Yul Kwon Speaker Profile

Yul Kwon was born February 14, 1975 in Queens, New York and is a lawyer, management consultant, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and the winner of Survivor: Cook Islands. Kwon is a resident of Arlington, Virginia. On October 22, 2009, he was appointed Deputy Chief of the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

In 2006, Kwon was recruited to participate in the thirteenth season of Survivor, which took place in the Cook Islands. This season was notable for the producers decision to divide the contestants into ethnic tribes, a decision that generated substantial controversy. When asked why he agreed to go on the show, he cited the lack of representation by Asian Americans on television and his desire to provide a positive role model for his community.

Once in the Final 4, Lee, Lusth, Oakley and Kwon were shocked to hear that instead of a standard Final Two, the final tribal council would consist of three members. At the immunity challenge, Lusth continued to dominate, winning his spot in the Final Three. Yul, still protected by the hidden immunity idol, was also safe. Both Lusth and Kwon agreed that the fairest decision would be a tie-breaker challenge between Lee and Oakley. Kwon offered his idol to Lee, but she declined. In the tie-breaker, both Lee and Oakley could not start a fire with flint for 1 hour. Moving to matches, both still had trouble, and Oakley ran out of matches. Lee went on to win the challenge, moving her into the Final Three with Lusth and Kwon.

In the Final Tribal Council, Kwon was credited for his strategic prowess and his ability in the social aspect of the game, whereas Lusth was credited for his domination in the physical aspect of the game. In the end, Kwon beat out Ozzy Lusth and Becky Lee in a 5-4-0 vote to become the Sole Survivor, gaining the votes of Brad Virata, Candice Woodcock, Jonathan Penner, Adam Gentry and Sundra Oakley.

Kwon worked as a special correspondent for CNN on a series exploring issues affecting the Asian American community. The series, Uncovering America, aired on CNNs American Morning in May 2007. The topics Kwon examined included the portrayal of Asian Americans in the media, the glass ceiling in the corporate workplace, and affirmative action. He was also interviewed regarding these issues on Anderson Cooper 360. Other contributors to the series were Dan Simon, Betty Nguyen, Richard Lui, Dan Lothian, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Veronica De La Cruz and Alina Cho.
