Sizing Up the Survivors - First Impressions Part 2

(Part 1 can be found here for those who missed it.)

Moving on to the young men tribe, one can only hope that they bring the crazy.


It's never a good sign when your biography is very short. He is probably a very good athlete, being a former professional basketball player. But he's got an MBA and is a Yoga Instructor? Flighty comes to mind. Very likely an early boot.


A slightly longer bio than Aras, but still pretty short. He played Div I soccer in University, which brings me to a theme thus far - almost all of the contestants have been competitive athletes at one point in their lives. What's up with that?

He's a published author and is also a model. And his sister is currently Miss Teen USA (a very weak link to Misty...). I'd imagine he's going to be one of "those guys". You know, they get the boot kinda early on, and when you see them on the reunion special, you go "Oh yeah, he was on the show!"


Another shortish bio. At least he isn't a collegiate athlete.

He's probably going to be the amusing crazy guy in the start of the season. Here's his reason for wanting to participate in Survivor:

He wants to be on SURVIVOR so he can travel, learn about himself in a difficult situation and meet smart, beautiful women.

If you don't want to compete, you're going to get voted out soon. And while his meeting "smart, beautiful women" should be good for a laugh, eventually it's going to grow old. So he's going to be able to travel and learn about himself on the Loser's trips that occur for everybody who gets the boot pre-Jury.


Decent sized bio, which is good. He's a lawyer, so he should be able to use his ability to make arguments to solidify any alliances or votes. And he's got the touching back story about living in South Central and making the most of his life. He's going to be one of the stars of the show, regardless of where he ends up.

I'd put him in the final four. He might not have the athletic background, but with his personality and other skills, he's going to be a contender.

Next up: the older women.
