Alec is a 24-year-old bartender from San Clemente, CA.

Alec has yet to receive much Survivor screentime, but that's because he's a member of the Goliath tribe, which has yet to attend Tribal Council or vote off one of its members.

Survivor: David vs. Goliath's Goliath tribe has visible advantages and represents accomplished or charming individuals who may also be strong, well educated, attractive, or born wealthy.

Alec is young, handsome and athletic, and rumor has it he gets involved in a showmance -- or love triangle -- this season.
