Paul Pires is a contestant from Survivor: Terra Nova.


Paul is a veteran Homicide Detective who has investigated a number of grisly murders in his day. Paul, who was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts, has spent his entire adult life living in Fall River, Massachusetts.

Paul does not plan on revealing that he is a Detective because he feels as if that would put a huge target on his back. He does believe that being a Detective will be an asset to his game because it will help him read people better. Paul currently lives in Fall River, Massachusetts with his wife Anna who he has been married to for thirty-three years. Paul and Anna have two sons Paul Jr. and Jason and four grandchildren.

Paul’s reason for being on Survivor is:

The simple fact of the matter is I think it will be fun. I just hope I can say that after thirty-nine days.
