    From his EW photo caption:

    "In what sounds like a plot twist straight out of Xanadu, Phillip was recruited for the show when casting director Lynne Spillman saw him rollerdancing. Philip considers Rupert, Coach, and Boston Rob his favorite players, and insists that being one of twelve siblings will help him get along with large groups in the game. And while he's excited about playing, there is one thing he is not looking forward to about the experience. 'Well, to be candid about it, defecating in an environment where other people could potentially see you or there might be a camera catching you — that's not too exciting.' (For anyone.)"


    From his official CBS bio page (1/11/11):

    "Personal Claim to Fame: Being a father to my son and being able to take risks in life. I say 'yes' when others may say 'no.'
    Inspiration in Life: Medical Professionals - they save lives in real time.
    Hobbies: Chess, basketball, skating and sport training with weights.
    Pet Peeves: People who think they know everything and yet do nothing and watch others do the work.
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I am my own man!
    Reason for being on Survivor: I love the idea of competing and proving I still have what it takes to prevail in new challenges that are completely outside my normal everyday life.
    Why you think you'll 'survive' Survivor: I come from a large family (12 brothers and sisters), and as such I've become a creative problem-solver and good talker in stressful situations where others would give up.
    Why you think you will be the sole Survivor: I am a go-getter. As a former Special Agent with the former Defense Investigation Services, I honed my interview and investigative skills to persevere when others are being evasive or less than forthcoming."
