  • SNZ1 logo NZ: Nicaragua bio

    From Chris Schulz at the NZ Herald (4/27/17):

     

    "Who: Business analyst, 27, from Tauranga 
    Key attributes: 'I feel that I've got all the skills the winner of Survivor needs: physical, social, stamina, and mental strength.'
    Why he's a threat: 'I'm strategic, like big challenges, and like being pushed to my limit.'
    What makes him mad: Selfish people."
