From her EW photo caption:
"Unlike some contestants, Francesca is not here for the experience or the exposure. 'I think that a lot of people come to play Survivor and they're kind of hoping for the best but I'm not hoping for the best. I didn't leave my family and my friends and indoor plumbing and meals at regular intervals to come and live on the beach and hope for the best. I'm here to win.' This hardcore fan didn't have to think twice when asked about her least favorite contestant: 'Doesn't everyone hate Russell? I mean he's, like, awful. He plays to win. I appreciate that, but ugh, Ewwww. Sorry. He's awful.'"
From her official CBS bio page:
"Personal Claim to Fame: Assembling the most amazing set of friends.
Inspiration in Life: My mom. She's been through so much in her life, starting with picking cotton while growing up in segregated Alabama. She is brilliant, beautiful and an all-around incredible person.
3 Words to Describe You: Determined, opinionated and stubborn.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I would most likely be a Cirie/Boston Rob combo.
Reason for being on Survivor: I'm normally competitive for no good reason - $1 million is a great excuse.
Why you think you'll 'survive' Survivor: I'm book-smart, street-smart and can be pretty persuasive when necessary.
Why you think you will be the sole Survivor: I might be the perfect combination of salty and sweet."
