After Merge Nate position in the Tribe was very strong and was in the Majority for the whole way through to Final Four where he wasn't considered too much of a threat and wasn't really going to get the votes from the jury for being considered lazy by Hermosa Tribemates. Nate was Voted off in the Final Four are already being voted out once 3-1 and again 3-1 after winning his only Redemption Island Duel with Mike and defeating Jak. He Placed 4th Place.
How would you describe yourself? Big but friendly. Firm but fair. A proud father, husband and member of the New Zealand Police. I love making people laugh and enjoy seeking out opportunities to grow as a person – most recently having had two lead roles within a local musical theatre company.
Why are you doing Survivor? It was my wife's idea to apply, but I had the final say – and those words were "yes dear". It's the most successful reality TV show in the world!
What did you do to prepare? I tried a few days of eating less than 600 calories to see how I would get on with no fuel in the body. I worked on some core strength and fitness training, and studied personality traits and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
What are your pet peeves? I hate having to repeat myself, more than twice. I don't like bad winners either. Stay humble. Enjoy a win sure – but remember what it's like to lose.
What's your strategy? Prepare, prepare, prepare. Make some investments early on and hope they generate some interest for you down the track. Find someone who I can trust. Watch and listen. Find out people's motivations and what drives them. You don't win this game, or any games all by yourself.
