Sierra Thomas - Bios
Survivor: Worlds Apart

Excerpts from her official CBS Survivor: Worlds Apart cast bio page:


"Personal Claim to Fame: I was the National Champion Barrel Racer and All Around Cowgirl in High School Rodeo and also a National Champion in College rodeo rankings.


Pet Peeves: Being late because it’s so disrespectful, when people loudly chew their food and underachievers (at least give it an honest try).


If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1. A radio because music makes my soul happy. 2. A notepad and pen because I love writing down my thoughts and goals. 3. Chocolate milk because I literally can drink a gallon in two days.


Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Parvati Shallow, hands down, because she’s not overly aggressive and uses her female traits to her advantage, she’s a very intelligent woman.


Why Will You Be the Sole Survivor: I am a 6’1” model and most people just see me as a pretty face, but I’m a cowgirl and rancher who doesn’t mind doing a man’s job. I am also an extreme athlete. I played basketball, volleyball and ran track and cross-country in high school (got offered a full ride scholarship for college basketball but decided to take the rodeo scholarship). I am a college student who’s going to school for a master’s in Criminal Justice with an emphasis in Corrections. I believe in strategizing and I am not afraid to push myself mentally and physically."



Survivor: Game Changers

Excerpts from her official CBS Game Changers bio page:


"How have you changed since the last time you played? 
I’m physically stronger, more aware, and better at reading people. Also, emotionally, I am less sensitive.


What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I can do anything outdoorsy! I’m physically strong, loyal, easy to talk to, and people trust me. I am in better physical shape than I have ever been. I practice puzzles every day. I’m mentally and physically ready.


What are you most proud of from the last time? 
My loyalty. I set aside pride and played the game. I am proud of my physical strength. I was a strong competitor in every challenge.


How will you play differently this time? 
Last time, I focused too much on my social game. I know it’s important, but I need to use the friendships I make to an advantage. I want to make big moves, blindsides, and do things that make me worthy to win. I am a physically strong competitor. I am bound and determined to win the Immunity necklace numerous times!"
