James Lim -- 5 things to know about the 'Survivor: Ghost Island' castaway
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/14/2018
James Lim is a castaway on Survivor: Ghost Island, which is the franchise's 36th season currently airing on CBS.
James is a 24-year-old business analyst from Los Angeles, CA, who currently resides in New York, NY.
James had his back up against a wall after performing poorly in the swimming portion of an Immunity Challenge, but once he survived the subsequent vote, he fell into a power position thanks to a tribal swap.
Although James' whole Naviti tribe united after the swap and agreed to vote out Angela Perkins together, he gathered some allies and spearheaded a plan to take out either Morgan Ricke or Wendell Holland instead.
Domenick Abbate -- whom James called "Russell Hantz 2.0" -- was another target option, but James determined the player might have a hidden Immunity Idol and so it would be best to just go after someone in his corner. The plan resulted in Morgan's ouster.
Until viewers watch what happens next for James on Survivor, let's learn more about him.
Below is a list of 5 facts Reality TV World has compiled about James Lim:
- Michael says he is team-oriented, athletic, outgoing, and tenacious. But more than anything, he would describe himself as astute, resolute, and ambitious.
- The castaway is a U.S. Presidential Scholar selected by President Obama's commission, and he interned for his White House administration.
- In college, Michael was a walk-on sprinter for Harvard Track and Field. And as a senior, he was elected team captain by his teammates, becoming the first Asian American captain in program history.
- Michael's inspiration in life is his deceased grandfather, who came from a rural village in Korea and survived the Korean War. Michael's grandfather put himself through college and became a successful businessman, not to mention he was a beloved family man.
- Michael's pet peeves are slow walkers, people who are superficial, and bigots.
