that doesn't get moved to the dryer immediately, pretty girls wearing ugly shoes and people who drink decaf.

She says her personal claim to fame is raising her three younger sisters and being the second runner-up to Miss America. Who is her inspiration in life? "My Grandma, Viola. God rest her beautiful soul. She taught me three of the most important things I'll ever learn: how to read, how to pray and how to appreciate music."

When asked which past "Survivor" contestant she is most like, she says, "Brenda from Nicaragua and Parvati. They know what they want and how to get it. They truly understand the social game."

Why did she come on the show? " I thrive on challenge and the rush of competition. I always push the envelope and my limits. There's no better avenue to do this than 'Survivor.'" Why does she think she'll "survive" on the show? "I'm engaging, personable and a master at reading people. I'm controversial in many ways and I embrace that I'm a 'character.' I'm naturally athletic and can seamlessly blend into a group. I radiate confidence and always compete to win."

Why does she think she'll ultimately win? "It's not just my character traits that make me a winner. It's literally in my blood to survive. My Japanese grandfather spent his childhood in an internment camp. My German grandmother's family has strong, long-standing ties with the government and fled immediately before the war. My Native American grandfather was the son of a deaf mute who learned English as a second language on the reservation by age 9. I have a passion for competition and I am the product of generations of true survivors—their strength and resilience are a natural part of who I am.
