    Stephen Bamber

    Why did escaping from your life appeal to you?

    Escaping my life for me was a chance to put behind some of my bad intentions. A chance to clear my head and enjoy another environment. A chance to find direction and purpose.

    What is your greatest fear?

    My greatest fear has to do with loss. Loss of loved ones. Loss the feeling in general. I understand the lesson of losing but hate the action.

    What was your job before leaving for the island?

    The job I held before coming to the island was a server at HMF in The Breakers Hotel. One of the best hotels in the world located in West Palm Beach, Florida.

    What's the most money you've ever spent on one thing?

    The most amount of money I've spent on one thing would be $5,400 on my car. Or if you add up the amount of money partying, I'm sure I exceed $35,000.

    What's the biggest lie you've ever told?

    The biggest lie I have told is that I live on my own when I am currently living with my parents. I'm that failure to launch guy.

    Why do you think you deserve to escape?

    I believe I deserve an escape from situations I have put myself through. Opportunities I have given up on. Needed to find time to put everything out of sight, out of mind.

    What is your greatest regret?

    My greatest regret would be leaving college my freshman year at FAU. I failed to make the baseball or football team and had no intention of taking classes if not involved in my passion of playing sports.

    What's a secret talent that you have?

    My secret talent is reading a situation or a person. Being able to take my surroundings and project the best way possible to handle any situation. Being able to read a person's emotions in order to act in the correct manner to affect the person in a positive manner.

    What was your worst job?

    My worst job would of had to been a meat delivery truck driver. From West Palm Beach to Boynton Beach, Florida. Door-to-door meat salesman as well.

    What is your motto?

    My motto would be "Pay it forward." I've always loved putting a smile on a person's face. Making a dull situation a bright one.

    Andrew Dean

    Why did escaping from your life appeal to you?

    Escaping from my life appealed to me because since law school I haven't had the opportunity to reflect on what it is I truly want to do in life on terms of a career. Though I don't want to practice law I am unsure what exactly I love enough to make my career and everyday job.

    What is your greatest fear?

    My greatest fear is failing. It always has been and always will be. Whether it is a piece of art work, an exam, or new choreography, I always try to be the best at what I do, and failure is always the motivating factor in the back of my mind.

    What was your job before leaving for the island?

    My job before leaving for the island was as a dancer in a male revue, a revue not too dissimilar from Chippendales or Thunder From Down Under.

    What's the most money you've ever spent on one thing?

    The most amount of money I've ever spent on one thing is my law school education: $180,000.

    What's the biggest lie you've ever told?

    The biggest lie I've told is to my parents when I first started dancing; I told them I was working as a bartender.

    Why do you think you deserve to escape?

    I think I deserve to escape because I have been through a lot the last few years and will use this opportunity to truly reflect on what it is I want to do from this point forward.

    What is your greatest regret?

    I don't have any regrets. Each "mistake" is a learning process and therefore I don't regret any decision I've made.

    What's a secret talent that you have?

    My secret talent is probably writing. I've won a few awards for the short stories I've written and I have also written an unpublished book about dancing through law school that I one day hope to publish.

    What was your worst job?

    My worst job was as a dishwasher in a restaurant kitchen.

    What is your motto?

    I don't have a motto but if I did I guess it would be to live for yourself and not others.

    Aundre Dean

    Why did escaping from your life appeal to you?

    I was just going through a lot trying to figure stuff out, what I wanted to do and where I wanted to be.

    What is your greatest fear?

    My greatest fear is being unsuccessful and not being able to provide for my family in any and every way possible.

    What was your job before leaving for the island?

    My job before leaving for the island was working at Enterprise renting and selling cars six days a week, 12 hours a day.

    What's the most money you've ever spent on one thing?

    The most amount of money I've spent on one thing is a Citizens Watch for $500. That ho clean though.

    What's the biggest lie you've ever told?

    Growing up I was real bad and sneaky. I know I told a lot of lies, specifically to my parents, even when they knew I was lying, I got a lot of butt whippings. As I got older I didn't feel the need to lie anymore so I really try to be straight up as much as I can.

    Why do you think you deserve to escape?

    I don't think I deserve to escape more than anybody else in this world going through troubles or trying to figure things out. But I do know that I needed to escape and just figure some stuff out and though it was stressful, I did figure some things out.

    What is your greatest regret?

    My greatest regret is not playing Safety when my college football coach wanted me to switch positions to Safety from Running Back. I was stubborn and should have listened.

    What's a secret talent that you have?

    I can write music and I'm actually pretty good at it. Can't sing for nothing but I can definitely write.

    What was your worst job?

    My worst job was working for Cyclone Cylinders, a propane company. I was basically on an assembly line recycling, refilling and replenishing used propane tanks.

    What is your motto?

    My motto is "Go get it." At the end of the day, nobody cares about your feelings or your problems, you just have to do it. No matter what you're going through in life, you can't quit. You have to keep going and make it happen or you lose.

