    Alan Ball - Survivor 35 Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers



    Biography
    Age: 31
    Hometown: Detroit, Mich.
    Current Residence: Houston, Texas
    Occupation: NFL Player

    Hobbies: Golf, scuba diving, and riding my motorcycle.

    Pet peeves: I can't stand liars or people who feel entitled. I also can't do clutter and people who don't clean up after themselves.

    Three words to describe you: Intelligent, athletic, and clever.

    What's your personal claim to fame?
    Being a seventh round draft pick and grinding for nine years in the NFL.

    Who or what is your inspiration in life?
    My parents. They are my best friends. I respect the both for their work ethic, and everything they instilled in me. My parents have been married for 30+ years and I know that takes work.

    If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
    Hot sauce because it makes everything better, a picture of my wife because sometimes just looking at her changes my mood, and baby wipes!

    Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
    I honestly don't think you will see gameplay like mine; one of the only things I have in common with people on past seasons is there was a winner.

    What's your reason for being on Survivor?
    Playing football has fed my drive to compete physically for a long time. Of course there are mental aspects but I feel like this is competing mentally, physically, and strategically. I also want to win on my own merit—no coaches, no practice—just me winning outside of something I've done for years.

    Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
    Everything I've accomplished I've had to scratch and claw at it. I've never been given anything or put in situations to succeed. My life has always been about proving people wrong and I feed on that, here is another shot.

    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Wouldn't survive Big Brother, that's for sure.

    Not a fan. Bit to fond of himself.

    Not a fan either. "I don't think you will see gameplay like mine." Please. I think he might be an early boot.
    "In spite of all the temptation you have endured, all the suffering, you remain pure of heart, just as pure as you were at the age of eleven, when you stared into a mirror that reflected your heart's desire, and it showed you only the way to thwart Lord Voldemort, and not immortality or riches."

    Interesting. . . I am generally not a fan of the pro athletes on Survivor. And as soon as I saw that I was ugh. But by the end I was smiling. Interesting I had such a different read. Of course, I tend to often make bad reads from bios, so I could be very wrong and end up hating him, but I like him so far.

    Exactly! LOL

    And in what way is this guy a hero? Sounds more like a hustler - I really do mean that in Probt's positive definition of a hard worker. I would believe he worked hard to get where he is in the NFL.

    I was thinking the same thing, "if only there was a tribe whose name was a synonym for 'people who run fast.'"
