    Biography


    Age: 27
    Hometown: New York, NY

    Previously played on:
    Season 22: Redemption Island, Finished 5th & Jury Member
    Season 26: Caramoan, Finished 7th & Jury Member

    How have you changed since the last time you played?
    I’m older and wiser! I was only 21 the first time I played Survivor and then 23 during my second season. I definitely feel more confident as a person, so, hopefully this translates to the game and I'm not-so paranoid.
    I'm also not so boy crazy, which is ideal!

    What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
    I'm confident in my challenge skills, so I know I'll be a great asset early on. After playing two seasons, I know how to work my social skills to form a solid group.
    My biggest hurdle will be to not come across as a schemer. In Caramoan, I was constantly on the chopping block for that reason, so I've been coming up with strategies to avoid that.

    What are you most proud of from the last time?
    I was pretty satisfied with my game in Caramoan for the reason that I was able to last as long as I did despite being high on the hit list of many people. I was also proud of myself for being able to laugh at being blindsided, and realize it's just a game.

    What, if anything, do you most regret?
    Ha! There's a long list, but off the top of my head it would have to be finding myself in a showmance again! Not playing the Idol! Trusting Cochran!

    How will you play differently this time?
    I will have to play a low-key aggressive game. I definitely tried to overcorrect my Redemption Island game by playing very aggressively in Caramoan, but I think everyone could see I was trying to "make moves."
    I have to find some sort of balance between the two and also try to break away from my "us vs. them" old-fashioned way of playing the game. I have to be open to working with every single person.

      Biography


      Age: 30
      Hometown: Cambridge, MA

      Previously played on: Season 32: Brains Vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, Runner Up

      How have you changed since the last time you played?
      I’m more assertive, confident, and grounded in who I am. In my last season, I logically knew I could play and do well. This time, I believe it. I have an easier time taking stock of the cards on the table, making decisions, and rolling with the consequences.

      What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
      I bring the confidence in my physical abilities. In Kaôh Rōng, I proved I was a brain who could hang with brawn. I might not look athletic, but I am. I’ve been working on core strength and balance.
      Emotionally, I'm more grounded than I was. I can be an attractive ally or confidant to other tribe mates, especially those on the outskirts, without letting those relationships drain me.
      What are you most proud of from the last time?

      I am beyond proud that I made it to Day 39 despite encountering some obstacles, including:
      - Having a horrendous Day 2.
      - Crappily executing the Pete vote. This time, I'll be folding the paper up, eating it for fiber, and taking a new parchment if I change my mind.
      - My infection.
      - Two closest allies being medically evacuated.
      - Being forced to make fire to save myself.
      I managed some tough personalities and assembled a ragtag group to vote out Scot, which felt like dismantling a bomb, making sure all the wires were where they needed to be.
      Overall, I may have bumped into more obstacles than a ball in a pinball machine, but I played proactively. I owned my actions and fate, and I did it in a way that was true to me.

      What, if anything, do you most regret?
      I wish I could take back every second of every one of the five days I lived with Nick. Oh, and I regret letting Joe eat all the red meat.

      How would you play differently this time?
      Going into Game Changers, I know I’ll have a target on my back, especially since other players will have just seen my season. I can’t play under the radar… people won’t buy it. I plan to align with a variety of people, including power players and villains to pad myself.

      In Survivor 34, I will:
      1. Do with certainty and apologize later.
      2. Be friendly with more people and have intense relationships with less.
      3. Execute with finesse.

        Biography

        Age: 25
        Hometown: Fort Worth, TX

        Previously played on: Season 33: Millennials Vs. Gen X, Finished 14th

        How have you changed since the last time you played?
        Since Millennials Vs. Gen X, I've found it a lot easier to take action in the face of fear. After surviving loneliness, starvation, physical exhaustion, and exposure to the elements, I just can't allow silly things like “what-if" scenarios to have control over me.
        Also, I find that my reaction is to laugh at ridiculous things as opposed to becoming upset or angry. Whether it’s an annoying person, an unexpected delay, or a letdown of some sort, I just don't have the energy to be upset at anything that can't win me $1 million.

        What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
        I bring intelligence and realness to this game. In a game filled with paranoid people who thrive on deception, those qualities are a breath of fresh air to some.
        Since Millennials Vs. Gen X, I've been learning how to hide what I'm thinking and what I'm capable of to some degree. I found out first hand that in a game for $1 million, no one wants to play with someone they think they can't beat.

        What are you most proud of from the last time?
        I'm most proud of the fact that I broke a lot of stereotypes. I was the woman who carried my tribe. I was the black girl who could swim and wasn't afraid to get her hair wet. I was the emotional one who could still make a logical decision. I was the "athlete" who was actually intelligent and articulate. I didn't fit in a box, and I liked that about myself.

        What, if anything, do you most regret?
        I regret not understanding the importance of perception. What's real doesn't matter in this game. What people think and how they feel is what matters. My mistake in Millennials Vs. Gen X was not paying close enough attention to how others felt.

        How will you play differently this time?
        I will play differently by monitoring how I am perceived. Instead of bucking the system, I'm going to "play the game."

              I regret being complacent and getting too into the experience and adventure, and not staying focused.

              How will you play differently this time?
              This time, I am taking the game more seriously and I want to be more focused, stay driven, and not become complacent.

                  Biography

                  Age: 26
                  Hometown: San Francisco, CA

                  Previously played on: Season 30: White, Blue, No Collar, Finished 11th & Jury Member

                  How have you changed since the last time you played?
                  I’m back with a honed sense of self, a new passion for Survivor, and a vendetta from my wasted last game.

