Marissa Peterson - Bio
Survivor: Blood vs. Water

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


"Producers went old-school when they reached all the way back to season 1 to bring back Gervase, but he insists the game has not passed him by. 'I'm a student of the game,' he claims, 'I've been studying this game for 13 years. Studying it!' But then he says this: 'There's a couple of other people here who, I have no idea who they are. I don't know 'em from Adam, and I don't know how they were on their season or what they've done.' (That doesn't sound like the most dedicated student, if you ask me.) Well, at least if Gervase doesn't win this time around he has a potential consolation prize awaiting him. Says the niece he brought along for the ride: 'I already told him after I win, I'll give him $100,000 — untaxed.'"


From her (and Gervase's) official CBS bio page:

"Occupation: Student
Personal Claim to Fame: Putting myself through college.
Inspiration in Life: Tia and Tamera Mowry. They were the first black girls I saw on TV and that gave me confidence.
Hobbies: Playing sports/exercising, crafting/do-it-yourself projects and partying.
Pet Peeves: When people say they’re going to do something and don’t do it.
3 Words to Describe You: Outgoing, adventurous and passionate.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Chapstick 2) A camera 3) Music & speakers
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Parvati Shallow. She was underestimated initially, great at challenges, and a power player.
Reason for Being on Survivor: To win a million dollars and to see if I’m really as tough as I think I am.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I have strong will power, I’m mentally and physically fit and I don’t give up.
What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? Playing Survivor with Gerv would be the most amazing experience, from watching him on TV in 4th grade, to getting to bond with him in the most intense and competitive setting."
