Age: 46
Hometown: Morris, Minn.
Current Residence: Excelsior, Minn.
Occupation: Olympian

Hobbies: Outdoor adventures, martial arts, dancing, meditation, and personal growth work.

Pet peeves: Whiners.

Three words to describe you: Adventurous, tenacious, and charismatic.

What's your personal claim to fame? Being a mother.

Who or what is your inspiration in life?
I studied nonviolence and Gandhi while at UC Berkeley. I am inspired by how he was able to use nonviolent resistance in a positive way. His profound spirituality and belief in justice altered history. There are two powers: love and fear. I like to focus on the power of love.

If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
A journal so I could write, music to dance, sing, and have fun, and a picture and letter from my family to feel amazingly loved, as I also send them love daily.

Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
I am a more outgoing, adventurous Denise Stapley. Also, I can relate to the ones who are tough, athletic, and say it like it is, but also have a softness to them.

What's your reason for being on Survivor?
TO WIN! To win the million dollars! I love to challenge myself, and allow my own intensity to thrive in a game like Survivor. I am also fascinated by human dynamics and what happens to people in these situations, and cannot wait to see how I handle it myself. I love seeing what I am made of.

Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
Because I can win! I know how to win. Just like I went from farm town girl to Olympic swimmer (swam for the USA 1985-1991, and 1988 Olympics), I am tenacious and great at convincing others to support me. They feel good about themselves around me and value me, thus being okay with me being the winner.

So her job is...Olympian.  I assume she's not hanging out with Zeus and Athena, so she must be referring to when she competed in swimming 16 years ago.  Hang on to those dreams, I guess.  Also, everything on her head is too large.

Seems like that head would be a liability in swimming, but maybe there is some water physics speed thing that I'm not aware of.

*snorts*  

I'm kind of hoping Big Giant Head sticks around for a while because I think there's more mocking to be done here.

Imagine what that head is going to look like after like 20 days of no food. It's going to be like 5 times as big as her body at that point.

While on the one hand, I think it might be interesting to watch her turn into a living bag of bones. She annoys me.

Personal growth work listed as a hobby?  FOAD.

Occupation:  Olympian???

From when she was in the Olympics nearly 30 years ago??  How is that an "occupation"??  An achievement, yes... occupation, no.

Also, all the big head jokes are pretty good.
