Christine Shields Markoski: Official Survivor 23 contestant
Updated: August 26, 2011

From her contestant profile:

"Christine says: If things don't go my way I might get a little stubborn. It says in all the books I've read to lay low in the beginning and kick butt in the end.

Jeff [Probst] says: She, 'makes me want to have a beer with her.'"


From her new contestant picture caption (by Dalton Ross):

"The feisty New Yorker may have the best story ever for how she ended up being cast on Survivor. 'I ended up on this show because I was angry,' Christine explains. 'At NaOnka and Purple Kelly. I sent in the video, yelling. I told the casting people that they suck at their job and should be fired, and if I did my job as poorly as they did, I would be fired.' More like fired up. Anyhow, it worked! Anything about the experience she's not excited about going into the game? 'The lack of food, because I get crabby. I'll have to find ways to decrabitize myself.'"


Excerpts from her official CBS Survivor: South Pacific bio page:

"Inspiration in life: Emilio Zapata, a Mexican revolutionary who fought for what was right and fair for the people of his country. Also, my father, Vincent Shields. He is another benevolent leader, who always treats people fairly, never judges others and is a great teacher of everything logical. And of course, my mother. She taught me how to be soft, colorful and strong.
Hobbies: Traveling, reading and exercising.
Pet peeves: When people don't wait their turn, when people don't peel the price sticker off the bottom of their shoes and drivers who are stupid and inconsiderate.
3 words to describe you: Helpful, stubborn and self-motivating.
Survivor contestant you are most like: Stephenie, because she's strong and outspoken.
Reason for being on Survivor: This is another goal for me to meet and prove to myself that I can do it. Also, my brother-in-law would love to say that his sister-in-law is on Survivor.
Why you think you'll "survive" Survivor: I'm good with directions, instructions and putting things together, with only using materials at hand. I'm an expert at building fires and a born leader.
Why you think you will be the sole Survivor:
First and foremost, I won't quit. As with anything I do, I'll give it my all and I really need the money."
