If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) A map to explore and then mark where I’ve been 2) A book that explains what I can or cannot eat 3) Toilet paper
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Big Tom…I have to side with a farmer!
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To spend time with my daughter on a new adventure and the challenge of seeing how far I can go in the game.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’m a self-starter that can get along with most anyone. I work hard and I am very good at using my hands. I’ve built homes, repaired all sorts of equipment and I am not afraid of hard work or getting dirty.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: All my life I have been faced with everything possible; weather, breakdowns, etc. My family and I can usually find a way to improvise a way to survive and still be able to achieve my goals.
What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? To be given the opportunity to play this game with my daughter is almost indescribable. I am looking forward to being able to watch her in settings that I may not get to see again and hopefully watch her excel in them. I’ll have to move past the image of her being my “little girl” to her having grown into a confident proud woman, one that can handle herself in any situation that life can throw at her, and know that she will come out on top, or at the least, throw some “mean punches” on the way as she will never quit trying, no matter what. I think we will build a deeper and stronger bond together after playing Survivor.
