S24: Leif Manson
« on: January 18, 2012, 09:52:49 AM »

 
 
Name (Age): Leif Manson (27)
Tribe Designation: Manono
Current Residence: San Diego, Calif. 
Occupation: Phlebotomist
Personal Claim to Fame: Smoking the best turkey, roasts and meats for big family events. Also, meeting and working with Billy Barty and Mickey Rooney in the same day.
Inspiration in Life:  My daughter, who I want to provide the best life for. My closest family and friends, who have been there for me when I fall, and pushed me higher when I succeed. My father-in-law, because he is a perfect role-model. Not only is he brilliant, selfless, dependable, but he is also patient and always willing to give great advice.
Hobbies: Paintballing, snowboarding and weight-lifting.
Pet Peeves: Being taken advantage of and back-stabbers.
3 Words to Describe You: Agile, adventurous and perseverant.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Fabio, because his wit and skills were misjudged and underestimated but he outplayed them all in the end.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To build my own self-confidence and to become more knowledgeable on what to “survive” truly means.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I am knowledgeable about the wilderness; I can tell direction without a compass regardless of day or night. I can fish and build fire without using modern tools. I’m definitely a handy man and very physically fit and strong.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Because I am beyond willing, ready and able to “outwit, outplay and outlast” all the others.

Initial reaction: I like him and hope he makes it to the end. But I have concerns as usual with anyone with a disability/handicap it always becomes an issue with the other castaways. Unfortunately some of the others will probably bring up him being "vertically challenged" and think that will be a threat to win votes in the end, which is completely stupid and ignorant.  It will be interesting to see how well he performs in some of the challenges that are more physical. But if Charla can do it!

Edited after watching video & press interview: I like him. I don't have any high hopes whatsoever nor has my opinion changed after watching the video. I guess I'll just have to see how the others respond to him.

i'm positive it is pronounced Leaf. Same as Leif Ericson, who was the first European to discover North America.

Yes it is pronounced like Leaf.

A couple interesting tidbits that aren't in his profile, he is supposedly a magician as well and was featured on an episode of a short lived tv reality/game show called "Hole in the Wall" that aired on FOX, where teams of three had to jump through walls that had cut out poses and they had to match the pose while going through. He was on a team of dwarfs and they won. Also his wife was just on a recent episode of NBC's "Who's Still Standing." She was one of the participants on the outer ring.

Hole in the Wall!!! That was a funny concept for a show! :hearts:

Looking forward on how he'll play the game.  If he'll be villainous, I'll keep an eye on him even more.

There's just something about him in my mind, that he's going to be a villain this time round.

That would be cool to see him as the villain of the season. Kind of like Mini-me! Then when he votes people out or schemes against others, he can hold his pinky to his mouth and say "I'm just here for the 1 Meeeellllion dollars."  :ya3:

He was invisible in the previous episodes.

ETA: Even more invisible than Rick in S23. :lol:
