Sydney Wheeler - Bio
  • S18 logo Tocantins bio

    From her official CBS Survivor: Tocantins cast bio page:



    "Sydney Wheeler is the girl next door. Beautiful and smart, Sydney learned early on to adapt to any situation after spending her childhood being shuttled between her conservative parents.


    Growing up in Raleigh, North Carolina, Sydney decided to move out to the west coast to try her hand at modeling and interior design. She plans to use the skills she's learned working with different clients to help navigate the social game of Survivor. She's also not afraid to use her looks to further herself in the competition.


    Forced to mature at an early age, Sydney knows what it really means to live life to its fullest. At age 19 she lost her sister Laura in a tragic car accident, but throughout it all has maintained a positive attitude. "God put us on Earth to do good things, big things and that's what I'm trying to do and achieve in life."


    Sydney knows she can use her winning personality, along with her beauty, her body and her brains, to charm people. Wheeler warns, "people stereotype me as just a pretty face. Don't misjudge me, I'm going win." Sydney is ready for the adventure Survivor will surely provide.


    Sydney is in a relationship and currently resides in San Diego, Calif. Her birth date is May 11, 1984."
