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

     

    "Hobbies: Surfing, sports (basketball, volleyball, football), and asking questions to my magic eight ball.

     

    Pet peeves: I hate bullies who think they are better than everyone else and talk down to others. I also cannot stand grumpy and serious people. Lighten up, life is amazing, let me see that smile. LOL.

     

    What accomplishment are you most proud of? I am proud of all the children's lives I have changed teaching. Also, I have a really killer Disney coffee mug collection.

     

    What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you? I have the biggest heart. I love people and would do anything to help them, especially kids.

     

    Which Survivor contestant are you most like? I would say if you combined David Wright's strategy, Davie's social game, and a pinch of Amanda Kimmel's likeability. These three players were fans of the game, played hard, and did everything they could do with the hands they were dealt.

     

    What's your primary motivation for being on Survivor? I am on the show to do something most people dream about. I am there to win the game and get the million dollars. Those are my only motivations. If I happen to make people smile and help them escape whatever hardships are going on in their lives for an hour a week, that is a huge plus too."
