S28: Garrett Adelstein (Brains)
« on: January 22, 2014, 12:44:08 PM »
Garrett Adelstein


Garrett Adelstein                                                 


Name (Age): Garrett Adelstein (27)
Tribe Designation: Brains Tribe
Current Residence: Santa Monica, California. Born, raised and went to college at The University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona.
Occupation: Pro Poker Player
Personal Claim to Fame: Being valedictorian of my high school class of over 500 students; graduating Summa Cum Laude with Honors at The University of Arizona.
Inspiration in Life: No specific inspirations. I try and model my life after people who are willing to dedicate their lives to a skill and thus excel at the highest level in that field.
Hobbies: Bodybuilding, alcohol, psychology and cinema.
Pet Peeves: Dishonesty and lack of ambition.
3 Words to Describe You: Competitive, ambitious and confident.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? One big picture of all the people closest to me in my life to prevent loneliness, one long chain email between myself and my four best friends for endless hilarity, and a naked picture of a girl I enjoy hooking up with, in case all the attractive girls get voted off early.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: Win enough money to impress girls in LA; self-growth as I will be forced to deal with extreme circumstances in a way I never imagined possible.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: Being a math guy, I'm just gonna go with the odds on this one as it would be statistically unlikely for me to be the first American survivor to die on the island. With that said, I'm sure I will be completely miserable.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Dedicated 2,000 hours in preparing for the strategic, social and physical elements of Survivor. Did everything from 50 hours of yoga, to over-analyzing every episode, to mastering slide puzzles to ready myself. I essentially devoted my entire life to preparing for this adventure for the previous 6 months.
Do You Consider Yourself a Brain, a Beauty or a Brawn and Why? I'll go with the modest answer and say all three. I'll probably be one of the physically strongest, most intelligent and my mom says I'm very handsome to boot.
Who Do You Think Has the Best Chance in the Game of Survivor: Brains, Beauty or Brawn and Why? If I'm forced to stereotype, I would say either the Brains or the Beauties. Survivor is first and foremost a game of strategy, so the Brains, which are the most logically inclined, are in the best position there. But people aren't going to give you a million dollars if they don't like you, so you can't count the Beauties out.

The token "too sexy for TV" guy this season. Definitely going far, and he's in BRAINS? He can fit into Brawn and Beauty easily! Definitely one of the few who possess all three factor this season.

Either people are going to be really jealous and boot him, OR he's going to be really good with his social game and manipulate his way into various alliances. I'm rooting for him... as of now.

+ he's a professional poker player, thus I think he will have enough smarts to manipulate his way through the game..

But look at his team mates. ZOMG. :funny:

Shocked that he wasn't placed in another tribe actually.

He's a valedictorian though... that will be enough to place him in Brains. AND, he's just typically a high flyer in life I guess.

To me there seems to be no question as to what tribe he should've been placed in. A poker player screams brains to me!

Garrett's also my favourite male of the cast. :wohoo: I mean, I loved loved loved dem pokah playuhs on TAR15, so I'm really excited Jean Robert (whom, sadly, I didn't like at all :lol:) will have a great proceeder! :hearts:
By the way he's so ambitious! :o Like, so much preparation for the show, it's insane! And I also love his (application?) answers, he's so genuine and honest and hilarious, gotta make for good TV!  :hrt:

Anyway, I'm going crazy over half the cast this year :D

Legitimately my fave of the cast. I LOVE poker players on RTV, (best example is Maria & Tiffany, who I consider one of the best F/F teams EVER :P <3) and I hope he goes far   :hrt:

My gut says he could win TBH. But I could also see him being a late juror and/or removed because he's a threat. I'm curious to see it play out. :P

After watching how he just burned after the IC (he sure doesn't deserve to go because J'Tia is a hot mess at the IC), I don't think he's really robbed but kinda dug his own grave. He just kept digging deeper and deeper.

Omg, he was one of my favourite people pre-season  :groan: But he was really just a douche on show, so into himself and... delusional.
Oh God, I thought this poker dude was gonna be smarter, I really don't feel sad for him at all, 'cause he made himself get voted out.

Though that James Clement moment has got to be embarrassing, omg such a bummer :funny:


P.S. but actually if they ever did a second-chance type of season with early boots, I'd totally like to see him get a another shot!
