    Mike Borassi - Survivor Samoa


    Mike Borassi

    Age: 62
    Hometown: Marina del Rey, Calif
    Occupation: Personal Chef

    This California transplant, originally from New York, will do or say anything to become the next SURVIVOR. After a career as a college football coach at Boston University in the 1970’s and over 30 years in the food industry, he currently works as a personal chef.

    Married without children, he enjoys gardening, reading, working out and spending time with friends. He is funny, dependable and quiet, yet, he is never afraid to tell it like it is. He can’t stand bad drivers, republicans or bigots and admits that the easiest way to make him angry is to move around his kitchen equipment.

    At 62 years old, he has been preparing for his experience on SURVIVOR by working out with a personal trainer on a daily basis and has lost over 30 pounds in preparation for his chance at the million dollar prize. A true SURVIVOR fan, he has watched every single episode from the very beginning and came close to being part of the cast last season. His strategy includes remaining cooperative and low-key so the “stupid, cocky ones self-destruct.” Rather than making aggressive moves, he plans to allow his leadership qualities to emerge naturally which may mask the fact that he can, at times, be competitive and almost predatory.

    Mike resides in Marina del Rey, Calif. and his birthday is March 13.

    When Spencer joined the Tocantins cast the day before filming it was Mike he was replacing.

    He can’t stand bad drivers, republicans or bigots . So I guess he can't stand himself because he's bigoted towards a whole group of people.

    He lost a lot of weight, yet somehow he didn't lose the growth hanging from his chin. Is it just me or a CBS descriptions a bit snarky this season? Predatory? That's not very nice.

    Ugh, what a freakin' hypocrite. I really hate when people bring politics up in the wrong place at the wrong time, which I consider he did when he was blabbering on about himself for his self-description.

    Our 2nd chef ("Shambo" is also one, and also one who lost a lot of weight for the show). Maybe they will be on different teams.
    Re his views, well he and the nice Russell can bond.
    Token old guy, probably an early boot. Jeff wasn't optimistic for him either.

    I like the fact that he has watched every single episode from the very beginning.

    I hope he covers up that danging hair when he cooks in the kitchen. Ugh.
