Excerpts from her official CBS Survivor: Philippines bio page (8/24/12):
"Personal Claim to Fame: My three delightful and interesting children and the close friendship we enjoy.
Inspiration in Life: I admire and respect Oprah. She has used her fame and fortune to help people.
Hobbies: Reading, scrapbooking and traveling.
Pet Peeves: People who judge other people.
3 Words to Describe You: Quick-witted, sharp-minded and brave-hearted.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why?
1) A Bible with giant print because I don’t know if I would have my reading glasses.
2) A journal and a pen because I have a terrible memory and I don’t want to forget a minute of this experience.
3) Playing cards because I love to play games.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Colby – I’m competitive, genuine and from Texas!
Reason for Being on Survivor: I LOVE the game and was born to play it. Plus, I want to meet Jeff Probst.
Why You Think You’ll 'Survive' Survivor: I am strong physically, intellectually and in will.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: My inherent make up is to assess the big picture goal, determine the steps to reach it, gain everything there is to learn about how to accomplish the goal, jump in with both feet, connect with other people’s strengths and never give up until the job is done."
From her EW.com interview, by Dalton Ross:
"There is probably nowhere prissy Blair Warner from The Facts of Life would rather be less than out on an island in the Philippines, but for the woman that played her, it is a dream come true. A true super fan, Lisa openly campaigned to get on Survivor. And embarking on this journey can't help but remind her of The Facts of Life theme song because, 'I have a feeling Survivor is going to be a whole lot of good, but it's also going to be a whole lot of bad.'"
