from my early exit on 'One World' and there is no better way to do that than with the love of my life and lifelong tribe mate, Brad. He's my guy and having my'shield' out there is an adventure in itself."

 Monica is a homemaker currently living in Tampa, Florida.

"Survivor: One World"

Monica Culpepper is the wife of nine-year NFL Defensive Tackle, Brad Culpepper, and mother of three straight "A" students. She was named both Homecoming Queen and Florida Outstanding Female Leader Graduate at University of Florida in 1991. She graduated with honors from University of Minnesota Physical Therapy School. She describes herself as loyal, tenacious and gritty.

She enjoys kickboxing, hiking, skeet shooting, riding four wheelers, snowboarding, wakeboarding, running, reading and volunteering in her community. Her pet peeves include "people who are two-faced, unappreciative and lazy. Also, messy cars!"

Who is her inspiration in life? "My husband without a doubt! He is the hardest working person I know. He was not only an All-American Football player at University of Florida, an Academic All-American, a Southeastern Conference Hall of Famer, and Vice President of the UF student body, but also finished with a Masters degree. He won the prestigious Campbell Award, making him the number one scholar athlete in the nation. Then he went on to the NFL where he played for nine seasons with the Vikings, Buccaneers, and Bears. He was All-Madden and the NFL's Unsung Hero Award winner. While playing in the NFL, he earned his law degree in the 'off- seasons.' Now, he has his own law firm and truly is a role model and a coach to me and many kids in our community. Best part is… I helped build him!"

Which "Survivor" contestant does Monica consider herself to be most like? "I can relate to Tina Wesson, the first female winner in 2001, because she was 40, had a career in the medical field and was happily married."

Monica wanted to be a contestant because, "I gave up my medical school and career dreams when I met my husband in college and have devoted the rest of my time to my family as a mother and a supportive spouse. It is my time to'step out' and see what grit I am made of…I'm ready to show I'm a 'Survivor'!"

She thinks she'll survive on the show because, "I am enthusiastic, pleasant to be around and a great motivator. I'm like a chameleon; I can get along with all kinds of people. Being great at multi-tasking, I am able to process and calculate clearly under stress." She believes she will ultimately win because, " I'm never afraid to go out on a limb when it comes to getting something I want."
