Nick Maiorano - Bio

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


    "Personal Claim to Fame: I’ll always be a better listener than you. Meaning, I listen to people better than you do, I’m more interested in people than you are, and I accept people more than you do. And yes, sometimes I pretend to do these things, but at least I pretend, whereas you just check out and are narcissistic.

    Inspiration in Life: I didn’t have a hero last time I applied and still don’t. No human is a hero. I’m my own hero because I love the person I am.

    Hobbies: Writing, exercising and managing web projects.

    Pet Peeves: These aren’t necessarily pet peeves, but angry, loud and rude people who don’t know how to hold a conversation.

    3 Words to Describe You: Obsessive-compulsive, receptive and contrarian.

    If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? Alcohol. There’s nothing like a truth serum to give the other contestants. A picture of other contestant’s loved ones to negotiate with. A vacuum, so people think I’m dumber than they initially thought.

    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Courtney Yates and Jonathan Penner, personality wise. But I’m much more socially intelligent than they are.

    Reason for Being on Survivor: Winning a million dollars and showing the other contestants that signing up for my season of Survivor was a bad idea.

    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I’m athletic, but the most useful skill is my positive nature. Other members of the group will feed off my positive demeanor and remain upbeat or at least feel better once they have a conversation with me.

    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: It’s simple. I’m charismatic and manipulative. This isn’t something I’m proud to admit, but it’s true."
