High-school teacher Evan loves his job and thinks it is the most rewarding profession in the world.

A class clown, Evan says that he is out to prove that you don’t have to be the smartest or most athletic person to win Australian Survivor. He says: “My emotional intelligence combined with my ability to self deprecate in a humorous way will help me win.”

As a Survivor superfan, Evan blogs about the US version and says his celebrity crush is Jeff Probst.

He says: “I love the show and have admired it from afar since its inception. This will likely be one of the most exciting and challenging experiences of my life.”

Happily married, Evan knows leaving his wife behind will be the hardest part of the competition but he won’t be letting his fellow castaways know, “I will remove emotion and play the game hard. In life, my word means a hell of a lot. Out there, it means absolutely nothing in terms of being an honest person. I will use ‘my word’ at every turn if it solidifies trust with someone and happily go back on it if it suits me best.”
