From his official CBS Survivor: Cook Islands bio page (8/23/06):
"Born in Mexico, Oscar 'Ozzy' Lusth moved 10 times in his teen years to seven U.S. States and Central America while his mother remarried. He attended two years of college at Santa Barbara City College before moving to the Los Angeles area.
Lusth is currently a waiter and was formerly a restaurant manager. He enjoys big wave surfing, skateboarding, sailing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, gymnastics and motorcycle riding. He owns land in Panama and enjoys going there to spearfish. He can dive to 30 feet and can hold his breath under water for three minutes. He is skilled at building traps, forts, shelter and surviving in the wilderness on his own. In the summer of 2005, he camped all the way from Panama to San Diego over the course of five months.
He enjoys reading and writing.
Lusth currently resides in Venice, California with his German Shepard mix, Buddha (who also accompanies him on his board while surfing). His birth date is August 23, 1981."
From his official CBS Survivor: Micronesia bio page (1/3/08):
"Lusth is currently working as a freelance photographer and writer. He enjoys big wave surfing, skateboarding, sailing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, gymnastics and motorcycle riding. He owns land in Panama and enjoys going there to spearfish. He can dive to 30 feet and can hold his breath under water for three minutes. He is skilled at building traps, forts, shelter and surviving in the wilderness on his own. In the summer of 2005, he camped all the way from Panama to San Diego over the course of five months. Over the past year, Lusth has begun to develop a non-profit organization to build skate parks in Mexico."
From his official CBS Survivor: South Pacific bio page (8/26/11):
"Ozzy Lusth may be a surfer from Venice, Calif. but he takes the game of Survivor seriously. 'I’m here to play in a humble way, but I’m also here to win.' This will be his third time playing Survivor, and he believes the game has made him a stronger person. 'For the last two seasons, I feel it has really changed me for the better. And, I’m looking for this last, this third experience, to really be the end to it all, the redemption.'
In previous seasons, Ozzy dominated in challenges but did not have the best social game and was even voted out of Survivor: Micronesia with an idol in his possession. He has grown a lot since the last time Jeff Probst snuffed his torched and is ready to give the game another shot. 'The last Tribal Council that I went through, the one that voted me off, I’ve got to let that go, but I have to be able to remember and go back and say there were signs.'
Not only has Ozzy matured as a player, but he has also transformed his personal life. Born in Mexico, Ozzy takes pride in his heritage and his community. In 2009, he started the non-profit organization, MexicoSkateProject.org, to help grow the popularity of skateboarding and build skate parks in every town or pueblo in Mexico.
What does he think of Coach, his competition? 'Honestly, I’m actually pretty excited that Coach is here. He can be a polarizing character but I think that he respects the way that I play the game, and I respect the way he plays.'"
Excerpts from his official CBS Game Changers bio page (2/8/17):
"How have you changed since the last time you
I’m older and wiser. I’ve experienced some major family loss so I’m more “in the moment.”
What skills do you bring to Survivor that
will make you a useful member of the group and what skills
have you been learning since you last played?
Patience, listening, and the ability to get along with others.
What, if anything, do you most regret?
Choking on the final challenge.
How will you play differently this time?
I will build my original alliance more carefully."
