    Official CBS Island of the Idols bio excerpts (September 9, 2019):

     

    "Pet peeves: Party poopers, girls who play dumb for attention, when the tire hits the curb while parallel parking, mansplaining, passive aggressive behavior, and PDA.

     

    What accomplishment are you most proud of? I've taken three state bar exams—Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Texas—and passed them all on the first try.

     

    What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you? I am terrified of alligators. (Just saying that word gave me chills...)

     

    Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Natalie Anderson because she wasn't afraid to speak her mind, but also made a lot of really subtle moves that kept her on top. Brown girl power!

     

    Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I feel like I was born to play this game. I've always craved challenges that help me learn more about myself, and I know deep down that I do have the physical, mental, and social skills to outlast, outwit, and outplay anyone. My job and my life experiences have trained me exactly how to win. I am hungry to be out in the wild, pushing myself to the edge, and doing things I never dreamed I could do. In the end, surviving this game means something more valuable than money to me."
