If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1. Scuba gear because I can’t get enough of the ocean. 2. Bottle of cabernet because it’s a great sunset drink with a girl. 3. I’m big on nostalgia so a camera.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Boston Rob because I’m a flirt with a relentless passion to win and will cut my tightest ally at the last minute
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To win and to prove I still got it. I’m a huge fan, never missed a show and now that I’ve had time to build my life experiences, I have all the skills to dominate. I can’t wait to prove myself.
Why You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: Coming from the top agency, I survived-alone - the dragons and snakes, daily. I was dealing with the largest and most insecure egos in town. Everyone was the best, the brightest, and the most beautiful…even when they were not. You could abhor them but it was done with a smile so they had no idea. THAT’S SURVIVOR.
Why Will You Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I worked two years at the top agency in the world- I can outwit. I have two master degrees, one from Berkeley and one from USC- I can outsmart. I played on seven professional football teams- I can outlast.
