    CBS pre-game interview (with Jaclyn), from YouTube:



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

    "Occupation: Financial assistant
    Personal Claim to Fame: Winning a big 10 championship at Michigan State University.
    Inspiration in Life: My sister, Lara who has worked hard for everything she has and is an incredible role model. She inspires me to work hard and to appreciate things more. Seeing how hard she works to take care of her family reminds me how things aren't always as easy as we wish they were. She works harder than anyone I know.
    Hobbies: Working out, playing piano and researching wine.
    Pet Peeves: People with too many pet peeves.
    3 Words to Describe You: Outgoing, unpredictable and intuitive.
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Piano – to play and entertain myself and others 2) Football – for entertainment and to make friends 3) Wine – to get drunk – duh!
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Hayden. I feel my personality is a lot like his and he’s also an athlete that uses his head.
    Reason for Being on SurvivorThe experience and the competition. It’s unique and completely social which would be fun to experience.
    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SurvivorI can build a fire from scratch, debone/gut a fish, catch lizards and lift things up and put them down.
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I have very good social and physical skills. I can read people well and I’m good at telling them what they need to hear.
    What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? Playing with Jaclyn is an incredible opportunity. I've learned in the past that experiencing adversity with others can build the relationship you have together (if you do it correctly). Since there is no experience like that of Survivor, there's no telling the amount that can be gained by triumphing through the challenges that present themselves on a daily basis, let alone those found in treemail!"
