"Kelly Czarnecki describes herself as a leader by
nature. And though she has worked for everything she has,
she'll also be the first tell you that "she gets what she
wants and does what she wants." Don't be fooled by her
girl-next-door looks Czarnecki is a mid-western spitfire who
loves the outdoors. Called adventurous and ambitious by her
friends, this one-time cheerleader always finishes what she
starts because to her there's always a reward at the end.
Hailing from Buffalo Grove, Ill., Kelly has three brothers
who have helped make her both physically and mentally tough.
In her free time, Czarnecki loves to camp, hike and canoe.
She describes herself as an energetic, strong-minded
achiever for whom self-confidence is not a issue. This
fashionista can be found at the gym at least five times a
week and is skilled in kickboxing, yoga and Pilates.
Although most of Kelly's time is spent focusing on her
career goals, she is a self-proclaimed "denim expert," and
hopes to one day open her own clothing store.
Aside from studying fashion marketing at the Illinois
Institute of Art, Kelly is also the sales manager at one of
the top retail boutiques in Chicago. Czarnecki claims "she
is a hell of a salesperson and can talk anyone into
anything," although she also wants them to feel good about
their purchase. She believes it is those leadership skills
she's received from her job and schooling that has prepared
her for Survivor.
Kelly resides in Buffalo Grove, Ill. and her birth date is
April 4, 1986."
