    From MSN.com's pre-game interview with Jeff Probst:

    "Michael says: My goal is to befriend all the ladies, young or old. I have to be on their good side. First impressions, they might think I'm a dick (therefore they'll vote me off)

    Jeff says: Michael's going to go down as a villain. Straight out of the gate, he was stealing things from the women -- which is fun, funny, legal, and a great move, all good qualities. I don't know if he can be the likeable guy that says, 'I was just playing the game'' or if he's just an aggressive, just-strong-arms dude."


    From his official CBS bio page (1/19/12):

    "Inspiration in Life: My dad is my hero. He is the man I want to be like. I have learned so many great skills from him that I'll have for a lifetime.
    Hobbies: Working out, kayaking and soccer.
    Pet Peeves: Annoying eaters, bad breath, people who grunt while working out, and people that "need" a cigarette.
    3 Words to Describe You: A leader, ambitious and organized.
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: First, Ethan since he played a very clean game and did very well, and Rupert, because I speak my mind from my heart, not my head.
    Reason for Being on Survivor: It's my mom's dream (Survivor is her favorite show) for me to be on and win. Also, I see it as my chance to travel to a new part of the world.
    Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: I am a natural leader who knows when to keep my mouth shut. People always listen to my opinions and I am a hard worker. I am very much a people person and with all the back-stabbing that goes on with Survivor, I don't see it happening to me.
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I am a very driven person and can usually get what I want. I am a natural leader but will gladly step aside to take the spotlight off of me. I am also a very persuasive person who has learned to keep your enemies close so that it's easier to control and predict their movements. I am unstoppable!!"
