Age: 28
Hometown: Houston
Current residence: Houston
Occupation: MMA Fighter

Hobbies: Reading, anything with water, and working out.

Pet peeves: People who complain constantly.
 
Three words to describe you: Strong, smart, and funny.
 
What's your personal claim to fame?
If I were to choose one accomplishment I'm most proud of, it would have to be my debut victory. I was the underdog. I took on an opponent much more experienced than I was for my first fight. I beat her and retired her. I also gained my nickname and fan base after that victory. I've had 22 victories after that, but that one I'm most proud of.  
 
Who or what is your inspiration in life?
My sister Twee. She is resilient and hard working. She was in college tutoring calculus while learning English and graduated top of her class. 
 
If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? 
I would bring one of my favorite books, probably one about mental strength. I would also bring underwear. Lastly, I would bring a hair tie, because my hair is a pain. 

Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
Ben from Season 35. I am physically strong, assertive, but quiet and observant as well. 

What's your reason for being on Survivor?
My first season I watched was Season 35, Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers. I thought I could definitely dominate this experience and win. If I would've seen this show earlier, I would've applied years ago.
 
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
I am an elite athlete. I would win many challenges and would be a great asset to the team. I was born and lived in rural Vietnam until I was 9 years old so my natural survival skills are impeccable. I've sold cars for a living and can convince people of what they want and need. 

Being a fighter, I'm a great strategist. Before a fight, besides the physical training, we watch and study film on our opponents to assess and strategize how to defeat them. Most of all, I am adaptable.

Is there a rule against bringing underwear and hair ties?  I thought they got to bring *something*.  I mean, they have a bag.  You could at least wear the underwear and hair tie into the game.

Wait -- she only started watching *two* seasons ago?

How is an MMA fighter on the David team? Is it a height thing? I thought it was strength vs. smarts.

I had also wondered that, myself, but had been more into pondering the underwear question.

She was there briefly during the David evening confessional time. She mentioned she was a refugee child from Vietnam and was in an abusive relationship for five years.

Oh yeah...I sort of tuned out the giant cry fest...it's like day 2 and they're all sobbing and breaking down emotionally. (and I'm not dismissing the serious nature of their issues, it was just I got lost in all the tears)
