    John - South Pacific



    Name (Age): John Cochran (24)
    Tribe designation: Savaii
    Current residence: Washington, D.C.
    Occupation: Harvard Law Student

    Personal claim to fame: I won the Dean’s Scholar Prize at Harvard Law for an essay I wrote on the “Survivor” jury system. It was one of the few times in my life where my personal interests and academic obligations coincided perfectly.

    Inspiration in life: My family.

    Hobbies: Guitar, trivia and studying the music and history of The Beatles.

    Pet peeves: People who think or act like they are smarter than they actually are and people who don’t have a sense of humor.

    3 words to describe you: Neurotic, insecure and brilliant.

    SURVIVOR contestant you are most like: I have some of the humor of Rob Cesternino, the candor of Jonathan Penner and the intelligence of Yul Kwon.

    Reason for being on SURVIVOR: My respect and admiration for “Survivor” and my desire to make it even better. My secondary motivation is to experience some adventure and excitement in my life during a time when I otherwise feel like I’m on autopilot.

    Why you think you’ll “survive” SURVIVOR: I have a strong sense of humor that can defuse tense situations and an ability to listen to conflicting viewpoints and devise a rational compromise that is satisfying to all parties involved. I also have a slender frame that doesn’t take up much space in a crowded shelter.

    Why you think you will be the sole SURVIVOR: I understand other people and how they function. Sure, I’m bright and have an extensive knowledge of “Survivor,” but none of that does any good unless you’re able to figure out the reasons why other people do the things they do. Not only can I do that, but I’m also confident that I can leverage their desires and motives in a way that best serves my game.

    I truly hope he isn't as irritating as he comes across. And how dare he invoke the name of my fave Mr. Penner. You are not worthy!

    I am getting a strong Ronnie from BB vibe from him. If he is truly that annoying, hopefully they will lose him quick.

    I don't know - there's something about him. He might just be smart enough to go far.

    He knows it isn't enough just to be smart...now whether he's as good as he thinks he is at reading/using people, we'll see. But he is right that that's the way to go if you aren't obviously physically very helpful to your team.
