Jim Rice: Official Survivor 23 contestant
Updated: August 27, 2011

From his MSN.com contestant profile:

"Jim says: I have a great social game. I think I'm an excellent player. I think I'm smart, probably the smartest person out there. I hope.

Jeff [Probst] says: He's slimy."


From his EW.com new contestant picture caption (by Dalton Ross):

"The medical marijuana dispensary owner is totally high... on his chances in the game! 'I don't think there's anyone else here that has the combination of physical ability, mental toughness, and also the mental acuity to actually win.' And while he says he'd love to meet a lovely lady on the beach, he won't let it stand in the way of his quest for the million dollars. 'I know there's a couple of the girls that are on this island right now that are planning to use their charm. I am completely fine with letting them use their charm. I just have to leave that relationship before it leaves me.'"


Excerpts from his official CBS Survivor: South Pacific bio page:

"Personal claim to fame:I've worked on Wall Street, won over 40 poker tournaments, started several successful businesses and earned my MBA at a top five school from the University of Michigan.
Inspiration in Life: My dad. The guy rocks and is responsible for who I am.
Hobbies: Playing guitar, playing poker and anything outdoors.
Pet Peeves: Close-mindedness and disingenuous people.
3 Words to Describe You: Ambitious, magnanimous and competitive.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Ethan. The dude dominated so much and was such a good guy that they practically gave him the one million.
Reason for being on Survivor: Life experience and excitement.
Why you think you'll 'survive' Survivor: I am the most unique person to ever apply!
Why you think you will be the sole Survivor: No one with my combination of character, intelligence, cunning and athleticism has ever been on Survivor. "

Summary of evidence for Jim Rice being on Survivor: South Pacific.


- Polonium (7/21), in a tour-de-force of cast spoiling, posts the following: "On Facebook, Brandon Hantz has added Whitney Duncan's personal profile, which I was never able to find before seeing it tonight in Brandon's friend list. Last week, I inventoried his entire friend's list and found no one who seemed to be a cast member (i.e. most were from the same area as Brandon, or had mutual Hantz friends). As of earlier this afternoon, his friends list had not seen anyone new added to it. Until tonight.

   Jim Rice - is Facebook friends with both Brandon Hantz AND the Whitney Duncan profile I linked to. [And Keith Tollefson and Sophie Clarke]."


- MayanSun (7/22) adds: "I had a tip that there's a contestant in the Englewood, CO area which is a suburb of Denver. Could be where Jim Rice lives."
