(Age): Malcolm Freberg (25)
Residence: Hermosa Beach, Calif.
Claim to Fame: In college, I helped to
organize and run a program that paired varsity
athletes with underprivileged children in a
free-to-join sports league. It still exists today.
in Life: O.J. Simpson, before the legal
drama. When he was a kid, he had rickets. For his
birthday, when he was still young, his father took
him to a signing to meet Jim Brown, and O.J.
hobbled right up to him and told him he was going
to break all his records, which he eventually did.
Iím a sucker for underdog stories.
Exercising, writing/reading and partying.
Peeves: Dumb people.
Words to Describe You: Charming, brilliant
You Could Have Three Things on The Island, What
Would They Be and Why?
ties Ė I canít see anything without them.
of puzzles Ė Your mind is a muscle and needs
to be kept in shape.
Ė to unwind after a hard day of challenge
domination and competitor manipulation.
Contestant You Are Most Like: I think I
will play most like Russell. You can control and
rule with an iron first. You just have to be
clever enough for them to thank you for it in the
end. Iíll run the show from Day 1 until Iím
handed an oversized check with my name on it.
Reason for Being
on SURVIVOR: Iíve been watching Survivor
since I was 12 years old. Some kids grow up
watching baseball on TV and dream of getting their
chance to play in the big leagues. I grew up
watching and dreaming about playing Survivor.
You Think Youíll "Survive" SURVIVOR:
Iím smart, Iím athletic and Iím nice to look
You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Thereís
no reason to play the game if youíre not playing
to win. Iím not trying to see Ďif I have what
it takesí or Ďhow far I can make it.í The
best thing I have going for me is my
single-mindedness to be the champion.
