Leif Manson - Bio
Survivor: One World

From MSN.com's pre-game interview with Jeff Probst:

 

"Leif says: I'll be figuring out people, getting to know people and making solid connections and going from there. It helps to be observant. My eyesight isn't that great. Puzzles I'm really good at.

Jeff says: If Leif can just get in and survive a couple of [tribals], he'll be OK. He knows the game, he's smart, he's tough, he's physically fit and he's got a good attitude. If Leif is at all nervous or brings any attention to why he's different (because he's a little person), I think it might be a reason to get rid of him."

 

From his official CBS bio page (1/19/12):

 

"Personal Claim to Fame: Smoking the best turkey, roasts and meats for big family events. Also, meeting and working with Billy Barty and Mickey Rooney in the same day.
Inspiration in Life: My daughter, who I want to provide the best life for. My closest family and friends, who have been there for me when I fall, and pushed me higher when I succeed. My father-in-law, because he is a perfect role-model. Not only is he brilliant, selfless, dependable, but he is also patient and always willing to give great advice.
Hobbies: Paintballing, snowboarding and weight-lifting.
Pet Peeves: Being taken advantage of and back-stabbers.
3 Words to Describe You: Agile, adventurous and perseverant.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Fabio, because his wit and skills were misjudged and underestimated but he outplayed them all in the end.
Reason for Being on Survivor: To build my own self-confidence and to become more knowledgeable on what to "survive" truly means.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: I am knowledgeable about the wilderness; I can tell direction without a compass regardless of day or night. I can fish and build fire without using modern tools. I'm definitely a handy man and very physically fit and strong.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: Because I am beyond willing, ready and able to "outwit, outplay and outlast" all the others."
