    Excerpts from her Survivor: Philippines bio page (8/24/12):


    "Personal Claim to Fame: My car was once towed and I was able to talk the owner of the towing company into returning it for free. I have become a local legend.
    Inspiration in Life: Neil Patrick Harris. Have you seen that man do a toe touch? Quite inspiring.
    Hobbies: Surfing and adventure travel.  I love getting to know foreign cultures and flipping strangers into amigos.  Also, I think sarcasm should qualify as a hobby; it is an underrated art.
    Pet Peeves: Societal pressures of conformity and disrespectful men. 
    3 Words to Describe You: Outgoing, spirited and competitive.
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why?
    1) A horse
    2) An audience
    3) A hot guy chef
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Sugar for her uncompromising moral compass and passion, and Sandra, because she is extremely calculating and strategic. 
    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I am personable, comfortable, experienced outdoors and very competitive. I made someone cry while playing Cranium once.
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: People readily trust me, I am very good as a competitor, I won’t make anyone too bitter and I can talk people into anything."


    From her interview, by Dalton Ross:

    "Like another recent contestant, Sarah will be going by her last name of Dawson this season. So was she, in fact, inspired by John Cochran? 'The only thing he's inspired me to do is never wear a sweater vest,' replies Dawson, who could be one of the sassiest sparkplugs this show has ever seen. But will she come on too strong? 'Socially, I've got to try to keep as much of my personality under wraps a possible, because sometimes I do have too much energy.' Just a tad."
