Jeremy Collins - Bios

    From his official CBS Survivor: San Juan del Sur cast bio page:


    "Occupation: Cambridge Firefighter
    Personal Claim to Fame: I am proud of making it to the professional indoor football league without playing college football.
    Inspiration in Life: My mom because she helped raise seven children while my dad worked. I don’t know how she didn’t lose anyone and she fed and put clothes on our backs – not to mention the amount of laundry she had to do.
    Hobbies: Basketball, working out, fantasy football and coaching my daughters.
    Pet Peeves: One-uppers and know-it-alls.
    3 Words to Describe You: Athletic, straight forward and smiley.
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be? 1) Bracelet from my daughters 2) Pictures of my daughters 3) Picture of my mother
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I always liked JT and James but I think Tyson (the third time he played) is similar to how I would have played.
    Reason for Being on Survivor: The million dollars but I also feel my personality, body type and mind set is perfect for this game.
    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I will help out around camp gathering wood for fires or shelter and getting coconuts. I will also be a monster at physical challenges.
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I believe my whole make up is prime for this game. I don’t need to eat much, I am athletic and I am likeable. I also can make people feel like I like them even if I don’t which will help in blindsides.
    What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? Playing with my loved one would be stressful and emotional. I know it is going to be tough out there and I will worry about my wife being hungry, cold and tired."

    Excerpts from his official CBS Survivor: Winners at War cast bio page (1/15/20):


    "Hobbies: Coaching my kids, working out, playing basketball, and fantasy football.


    Do you still watch Survivor?

    Every episode. I am a casual watcher now, it used to consume me and I would take notes on every episode.


    Who is your inspiration in life?

    My family. I want my kids to grow up looking up to me and being proud to call me dad.


    What does Survivor mean to you and your family?

    It is the only show on television that is suitable and entertaining for everyone in the family. Survivor night is a chance for the family to slow down a hectic schedule and just hang out for one night.


    What is one way playing Survivor changed your life?

    Emotionally—it brought me closer to my wife and kids. When you miss the ones you love, you appreciate them more. Financially—it helped me put away for my children's future.


    As Survivor approaches Season 40 and celebrates 20 years on television, what does it mean to be a part of the legacy?

    I'm in awe that I am considered for such a monumental season. After Season 31, I pulled away from being a super fan and just enjoyed the show as a casual viewer but the thought of going out there for the GREATEST SEASON EVER gives me chills and I want to cement my name as one of the greats.


    How will you play differently than you have in your past seasons?

    Let's just throw out my Season 29 performance... that never happened. I will look to add to my Season 31 game plan. I will keep my meat shields but I will add mind shields and social shields to give me a broader pool of players to align myself with. With this broader pool, I will continue with voting blocks and keep alliance paranoia on 100! I want to take it all in. I feel my last experience was a whirlwind and I forget a lot of experiences. This time I want to try and take some time to enjoy this last go-round."
