Leif Manson from "Survivor: One World" is one of the contestants on Season 24 of the CBS reality competition series. He is a 27-year-old phlebotomist from San Diego, California. He starts off the season as part of the Manono tribe.

Leif Manson ("Survivor 2012") describes himself as agile, adventurous and perseverant. He is proud of smoking the best turkey, roasts and meats for big family events. "Also, meeting and working with Billy Barty and Mickey Rooney in the same day." He enjoys paintballing, snowboarding and weightlifting. His pet peeves include being taken advantage of and back-stabbers.

Who is his inspiration in life? "My daughter, who I want to provide the best life for. My closest family and friends, who have been there for me when I fall, and pushed me higher when I succeed. My father-in-law, because he is a perfect role-model. Not only is he brilliant, selfless, dependable, but he is also patient and always willing to give great advice."

Which "Survivor" contestant does Manson consider himself to be most like? "Fabio, because his wit and skills were misjudged and underestimated but he outplayed them all in the end."

Manson wanted to be a contestant in order "To build my own self-confidence and to become more knowledgeable on what to'survive' truly means." He thinks he'll survive on the show because, "I am knowledgeable about the wilderness; I can tell direction without a compass regardless of day or night. I can fish and build fire without using modern tools. I'm definitely a handy man and very physically fit and strong." He believes he will ultimately win because, "I am beyond willing, ready and able to 'outwit, outplay and outlast' all the others."
