The 3 Things He Would Want on the Island

He responded with hairspray to create fire and to style his hair, coffee to calm his nerves and to stay alert against any plots, and peanut butter to avoid starvation—and as conditioner for his hair. Zeke’s reason for being on Survivor was, “I love Survivor! I’ve dreamed of starving on desert beaches and running around in my unwashed underwear for years! It’s long been my desire for Jeff Probst to reward my mastery of lying and manipulation with $1 million dollars.”
Zeke was a Contestant on Season 33 of Survivor
When you find yourself living in a dream that won’t end, standing between two of your heroes, and you know you should keep your cool, but can’t help but smile like the monster dweeb you are. I lack the words to express the tremendous honor and Gervase it was be a part this cast. Thank you to every player, crew member, and fan who made Episode 500 possible. I am truly humbled to be one of the twenty who played that day. May the Adventure Continue…until Probst inevitably dies of a Botox overdose. #Survivor #GameChangers #Survivor500 #ProbstBotoxOverdose
Zeke was on season 33 of Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X with the Vanua tribe and was voted out on day 33. He finished ninth on the show and was the fifth jury member.When asked why he thinks he will survive in this show, Zeke said, “I’m tough as nails. Try and tear me down. Furthermore, people fascinate me. I can get along with anyone because I tend to be more curious than judgmental of an individual. I’m surprisingly adept in the out-of-doors and have been killing myself in the gym for the past six months, so I shouldn’t drag ass in challenges. Hopefully, all those hours… okay, days…. fine, years spent watching Survivor and listening to Survivor podcasts will yield at least some aptitude at the game.”
He is Hoping for Redemption on Survivor: Game Changers
After spending so much time on the Survivor island in season 33, Zeke often jokes that he walks around his apartment barefoot and sleeps on his neighbor’s floor. When asked about what he will change in season 34, Zeke said, “Frankly, I don’t exactly know what I did right or wrong last time but, I think I played too flashy. This go ’round, I’m going to play more subtly, because I’m a very subtle person. Take one look at me and you think, ‘This guy knows subtle. No part of his mustache or patterned shirts or style of speaking says pay attention to me!'” We just hope that he can make it further this season than last!
