Rick Nelson from "Survivor: South Pacific" is one of the contestants on Season 23 of the CBS reality competition series. He is a 51-year-old rancher from Aurora, Utah. He starts off the season as part of the Upolu tribe.

Rick Nelson ("Survivor: South Pacific") describes himself as outgoing, strong-willed and self-motivated. He enjoys team sorting, hunting, riding and playing on his horse. His pet peeves include quitters and lazy people who don't keep their word. He says his personal claim to fame is his family and his ranch and that his inspiration in life is his grandfather: "He built a very large ranch with his own determination and sheer willpower."

When asked which past "Survivor" contestant he is most like, he says, "J.T. He played a great game and won. He is country, strong-willed, a great competitor, good to get along with, not a quitter and true to his word in the end. I'd like to think if you put 15 years on him, he would mirror me—except I'm better." Why did Nelson come on the show? "It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to prove that you can survive with next to nothing for 39 days and be one of 23 people in the world to be named 'Sole Survivor.' (And a million dollars would be nice)."

Why does he think he'll "survive" on the show? "I'm used to living out in the elements on a daily basis. I'm a hard worker. I can build a fire, shelter and I can hunt and fish. I'm easy to get along with, always have a positive attitude and a lifetime of little tricks to make life nicer while camping in the dirt." Why does he think he'll ultimately win? "After applying 14 times, I am driven and very determined to win the game. I will stop at nothing!"
