Joe Dowdle is one of 16 castaways aiming to outwit, outplay, and outlast the rest in Survivor: Tocantins.
The 26-year-old Texan was raised by a single mother, and has since gone on to notable success. During his term at the University of Texas, he became part of the Texas Cowboys, a service organization that serves as ambassadors for his alma mater. He currently works as a real estate agent and spends his free time running, playing basketball and golf.
He believes his dedication and ability to persuade people—or evade them when needed—could help him win Survivor. For that, the proud Texan aims to form alliances and win challenges without drawing too much attention towards himself. His competitive nature may also come in, although he doesn’t want to lose.
