THIRTY-SEVEN, CATHOLIC, PRIEST, ACTIVE IN CIVIL RIGHTS, FORMER COLLEGE ATHLETE, FARMING BACKGROUND, OFTEN CRITICIZED FOR LIBERAL VIEWS.
Contrasting Mr. Blake's anti-Catholic views, Father Frans is a priest. This may cause some conflict among the two, which then could potentially prevent the survivors from working together. However, it will be the most beneficial for all of the survivors to have both of the middle-aged men. Therefore, Father Frans will be saved; we have made this decision because of his farming background. When the group arrives on the island, Father Frans will have the knowledge to supply food and crops from his extensive farming background. Alongside Dr. Dane, he also may be able to recognize plants that are/are not edible. Growing their own food is key for the groups' survival, so Father Frans is necessary for the survival of the group.
