Noura Salman - Bio

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

     

    "Hobbies: Working out, creating healthy foods and beverages in the kitchen, traveling, and social media posting on self-help, food, and fitness.

     

    What accomplishment are you most proud of? Experiencing the world, living in many places, trying many jobs, careers, and businesses. Exploring many different people and relationships; going out on my own and making my own living and path best suited for me!

     

    What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you? I love frogs. I don't drink and have never done a drug or smoked a cigarette in my life.

     

    Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Malcolm. Physically strong and great at puzzles and problem solving and genuinely liked by most people. And easy on the eyes. But underestimated with a low threat-factor like Fabio and Jud.

     

    Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I'm multidimensional and not just one thing or person. I'm the nerd, jock, and model with brains, brawn, and beauty. Most importantly, I have the social skills needed to both win and influence people, and relentless drive to go after what I want."
