    Excerpts from his Survivor: Philippines bio page: (8/22/12)


    "Personal Claim to Fame: Graduating college while running all four years. 
    Inspiration in Life: My dad. I see what he has done for me! The guy has a heart of a champ! 
    Hobbies: Surfing, running and eating meals with friends. 
    Pet Peeves: Laziness! 
    3 Words to Describe You: Ambitious, inspiring (I’m a dreamer) and lighthearted. 
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why?
    1) Journal - to document my thoughts.
    2) A rope swing - because a rope swing on your own private island....doesn’t get much cooler than that..
    3) My mom - she would dominate! 
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I want to play in challenges with a lot of heart like Ozzy did, but I think I have a personality that is more similar to Erik Reichenbach or Fabio. 
    Reason for Being on Survivor: Glory! All the people in my generation who say, 'oh… I could win that show…' I say, 'put up or shut up.' Including me. 
    Why You Think You’ll 'Survive' Survivor: I bring people together and make them laugh. That’s important. I’m a leader, and I’m probably one of the best tree climbers. 
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: People enjoy me. I’m competitive but down to earth. I won’t slack off and I’m physically built like a lot of past winners."


    From his pre-game interview, by Dalton Ross:

    "'I will win Survivor because I will not underestimate anyone,' says Carter. And while the 23-year-old may be underestimated himself due to his Jeff Spicoli vibe, the running coach's conditioning and social game makes him a viable threat to win. It's no surprise that he counts Ozzy as his Survivor idol. 'I told myself I want to get on that show and do what he did. And I know those are big shoes to fill, but I want to get out there and try my hardest.'"
