    Official CBS David vs. Goliath bio excerpts (9/5/18):

     

    "Hobbies: Travel, wine enthusiast, and water sports.

     

    Pet peeves: I'm impatient with bigots.

     

    What's your personal claim to fame?  I've accomplished a lot in my career and was able to make a lot of movies.

     

    Who or what is your inspiration in life? I think of George Plimpton, a great writer who also wanted to experience the things he was writing about. He was fearless, inquisitive and enlightened.

     

    If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why?  An eye mask to sleep. A good book; something fat. A SeaBob for the ocean!

     

    Which Survivor contestant are you most like?  Johnathan Penner was a good storyteller and Rob from Amazon had a good read on people.

     

    What's your reason for being on Survivor? My primary motivation is playing the game. I've always, always wanted to play and see how I would do. Secondary is the absurd challenge of it all."
