Alan Ball will be competing on the 35th season of Survivor dubbed Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers, which will air this fall and premiere September 27 on CBS.

Alan is a 31-year-old NFL player from Detroit, MI who currently resides in Houston, TX. He will be a member of the Heroes tribe called "Levu."

Survivor's new season will feature 18 castaways divided into three tribes, each comprised of six people, who possess similar characteristics that represent their profession or reputation, and how they are perceived by others. The other two tribes are "Soko" (Healers) and "Yawa" (Hustlers).

"Heroes: They are heralded for their courage, their achievements, and ideals for which they stand," longtime host Jeff Probst said in a preview clip of Season 35 that aired during the reunion of last season's Survivor: Game Changers.

"[Healers] receive gratitude for their acts of service in helping people heal their emotional and physical pain. [Hustlers] are respected for their work ethic -- 'Get it done, no matter what.' They stop at nothing to achieve their goals."

Below is a list of 5 facts Reality TV World has compiled about Alan Ball:

- Alan's personal claim to fame is being a seventh round draft pick and grinding for nine years in the NFL playing football.

- If he could bring any three items on the island with him, he'd choose hot sauce -- because the taste makes everything better -- a picture of his wife because sometimes his mood will change just by looking at her, and baby wipes.

- Alan describes himself as intelligent, athletic and clever.

- Alan insists Survivor fans will never see gameplay like his, as the only thing he has in common with people from past seasons is that there was a winner each time.

- He can't stand liars or people who feel entitled. He also hates clutter and gets annoyed with those who do not clean up after themselves.
