Jeremy Collins - Bios
Survivor: San Juan del Sur

From his official CBS Survivor: San Juan del Sur cast bio page:

 

"Occupation: Cambridge Firefighter
Personal Claim to Fame: I am proud of making it to the professional indoor football league without playing college football.
Inspiration in Life: My mom because she helped raise seven children while my dad worked. I don’t know how she didn’t lose anyone and she fed and put clothes on our backs – not to mention the amount of laundry she had to do.
Hobbies: Basketball, working out, fantasy football and coaching my daughters.
Pet Peeves: One-uppers and know-it-alls.
3 Words to Describe You: Athletic, straight forward and smiley.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be? 1) Bracelet from my daughters 2) Pictures of my daughters 3) Picture of my mother
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I always liked JT and James but I think Tyson (the third time he played) is similar to how I would have played.
Reason for Being on Survivor: The million dollars but I also feel my personality, body type and mind set is perfect for this game.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I will help out around camp gathering wood for fires or shelter and getting coconuts. I will also be a monster at physical challenges.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I believe my whole make up is prime for this game. I don’t need to eat much, I am athletic and I am likeable. I also can make people feel like I like them even if I don’t which will help in blindsides.
What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? Playing with my loved one would be stressful and emotional. I know it is going to be tough out there and I will worry about my wife being hungry, cold and tired."
