CBS pre-game interview (with Jeremy), from YouTube:



From her official CBS Survivor: San Juan del Sur cast bio page (8/27/14):

"Occupation: Foxboro Police Officer
Personal Claim to Fame: My family.
Inspiration in Life: My mom who was a single mom working many jobs to support us.
Hobbies: Sports, running, Crossfit and reading.
Pet Peeves: Liars.
3 Words to Describe You: Competitive, loving and loyal.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Picture of my daughters Jordyn & Camryn to inspire me 2) A lokai bracelet with mud from the Dead Sea to remind me to be hopeful at my lowest point and water from Mt. Everest to remind me to stay hopeful at my highest point. 3) Matching bracelet I share with my kids to feel connected to them
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Monica and Taj.
Reason for Being on Survivor: Winning!
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SurvivorI have mental toughness, I’m strong and I’m patient.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I have the mental toughness. I respect the game. You need to respect the game to play it. I know how to play the social game and will pay attention to opponents’ advantages before they realize them and use them as options.
What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? I am excited to play the game with Jeremy but our game will probably be different and that will be hard because I may have to change my game and go against my gut based on his instinct. Playing with a loved one brings emotions to the game right from the beginning. You have to watch their back just as much."
