Slide 1 of 22
Current Residence: Addison, Ill.
Occupation: Student at Northwestern University
Inspiration: My mom, because she is a fearless and confident woman. My Dad, because he is smart and hardworking, and my brother, because he is my role model and pushes me to be better.
Three Island Essentials: More than one bikini — I like to change it up; hair ties — I have a lot of hair and need to put it up for challenges, and a blanket.
Former Survivor I’m Most Like: Hopefully Parvati, because she combined sex appeal with strategy and intelligence.
Why I’ll ”Survive”: My strongest asset is my background in psychology. I have studied and experimented with group dynamics and understand how to play a specific role in a group. I will also use sex appeal and flirting as a means of disguising my intelligence.
I’m a Brain/Beauty/Brawn: I would consider myself a brain! I work my butt off at Northwestern and consider this an accomplishment that defines me.
Which Tribe Has the Best Chance? I would say beauties for the mere fact that they possess the least threatening label. No one would expect a beauty to be a challenge threat or a strategic player, so they enter the game with the smallest target on their back.
