"Hell, Boss, I guess I'm in, too. Someone needs to make sure the ads remind the readers about volunteering and not only shopping for the Mason Ball."
Gray Ryley is the man you want with you on Survivor Island. He’s a resourceful, dependable, intelligent, and handsome man that every woman wants to date. Gray is Sheridan Graham’s favorite ‘go to’ person when a crisis arise because of his level-headed, feasible solutions. He’s a regular stable at Sheridan functions because of his close work ties to Graham and Laila.
He was born and raised in Chicago, IL. He led a rough life which he seldom talks about today but his mother instilled in him the goal of attending college to end the cycle of poverty. She would take him for picnics on the lawn of the University of Chicago so he would feel at home on a large campus and increase his love of learning.
Beginning adversities have made Gray a natural leader, although he chose to remain in the background until he sees a real need to take over the lead. When he’s in a leadership role, he’s quite effective, because he’s able to objectively see the reality of a situation, and is adaptable enough to change things which aren't working well.
When he’s in a relationship, he’s all in or not doing it at all. No drama, secrecy, or game playing. Seeing his mother’s life unravel because of love choices gone wrong, taught him to be true to himself…no matter what. He has no desire to have his thoughts occupied by a secret and spend energy suppressing a truth due to the fear of social disapproval.
He believes in walking in his truth even when it makes him walk alone.
