Garrett Adelstein from "Survivor: Cagayan — Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty" is one of the contestants in Season 28 of the CBS reality competition series. He starts out in the Brains tribe. Garrett is a professional poker player who currently lives in Santa Monica, California. He was born and raised though in Tucson, Arizona, where he also went to college at the University of Arizona.

Here is an interview with Garrett Adelstein:

Personal Claim to Fame: Being valedictorian of my high school class of over 500 students; graduating Summa Cum Laude with Honors at The University of Arizona.

Inspiration in Life: No specific inspirations. I try and model my life after people who are willing to dedicate their lives to a skill and thus excel at the highest level in that field.

Hobbies: Bodybuilding, alcohol, psychology and cinema.

Pet Peeves: Dishonesty and lack of ambition.

3 Words to Describe You: Competitive, ambitious and confident.

If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? One big picture of all the people closest to me in my life to prevent loneliness, one long chain email between myself and my four best friends for endless hilarity, and a naked picture of a girl I enjoy hooking up with, in case all the attractive girls get voted off early.

Reason for Being on the Show: Win enough money to impress girls in LA; self-growth as I will be forced to deal with extreme circumstances in a way I never imagined possible.

Why You Think You'll Survive: Being a math guy, I'm just gonna go with the odds on this one as it would be statistically unlikely for me to be the first American survivor to die on the island. With that said, I'm sure I will be completely miserable.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: Dedicated 2,000 hours in preparing for the strategic, social and physical elements of "Survivor." Did everything from 50 hours of yoga, to over-analyzing every episode, to mastering slide puzzles to ready myself. I essentially devoted my entire life to preparing for this adventure for the previous 6 months.

Do You Consider Yourself a Brain, a Beauty or a Brawn and Why? I'll go with the modest answer and say all three. I'll probably be one of the physically strongest, most intelligent and my mom says I'm very handsome to boot.

Who Do You Think Has the Best Chance in the Game of "Survivor": Brains, Beauty or Brawn and Why? If I'm forced to stereotype, I would say either the Brains or the Beauties. Survivor is first and foremost a game of strategy, so the Brains, which are the most logically inclined, are in the best position there. But people aren't going to give you a million dollars if they don't like you, so you can't count the Beauties out.
