Zeke's Vinaka Alliance
Justin "Jay" Starrett is a contestant from Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.
Despite his laid-back personality, Jay proved to be a serious threat during his season, orchestrating the blindside of Michaela Bradshaw, winning two individual Immunity Challenges, and finding a Hidden Immunity Idol. During the merge, his affiliation with the Triforce and his physical prowess during challenges made him a target. He managed to outlast all of his original alliance but, after mistakenly playing a fake idol made by David Wright, he was voted out unanimously, and his vote was cancelled out.

Name: Justin "Jay" Starrett
Current residence: Fort Lauderdale, FL
Occupation: Real estate agent
Tribe designation: Vanua (Millennials)
Three words to describe you: Determined, intelligent, and funny.
Hobbies: Skimboarding, fishing, and pretty much any sport.
Pet peeves: I don't like when people make plans or say they're going to do something and they don't deliver.
What does it mean to be a Millennial? Millennial means "freedom" to me. I say this because we are born in a time when anything is truly possible; social media and all these different outlets help you to not only learn information quickly, but gives you the capability to become or create anything. Being a Millennial, you can chase your dreams and do things that are out-of-the-box; as long as you are working towards your dream and not just sitting there thinking about it, you can become successful.
Personal claim to fame: Purchasing my house at the age of 25.
Inspiration in life: I would definitely have to say my beautiful mother is my hero. Through everything—including past divorces and serious health issues—she still pushes forward like the little Peruvian soldier she is. She's had 10 brain aneurisms and received surgical care for six of them. She wakes up every day smiling and not only motivates and inspires me, but everyone she comes in contact with. I am truly blessed.
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? iPod because I'm always dancing or jamming out to something; a skimboard just in case there are some waves to ride; and a DVD player with DVDs, so I can lie back and relax after my hard day of living life like a caveman.
Survivor contestant you're most like: I have to say Russell Hantz (Samoa, Heroes vs. Villains, Redemption Island) and Woo Hwang (Cagayan, Cambodia). Not only will I constantly look through everything to find clues, I'll be observant to all of my surroundings. I'll align myself with the men and women to make everyone believe I want to make a team; but, all the while, I'll be backstabbing and making big moves to eliminate any threat I may feel will get in the way of my success. Did I mention I'll be doing this with a smile on my face that will have to make them vote for me in the end?
Reason for being on Survivor: Sometimes I take the things for granted and I would like to strip myself of all the comforts. I want to go out there and play this game and win. I want to be with nature again and I want to lose myself, so I can rediscover myself. The other reason is simple; it's a million dollars. Come on. That could change everything in a person's life.
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I will be the final Survivor. Period. I am mentally strong and will push my body to any limit it has to go. I am extremely intelligent, determined, and focused on winning. I have a ton of street smarts and know how to maneuver and manipulate people to get the things I want. I'm a flirtatious, outgoing, good-looking guy who is not afraid to work hard and make big moves.
