Shirin Oskooi - Bios
Survivor: Worlds Apart

From her official CBS Survivor: Worlds Apart cast bio page:


"Personal Claim to Fame: Made Google Calendar the #1 online calendar in the world, and helping take care of my mom financially.
Inspiration in Life: Larry David, because he is a hilarious weirdo who says and does whatever he wants. RuPaul because “fierce queen,” “no tea no shade,” “now sissy that walk.”
Hobbies: Traveling, exotic food, whistling champion and mind games.
What is your favorite sport? Field hockey
Pet Peeves: Quitters and morons.
3 Words to Describe You: Competitive, clever and quirky.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1. A goat (or a muffin) 2. Whiskey 3. Beyoncé
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Sandra as a sassy brown woman who doesn’t take crap from anybody. Rob Cesternino as a witty, sharp, know-it-all Survivor nerd who keeps tabs on everybody.
Reason for Being on SurvivorI want to win the ultimate social game, my favorite game in the world.
Why You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I’m intelligent and creative enough to outsmart the challenges. I love to eat everything (bugs, slimy sea creatures) and would be great at scavenging protein-rich food. I bounce back quickly from mistakes/losses. People underestimate me and won’t see me as a threat.
Why Will You Be the Sole Survivor: I practice “voting people out” in real life and succeed. I’m a fighter and risk-taker. I’m super smart, observant, and don’t let my emotions govern my actions at work, let alone in games. I have no qualms with using people or their secrets to get ahead."
