    Phillip Sheppard - Redemption Island




    Name (Age): Phillip Sheppard (52)
    Tribe Designation: Ometepe
    Current Residence: Santa Monica, Calif.
    Occupation: Technology Executive
    Personal Claim to Fame: Being a father to my son and being able to take risks in life. I say "yes" when others may say "no."
    Inspiration in Life: Medical Professionals - they save lives in real time.
    Hobbies: Chess, basketball, skating and sport training with weights.
    Pet Peeves: People who think they know everything and yet do nothing and watch others do the work.
    3 Words to Describe You: Outgoing, articulate and determined.
    SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I am my own man!
    Reason for being on SURVIVOR: I love the idea of competing and proving I still have what it takes to prevail in new challenges that are completely outside my normal everyday life.
    Why you think you'll "survive" SURVIVOR: I come from a large family (12 brothers and sisters), and as such I've become a creative problem-solver and good talker in stressful situations where others would give up.
    Why you think you will be the sole SURVIVOR: I am a go-getter. As a former Special Agent with the former Defense Investigation Services, I honed my interview and investigative skills to persevere when others are being evasive or less than forthcoming.

    12 brothers and sisters? He should be able to deal with being in a tribe fairly well.

    On a side note, it seems like there are lots of older (30s and up) I like that. It gets boring when it is nothing but young punks with the token older player.
    He who laughs last thinks slowest

    Maybe we should chug on over to namby pamby land where we can find some self confidence for you, you jackwagon!

    I have a bad feeling this guy will be an early-mid boot, though he seems like he could bring a dimension to the game with his Defense Investigation Services background. If he tells anyone about that though, he's history.

    I think it will make him one of the more interesting players to watch.

    His profile is diverse and interesting. It indicates a lot of skills that could be helpful in a Survivor game.

    I am still from last night's tribal council. The best TC I can remember in Survivor history--for me at least.
    I could not understand why the subtitle of Former Special Agent with a ? next to it came up. The ? had me until I did a little exploring.
    From what I was able to come up with Phillip was a Specialist 4 in the Army for 4 yrs and then discharged.
    From 1986-1989 (3 yrs), he worked with the Defense Security Service (DSS).
    From 1989 to present he has been working in various roles with different software companies in ITS.

    I guess my favorite line of his describing his specialties: "Getting to YES win no appears to be the answer. The Closer..."
    He sees himself as a male Brenda Leigh Johnson?
    So I guess this explains the "?" under his name.

    Truth is stranger than fiction.

    A dr. asked me: Does anyone in your family suffer from mental illness? My answer: No they all enjoy it immensely.

    Dear Phillip,

    Regardless of how Survivor 22 plays out, you're earned a spot in Survivor history. You single-handedly created and won the Most Outrageous First Tribal Council Award!

    While I don't expect to see you make the merge, please be assured we'll never forget you. Nope, never.

    You made Francesca's eyes spin like this --->

    He is definitely not how I thought he was going to be - what a nut! Outing your alliance, the idol, everything during your first tribal. He's a loose cannon, but he sure made that first show fun to watch.

    Instead of likening himself to being a "closer" maybe he should liken himself to putting clothes on.
