WATCH: Meet Survivor 35 Castaway Ben Driebergen

Hobbies: Circle track car racing, building and shooting guns, and camping with my family.

Pet peeves: Whining.

Three words to describe you: Hilarious, strong-willed, and motivated.

What's your personal claim to fame?
Being a good dad and husband.

Who or what is your inspiration in life?
Michael Blake Wafford because he gave his life for our country. We were together in Iraq and we were a team.

If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
My cowboy hat, my boots, and my running shoes.

Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
I'm a mix of Russell Hantz, Boston Rob, and Joe Anglim. I'm a little conniving and manipulative like Russell, have the determination and confidence of Boston Rob, and the athletic ability of Joe.

What's your reason for being on Survivor?
Winning a million dollars and being on an island and living with nothing.

Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
Because I have survived and overcome so many situations and met so many different people with different personalities. My social game is on point and my leadership and survival skills have been tried, tested, and proven.
