Candace Smith from "Million Dollar Matchmaker" stars in the WE tv reality series. She also starred in its prior Bravo incarnation "The Millionaire Matchmaker," for which she joined Patti Stanger's staff as the Director of Recruiting in Season 8. Smith was previously a contestant in "Survivor: Tocantins — The Brazilian Highlands," Season 18 of the CBS reality competition series. She was the second castaway to be eliminated, surviving only six days.

"The Millionaire Matchmaker"

A graduate of

Northwestern University School of Law, Candace Smith has been an attorney and a "connector" in business and love for over a decade. While practicing full time as an attorney, Candace won the prestigious title of Miss Ohio USA in 2003. Upon completion of her duties as Miss Ohio USA 2003, she became a project manager for an events, marketing and consulting company where she had the opportunity to manage several global ventures.

While in this position, she established herself as a no-nonsense confidante for impressive clientele worldwide who were seeking both professional and personal guidance. Naturally her single clients started turning to her for direction with their love lives. Matchmaking, relationship counseling and coaching came easily to Candace as a result of her undergrad Psychology degree, acute intuition, candor, extensive networks and varied life experience. She has found matchmaking to be beyond rewarding; her first successful love connection recently celebrated a 10-year anniversary and two children.

Since then, Candace has connected singles from all over the world and helped them find their perfect partner in both the boardroom and the bedroom. When not connecting, Candace dabbles in entertainment as a casting director, producer, actress and model.

"Survivor: Tocantins"

Candace Smith grew up as a tomboy and athlete, competing in soccer, basketball and track. She lacks fear or inhibition and is always ready to take on new challenges. This sexy former Miss Ohio USA has both beauty and brains, making her a real threat to her competitors.

Smith prides herself in having both book and street smarts. Growing up in the inner city of Dayton, Ohio, she worked hard to receive a full academic scholarship to the University of Dayton. She went on to graduate from Northwestern University School of Law and began working as a commercial real estate attorney. After becoming Miss Ohio USA, she decided to move to L.A. to pursue other aspirations, including modeling, acting and opening her own consulting firm.

Although Smith no longer practices law, she still utilizes her legal skills in everyday life. As an attorney, she mastered the skills of mental combat and knows how to create a strong bargaining position, which will certainly come in handy on "Survivor." She has also learned how to relate to many different types of people from traveling all over the world, including England, Spain and Cuba. Aside from traveling, she also enjoys running, cooking and writing. She is currently working on a book of her memoirs.

While friends describe her as resilient, funny and overall positive, Smith admits she is brutally honest by nature and can come across as a bitch, which may cause her problems with her tribe. Although she knows how to negotiate and be diplomatic, she has a difficult time socializing with phony people. To win this game, she knows she'll have to be able to bite her tongue because she knows what's at risk. A victory would help provide the children in her family with funds for education and she hopes that a strong mix of athleticism and work ethic will take her to the end.



Smith is single and currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
