TheDrPeps79 aka Max is a contestant from Survivor: Cuba. He also attempted to use a sockpuppet in Survivor: Korea, but was discovered before the season began.

Survivor: Cuba

Name (Age): Max (age)
Tribe Designation: Havana
Current Residence: Florida, USA
Personal Claim to Fame: Making history by being the winner of the first ever Chat Survivor.
Inspiration in Life:  A guy at my church (name withheld). He's just so positive and happy about everything and nothing really bugs him and he never gets angry or upset. I think that's the best way to live.
Hobbies: Watching Survivor, almost anything outdoors, sleeping
Pet Peeves: Too-warm weather, uneven jacket strings, bratty, whiney, sassy, snobs, people who eat with their mouth open then grunt with each bite, loudmouths, Brandon Hantz, nosy neighbors, ducks, weak-minded people who change their opinions based on others, when people make awkward jokes. There's many other things, but no one wants to hear that.
3 Words to Describe You: Opinionated, witty, fun
If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island, What Would They Be and Why?: (1) a deck of cards, I know it's cheesy but there's just so many things you can do to occupy time (2) iPod w/ headphones for the music because I can be irritable and if i'm irritated, I will tell you to GTFO of my face (3) gum. A big package of gum.
SURVIVOR Contestant You are Most Like: I haven't really though of that. Maybe Sandra or Stephen. Sandra because I can be a villain if a wanted to and I have a sense of humor. Stephen because I think i've got some amount of brain smarts in me. 
Reason For Being on SURVIVOR: It's just such an adventure (even if it's online) and a fun social experiment that I've been a fan of for a weak two years but I've seen pretty much every season via the internet since then. I'm just such a fan.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I know how to play a social game, not even strategically, just getting to know people and making friends. People can relate to that and be gravitated towards you. Also I'm somewhat smart with the numbers and I can probably be good at challenges seeing as their a game or a quiz or something. But if it's a trivia game about Survivor, you can bet that I will excel.
