Why do you want to be on ATJ? I love the attention and the opportunity to prove myself.
Why do you think you can win ATJ? I look like a badass and everything, but what these competitors don't realize is that I'm here to work smart, not hard. I am just going to roll over them.
What are your strengths? I can plan and adapt like nobody else I've ever met. Hard times build character on the streets. I learned how to fight and survive.
Weaknesses? I don't have any.
What are your best qualities? I am confident, tenacious, competitive, funny, loyal, and have a strong work ethic.
Worst? I'm opinionated and a grandstander.
What are your biggest fears? The ocean, sharks, and failure.
Other interesting characteristics: I have six sons, grew up homeless on the streets of Boston, and I train UFC fighters.
Meet Rick, watch now!
