Here, in their own words, are why these contestants believe they will triumph.
WOO HWANG: “I’m smart and can play a great social game. People tend to like me. I’m fast and agile. I’ll do great in obstacle course challenges. I have undeniable focus and concentration and I’ll smash the competition in balancing challenges. I can swim well and climb coconut trees. I am SURVIVOR!”
J’TAI TAYLOR: “I’m very analytical so I’m good at breaking down/solving a problem and I’m also really good at getting people motivated and helping them achieve a goal. I have an irrepressible drive and tenacity.”
ALEXIS MAXWELL: “My strongest asset is my background in psychology. I have studied and experimented with group dynamics and understand how to play a specific role in a group. I will also use sex appeal and flirting as a means of disguising my intelligence. I have always been aware of my role in a group and know how to lead in a sneaky way. I will use my education and flirty personality to assure I’m always in a good position.”
