Adam Parkin - Bio

Official Ten SurvivorAU: 2017 bio excerpts (July, 2017):

"At over 198cm tall and an international poker player, award-winning salesman and ex-SES volunteer, Adam is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to research, planning and strategy.

Also a dedicated, note-taking super fan of Survivor, Adam is ready to hit the island running.

“I can’t wait for Jonathan to say the words, ‘Welcome to Australian Survivor’. I don’t plan on winning the game, I plan on dominating the game and being a player to remember,” he said.

“I have watched and studied this game. I plan on leaving my moral compass back in Australia and doing the fans of the best game in the world – and the entire Survivor franchise proud – by playing the game as a game, not as a competition to find Australia’s most honourable citizen.”

As an SES volunteer, Adam has helped with search and rescue operations and has learned to find small clues in the bush. He plans to use these skills to search for hidden immunity idols. He has also researched previous seasons of the game, taking notes on plays and moves and even looked at where immunity idols have been hidden in the past, to give him ideas on where to look.

A born salesman, Adam has won multiple awards for his small businesses and taught sales courses while also winning over 40 poker tournaments in Australia. He played in the World Series in Las Vegas last year.

“My strategic mindset, ability to read people and situations, adapt to changing situations and think on my feet are all skills that are going to help me on the island. I’ve played poker tournaments where I have to outlast, outplay and outwit thousands to win the game.”

It is not all about ruthless game-playing for Adam. He is also a married father of two who says his family is his world and that they will be devastated without him.

“I am Mr Mum. I spend all week with the kids, doing the school and kindy drop-offs and pick-ups, helping at soccer practice and games around school.”"
