Dan Foley - Bios

    From his official CBS Survivor: Worlds Apart cast bio page:


    "Personal Claim to Fame: I had a terrible fear of heights so I faced it head on. I went on my first airplane ride…and jumped out at 13,000 feet. Heights don’t really bother me anymore.
    Inspiration in Life: My Dad, Phil Foley. Now that I am an adult, I look back on the things my Dad did for my family (my siblings, my mom and myself) and I realize what kind of sacrifices he made for us. Having been one of the four kids that my parents adopted, I acknowledge even more the love that he gave all of us growing up and continues to give every day.
    Hobbies: Anything with my wife, Erin, disc golf and working on my properties.
    What is your favorite sport? If I’m watching, Football, and if I’m playing, disc golf.
    Pet Peeves: People who drive too slow in the fast lane and won’t get out of the way.
    3 Words to Describe You: Opinionated, adventurous and gregarious.
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1. A deck of cards to help pass the time 2. A picture of my family to remind me of what’s waiting for me 3. Some disc golf discs to help bond with my tribe mates and to possibly use to hunt
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I think I have Stephenie’s competitive spirit, Tony’s cunning and scheming gameplay, and Rupert’s strength, love of family and stunning good looks. 
    Reason for Being on Survivor: To claim my rightful place amongst the elite winners of Survivor! Second, to challenge myself in the greatest psychological and sociological challenge ever!
    Why You’ll “Survive” Survivor: Obviously, any challenge that involves a lot of running will not be in my “wheelhouse,” but anything involving gross food eating, strength, swimming, puzzles or balance, I’ll be in it to the end. As for the social game, I am a world class “schmooze” artist. I can charm my way out of almost anything.
    Why Will You Be the Sole Survivor: As a landlord, I am excellent at reading people and controlling some pretty out of control situations. As an Irishman, I have a glorious stubborn streak and I hate to lose. As a technician, I have a very analytical mind so I’ll be great at puzzles. I’m also very good with my hands so I’ll be a big help around camp. I am the entire package. Also, I am not above taking the rules of fair play in a spirited competition and grinding them to dust beneath my heel."
