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


    From his official CBS Survivor: San Juan del Sur cast bio page (8/27/14):


    "Occupation: Singer, Actor, Writer
    Personal Claim to Fame: Writing and directing my first musical in London and being the first person in my family with a Master’s degree.
    Inspiration in Life: My dad. He has always treated my mother with respect and admiration and through selflessness has shown what marriage was intended to look like.
    Hobbies: Writing songs, going to the gym, Settlers of Catan, movies and going to the dog park with our dog.
    Pet Peeves: Idiots, loud Americans in foreign countries, most audition waiting rooms, people who will only see one side of an argument and many more.
    3 Words to Describe You: Confident, energetic and compassionate.
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Bible – the Scripture would help in dealing with difficult circumstances 2) Piano – so that I could write songs and sing. 3) iPod – life without music is just depressing
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: There hasn’t been any one like me. I’m going to pave my own way.
    Reason for Being on Survivor: After each episode I watch from home I say “I want to do that!” The challenges, the mind games, the pushing your body to its limits, it all get me so excited!
    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I can make fire, I’m very organized and detail focused which would help in numerous challenges. I’m also strong and have a lot of endurance.
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I have the stamina to make it through the challenges, I have the mental grit to get past the mind games and the gutsiness to make the big moves when they need to be made. I am Survivor.
    What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? I'm so excited that I get to play with Reed! This will be a memory that we will share for life. Having someone to go through this with who can help you find strength when you really need it will be invaluable in this game. I'll be stronger having Reed by my also helps that he's great to look at as well."
