Dan is a 27-year-old S.W.A.T. officer from Lake Butler, FL, who currently resides in Gainesville, FL.
Dan, who lost a lot of weight before appearing on Survivor, began the game as a member of Survivor: David vs. Goliath's Goliath tribe, which has visible advantages and represents accomplished or charming individuals who may also be strong, well educated, attractive, or born wealthy.
Dan has a friendly personality and attracted the beautiful Kara Kay in Fiji, but he appears to be playing the game with his heart.
Not only is he okay with entering a Survivor showmance despite potentially becoming a target, but he also stored his hidden Immunity Idol among his own belongings -- allowing other people to search through his bag and discover the idol.
Kara is also prepared to throw Dan under the bus if necessary in order to build alliances and advance herself in the game.
