Survivor Season 32 Contestant: Neal Gottlieb

Neal Gottlieb is 38 years old and the founder of Three Twins Ice Cream. Currently living in Sausalito, California, Gottlieb started his organic ice cream company in 2005 after pumping his entire life savings into the venture. He worked 90+ hour weeks at a one man scoop store in San Rafael until he eventually started selling at farmers’ markets and restaurants, now six years later the company is thriving. He graduated from Cornell University in 1999 with a degree in Consumer Economics and Housing and was also co-captain of the university’s varsity lightweight crew. He is a keen adventurer that has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, and driven an ice cream truck solo across the United States in 93 hours. He also lives on a 27′ sail-boat called The Incorrigible.

Neal Gottlieb is the latest in a long line of Ivy Leaguers to appear on Survivor. Dan Barry from Survivor: Panama and Matthew Von Ertfelda from Survivor: The Amazon also graduated from Cornell, and last season featured Max Dawson and Shirin Oskooi, both Brown University graduates. This makes Gottlieb the third Ivy Leaguer on this current cast alongside Aubry Bracco and Cydney Gillon. His Ivy League credentials place him on the Brains tribe on Survivor Kaôh Rōng – Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty 2.

Thanks to Survivor Sucks members Dog, Jadc4495 and Polo for their help with discovering these names.

  1. I’m extremely impressed along with your writing skills
    as smartly as with the format on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you
    customize it your self? Anyway stay up the nice quality writing,
    it’s uncommon to peer a great weblog like this one today..

  2. Neal wasn’t much of a factor on the show, though he did compete well at times. As he was out of the game and onto the jury early, he didn’t have that much of an impact on most viewers, I’d imagine.
    Then he got voted off the jury- a sign of respect for his potential influence on the panel- and he got in Michelle’s face and said some really nasty, spiteful things. Maybe he felt he had good reason, but what he showed on national/worldwide TV was that he is a tiny man, and although he may have been qualified to be in the Brain tribe on season 32 of the show, he showed no brains whatsoever in that moment. #soreloser
