This New Yorker says his life consists of sports, eating and sleeping. He’s a huge hockey fan and has been named MVP of his hockey team for the past two years. He’s also in a band and plays the same-type electric guitar that was used by Jimi Hendrix. Even though he has an "A" average, Jonathan says that without school, his life would be perfect!

— bio
Jonathan Claymen Lebowitz is a former contestant and finalist on Endurance: Tehachapi. He competed alongside Daniela Bustamante as the Purple Team.


Jonathan was one of the 14 contestants to make it through the Right to Stay. In the partner selection, he was paired up with Daniela, much to the dismay of both of them. However, they managed to get along well enough to win Raft Pull, much to the surprise of everyone. Despite this, and Jonathan placing 3rd in Drop Out, they were placed on the weaker superteam with Orange and Blue, but ended up winning.

Although they initally did well, they were weakened in Waterworks, where they placed last and were automatically sent up to the Temple of Fate. They survived, and won Cubed and Create Your Own Game. However, in Circle of Trust, he was the 4th contestant to let go, and since Daniela failed to win, were sent up to Temple. They won, and made it to the finale, where they became E4's runners-up.


Jonathan was portrayed as someone who would keep to his friendships rather than the game. His close friendship with Isaac fueled his desire to have them in the final two together.


  • "Ideally, the final two would be Green and Purple."
  • "Yeah, baby! Me and Daniela won the first Endurance 4 Temple Mission." (confessional)
  • "The friendship between me and Isaac has been great. And it has kept both of us in the game. Between Purple and Green, we've won every mission except for one. And I wasn't in danger, really, because Green was winning, and they weren't in danger as we were winning."
  • "So that's how you spell 'Tehachapi'!"


  • Jonathan shares his first and last names (with the exception of the spelling) with comedian Jon Stewart, who was born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz.
