    John Fincher - Survivor Samoa


    John Fincher

    Age: 25
    Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif.
    Occupation: Rocket Scientist

    John Fincher claims “winning” is his favorite hobby, and because of that he should have no problem playing the game of SURVIVOR. Being a rocket scientist probably will not hurt his chances either. This charmingly cocky genius believes he possesses the analytical skills necessary to take him far in the game while helping him create a mastermind strategy. In addition to brains, he is a former semi-pro soccer player, who is also going to pose a physical threat in the game.

    Fincher says that he is at his best during high pressure situations and times of complete chaos. He finds idiots or “unskilled” people amusing, and has no problem telling them to their face. John has traveled extensively in South America, Europe, South Africa, and Canada, and he plans to use his experience of dealing with people from diverse backgrounds to his best advantage.

    John is no stranger to creating conflict and thinks it could work to his advantage in the game. Although, John also believes his good looks and charm will help even out his aggressive personality, especially with the ladies. He also will not apologize living a privileged life and claims that he will party his way around the world with his winnings.

    John resides in Santa Monica, Calif. His birth date is August 16th.

    Too bad he is gorgeous AND has a big brain. There is nothing for him to be humble about. If he has also lived a "privileged" life, he could be a really big jerk. Sounds like he has a "charming" personality too. That all adds up to "hated" by the other guys, but attractive to some of the "silicone" sweeties.

    It will all come down to how well he can hide his arrogance.

    Wow! Gorgeous, smart, and from the sounds of things....an arrogant jerk. Hope I'm wrong, but given the fact that "He finds idiots or “unskilled” people amusing, and has no problem telling them to their face," I doubt it.

    Rocket scientists don't interact much with neurobiologists...

    But I'm sure they will meet on the reality TV interview circuit at some point. Sounds like too obviously an arrogant jerk to be friends with her though.

    Maybe he is making this personality up to get on the show?

    Isn't this our 2nd "rocket scientist"?

    Jeff called him a poser...

    Here is an article from the Orange County (CA) paper:

    UCI engineering grad to compete of CBS’ “Survivor” - College Life OC - OCRegister.com

    The latest season of CBS’s venerable show Survivor is underway on Samoa, and this year’s cast features John Fincher, who earned his degree in engineering at UC Irvine in 2006. (So far, it hasn’t helped him, so far as we can see.)

    CBS says the 25-year-old Fincher is a rocket scientist. I’m watching the show and can’t tell if the programmers were being accurate or ironic. I mean, it’s tough to earn an engineering degree at Irvine. But so far, Fincher is doing poorly. A competitor has already dismissed him as a pretty boy. Fincher did poorly in the swimming competition. And his plans for a hut mostly bored people.

    Fincher hasn’t even impressed ‘Shambo,” a former Marine who said, “All he’s doing is running his mouth.” He’s won immunity until next week, I think, but things aren’t looking good long-term.
    Gary Robbins, the writer, has even put up a poll on how long Fincher will last in the game.
