How have you changed since the last time you played?
Since I just played, I don’t think I’ve changed at all. I’m still digging sand out of my tush. I keep leaving the apartment barefoot. I’ve taken to sleeping on my neighbors’ floor so there’s someone to wake me during my night terrors. They know it’s time to shake me awake when I start screaming, “Dave found another idol!”

What skills do you bring to SURVIVOR that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
New skills? Well, I went to a friend’s party in workout clothes. I brought my own salad, which I ate in a corner and refused to speak to anyone. So, yeah, I can do that now.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
I’m not quite sure. It’s really all a blur. I remember something about forcing rocks to save myself.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
Nothing. Everything. Nothing. Everything. Chris.

How will you play differently this time?
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!’”
