    From her (and Tina's) pre-game interview with EW's Dalton Ross:


    "The Australian Outback winner Tina did not have to sugarcoat the experience to get her daughter to agree to play. 'She gave me the honest truth,' says Katie. 'She didn't glamorize it. She said, "It's going to be the toughest thing you ever do. You're gonna starve. You're gonna be in the elements. And you're gonna lose a lot of weight."' Adds Tina, 'And I may have to vote you off. It's the equivalent of a mother eating her young.' But Tina may already have targeted someone else: 'I think Tyson will definitely be a villain on this season. And it's not just that he just doesn't seem to be all that loyal. It's also that he's kind of mean and hateful.'"



    From her (and Tina's) official CBS bio page:


    "Occupation: Hedge fund support
    Personal Claim to Fame: Raising thousands of dollars for the American Lung Association by climbing 55 flights of stairs at Penn Plaza.
    Inspiration in Life: Anaïs Nin was a strong independent woman who paved the way for women writers, especially in regards to sexuality. She was a bi-coastal, man-eating tigress.
    Hobbies: Yoga, playing ukulele/banjolele, hiking and sailing.
    Pet Peeves: Grammar misuses and poor manners.
    3 Words to Describe You: Creative, funny and driven.
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) My soprano ukulele 2) Deck of cards 3) Camera
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I share DNA with my mother who was on season 2 so I can’t relate any more than that! I can also relate to Whitney Duncan because she was smart, southern and was a musician.
    Reason for Being on Survivor: Claiming the title of “sole survivor” would be a huge accomplishment. Being able to do this with my Mom is the coolest!
    Why You Think You’ll “Survive” Survivor: I am certainly not a quitter and the final Survivor has to earn that title, which I have every intention of doing. It’s time to get down and dirty.
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I’m wildly creative and that translates to everything I do - cooking, games and strategies that would put my team and I ahead of others.
    What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? My Mom is the single most amazing person I know. To play Survivor together definitely tops any experience we have ever had together. I can't wait to compete with or against this truly amazing woman, as a daughter and a best friend, it's an honor!"
