Who is Brad Reese?

Reese is a resident of Wyoming and has been a rancher for all his life. The contestant is reportedly the first person from Wyoming to enter the reality TV show and he is very proud of it. According to his CBS profile, he is “spontaneous, practical and patient’ in his life. In his bio, he has also mentioned that he is a private pilot as well and has been bitten by a rattlesnake when he was younger. Living life on the edge is something that he enjoys.

When asked who is his hero? He took the name of his dad and revealed that his father battled cancer for five years without being negative for a single moment of his life. The contestant also mentioned that he worked with his dad “nearly every day” of his entire life and took him as a friend.

Reese would create a ‘bond’ with others to play the game

A major part of the reality TV show is how you connect with people. You need to maintain some relations or friendships to be in the game and that’s all fair. This is what Reese will be doing to get ahead in the game. In an interview with Parade, the contestant made it clear that he will be talking to other people and start beautiful bonds through work. But, he’ll make sure that he isn’t too aggressive in doing that.

“I have been locked up like a thoroughbred horse! So when that gate springs open, man. I don’t want to become this threat, running around bossing people and telling them what to do. So I just hope to start being able to build bonds and connections through work, but not too aggressively. You can’t push things too fast to start with,” he said.

Others will perceive him as a ‘wild man’

Reese has been a rancher all his life and loves what he does. But, he is not your typical rancher because he loves to do other things as well. During the interview, Reese noted that he is not a typical rancher who just loves his horses or farm, he has many other interests as well and likes learning new things.  Also, he believes that the harsh conditions he has lived in Wyoming have made him read for the competition.

He said, “You got wet hydraulic oil dripping on your fingers, and you’re cold, and you’re miserable with 30 miles an hour wind blowing snow down your back. You got to just suck it up. So I really think that has prepared me mentally for the game of ‘Survivor’.”

His skills as a rancher make him different

The contestant from Wyoming feels that being a rancher makes him different than the others and he is much better prepared for the show than anyone else due to his skills as a rancher. However, that doesn’t mean that his social skills are not up to the mark. His social skills enhance his personality and that’s one of the major reasons why he will be the one to watch out for.

“I have all the skills of a typical rancher – hard-working, common sense-but I'm completely different because of my social skills. I believe I can build multi-dimensional alliances and win trust with most people, but with laser vision towards the end goal,” Reese noted.