                  What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
                  I easily make strong social connections with many personality types, I'm resourceful and handy when it comes to living off the land, and I'm decently smart.
                  I'd say the most valuable skill I've learned since my last game is how to play Survivor. I've also become a bonafide criminal-defense attorney, which involves battling cop shenanigans on the daily, which I expect may be a thing in this game.

                  What are you most proud of from the last time?
                  NOTHING. Honestly, I would not put my name on anything I did in the last game.

                  What, if anything, do you most regret?
                  EVERYTHING. But if I must name only one regret, it has to be failing to switch strategies immediately at the merge.

                  How will you play differently this time?
                  My head and heart were everywhere but in the game last time. This time, I'm going balls-to-the-wall. If it's a crime to play Survivor with abandon, take me to jail after the final Tribal Council.
                  We've got some heavyweights in this game and I'm ready to claim their titles.

                    Biography

                    Age: 29
                    Hometown: Hermosa Beach, CA

                    Season 25: Philippines, Finished 4th & Jury Member
                    Season 26: Caramoan, Finished 9th & Jury Member

                    How have you changed since the last time you played?
                    1. My hair is—incredibly—even thicker than before.
                    2. Rewatched an unhealthy amount of Disney movies and discovered I relate more to the villains. Gaston was misunderstood.
                    3. Got a little fat.

                    What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
                    I can do all the outdoorsman stuff. We know this. What I’ve gotten better at is emotions, vulnerability, and feelings and stuff.

                    What are you most proud of from the last time?
                    I don’t do base hits. I swing for the fences—for better or worse.

                    What, if anything, do you most regret?
                    Losing. Also, wearing way too much plaid.

                    How will you play differently this time?
                    Same big moves, but more finesse. I’m still going to find all the Idols, still going to wreck folks, but being a little older and a little wiser—LOL—should get me paid this time around.
                    Please bring back the oversized checks for my coronation.

                      What, if anything, do you most regret?
                      I regret sticking to my morals and values. It's Survivor—you have to play the game!

                      How will you play differently this time?
                      I will do whatever it takes to win. The only purpose for me going back out there is to win a million dollars. I don’t care about making friends or what anyone thinks of me. They’ll get over it.

                            Age: 54
                            Hometown: Miami, FL

                            Previously played on: Season 24: One World, Finished 8th & Jury Member

                            How have you changed since the last time you played?
                            I’m mentally stronger and more prepared to be a social person around my tribe in camp life and the game, in general. I’m more aware that most castaways play this as a “game” and don't play it as real life, so I must adapt to that way of thinking.

                            What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
                            I've always been 100-percent a team player. And, I also think of myself as a great motivator with the people I'm around. I like taking the leader role in a low-key way.
                            I’ve lived my life as an adventure and I’m extremely in touch with nature. I’ve been a jungle boy my whole life so fishing, fire-making, and shelter-building come very easily to me.
                            Also, I've been re-watching past Survivor seasons to pick up any clues I missed the first time around. I work my best to stay young at heart.

                            What are you most proud of from the last time?
                            I’m proud that I stayed true to myself. You pretty much saw 100-percent of me! I'm happy that everyone watching, including my tribe mates, got to see all my emotions. Whether I was laughing, smiling, carefree, kind-hearted, ecstatic, sympathetic, happy, sad, angry, irritated, heart-broke, or you name it… you got to see it all. All of Troyzan!
                            I'm also pretty proud of that fact that my rant of “This is MY ISLAND!” is considered one of the 10 most memorable moments in Survivor history. I'll look back years from now and still laugh at that moment!

                            What, if anything, do you most regret?
                            I regret that I didn’t confront my enemies face to face more. I also would have called out Kim Spradlin (eventual winner of Survivor: One World) in front of the entire tribe daily!
                            I was putting too much thought into winning challenges as opposed to letting the tribe see the obvious plan Kim had. My mistake.

                            How will you play differently this time?
                            I’ve realized this is an “outwit” game more than anything else. I’ll try to keep the bullseye off my back by not showing ALL my cards, like the last time I played.
                            And, at all costs, ALWAYS in ALL ways keep a person around who’s a bigger target than myself. Keep your friends close and kiss your enemies!

                              Biography

                              Age: 28
                              Hometown: Brooklyn, NY

                              Previously played on: Season 33: Millennials Vs. Gen X, Finished 9th & Jury Member

                              How have you changed since the last time you played?
                              Since I just played, I don’t think I’ve changed at all. I’m still digging sand out of my tush. I keep leaving the apartment barefoot. I’ve taken to sleeping on my neighbor's floor so there’s someone to wake me during my night terrors. They know it’s time to shake me awake when I start screaming, “Dave found another Idol!”

                              What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
                              New skills? Well, I went to a friend’s party in workout clothes. I brought my own salad, which I ate in a corner and refused to speak to anyone. So, yeah, I can do that now.

                              What are you most proud of from the last time?
                              I’m not quite sure. It’s really all a blur. I remember something about forcing rocks to save myself. What, if anything, do you most regret? Nothing. Everything. Nothing. Everything. Chris.

                              How will you play differently this time?
                              Frankly, I don’t exactly know what I did right or wrong last time but, I think I played too flashy. This go ’round, I’m going to play more subtly, because I’m a very subtle person.
                              Take one look at me and you think, “This guy knows subtle. No part of his mustache or patterned shirts or style of speaking says, ‘pay attention to me!’”
