  1. What are you bringing to season 9:
    Approachability, flexibility and an open mind and heart. I brought none of this to my previous season as I played a solid physical game and thought that would get me by.
     
  2. Why are you back?
     I feel I can play a better social and strategic game and only go full out on a physical side towards the end of the game.

     Harder play. 
     
  2. Why are you back?
    This season, I want to focus on my gameplay. This is important to me because I want to get further in the game than my last season and, hopefully, through my flexible strategy, make it to merge.

  •  Survivor nickname: None
  • Previous season: Survivor South Africa: Champions S5
  • Total days in the game: Nine days
  • Total team challenges won: Six
  • Total individual challenges won: None
  • Total tribal councils attended: Three
  • Total votes received: 10
  • Total idols found: One
  1. What are you bringing to season 9:
     I want to create authentic relationships with people to have trust-based alliances.
     
  2. Why are you back?
    In season 5, I was typecast as a “weak” player by our team Captain, Corne Krige, and immediately targeted by my tribe. 

    I expect to be underestimated as, in my last season, I was pegged from the get-go as a weak player by sports superhero Corne Krige. 

    In season 5, I blundered an idol in a flip-flop alliance. Due to this, I was waved off the game with a pair of stinky underpants in my face! I’ve been waiting eight years to redeem myself, and I am coming back with a vengeance, fire in my heart and a strong mental game. I’m not going to surrender to anyone. I am here to win.

    I am going to try to speak less and make more genuine friendships. Work hard around camp and try to show my value as a non-threat player.
