Official CBS.com Survivor: Samoa bio
page excerpts (8/27/09):
"Proud womanizer, Erik claims that he can date four to five
women at the same time without any issues. He has no qualms
about chasing after a taken woman (as long as she is not
married) just for the fun of the chase. He says,
“There’s nothing sweeter than taking another
man’s goods.” His top hobby is skirt chasing.
Even though he can be found chasing multiple women at once,
he says that he does have a special female in his life
… his dog, Adrian.
Erik holds two degrees from Pepperdine University in
Psychology and Sociology but has chosen a career as a
bartender. When asked why he has chosen that specific career
route, he explains that he likes waking up around 10:00 a.m.
and running on the beach instead of being stuck
pencil-pushing in a cubicle. He says that he enjoys life
while the “sell-outs” do not.
He greatly admires his father because he has sacrificed
everything in life for him. In raising him, Erik observed
his father’s mental and physical strength as well as
endurance for raising an active boy. He feels that his
father’s example has provided him with tools that will
help him win this game. In addition to his father’s
influence, Erik is self-motivated by his competitive nature
and desire to prove to himself that he has what it takes to
be the next Sole Survivor.
Currently, Erik resides in Los Angeles, Calif. His birth
date is April 13th."
