Michael Yerger is 18-years-old. Michael Yerger also does not look 18-years-old. That is clear just by seeing him. But I will tell you nothing else about Michael Yerger, except that he is one of 20 players that will be competing on Survivor: Ghost Island (which premieres Feb. 28 on CBS).

Instead, Michael will tell you everything he can about himself in 60 seconds, and he will attempt to do it without cursing. Will he succeed? Watch the video above to find out. Oh, and I lied: We’ll tell you plenty more about Michael via his official bio below, so feel free to also peruse that at your leisure.
