    Excerpts from her official CBS Survivor: Kaoh Rong cast bio page: (1/20/16)


    "Personal Claim to Fame: Being the first in my family to graduate college, learning was always valued, but not formal education. My family was/is dysfunctional, to put it mildly.


    Pet Peeves: The idolization of garish, repugnant and supercilious people-like the Kardashians; pets as fashion accessories; apathy-don’t just talk about doing it, do it and help make the world a better place.


    If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? Chanel No. 5 as I know how bad we will all smell, dental floss because I love clean teeth and it has multiple uses and a big stuffed Boston terrier.


    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Coach. Period.


    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: Like Hannibal Lecter, I have good manners and am pleasant company. However, that doesn’t mean I won’t scramble your brains. One million dollars means freedom, which is priceless to me. I’ll give up, let go, surrender- when I’m dead!"

    Excerpts from her official CBS Game Changers bio page:


    "How have you changed since the last time you played? 
    For all the magic and mystery in playing Survivor, I'm more patently aware of how people can see and hear the exact same event/conversation and have widely different opinions/reactions/interpretations of said event.

    I'm making a concerted effort to view situations through other people's minds and eyes.


    What are you most proud of from the last time? 
    For all its strange alchemy and upheavals of emotion, energy, and stomach, I enjoyed it all with exuberance and an ability to laugh and forgive myself and others.


    How will you play differently this time? 
    Attempt to reach out to as many people as possible while still maintaining sincerity and decency. I know we are just playing a game, but attachments happen, and feelings really do get bruised.


    If I'm going to lie, I hope not to be too much of a wanker about it. Keep the lines of communication open to all and try not to let slights, injustices, real or imagined, get to me.


    Perhaps gain 10 lbs, as well; foraging for food often uses more energy than we got from finally eating it. Survivor is EXHAUSTING, mentally and physically, I'd like to keep a mental picture of many rescued animals, safe and happy, to remind me of why I'm playing again."
