SURVIVOR: Island of the Idols

Bradley Kleihege is the very last entry in our Survivor: Ghost Island 60-Second Introduction video series. What does it all mean? Are we trying to tell you something? Is Bradley out first? Is Bradley the winner? Is Bradley the person we like the most? Or do we like him the least? THERE MUST BE SOME SIGNIFICANCE!!!!

Or, you know, there’s not. We’ll let you attempt to crack that code while Bradley attempts to tell us as much about himself as he can in just one minute. Can he successfully dispense information while oozing charisma and charm? Watch the video above to find out. And then take a look at his official bio below. But do it quickly because Survivor: Ghost Island premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Name: Bradley Kleihege
Age: 26
Hometown: Haslett, Mich.
Current Residence: Los Angeles
Occupation: Law student

Personal Claim to Fame: Getting on SURVIVOR. But really, I am most proud of getting into UCLA Law, one of the best law schools in the country. Additionally, making it through the first year of law school taught me a lot about drive and perseverance.

Inspiration in Life: I don’t have a particular source of inspiration in life because I don’t believe in emulating or worshipping anyone. I think that everyone has positive traits to draw from as well as less desirable aspects.

Hobbies: Sailing, skiing, and running.

Pet Peeves: Stupid people and people who think they know everything.

3 Words to Describe You: Ambitious, impatient, and astute.

If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? First, a notebook and pen to organize my thoughts and strategy. Second, my retainers because I have had my braces off for over a decade but am still too scared to try not wearing them. What if my pearly whites started moving around? And finally, a bottle of rum because no self-respecting sailor would be caught on a remote island without rum.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I am passionate, competitive, and neurotic like Spencer. Also, I have the same penchant as him for making people feel irrelevant and that is something I will have to be very careful not to do during the game.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To take a shot at playing a game I have watched religiously and loved since I was 9. I’d also like to win the million so I can pay off my student loans and then buy a sailboat and sail around the world.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I like to lead people and take initiative. Plus, I like to roast people and what doesn’t build tribe morale more on SURVIVOR than a few laughs from roasting the other tribe? I can also cook a mean batch of rice.
