WATCH: Meet Survivor 35 Castaway Roark Luskin

Hobbies: Falling into Bachelor social media black holes, listening to the Uhh Yeah Dude podcast, reading Yelp reviews of generic businesses, like my local Starbucks.

Pet peeves: Name something. It probably peeves me.

Three words to describe you: Sarcastic, focused, and intelligent.

What's your personal claim to fame?
I've had a photo taken of me every single day of my life.

Who or what is your inspiration in life?
Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy.

If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
Toilet paper, because duh, Kalteen bars, because butter isn't a carb, and moisturizer, because my skin has a tendency to get dry.

Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
If Sophie Clarke and Courtney Yates found a way to have a child I would be the result.

What's your reason for being on Survivor?
Clearly there is something wrong with me.

Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
With a few exceptions, people usually like me. I am great at compartmentalizing, so I'll have the ability to form genuine connections with people, but I'm not one to lose sight of why I'm on Survivor—to be the winner.
