Originally from Belmont County, Ohio, Aaron Reisberger obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management from Ohio State University. After college, he moved to Chicago for some time and then to Hawaii. He also has his certification from the American Council on Exercise and a bartending license from the state of Hawaii. He is currently a surfing instructor while also tending bar and managing a tapas restaurant. He has previously worked in home remodeling.

Reisberger's hobbies include cooking (his favorite show is "Top Chef" and he subscribes to Food & Wine), surfing, golf and reading. He describes himself as witty, fun and, well, sometimes too nice. He is proud to say he was on THE PRICE IS RIGHT. He thinks his knowledge of cooking and how to make things edible and tasty will help his game, as will his ability to adapt to his environment and to get along without a lot of creature comforts.

Reisberger currently resides in Venice, California.

Survivor: China

At the start of the game Aaron was placed on the Fei Long tribe. He quickly took up the leadership role at his tribe because of his strength. After winning the first Immunity Challenge on Day 3, Aaron was asked to join the Fei Long Alliance, which was created by fellow tribe members Todd Herzog and Amanda Kimmel. He immediately accepted the offer. He was inducted into the alliance because he was the tribe leader and he would be able to carry out orders.

Aaron remained safe when Fei Long won the second Immunity Challenge on Day 6. After Fei Long lost their first Immunity Challenge on Day 9 Aaron led his alliance in voting out Leslie Nease who was the outsider of the alliance. Aaron avoided Tribal Council again on Day 12 when Fei Long won immunity.

On Day 14 both tribes got a message instructing them to choose two warriors from the other tribe to join them. Aaron along with James Clement were chosen by Zhan Hu, for being the strongest contestants, and therefore officially joined the Zhan Hu tribe. At the Immunity Challenge on Day 15, despite James and Aaron trying their best, Zhan Hu threw the challenge in order to vote out one of their new members. Unfortunately for Aaron the original Zhan Hu members decided that James was stronger and was a bigger asset to the tribe, so Aaron became the fifth person voted out of Survivor: China.
