Management consultant Yul Kwon used his lawyer skills to win Survivor: Cook Islands in 2006. Now, he's entered another place known for outwitting, outplaying and outlasting – the Beltway.
Kwon, 34, works as the deputy chief of the Federal Communications Commission's Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau. It's his job to help foster an alliance between the public and the government to solve thorny issues related to tech access, tech safety and the use of public airwaves.
"It's such a contrast," Kwon tells PEOPLE. "Being in an environment where you have no communications and no technology to being in an area where you are in the center of all that stuff, it's kind of an adjustment. When I came off Survivor, I had two goals. One was to never wear a suit again. The other was to never make a PowerPoint slide, and I have failed miserably at both."
