The more creative the person is, the bigger (the) chance we would have

My English teacher gave us a writing about a person we could spend a year with on a desert island. I want to say that our chance for survival will increase depending on the creativity of the person I am talking about. ''The more creative the person is, the bigger (the) chance we would have to survive.'' Should I use the before chance and does the sentence make any sense?

    In principle, yes, you need "the" in your sentence, but I would use a different wording, because "the chance we would have to survive" doesn't sound quite right to me. I would prefer:
    "the bigger our chances of survival"; or
    "the bigger the chance that we would survive".
