Recommended Posts

Robbed of the win on Kaon Rong (32).

 

32648718406_5f8c20f77a.jpg

 

From her CBS.com bio:

 

Current Residence: Cambridge, Mass.

 

Occupation: Social Media Marketer

 

Personal Claim to Fame: My name (it means "leader of the elves") and the way I pursued my education with my own style. I convinced my advisors at Brown University to let me write a children’s book about a manatee instead of a 50-page thesis and went on to graduate with honors.

Inspiration in Life: My grandmother, Madeline. She dealt with a crazy Brooklyn Italian family and was a hard worker. She was the first Woman of the Year at the New York Daily News and never let anything get her down (she once went back to work the day after a major car accident). She also had a wacky personality -- as kids she told us she didn’t eat chicken because “their legs were too close to their butts."

 

Hobbies: Crayon art, running, meeting locals in new places and astrology.

 

Pet Peeves: People who are not self-aware, don’t know how to listen actively or give fake compliments. Close second: scented things covering bad smells.

 

3 Words to Describe You: Beguiling, intuitive and relentless.

 

If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? 1. Crayons – (preferably a 64-pack with built-in sharpener) to hold an art therapy session to calm everyone down. Plus, they smell good. 2. Camera – to document the adventure. 3. Astrology books – I want to know who I’m dealing with and what motivates people.

 

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Love child of Sophie and Cochran. Hair of Shambo.

 

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I love SURVIVOR. Since I was 15, I’ve watched. As complicated as the game is, there’s something so simple, authentic and raw. I have deep respect for the timelessness and evolution of the game.

 

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’m a hard worker who never gives up, and I’d entertain people by pulling a Greg Buis and being a weirdo. People would think I was doing this to be funny and pass time, but I’d actually be extracting key details. After living in Salem, MA during several Halloweens, I’ve learned to embrace my quirkiness and work with outlandish personalities.

 

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I’m an expert listener and a journalist at heart so I’m inherently observant and social. I look for the most genuine and self-aware person in the room so I can connect with them, and I'm on the prowl for the most fake person in the room so I know what I’m dealing with. I want to prove to myself that I have what it takes to manage personalities under pressure with $1,000,000 on the line.

Aubrey is the kind of person that I will be surprised if she makes it further than early jury. Too many people are aware of her gameplay at this point and there are way too many people that won't accommodate her or kick her to the curb the second she seems like a potential threat.

I think you may be right. It probably depends on what kind of alliances she can make early on and how reliable they are, but I can't see her making it to the end again.

From what I remember, Aubrey was pretty low key until the second half of the game when she had to turn it up. Given some of the other players present, I can easily see her slipping her way to at least the jury.

From Aubry's new bio for Survivor 34. She's still very, very chatty:

 

Age: 30
Hometown: Cambridge, MA
Previously played on: Season 32: Brains Vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, Runner Up

 

How have you changed since the last time you played?
I’m more assertive, confident, and grounded in who I am. In my last season, I logically knew I could play and do well. This time, I believe it. I have an easier time taking stock of the cards on the table, making decisions, and rolling with the consequences.

 

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I bring the confidence in my physical abilities. In Kaôh Rōng, I proved I was a brain who could hang with brawn. I might not look athletic, but I am. I’ve been working on core strength and balance.

Emotionally, I'm more grounded than I was. I can be an attractive ally or confidant to other tribe mates, especially those on the outskirts, without letting those relationships drain me.

 

What are you most proud of from the last time?
I am beyond proud that I made it to Day 39 despite encountering some obstacles, including:

- Having a horrendous Day 2.
- Crappily executing the Pete vote. This time, I'll be folding the paper up, eating it for fiber, and taking a new parchment if I change my mind.
- My infection.
- Two closest allies being medically evacuated.
- Being forced to make fire to save myself.

I managed some tough personalities and assembled a ragtag group to vote out Scot, which felt like dismantling a bomb, making sure all the wires were where they needed to be.

Overall, I may have bumped into more obstacles than a ball in a pinball machine, but I played proactively. I owned my actions and fate, and I did it in a way that was true to me.

 

What, if anything, do you most regret?
I wish I could take back every second of every one of the five days I lived with Nick. Oh, and I regret letting Joe eat all the red meat.

 

How would you play differently this time?
Going into Game Changers, I know I’ll have a target on my back, especially since other players will have just seen my season. I can’t play under the radar… people won’t buy it. I plan to align with a variety of people, including power players and villains to pad myself.

In Survivor 34, I will:

1. Do with certainty and apologize later.
2. Be friendly with more people and have intense relationships with less.
3. Execute with finesse.

So far, the classic floater strategy. Keep your head down, don't say or do anything much, and maybe you can get close to the end.

 

It doesn't work, unless you're Nicole on BB, and you can sleep all season and still win.

I liked Aubry's game last time and thought she deserved to win over what's-her-name, but this season seems to be a strategy of laying low and talking only to the camera.

 

She also got really excited about an egg at that reward challenge. Don't they have eggs at camp from the chickens?

I thought both of those thoughts as well. Still, she spent the first half of this season getting burned in every alliance she was in, so maybe she's gunshy now. She did get Debbie's game though.
