges I'm going to win for my tribe.

                  Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
                  Ozzy and Malcolm. I'm just another lovable guy!

                  What's your reason for being on Survivor?
                  I think playing Survivor would be the most satisfying accomplishment and winning would be even more satisfying! I have this itch to play the game that just needs to be scratched!

                  Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
                  When everyone is too busy either loving me or underestimating me, I am going to be picking them off one by one until I am the Sole Survivor! Every single Immunity Challenge is mine. I will have everyone's vote at the end because they all will love me so much.

                    What's your personal claim to fame? Being a mother.

                    Who or what is your inspiration in life?
                    I studied nonviolence and Gandhi while at UC Berkeley. I am inspired by how he was able to use nonviolent resistance in a positive way. His profound spirituality and belief in justice altered history. There are two powers: love and fear. I like to focus on the power of love.

                    If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
                    A journal so I could write, music to dance, sing, and have fun, and a picture and letter from my family to feel amazingly loved, as I also send them love daily.

                    Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
                    I am a more outgoing, adventurous Denise Stapley. Also, I can relate to the ones who are tough, athletic, and say it like it is, but also have a softness to them.

                    What's your reason for being on Survivor?
                    TO WIN! To win the million dollars! I love to challenge myself, and allow my own intensity to thrive in a game like Survivor. I am also fascinated by human dynamics and what happens to people in these situations, and cannot wait to see how I handle it myself. I love seeing what I am made of.

                    Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
                    Because I can win! I know how to win. Just like I went from farm town girl to Olympic swimmer (swam for the USA 1985-1991, and 1988 Olympics), I am tenacious and great at convincing others to support me. They feel good about themselves around me and value me, thus being okay with me being the winner.
