"Mark Anthony says: Everybody needs a daddy. I'll be everybody's daddy
Jeff says: He's excitable."
From his EW.com new contestant picture caption (by Dalton Ross):
"'I call myself Daddy Bear,' says the openly gay former NYPD morgue detective. 'I'm older, wiser, and cuter, I guess. No, I'm kidding. I'm not cuter.' One thing he's not kidding about, however, is which two former players he'd like to see return this season. 'I would like to see Jane. And I know people may not like hearing this, but I like Russell. I do! I just like him! I worked in the New York City police department for 20 years. There's a thousand Russels.'"
Excerpts from his official CBS Survivor: South Pacificbio page (8/22/11):
"Personal claim to fame: I was a NYPD Morgue Detective for 20 years and I retired with honors from the mayor and police commissioner.
Inspiration in life: My deceased Aunt Mary, who brought us to her home, raised us and gave us a great life.
Pet peeves: Know-it-alls and people with “I am better than you” attitudes.
3 words to describe you: Funny, sarcastic and lovable.
Why you think you will be the sole Survivor: People tend to like me because I am an honest person even though I am sarcastic and an “in your face” man. I am considered a real person heart, mind and soul."
