Why do you think you’ll “survive” Survivor? I am an elite athlete. I would win many challenges and would be a great asset to the team. I was born and lived in rural Vietnam until I was 9 years old so my natural survival skills are impeccable. I’ve sold cars for a living and can convince people of what they want and need.
Being a fighter, I’m a great strategist. Before a fight, besides the physical training, we watch and study film on our opponents to assess and strategize how to defeat them. Most of all, I am adaptable.

Why do you think you’ll “survive” Survivor? I will be liked and needed by all especially at the beginning, the provider role. I will develop relationships with unlikely people and help bring cultures and ages together. I will be competitive in challenges. I am strong and don’t quit. I didn’t quit through my season of depression. Just kept putting one foot in front of the other. Didn’t rely on feelings, but logic.
I defend people and injustices. People talk to me because I am trustworthy. I have watched enough of the game to know how it is played, but not so fanatic about it that I am a geek. I just LOVE the show. I love strategy and don’t mind cutting ties if it benefits me, even if it is hard. I have moved all over the planet and it all worked out.

Why do you think you’ll “survive” Survivor? I understand how packs work. As a Siberian husky breeder, I know that in order to gain the trust of my pups, I have to feed them. I’m a skilled fisherman so as soon as I can get in the water to catch fish for my tribe, I will earn their trust.
I also build doghouses and construct kennels for my pups and with my tribe, this would be no different. Creating new innovative, comforting types of shelter will show me as an asset.
Lastly, with my pack, I have to be stern with them. I will mingle with the entire tribe, not just a few to show my sociability while also being assertive with them when it’s time to put my foot down.

I will vote off people but my relationships with them would be real. I am a very loyal, honest person, so I would try not to backstab people, but it’s a game and I want to win.
