As his job often puts him in dangerous situations, Charles worries about not being able to come home alive to care for his wife. He was raised in a strict environment and was taught to take care of himself at an early age.

Here is an interview with Charles ("The Hero"):

What do you think it means to be a hero? 

The ordinary person doing the extraordinary act. A total disregard for self for the sake of another person, especially a stranger.

What's the most important quality that a hero must possess? 

One part courage with a heaping scoop of selflessness.

What's your biggest strength? 

The heart to say, "I can" when my mind says, "I can't."

What's your biggest weakness? 


You vs. The Rock: What would be the outcome? 

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. My foot, his Mr. Winky, pant lollipop, baby cannon ... whatever he calls it. You get the picture. Charles:1 Rock:0. Enough said. (and then I get the hell outta Dodge!)

If your life was an action movie, what would it be called? 

"DodoCop" (1987) or "Kinda Braveheart " (1995). Depends on what kind of a day I'm having.

What are three things you couldn't live without? 

Wife. Surf. In-N-Out Burger.

What's your biggest fear? 

Not coming home to take care of my wife.

Describe your most hero-like moment. 

Evacuating children and families from a school/houses during a brush fire.

What's your guilty pleasure?

Haagen Dazs Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, In-N-Out Double Double and New York style pizza.

What accomplishment in life are you the most proud of?

It has yet to come.

What's your biggest motivator?

Belief in myself.

Who's your hero? 

The men and women of law enforcement and the military who have sacrificed their lives for the public. Eddie Aikau.

What would be your theme song?

"Don't Worry, Be Happy."

Why did you want to be on this show? 

To test myself against the ideals of what I think a hero is.

What gets your adrenaline pumping (e.g. are you a skydiver? Whitewater rafter? Afraid of public speaking, etc.)

Surfing big, fast waves and a juicy In N Out Burger.
