Ralph Kiser from "Survivor: Redemption Island" is one of the contestants in Season 22 of the CBS reality competition series. Ralph ("Survivor: Redemption Island") is a 44-year-old farmer from Lebanon, Virginia. He is a member of the Zapatera tribe.

Ralph Kiser is proud of being completely debt-free: "No vehicle payments, no mortgage payments, plus I own two homes on the same farm." His inspiration in life? "I'm inspired by my farm; I've been at it all my life. I'm always amazed at my animals—how they grow and survive. Being able to watch the circle of life go 'round and be a part of it is a very satisfying adventure that I never get tired of."

He enjoys hunting, hiking and traveling. His pet peeve is people who are lazy and don't try to make anything of themselves. He describes himself as determined, strong-willed and stubborn.

When asked which former contestant he is most like, he says, "I'm probably a combo of Big Tom and J.T." Kiser says he is on the show, because "I've wanted to be on the show for years and knew one day I'd get my chance. I want to be a hometown hero for the folks back home!"

Why does he think he will survive on the show? "I'm an outdoors mountain man. I know plants, trees and what most of their uses are. I can also build anything; start a fire anywhere and make people believe anything I say!" Why does he think he will ultimately win? "I will be the king at camp because I can build shelter, cook, find food and be the leader."
