Knowing Tennis Can Help In ‘Survivor’ – To A Point

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s hard to prepare for Survivor, but recent cast off Edgardo Rivera admits his tennis background helped – to a point.

Rivera, who was kicked off the show this past Thursday (Apr. 19), is a former member of the Puerto Rico Davis Cup National Team and says the sport did help him with Survivor.

As he puts it, “In tennis, you size up your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses and plan the strategy accordingly. That definitely transferred to Survivor.”

But whereas tennis players can do scouting reports on each other, Rivera admits that, in Survivor, you “can’t plan for the people.”

In his words, “You just have to ask people what they do in the real world, and then stereotype them.”

Rivera admits that worked to a point, but says he screwed up by not taking “more of a leader-like role in the game,” and ``letting Alex do all the talking.”
