Background: 24-year-old bartender who was originally a member of the Beauty Tribe
Accomplishments: Most will say Michele kept an extremely low profile and flew under the radar during the first half of Survivor: Kaoh Rong, but that doesn't mean her strategy should be downplayed by any means. With her approachable nature, Michele buddied up with this season's youngest castaway, Julia, and used her people skills to ensure quality time with other top players, which often kept her name out of Tribal talk.
Sure, she took a punch when she adopted responsibility for losing a tough Reward Challenge, but she made up for it when she later used her incredible memory and puzzle skills to spell out the word "immunity" at an Immunity Challenge.
More recently, the bright-eyed brunette confronted Tai when he put her on blast, but ended up befriending him to go further in the game. The bold move showed everyone that this Jersey girl was not afraid to get her hands dirty if it means landing the title of Sole Survivor.
Skills: Loyal, extroverted, quiet game play
