"Michelle Chase has been through more in her 24 years
than most people have in a lifetime. Not only did she grow
up poor in South Florida with a single mother, but her best
friend, her father, disappeared from her life at an early
age. As a result of her Dad's absence, her mom became the
most influential person in her life.
Although life has been rocky for Chase, she's tough and
resourceful and isn't afraid to speak her mind. She began
supporting herself at the age of 16 and was married and
divorced by the time she was 19.
Chase currently works as a music production assistant. She
enjoys DJ-ing, boxing and surfing and describes herself as
lively, bodacious and loud. When asked how her friends would
describe her, she says hardcore, fun and set in her ways.
Besides being mentally strong, Chase has also run several
triathlons. She is ready to bring her street smarts combined
with physical fearlessness to the game of Survivor.
Chase is single and currently lives in Los Angeles. Her
birth date is March 7, 1984."
