Dartmouth’s Malcolm Freberg ’09 is slated to appear on Survivor: Phillipines, the newest iteration of the decade-old reality TV game show. Freberg’s profile on the Survivor website is kind of a train wreck, and doesn’t actually mention where Freberg went to college, but still bears the green fingerprints of a Dartmouth man:
Hobbies: Exercising, writing/reading and partying.
Pet Peeves: Dumb people.
3 Words to Describe You: Charming, brilliant and cocky.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why?
1) Hair ties – I can’t see anything without them.
2) Book of puzzles – Your mind is a muscle and needs to be kept in shape.
3) Whiskey – to unwind after a hard day of challenge domination and competitor manipulation.
Why does Freberg think he’ll win? “I’m smart, I’m athletic and I’m nice to look at.” Also: “The best thing I have going for me is my single-mindedness to be the champion.”
Pre-season Survivor speculation indicates Freberg “ is one of the hot guys of Survivor who will probably make it to the merge just to be kicked off immediately afterwards.” (“The merge” is a very important event on the show.)
For unclear reasons, the aforelinked website published a photo of Freberg at…Dartmouth? A frat party? Do people dress like this after they graduate?
Freberg is also rumored (among Survivor fanatics) to appear on the show’s “All-Stars” feature, which means—a tipster tells us—”he’ll either be this season’s super competitor, super villain, or winner.”
