Kaysha Whakarau - Bio
  • SNZ2 logo NZ: Thailand bio

    Excerpts from her official TVNZ SurvivorNZ: Thailand bio (4/8/18):


    "Kaysha is The Hits Wildcard feisty winner. She’s the eldest of 10 children so knows how to defend what belongs to her – the dinner table was “war”. With a strong fitness background including representative basketball, athletics and cross country something which will come in handy during the challenges. The only thing that will hold her back is her phobia of spiders and big bugs on the island. 


    What did you do to prepare for SurvivorI fasted three days a week, only eating dinner at 8PM for two months before leaving. I also got a personal trainer and worked out five days a week, sometimes more if I could be bothered!


    Thoughts on Alliance or Immunity Idol? I definitely want to form multiple alliances to try and get people to turn on each other. I’d love to know if I’m capable of winning every individual Immunity Idol. 


    What’s your strategy on the island? To be a double agent. I want to work with everyone but everyone only thinks I’m working with them. 


    Why do you think you should win SurvivorI have everything a Sole Survivor encompasses: drive, passion, competitiveness and the social, physical and mental game. "
