Rick Nelson - Bio
  • S23 logo South Pacific bio

    Excerpts from his official CBS South Pacific bio page:

     

    "Personal claim to fame: My family and my ranch.

     

    Pet peeves: Quitters and lazy people who don’t keep their word.

     

    Survivor contestant you are most like: J.T. He played a great game and won. He is country, strong-willed, a great competitor, good to get along with, not a quitter and true to his word in the end. I’d like to think if you put 15 years on him, he would mirror me - except I’m better.

     

    Why you think you will be the sole Survivor: After applying 14 times, I am driven and very determined to win the game. I will stop at nothing!"
