Name: Dale Wentworth (55)
Tribe Designation: TBD

Current Residence: Ephrata, Wash.
Personal Claim to Fame: Watching my kids grow to be responsible adults. After that, being a self-employed farmer all my life and being able to support my family while doing it.
Inspiration in Life: My dad. He and my mom moved here with nothing and cleared ground and built a farm, taught all us kids a work ethic that has stayed with me all my life.

Pet Peeves: People who never return phone calls.
3 Words to Describe You: Active, outgoing and adventurous.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) A map to explore and then mark where I’ve been 2) A book that explains what I can or cannot eat 3) Toilet paper
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Big Tom…I have to side with a farmer!
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To spend time with my daughter on a new adventure and the challenge of seeing how far I can go in the game.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’m a self-starter that can get along with most anyone. I work hard and I am very good at using my hands. I’ve built homes, repaired all sorts of equipment and I am not afraid of hard work or getting dirty.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: All my life I have been faced with everything possible; weather, breakdowns, etc. My family and I can usually find a way to improvise a way to survive and still be able to achieve my goals.
What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? To be given the opportunity to play this game with my daughter is almost indescribable. I am looking forward to being able to watch her in settings that I may not get to see again and hopefully watch her excel in them. I’ll have to move past the image of her being my “little girl” to her having grown into a confident proud woman, one that can handle herself in any situation that life can throw at her, and know that she will come out on top, or at the least, throw some “mean punches” on the way as she will never quit trying, no matter what. I think we will build a deeper and stronger bond together after playing Survivor.
Name: Kelley Wentworth (28)
Tribe Designation: TBD
Relationship to Significant Castaway: Dale’s daughter
Current Residence: Seattle, Wash.
Occupation: Marketing Manager
Personal Claim to Fame: Moving out of a small town with very little opportunity of “making it” on my own. I’ve never asked for money or help and moved my way up to the position I’m in now. I’ll never stop trying!
Inspiration in Life: My grandparents (on my dad’s side). They are two of the toughest, hardest working people I’ve ever been around. My grandpa was in World War II and my grandma was a nurse. They moved to Washington to start a farm from scratch. They are still alive and are more active than most 80 year olds should be!
Hobbies: Soccer, jigsaw puzzles and kicking everyone’s butt at Scrabble (or any other board game for that matter).
Pet Peeves: Lazy people, overconfidence, not sticking to your word, bad drivers and angry people (get over it already!)
3 Words to Describe You: Competitive, reliable and stubborn.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) A book because I would want something to do in my free time 2) Picture of my mom because she’s my best friend 3) A journal so I could write down my experiences
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Parvati – she’s a strong, intelligent woman who did what she had to do to get to the top.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To win of course!! I’d also like to prove to myself and my dad that I can do it. To push myself and never give up in the toughest situations.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I grew up on a farm so I’ve seen and done it all. I’ve fed cows, cleaned up poop, driven a tractor, hauled fire wood and the list goes on. I’m also very competitive and would never give up in a challenge.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I’m competitive and I’ll never back down. I’ll always keep trying to move to the next step and I’m not afraid to fib a little or hurt people to be at the top. Everything I’ve ever tried to do in life I’ve succeeded so I know I can do this too.
What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? There is no perfect word to describe how it would be to play Survivor with my Dad. We've had many ups and downs over the past few years and I would love for this unique opportunity to improve our Father/Daughter bond. He is truly the only person I would want to do this with!
