    From's pre-game interview with Jeff Probst:

    "Jonas says: My strategy is no strategy. Think on your feet and go with the flow. I want to gain trust. But when I need to cut that (by lying) in order to further myself, I will do that.

    Jeff says: Jonas is very malleable. At some point, Jonas is going to have to say, 'This is my alliance, and I'm going stick with them and hope it works out.' Otherwise, people are going to see him as too soft or too nice and just cut him loose."


    From his official CBS bio page:

    "Personal Claim to Fame: Making a name for myself as a Sushi Chef two years after going bankrupt and losing everything.
    Inspiration in Life: My wife and children give me huge inspiration!
    Hobbies: Cooking, eating, vacationing with family and surfing.
    Pet Peeves: People that constantly complain.
    3 Words to Describe You: Passionate, determined and motivated.
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Fabio. I'm perceived as being very care free on the outside, but on the inside I'm an intense competitor.
    Reason for Being on Survivor: To prove to myself and family that I can do this and to win the prize, of course.
    Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: I know how to fish, make fire, shelter and cook amazing food.
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I believe I could be the final Survivor because I have a proven track record of doing what I set out to achieve. I can make fire, build shelter, cook and get along with people to win their votes."
