Name: Missy Payne (47)
Tribe Designation: TBD
Relationship to Significant Castaway: Baylor’s mother
Current Residence: Dallas, Texas
Occupation: Owner of a Competitive Cheerleading Gym
Personal Claim to Fame: My business is a HUGE accomplishment. I was never a cheerleader, never had taken out a loan before 1998 when I opened the doors and certainly had no idea what it would take to be “on” 24x7 with really no “off” hours. I have a new respect for restaurant owners because my business takes blood, sweat and tears just like that profession.
Inspiration in Life: My parents for sticking together when the rest of the world didn’t and for teaching me humility, determination and generosity and supporting me through thick and thin.
Hobbies: Water skiing, singing and video editing.
Pet Peeves: People who conform to a standard without knowing the facts, people who play the victim, snoring, poor hygiene, bad teeth, infidelity, valet parking in the Highland Park village.
3 Words to Describe You: Determined, compassionate and confident.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Tweezers for eyebrows and facial hair 2) A journal to remember…moment by moment 3) Vitamin C it’s the only supplement worth taking
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: Experience a once in a lifetime opportunity with Baylor and to win the million dollars!
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’ll bring compassion, determination, leadership, respect, athleticism, sense of humor, the ability to dispute resolution and analyzation.
What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? Playing the game with Baylor whether we are on the same tribe or not will be an unforgettable experience due to our duo determination, competitive edge and ability to never give up. We are a dynamic duo and have a lasting positive effect on people who we come in contact with. Together, we can accomplish anything and usually succeed at any challenge set in front of us.

Current Residence: Nashville, Tenn.
Occupation: Student at Belmont University
Personal Claim to Fame: I am most proud of winning the Cheerleading World Championship in 2009 in Orlando, FL with my competitive cheerleading team.
Inspiration in Life: My mom because she is a survivor herself having gone through many hardships, relationships and heartbreaks. I look up to her for her strength and capability to get back up again after she gets knocked down. She never gives up and neither will I.
Hobbies: Songwriting, snow skiing and yoga.
Pet Peeves: My biggest pet peeve is someone who has no passion or desire or goals. Another is probably slow drivers.
3 Words to Describe You: Entertaining, determined and passionate.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to compete with myself, first and foremost to be an all-around better me.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I am athletic, strong-willed and competitive.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I believe that I am secure and confident enough in myself to not let others attitudes, comments or situations affect me.
What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? It means more than anyone will ever be able to understand or grasp. The level of commitment and love my mom and I have before going into this journey is already ridiculously high, so knowing we will have each other through this game of Survivor, I believe our bond and trust can never be broken. Even if we’re starving, miserable and literally fighting to survive.
