Profile

Name (Age): Michael Snow (44)
Tribe Designation: Gota
Current Residence: New York city, N.Y.
Occupation: Event Planner
Personal Claim to Fame: I was a founding member of the Whole World Theater in Atlanta. The show is still running today!
Inspiration in Life: My late friend Thomas Boyd. Thomas's humor in the face of cancer and AIDS was unforgettable. He showed me grace and strength and taught me so much about life and death.
Hobbies: Running, theater/film (attending and participating), knitting and photobombing.
Pet Peeves: I don't like "crazy." If you can't think, rationally stay away from me.
3 Words to Describe You: Determined, enthusiastic and witty.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Knitting needles and skeins of yarn. 2) Cribbage. 3) Journal
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Cirie and Rob Cesternino – Even though neither of them won, they are my 2 favorites. I relate to their game of listening, charming with humor and not acting like a jerk.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I'm playing to win it.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" SURVIVOR: I'm patient, a problem solver (I do it for a living) and a hard worker.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I possess a strong social game. I will bond with my tribe long enough to establish solid relationships, until I have to break them and vote them out. I come across as enthusiastic and easy going, but I have a focus and intensity that is only apparent when I need them. I am resilient and surprisingly firm in my decision making.[1]

Survivor: Caramoan

Michael was placed on the Gota tribe of Fans. He bonded with Matt Bischoff, who was stuck between two alliances. Michael and Matt talked about the benefits of both sides. Michael did not have to go to the first Tribal Council, since Gota won the Immunity Challenge.

Michael was annoyed like many of the other tribemates on the behavior of Shamar Thomas. However, Michael decided to stick to the Gota Alliance on voting out Allie Pohevitz. At camp, Shamar was yelling at everybody. Michael commented on how much he did this. But, still sticking to his alliance, he voted for Hope Driskill at the next Tribal Council.

After Shamar was evacuated, Matt told Michael that it was smart if they voted for Laura Alexander, since Reynold Toepfer and Eddie Fox were great physically. Michael strongly considered this, because Michael did not like losing most of the Immunity Challenges. Since they lost the next Immunity Challenge, Michael voted for Laura.

Then up came the tribe switch. Michael switched to Bikal with Matt and Julia Landauer. He bonded well with Corinne Kaplan. Corinne really liked Michael and wanted him to stay, so she told the rest of the alliance to vote for Julia. Michael and Matt both wanted to vote for Julia to get her out so they would not be targeted, but Matt told the alliance that he did not have a Hidden Immunity Idol. The Favorites then decided to vote out Matt since they knew he did not have an Idol.

Since Bikal was not very great physically, they lost the next two challenges. Corinne tried to tell Phillip Sheppard to vote for Julia, but he noticed Corinne and Michael's strong bond. Phillip then targeted Michael, but thankfully, Julia told Dawn Meehan that Phillip was a threat, so Julia was voted out instead.

The merge then came, and Michael joined the The Three Amigos. Malcolm Freberg had arranged this for him, Corinne, Michael, Reynold, Eddie, and Erik Reichenbach, but Erik flipped his vote to Corinne, and another of Michael's close friends was voted out. At the next Reward Challenge, Michael's team (John Cochran, Reynold, Erik, Eddie, and Michael), won. At the reward, Michael had the idea to "bro-up" and make an all-boys alliance, opposing to the first Fans vs. Favorites alliance. Cochran secretly hated the idea. 

At camp, Malcolm, Reynold, and Eddie wanted to gain Dawn's trust. They showed her an idol, and Stealth R Us 2.0 wanted to get rid of Malcolm. However, after Eddie talked to Andrea, she became nervous that if the played an idol, she would be going next. So, she targeted Michael. At Tribal Council, Malcolm played the idol, even though no voted were cast against him. Michael was blindsided, 7-3-1. Michael was the first jury member.

At Final Tribal Council, Michael gave his jury vote to Cochran, who eventually became the Sole Survivor.
