Justin "Jay" Starrett is still in the Survivor game going into the merge.

Jay is a 27-year-old real estate agent and former bartender from Fort Lauderdale, FL, who started playing Survivor's 33rd season as a member of the "popular, pretty people" alliance, according to castaway Hannah Shapiro, on the Vanua (Millennials) Tribe.

Jay, however, didn't agree with Taylor Stocker and Jessica "Figgy" Figueroa's decision to engage in a showmance. Once there was a three-tribe swap, Jay continued working with millennials but proved he's not afraid to make big moves.

Jay turned on his loyal and trustworthy ally, Michaela Bradshaw, so it will be interesting to see what happens next and whether he'll establish a voting-blocks method. Could Jay decide to team up with his current tribe's Gen Xers Bret LaBelle and Sunday Burquest after the merge?

Below is a list of 9 facts Reality TV World has compiled about Justin "Jay" Starrett:

- His personal claim to fame is purchasing a house at age 25.

- Jay's inspiration in life is his mother, whom he calls a "little Peruvian soldier" and his "hero." She has overcome past divorces and health issues, including 10 brain aneurysms and six surgeries.

- The Survivor castaway embraces a surfer-like attitude in life, meaning he just likes to ride the waves and go with the flow. Jay also loves the ocean and all activities pertaining to it.

- Jay isn't cool with people pushing religion on himself or others. He once found himself in that position with an ex-girlfriend's family.

- Jay's pet peeves include people who make plans or say they're going to do something but do not follow through and deliver.

- If he could describe himself in three words, they would be determined, intelligent and funny. But if he could add more words to that list, he'd choose positive and humble.

- Jay, who says he has a manipulative side, compares himself to former Survivor castaways Russell Hantz and Woo Hwang. Going into the game, he was prepared to backstab others with a smile on his face.

- He initially decided to appear on Survivor in order to stop taking things in life for granted. He wanted to strip himself of all the comforts and be one with nature again.
