    From his official CBS Survivor: Kaoh Rong cast bio page: (1/20/16)


    "• Inspiration in Life: St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis, Tenn. Primarily deal with pediatric cancers, no child is denied treatment on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.

    Hobbies: Classic car restoration, hiking, backpacking in the mountains, and writing articles about military veterans for a local monthly magazine in Vero Beach, Fla.

    Pet Peeves: People who whine!

    3 Words to Describe You: Tenacious, daring and vigilant.

    If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? A comfortable chair, nice to sit down and rest, and an iPod with earphones to play my favorite music, “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu.

    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Tom Westman.

    Reason for Being on Survivor: At my age, I have the mental and physical fortitude to successfully compete for 39 days in whatever challenges I face, in addition to establishing and maintaining successful interpersonal connections with other tribal members. It’s all about the adventure, going to faraway exotic places and living in the mud.

    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I have the ability to build an “A” frame or a similar shelter with an elevated sleeping platform. I can start a fire with bamboo friction or eyeglass lenses, and prepare meals for fellow tribemates.

    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I’ve trained all my adult life for an ultimate challenge. This is it!"
