Kass McQuillen - Bios
  • S28 logo Cagayan bio (click to expand/collapse)

    From her CBS Survivor: Cagayan bio page:


    "Personal Claim to Fame: My daughter, putting myself through law school while working full-time, and winning $1.2 million in my first trial with no court experience.
    Inspiration in Life: Anyone who follows their dreams and doesn’t give up.
    Hobbies: Reading, rabble rousing and golfing/walking/hiking.
    Pet Peeves: Stupid people, toilet paper rolls left empty on the roller, laundry outside the basket and whining/excuses.
    3 Words to Describe You: Resourceful, tenacious and underestimated.
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? My daughter’s princess crown towel—I love it and her, a Frisbee to play with and a littlest pet shop from my daughter to keep in my pocket.
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Sandra, she didn’t seem to be in it for anything but winning money for her family.
    Reason for Being on Survivor: For the fun, challenge and money.
    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SurvivorI’m pretty resourceful, logical and patient. I can assess a situation quickly and be reasonable.
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I like to win and always do! Plus, I’m lucky and can finagle my way out of situations.
    Do You Consider Yourself a Brain, a Beauty or a Brawn? We all know I'm not here because of how I look in a bikini. I have a tendency to think I'm smarter than a lot of people, but don't we all? I guess not or you wouldn't be asking the question. There you have it - those are the analytical skills that prove I must be a Brain!
    Who Do You Think Has the Best Chance in the Game of Survivor: Brains, Beauty or Brawn? I'm guessing Brains because I plan to win while not caring how I look and quite possibly sucking at challenges."
