Joel Klug - Bio
  • S1 logo Borneo bio

    From his official CBS Survivor: Borneo bio page:


    "One of four siblings, Joel grew up on a dairy farm approximately 20 minutes outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin. During his junior year at Reedsville Public High School, Joel joined the United States Coast Guard where he remained with a reserve unit for approximately one year. He then worked various jobs, included working for a sheet metal company, as a landscaper and also as a construction worker, before accepting a job at a health club.


    In 1997, Joel relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas, after being recruited by a financial company whose primary clients are health clubs. At 25 years old, Joel was hired as a National Account Manager and became one of the youngest individuals working in his position, although he quickly proved himself to his peers. In two-and-a-half years, his contributions have helped the company generate record-breaking growth.


    Joel describes himself as confident, strong-willed and adventurous. When not traveling the country, Joel enjoys playing football and golf. His favorite television show is Arliss, and his favorite feature films are Usual Suspects and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. His perfect day would start with a chartered fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico, followed by a dinner of grilled snapper and mackerel. Enjoying the sunset from the deck of a condo in Sanibel Island, Florida, he'd smoke a great cigar while listening to the surf.


    Joel currently resides in Sherwood, Arkansas. He is a member of the International Health & Racquet Sports Association. His birth date is April 13, 1972."
