Semhar Tadesse - Bio
Survivor: South Pacific

From her contestant profile:

"Semhar says: I'm from East Africa and I lived there for a year during the war so they (the casting crew) thought I could survive in this atmosphere. I definitely lived in the city when I lived in Africa so they're in for a treat.

Jeff [Probst] says: She's gone."


From her new contestant picture caption (by Dalton Ross):

"The former Miss Eritrea is not looking forward to getting her well-manicured nails dirty. 'I'm definitely not psyched about being out in nature. It's not my thing. I know I lived in Africa, but I lived in the city. I'm not psyched about living like a homeless person, stinking, having to smell other people. My biggest fear is probably Redemption Island. I am very scared to be alone.' Which, as a result, kind of makes us want to see that happen. (Sorry, Semhar!)"


Excerpts from her official CBS Survivor: South Pacific bio page (8/26/11):

"Inspiration in life: My poetry on YouTube.
Inspiration in life: Oprah because she is inspirational and loving. She makes a positive contribution to so many lives. She is a successful business woman and a world wide teacher.
Hobbies: Writing/performing poetry, dancing and watching Oprah.
Pet peeves: Liars.
3 words to describe you: Silly, flirty and sensitive.
Survivor contestant you are most like: Fabio, because he was silly and underestimated.
Reason for being on Survivor: For the money, change and challenges.
Why you think you'll 'survive' Survivor: I'm a people person. I can make friends with almost anyone. I would bring laughter, positivity and my knowledge and experiences from living in Eritrea.
Why you think you will be the sole Survivor: I think I'll win Survivor because I'm the girl that no one would expect to. I'm slick and sweet."
