Harvard law student, alumnus from ''South Pacific'' (eliminated at 8th place), and a player for Bikal. Once known in his first outing as an antisocial nerd, who'd get votes for each of Savaii's tribal councils, this time he showed a better, if not excellent, gameplay, for which he was rewarded with winning ''Caramoan'' -- and in the process becoming the second Sole Survivor going into the finals without a single vote cast against him ''and'' the third to win via a unanimous vote.

* BerserkButton: It seems to boil down to "[[IWantToBeARealMan threats to his manhood]]". He'd been having trouble with Phillip's condescending attitude for a while, but his blowup was specifically triggered by Phillip lasting longer in the Reward Challenge and claiming most of the credit for the win, and then hearing from Andrea that Phillip also seemed to be calling the shots on who stays and goes in the tribe.
