    Excerpts from Benji's official bio page (7/31/18):

     

    "Even though Benji refers to himself as the happiest person you will ever meet, he plans to be anything but a pushover on Survivor

    “I want to be a heroic villain. There is no likeable hero who can coast all the way to the end and win with loyalty and mateship. In order to win, you need to play a strategic game. 

    “I am going to be extremely likeable and perform well in challenges for my tribe but hidden behind my high performance and fun, goofy exterior will be some very villainous moves. The best way to ensure you are safe is to cause chaos in another section of camp. Just because I will do anything to achieve that won’t necessarily make me a heartless villain, I will just be a great game player.” 

    Highly intelligent and competitive, Benji says he is a self-made millionaire working in some of the biggest places in the world from New York to Brazil. One to take chances, he moved to Brazil on a one-way flight and found out quickly that he needed to make some money. 

    “I hustled. I immediately took on four different jobs, learnt algorithms and went onto become a bestselling author by paying other people to write books for me then used my marketing skills to sell them under my name. I even booked speaking gigs at universities in the US. I’ve never looked back and now run multiple businesses that bring in over one million dollars, just four years later.” 

    Playing to win, Benji wants to take out the prize not only to prove he can but to help a charity that he founded called 10 Million Meals. “I will feed two million kids, I am determined to and winning the money would be a huge help towards that. I can and will win Survivor!”"
