Laura Morett - Bios
  • S19 logo Samoa bio

    From her official CBS bio page (8/29/09):

     

    "Laura Morett is a 39-year-old Hawaiian mother, wife of 21 years and also a grandmother. Her beauty is complimented by the fact that one of her occupations is fitness instructor, which helps her stay in shape and gives her the energy to keep up with her three kids and two-year-old grandchild. When she is not spending time with her family, working out or riding her Harley, this conservative Christian is running the lobby message center at the Oregon State Capitol building for over 400 lobbyists.

     

    Similar religious and political beliefs, as well as the fact that her daughter had a child at 18, has Laura referring to herself as a, “fit version of Sarah Palin.” Laura enjoys listening to Christian music and is studying women’s ministry. In addition, Laura counsels couples in her church based on her experiences in a long-lasting marriage with a man she describes as her other half.

     

    Determined and competitive, she freely admits that she wants to win SURVIVOR for the money but in doing so claims that she would never do anything to compromise her faith to get it.

     

    Currently, Laura resides in Salem, Ore. and her birthday is July 30th."

     

  • S27 logo Blood vs. Water bio

    From her (and Ciera's) pre-game interview with EW's Dalton Ross:

     

    "The Survivor: Samoa contestant fesses up to being worried about Tyson and Colton in the game. But there is someone else she should be wary of — her own daughter! When asked if she would vote her mom out, Ciera does not hesitate: 'Definitely. We're definitely coming out here playing individual games. But my mom is my biggest asset in the game so if we can work together as far as we can, I think that will benefit both of us.' At least mom Laura is on the same page: 'We've already talked about no hurt feelings. We're gonna leave our game in the Philippines. It's done. We get it. We know it's a million dollars that we're playing for. Any hurt feelings, it's part of the game.'"

     

     

    From her (and Ciera's) official CBS bio page (8/21/13):

     

    "Relationship to Significant Castaway: Ciera’s Mother
    Previous Season: Survivor: Samoa – 3rd jury member
    Current Residence: Salem, Ore.
    Occupation: Co-owner of Morett construction
    Why Did You Want to Return to Survivor and Play with Your Loved One? So that Ciera will understand what I went through. Now for the rest of our lives we’ll always have this experience to remember and share."
