    Excerpts from Shonee's official bio page (7/31/18):

     

    "From partying with The Rolling Stones to holidays in Paris, Shonee is not the typical Survivor player. 

    Married to a famous pro-skater, Shonee spends her life between London and Noosa where she is an HR assistant. With her husband Ben’s success as a skater, Shonee is very keen to step out of his shadow and show the world what she’s got.  

    “My husband’s achievements are endless so this is my chance to shine and do something super cool for myself and contribute to our lives. I may just be a wife but I 100% believe I can outwit, outplay and outlast anyone you put me up against. My life doesn’t allow me to have a traditional job so this is my chance to do something amazing and really shine! People are constantly talking to me about my husband’s achievements, I want them to speak about mine.” 

    Admitting she’s very stubborn but loyal and fun, Shonee may not be used to the rough conditions Survivor will bring but she believes she can handle it once she’s there.  

    Shonee thinks her strengths will come from the social game saying, “I already know I have a great social game and I can persuade people to give me what I want. 

    “I will be the best sole survivor because I am basically just a professional athlete’s wife so when the other contestants hear this, I think they’ll disregard me as a threat and that’s when I will go in for the kill.”"

    Official Ten SurvivorAU: All-Stars bio excerpts (February 3, 2020):

     

    "As one part of the Shonella duo in Season 3, Shonee is back without her best mate Fenella but isn’t going to let it slow her down. The personal assistant from London who loves chilling on the beach and drinking margaritas is not afraid to get her hands dirty. After coming fourth in her season, Shonee is happy when people misjudge her.

     

    “I was the last Contender standing and survived 17 Tribal Councils in my season! I am an All Star!”

     

    With a plan to keep her alliances tight and work with the villains because as she says, “they’re the ones you want to know what they’re planning,” Shonee will miss her husband Benny and real life luxuries while living on the island.

     

    Known for being cheeky and having fun while playing, Shonee also won’t listen to haters and believes she’s got what it takes. “Why would I bother playing if I didn’t think I could win! I almost won last time and that was my test run. Now I’m ready!”

     

    Shonee says she’d use the prize money to help her family and put a deposit on a house and knows the moment she’s most looking forward to – “Jonathan handing me a cheque for half a million dollars. It’s go big or go home and I’m not going home.”"
