MayanSun at Survivor Sucks
January 3, 2007: Shortly after Glutwein's posts (see below) MayanSun (also of SurvivorFever) connects the "Alex", lawyer guy to what appears to be the correct person:

I wonder if this is the 28 year old Alex. Harvard Educated. Lives in L.A., has a Spanish surname and just registered a domain in December.

Resemblance??? (Hair is longer in promo)

Alex Angarita"
Glutwein at Survivor Sucks
January 2, 2007: New Sucks poster Glutwein contributes the following early tips about Alex:

[Contestant featured in promo as the 'Harvard-educated lawyer']... "is actually Colombian, no Indian/Middle-Eastern, and he lives in LA."


"His name is Alex. He's 28, around 6'2, brown hair, green eyes, lives in LA, used to work as an attorney."

December 17, 2006: Jeff Probst's voiceover from the Survivor: Fiji preview (replete with actual contestant photos, as far as we know) that aired during the Survivor: Cook Islands reunion show:

Coming in the new year... Survivor turns the tables on two tribes, as one lives the life of luxury, while the other is left with virtually nothing. For the first time, there will be 19 new Survivors. This diverse cast, with lifestyles ranging from a Harvard-educated lawyer to a once-homeless street performer, will be forced to battle each other more fiercely than ever before. Crawling with thousands of deadly sea snakes, Exile Island will be more treacherous than ever. This time, two immunity idols and a twist will drastically complicate the game. And one of the most controversial decisions ever made by a Survivor will have America talking. Who will outwit, outplay and outlast all the others? Join us next time, for the premiere of Survivor: Fiji."

Margie Kelly, writing for the Harvard Law School News
2003: Graduated from Harvard Law School. In May, was mentioned in a story in the Harvard Law School News, about the Harvard Boxing Club:

"'The workout is pretty intense,' says Gurkoff, who has been helping to lead club workouts since he arrived at HLS in the fall of 2001. 'When I first started, it wasn't uncommon for someone to throw up.'
   But that fact hasn't scared anyone away. Indeed, Gurkoff's emphasis on conditioning, leadership and the fundamentals of boxing has drawn a steady crowd of students--both men and women--from across the university, including fellow law students Alex Angarita '03 and Scott Levin '04."

(He apparently continued to participate in boxing/ kickboxing after he graduated).
1999: Graduated from University of California, Irvine, with a Bachelor's degree in Economics.
