Wendy Diaz - Bio

    Official CBS Edge of Extinction bio excerpts (February 1, 2019):


    "Pet peeves: I cannot stand when people don't carry their weight. I also hate quitters! Find a way to get something done! Don't just give up when the going gets tough.


    What is your personal claim to fame? Starting my own business from the ground up.


    If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? 

    I would definitely need to take a small jar of Vaseline, my lips get dry!

    Hair ties: I cannot stand when my hair is in my face! I need it up to win challenges.

    Last but not least, I really want to take Scruffy. Okay context time: I have a stuffed animal that I have had for 20 years and I have never slept without him even to this day. My sister and BF insist I don't take him because what if I get him sandy or ruin him. I'm conflicted.


    Which Survivor contestant are you the most like?  I am a hybrid of many players! I think I would play the game like Sandra, I would be the second Diaz to win! But my attitude towards people would be more like Tai. He is just so full of life and I love his outlooks on things.


    Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?  I think I have the agility and the cunningness to win. I love outdoorsy stuff and can't wait to see what the wilderness throws at me!"
