Albert Destrade - Bio
Survivor: South Pacific

Excerpts from his official CBS South Pacific bio page:


"Personal claim to fame: I hit my first college home run off of a guy that was a 1st round draft pick. 


Pet peeves: I have little to no patience for ignorance. People who are uninformed about something, yet insist to be opinionated about it, really irritate me. I also get bothered by mentally weak people.


Survivor contestant you are most like: I really like how J.T. managed to forge himself as a leader on Season 18 without being overbearing or bossy whatsoever. He commanded respect and led by example. 


Why you think you will be the sole Survivor: I know that I possess a unique combination of attributes that would make me a favorite in this game. I’m athletic and very socially adept. I’m calculated and self-aware. Ultimately, if you combine my awareness, physical strength and social calibration, I bring a lot to the table."
