Editor in chief goes out for Survivor
Keen senses, quick reflexes, and a strong will to succeed: these are just a few words to describe Knight Life’s Editor in Chief Michael Gawlik. Ever since he was a young lad, the reality series Survivor had held a strong place in his heart. Surviovr reserved a special place within Gawlik’s heart in 5th grade, when Survivor: Guatemal (one of Gawlik’s personal favorite seasons) aired. With the help of Sr. Abby May, Gawlik compiled a video (screenshots pictured above) to send to CBS for consideration as a contestent for the upcoming season of Survivor. Within this video, Gawlik showcases all of his notable atributes that make him the apt candidate for the show.
If Gawlik were to be chosen for the show, it would make him the youngest competitor in the history of Survivor. With his broad range of talents and smart witted personality, it is no doubt that Gawlik would be fierce competition. With other contestants of previous seasons as his role models, Gawlik hopes to make it on the show to combine the successful stradegies of the season’s past to make him the ultimate player. His personal favorite seasons are Survivor Pearl Islands, where his all time favorite competitor, Sandra, came out on top as well as Survivor Guatemala.
Gawlik is likely to attend the University of Michigan this upcoming Fall, but Gawlik feels that serving as a competitor in Survivor this summer would only prepare him more for what college has in store. Gawlik considers this a lifelong dream, “I’ve wanted this since my youth; it is my destiny.” He continues, “Winning survivor would not only bring a million dollars [laughs], but would give me the mental strength and resilience to overcome any challenge to cross my path in the future.”
