New 'Survivor' Castaways: A Closer Look at Nick Stanbury

It's time for 'A Closer Look at..." new 'Survivor' castaway Nick Stanbury. He grew up in Wyoming, did his freshman year of college in Montana, then transferred to Arizona to finish his BS in finance and supply chain management. I have no clue what supply chain management is, so don't ask me!

According to his CBS bio, he's a waiter while waiting word (would that be a waiting waiter?) on law school applications. He likes quite a few sports in addition to reading an traveling. He thinks he's curious, loving and overly analytical. (Uh-oh!) According to his bio -- "He wants to be on SURVIVOR so he can travel, learn about himself in a difficult situation and meet smart, beautiful women." Um. Okey dokey. I guess. I would think college campuses probably have more smart, beautiful women, but I must be wrong.

Onto his CBS Favorites page:
He likes the scent of musty dive bars. (I suppose the scent of beer and vomit are desirable?) His favorite actresses are the Olsen twins. @@ <--- gotta roll my eyes at this guy, gotta. His favorite books/authors bring to mind assigned reading, not usual favorites -- Ayn Rand, Herman Hesse. He likes Fruity Pebbles as a cereal choice. Okay, he listed Grape-Nuts and Quaker Oatmeal, too. But he said Fruity Pebbles! (I wonder if he'll share them with the Olsen twins in a musty dive bar.) In music, he likes rap, alternative amongst others. His favorite alcoholic drink... Budweiser. (Which he'll quaff in the musty dive bar with the Olsen twins while eating Fruity Pebbles and pretzel snack mix from a germy dish.)

You really want my prediction on this guy? Really? I predict amongst the first few out. I could be wrong, of course. He is athletic enough, but...!

Your thoughts?

Dear Jackie,
Hope all continues to be fine, healthwise.
You have this guy NAILED!
Wht not try to use your POWER and have CBS bounce him into their next "House?"
Three months of that kind of pressure, with you hovering around, 24/7, should make all the previous shows go pale in comparison.
The Olson Twins?
A "waiting waiter?"
Congrats on all the nice page set-ups.
