    Official CBS Island of the Idols bio excerpts (September 9, 2019):

     

    "Hobbies: Settlers of Catan (Cities and Knight), skiing, and soccer.

     

    Pet peeves: People who wake me up while I'm sleeping or try to talk to me while I am falling asleep.

     

    What accomplishment are you most proud of? Getting onto the Harvard Varsity Soccer team! It was a very long passion and journey and it was a huge accomplishment to be able to play in college.

     

    What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you? I hate mayo; if I had to eat a tub to get to the Final 3, I'm not sure I could do it. And I don't like whipped cream, vanilla frosting, or sour cream.

     

    Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Kelley Wentworth. She's athletic and gets along with people. And we almost have the same name.

     

    Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? My pain tolerance is high, and I love to make difficult things fun. With a pinch of luck and a good "meat shield," I'll win."
