    From his (and Candice's) pre-game interview with EW's Dalton Ross:


    "The former Candice Woodcock is back for a third go round (after Cook Islands and Heroes vs. Villains) and says she has no problem voting her husband off — under the right circumstances. 'If we decided that there was one person going to the end and we would want another person on the jury for a vote,' explains Candice, 'that would be a possible scenario that we would vote one or the other out. But other than that we're going to stay loyal.' Says John, 'I'm not going to be forced to write Candice's name down in a situation that we haven't already talked about. I mean, I've got to sleep next to this woman for the rest of my life, so I'm not going to do something stupid like that.' Adds Candice, 'Smart man.'"


    From his (and Candice's) official CBS bio page: (8/21/13)


    "Occupation: Physician, Army Orthopedic Surgery Resident
    Personal Claim to Fame: Being a West Point grad, graduating from Georgetown Medical School and training at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for my Orthopedic Surgery residency.
    Inspiration in Life: The Wounded Warriors that we care for at Walter Reed.
    Hobbies: Basketball, golf and working out.
    Pet Peeves: Slow thinkers, talkers and movers; people who eat paper; illogical, irrational and inflexible people; excuses; mouth breathers.
    3 Words to Describe You: Competitive, off-the-cuff, and loyal.
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) My wife – someone I can always trust! 2) My dogs – great listeners and never talk back. 3) Deck of cards – helps pass the time.
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I relate most to Mick and Marcus because of my profession. I also relate to Penner and Boston Rob, as smart family oriented guys who realize they have more to play for then just themselves.
    Reason for Being on SurvivorThis is one of the most intense, intellectual and physical challenges I can think of, and being able to play with Candice will make it that much more interesting and crazy!
    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: My work ethic, determination, outside-the-box thinking, flexibility and mental toughness.
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I have a well-rounded mix of athleticism, grit and social emotional intelligence.
    What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? This will be such an incredible experience and an awesome opportunity for us! How many people can say they’ve competed in a game for a million dollars with the love of their life? There’s nobody in this world I trust more than Candice and this will be a crazy story for us to tell our kids someday."
