I hate to be lied to (so this should be interesting on Survivor). Do what you say you are going to do. If something is wrong, you need to tell me because I can't read your mind. Don't ask the question if you are not ready for the answer!

Don Couch - He is the man and I call him "Dad." Even though we are in no way related he took it upon himself to teach me how to be man. He is a man of morals and values and he is a man of his word. He means what he says and is who he says. What a mentor.

Inspiration in Life

I had a terrible fear of heights so I faced it head on. I went on my first airplane ride…and jumped out at 13,000 feet. Heights don't really bother me anymore.

Inspiration in Life
My Dad, Phil Foley. Now that I am an adult, I look back on the things my Dad did for my family (my siblings, my mom and myself) and I realise what kind of sacrifices he made for us.

Joe Anglim (25)

Joe Anglim

Current Residence
Scottsdale, Arizona

Occupation
Jewelry Designer

Personal Claim to Fame
I am most proud of winning a state championship for basketball my senior year of high school. In college, I played indoor volleyball at Northern Arizona University. After four years of being self-coached and self-funded, we upset the number one team in the nation in the finals of a Vegas tournament.

Inspiration in Life
My Dad. My whole life, he was incredibly hard on me and always pushing me to become better at everything I did. He grew up very poor and in a large family in which he endured a lot of hardships. Through the pain and sadness of divorce, family tragedies and death of loved ones, he was still able to keep faith and carry on. He has been an amazing father and role model to me and my sisters and he is a loyal hardworking husband who puts others before himself. I've always looked up to him and I hope that I can be as strong, loving and fearless as he is when I become a husband and father.

Hobbies
I enjoy anything that allows me to work with my hands. These include metalworking, painting, drawing and welding. I also love the outdoors - you name it: Hiking, climbing, hunting, camping, etc.

Pet Peeves
Bad hygiene, rude, inconsiderate people, that person with really nasty coffee breath who has no idea what personal space is, when the last person to use the bathroom doesn't replace the empty toilet paper roll and when someone is telling a story and every other word is "like."

3 Words to Describe You
Creative, compassionate and charismatic.

Personal Claim to Fame
Overcoming my deafness. At no point did I let it rule my life. I did not let it bring me down. I have been able to educate people about the Cochlear Implant. I am very proud to say that I have inspired people to not let life's unexpectedness beat them up, to find the positive, and to live life like there's no tomorrow.

Inspiration in Life
My mom. She moved to the U.S. after marrying my dad and giving birth to me. It wasn't a dream of hers to move to the U.S., but she fell in love and made the ultimate sacrifice. Upon moving here, she took English lessons and got her citizenship. Moving here did not come easy, people were prejudiced and mean-spirited, but she didn't let that get her down. She taught me that no matter how bad my day may have been that I shouldn't take it out on others. She taught me kindness, helpfulness and respect.
