because if you are really smart er doctor like this guy peter or liz who scored perfect sat, you tends to get through life with your brains. if you're former nba player like scott, or bounty hunter like jason, you tends to get by based on braun. and if you're a beautiful woman line ann, who plays poker and i play this game with men and all they want to do is stare at my chess and i take their chips, you rely on beauty. the idea is which of those qualities, can you use to your advantage, in a game like survive orr to get to the end? >> very good. two contestant from our area my money is on philly's on joseph del grip. can you tell us about him? >> oh, i love joe. i love joe. he is 72 years old. former fbi hostage negotiator. the very first season of survivor we had a guy who was 72, rudy, he was former navy seal. and joe referenced him and said, you know, this is the
