”Survivor: Palau”: Meet Jonathan Libby

Eliminated Feb. 17, 2005

AGE 23

HOMETOWN Dallas

OCCUPATION Sales and marketing

THE SCOOP According to his bio, this straight-shootin’ Texan goes fishing, teaches women’s self-defense, and competes in ”full-contact fighting” in his spare time.

PROS Being a cancer survivor, he has already beaten greater odds than his 1 in 20 chance of becoming a Survivor champ.

CONS He’s similar to another handsome, genial Texan — Colby Donaldson — but like Colby, he may lack the killer instinct necessary to seal the deal.