    NEWS: See what we would wear and bring to the beach

    Donny Ghilardi

    Why did escaping from your life appeal to you?

    Being able to get away from my everyday bull---- and have time to relax and really think about what I want to do in my life. I mean, would I rather be sitting in traffic on my way to work sweating my a-- off, or laying on a beach with girls all around me?

    What is your greatest fear?

    My greatest fear is not living my life to its full potential. We get so caught up in our everyday lives that we seem to get complacent and forget about what we really want to do and achieve in our lives. I want to make an impact on the world and not just be another mediocre person that just made it by. Oh yeah, and spiders and clowns. I will scream like a girl if I see a spider, but I would not have a problem wrestling a grizzly bear.

    What was your job before leaving for the island?

    I was a staffing manager for a recruiting firm. I got all dressed up in a nice suit and tried to act professional all day.

    What's the most money you've ever spent on one thing?

    I once bought 24 packs of Big League Chew. That gum used to be the s---.

    What's the biggest lie you've ever told?

    I told my boss that I was going away to a third world country to help children learn English and build bungalows for them. In reality, I was going on this show to an island to party my a-- off.

    Why do you think you deserve to escape?

    I deserve to escape because I bust my a-- every day and feel like I'm not getting anywhere. I need some time to really think about things and live stress-free for a while. And because this Chicago weather is killing me. I need a warm place where I can finally take off my shirt, get a nice tan and show the ladies what a real man looks like.

    What is your greatest regret?

    I honestly do not think that you should live your life with regrets. Yes, of course I made mistakes in my life, but I think that I have learned from those and those are what make you the person that you are today. If you are constantly dwelling on the past, you will lose sight of your future.

    What's a secret talent that you have?

    Once a week for my cheat meal I am able to consume a massive amount of food. Ex: one large sausage pizza and eight donuts all washed down with milk.

    What was your worst job?

    I was a paperboy and never delivered the papers and just collected the check until they finally caught on and fired me. I guess it wouldn't make it that bad because I really didn't do anything.

    What is your motto?

    Where to begin. I have quite a few of these: "Actions speak louder than words," "Know your role," "Girls want me...guys want to be me," "Are you ready?" "I'd rather live one day as a lion than a hundred years as a sheep," "Girls want me...so do guys."

    Jesse Blum

    Why did escaping from your life appeal to you?

    I needed to find motivation in life again. Too many times I had a great idea or wanted to start something new but would never finish it. Working at the hospital people are always telling me that I'm great at my job but I need to be on TV or need to be doing other things like entertainment and continue my modeling. It seems every regular job I get someone has to tell me that and it gets frustrating. I'm more then happy they feel that way about me I'm just hoping it happens some day and maybe this show will bring some new opportunities for me. Getting away and having a chance to find who I am sounds awesome.

    What is your greatest fear?

    My greatest fear is marrying that one true love, having kids, and everything seems to be going great and then a death comes way to early. I fall in LOVE really hard and love being around them all the time. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to live the rest of your life without the person you fell in love with at an early age.

    What was your job before leaving for the island?

    I've been working as a healthcare provider with the job title of Certified Nursing Assistant since 2004. I also have been a personal trainer for some time now and love helping people reach their goals and see how happy it makes them. All those are my main job and I'm also well known as a webcam model. All my friends and family know and I never hide any part of that. Who knows how long I will be doing it but unless you are a webcam model you will never understand it.  

    What's the most money you've ever spent on one thing?

    This would be my car and that was $17,000

    What's the biggest lie you've ever told?

    Helping people as my main job for over 10 years now and always putting others needs before mine, I think its time for me to take care of myself. Who knows what lies ahead but it's time to enjoy life while the opportunity is there.

    What is your greatest regret?

    I have a few great regrets!

    1. My senior year I was ranked #1 in the state for wrestling at the weight 160lbs. I didn't end up even trying to go out and it's one of those things that I should have done because I was great at it, and was wrestling since 2nd grade.

    2. Moving away from my family was and still is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Which leeds to my second biggest regret. Living in Hollywood for 2 years was a big waste. I could have went on more auditions and pushed harder! I was 21 young and having fun and guess I didn't realise how fast time flys. Now I'm ready to do what it takes, if I have to be on set 16 hours a day so be it, let's make it happen.

    What's a secret talent that you have?

    If you know what BMX is then you know it's not the easiest sport. I on the other hand for some reason it comes natural to me and maybe it's those football legs pushing the pedals but I can kick some serious a-- on the BMX TRACK! I also can drive anything with a motor and control it around different obstacles like racing.

    What was your worst job?

    Used to work for a company and it was 9-5 and I had to call people all day long, and it was a nightmare for me. Sitting still for that long just doesn't work for me.

    What is your motto?

    I have this next quote I made up and put it on my business card "If you feel like quitting.. Remember why you started in the first place.."

    "Look what you have now and use it to push you.  Rather than focus on what you don't have and be lost forever trying play catch up."
