Occupation: Guitarist
Personal Claim to Fame: Street Corner Confessional, the band I play in, has sold 10,000 copies of our first album in 3 months.
Inspiration in Life: Robby, our former drummer. He started the band and supported us until he past away from cancer. He's the reason I still play to this day.
Hobbies: Writing new music, hanging out with friends, reading.
Pet Peeves: Slobs, pretentious people, chewing food with your mouth open.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) My guitar, it's practically an extension of myself, 2) A good book, 3) Someone important. They get rescued quicker.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I share the same head-banging interests of Billy from Cook Islands, but I want to play like Fabio from Nicaragua and dude my way to the end.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: The money. The money. The money!
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: Starving and not bathing for 39 days doesn't seem THAT bad. I know I can make it to the end based off of my body's limits.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I'm calm enough to sit back and let the 'threats' knock each other out. Then I come in and turn on the jets and show them who really runs the show physically and mentally.

Survivor: Mongolia

Benjamin was one of the twenty people chosen to participate in Survivor: Mongolia. Throughout his time in the game, Benjamin was very quiet and reserved. He never established himself in an alliance, but did form a bond with Heather Williams when they were put on the Manlai tribe. As the two shared life stories with one another on Day 12, Melissa Edwards became more and more annoyed and asked them to cease their conversation. Benjamin had no problem with dropping the talk, but Heather took exception and an argument followed afterwards. After Manlai lost the Day 16 reward challenge, Benjamin was picked to be on the Sevrei tribe and suddenly outnumbered by the original members of the red tribe 4-3. Feeling vulnerable, he pleaded to Scott Colston that Melissa was the rotten egg of the bunch and needed to go before himself and Jake Robinson. Scott, however, turned the tables on him as he recruited Melissa and Jake to vote him out in a 4-2-1 vote.
