John Templeman, The Selection

No. 26: John Templeman

Participant

Age: 28

Location: Seattle, WA

John doesn’t stand out physically and has a quiet demeanor. He is single, has few friends, loves swing dancing, and works at the front desk of a hotel. He wanted to join the Army (and qualify for Spec Ops) but he got caught with pot in his college dorm. This made him ineligible to enlist. However, mentally challenging events have given him a purpose. Being able to be a finisher at Selection would be an actual dream come true.
