Xander Hastings Career

In his CBS bio, Xander describes himself as an “app creator.” According to his LinkedIn profile, he “established [his] own firm for developing apps and is working on [his] first release.” During the summer of 2018, he also interned at Cortland, a real estate firm in Shanghai, China. While in another country, he looked into factories that may provide low-cost materials for sustainable and affordable housing. At this internship, he temporarily used his HTML skills for record-keeping and organization.

Survivor Season 41

Xander is well aware that on the surface, he appears to be a “hollow-headed tool,” but he is much more than that. He confessed that he enjoys the “pursuit of information and experience,” and that he could talk for hours about anything, from the “genius of Richard Serra’s commission for the NYC IRS building” to “Kepler’s 3rd rule” to “how Mandarin permits the mind to think more creatively.”

Xander revealed to Parade, “I grew up being the nerdy guy, the fat person.” “It fascinates me when people tell me they believe I’m some sort of knucklehead. I want to be someone who is young and is assumed to be naive and inexperienced because of all the stereotypes that come with being young. “Youth may serve as my camouflage.” Survivor, Xander Hastings should be in the driver’s seat. After all, he not only has an additional vote but also an immunity idol in his pocket. Xander discovered his idol weeks before, but it wasn’t activated until the Oct. 26 episode, when one member from each of the other two tribes discovered hidden idols in their camps as well.
