Jeff Probst: Survivor only has one winner,
who's it going to be?
Julie: This gal.
John: That gal.
Dalton Ross: Why that gal and not this guy?
John: I've watched the show the last few
years and I think the athletes all seem to go out
right about the merge time. Word gets out,
various excuses are had. It usually boils down
to, Cliff Robinson last season, the exact quote from
Woo was, "he's got mad bank, he doesn't need to
win." They had the opportunity to get him
out. It was similar with Jeff Kent, Jimmy
Johnson. I'm gonna try to play under the radar
and hopefully they won't know that I had a significant
career in Major League Baseball. If it gets
found out, I'll have to really work my butt off to
make it past the merge and just cross my fingers and
hold my breath from there.
Dalton: What is John's biggest weakness?
Julie: He's intimidating. That's the
way he lives. He can't help it. He walks
around and everybody sees him. He is a big guy
and he really can't help but be intimidating the way
he holds his own. So, that could work against
him. But I think that through us discussing this
a long time, he's going to try his best not to be as
intimidating. I don't know, push his muscles
down. It's anybody's game. He could go in
and just kick butt using all the muscles and get
Dalton: I know you told me that Julie's going
to win this game. But if you do somehow win this
game, how would that rank in comparison to your athletic
John: Seriously? It would be a fill in
the gap but uh, but give me back the World Series any day.
It would be nice. Mainly, I came into something
that I've never trained for before. You get in
the World Series, win a National Championship, All
Star games, that's something I worked for for
decades. You almost expect that success.
Something like this, I worked out extra hard. I
hunt and fish and stuff like that. I'm outdoors
a good bit. This is like by the seat of my pants
sort of thing. It would be a lot of confidence
in my own personal character that I had what it took
to win something that I have not spent a decade or
more preparing for.
