Pete Yurkowski from "Survivor: Philippines" is one of the contestants on Season 25 of the CBS reality competition series. He is a 24-year-old engineering graduate from Holmdel, New Jersey. He starts off the season as part of the Tandang tribe.

Pete Yurkowski ("Survivor") describes himself as crazy, funny, manipulative and intelligent. He is proud of putting his engineering degree on the back burner, because you "gotta do what you love." He enjoys going to bars and meeting girls, as well as going

to the gym and making beats.

When asked about his pet peeves, he says, "Stupid people definitely sit at number one. But, here goes the list: ditsy girls, girls that wear tiaras to bars on their birthdays, meat heads, people that are happy all the time, people that beat around the bush, bad ideas, traffic circles, buildings that are structurally unsound and escalators — especially when they don't work."

If he could have three things on the island, he says they would be a bottle of rum; the Ukrainian flag ... "Grandpa would be proud"; and "my stuffed pillow pet turtle named Hambone. He is coming because Hambone goes where I go. He will be an icon for the show. Plus, how can girls not melt when they find out that one of the things I brought was a stuffed animal."

Of the former "Survivor" contestants, Yurkowski says he is most like "Russell Hantz, because he manipulated everyone and was a boss the entire time. Puppet mastery is the name of the game." Yurkowski says he is on the show, because "I want to be the alpha male. This show is predominately about who is the leader of the pack and that's me. I've been busy with school and graduation but now that's all over. It's my time to dominate this game and win it. Plus, I want a million dollars."

He thinks he will survive and ultimately win because "I'm strong, I'm agile, I have excellent balance, I'm intelligent, I can empower you through the use of speech, I can strategize like Napoleon, and I'm a leader ... I take charge of situations and am willing to put my reputation on the line to manipulate and make it to the end. I am not on the island to make friends. I want to win. I have the athletic and intellectual means to conquer anything and anyone you throw at me."
