    Funny, he doesn't LOOK like a rocket scientist.

    He has kind of a Rob Mariano look to him - like he'll be the village idiot. But with his education, he could end up more like Shii Ann.

    Bless him. He doesn't look like a rocket scientist at all.
    He looks more like he sells fireworks.

    Perhaps he can use his look to his advantage if he doesn't have to reveal his occupation to his tribemates.

    Maybe that's exactly what he does - so he can be a "rocket scientist"

    You never know.
    There are all sorts of ways to interpret these things.

    I like the look of him though so hopefully i will like his personality when the show starts.

    Now, I've been doing a lot of research, looking for info on this guy. At 24, he can't possibly really be a rocket scientist. But, with a little further looking, there is a Dave Johnson in California, who is a talented model rocket builder, specializing in water rockets.

    Here's a link to one of his pages.

    So, would this make him basically a slacker who tinkers with rockets? That sounds plausible to me.

    OMG

    There was a man who played for the greatest football team ever, Liverpool, called David Johnson, so I find myself pre-disposed to like him for that dubious reason alone.

    I do that that's a fairly loose interpretation of the term rocket scientist though

    My boys have shot off smaller versions of those rockets . Fireworks isn't far off Fluff . Anything that makes a big bang .
    We have gone to a private club to see the even bigger ones get ignited.They are a pretty expensive hobby when you do get into the bigger rockets.
    So funny he would call himself a rocket scientist !
