Redemption IslandEdit

Name (Age): Andrea Boehlke (21)
Tribe Designation: Ometepe
Current Residence: Random Lake, Wis.
Occupation: Student (University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point)
Personal Claim to Fame: Paying for my own college education and making the Dean's list every semester.
Inspiration in Life: My parents are my inspiration because they are hard-working, down-to-earth and both have a great sense of humor.
Hobbies: Sports, theater, horseback riding, hunting and outdoor activities.
Pet Peeves: "Girly-girls" and electric staplers.
3 Words to Describe You: Hard-working, competitive and outgoing.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Perhaps a mixture of J.T. Thomas because he is hard-working and has a farm background and Parvati Shallow because she's competitive and knows how to have fun, but I'm also very unique.
Reason for being on SURVIVOR: I crave adventures. I also want to prove how tough I am.
Why you think you'll "survive" SURVIVOR: Growing up on a farm and being a member of the 4-H club has made me both outdoorsy and resourceful. I'm also mentally tough and a bit of a social butterfly. I love being challenged and can handle the pressure.
Why you think you will be the sole SURVIVOR: People will underestimate me based on my looks, but I am tremendously competitive and driven. I'm feisty, brave and can manipulate people while remaining likeable.


Name (Age): Andrea Boehlke (23)
Tribe Designation: Bikal
Previous Season: Survivor: Redemption Island – 13th castaway voted out/ 8th Jury Member
Current Residence: New York City, N.Y.
Occupation: Entertainment Host and Writer
Personal Claim to Fame: Moving to New York from Wisconsin on a whim and I’m still here!
Inspiration in Life: My father, Royal Boehlke - he’s one of a kind!
Hobbies: Horseback riding, sports, traveling and getting paid to talk.
Pet Peeves: New York men who cat call women as we walk by. I don’t understand what that accomplishes.
3 Words to Describe You: Quirky, driven and fierce.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Yoga mat – It could serve as tarp/blanket/world’s shortest slip ‘n slide.  2) Juggling balls filled with rice – I’ve always wanted this. 3) A Unicorn, but not one that could fly.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I guess I’m a smidge like Stephenie LaGrossa when it comes to being a force in challenges and being a bit of a tomboy.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I can’t really get myself to turn down a second adventure of a lifetime, so here I go again!
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: Besides having the outdoors stuff down, I now have one season under my belt and aim to come out of the gate swinging. I’m hoping all of the crazy people will target each other right off the bat.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: There’s so much luck involved, but overall I am pretty good at making friends/alliances and can be pretty sneaky if I want to be. I plan to come out strong and aggressive in an all or nothing fashion and hopefully it works in my favor.

Survivor: Redemption IslandEdit

Andrea was played on the Ometepe tribe, which received Boston Rob Mariano as a member on Day 1 to complete the tribe. Andrea found herself as a part of his alliance, along with Natalie Tenerelli, Grant Mattos, Ashley Underwood, and Matt Elrod, outnumbering the rival alliance of Kristina Kell, Francesca Hogi, and Phillip Sheppard. Ometepe got off to a bad start, losing three out of the first four immunity challenges (and in that stretch, the only victory came as a result of Zapatera throwing the challenge so they could go to Tribal Council to eliminate Russell Hantz). Andrea's role in the alliance was as a vote against Kristina Kell for splitting the votes, since Kristina found the Hidden Immunity Idol early on in the game. However, Boston Rob started to lose trust in Andrea when noticing she and Matt were becoming closer to each other than with himself, even comparing them to himself and Amber Brkich from Survivor: All Stars. So on Day 5, Boston Rob went behind Andrea's back to blindside Matt, when Andrea thought the plan was to split the votes between Kristina and Phillip. Andrea was upset when Matt was sent to Redemption Island but she remained in Rob's alliance, which now included Phillip.

On Day 21, Matt returned to the game and the tribes merged, which meant Andrea was in the majority 7-5. However, Mike Chiesl became friends with Matt and Andrea and asked them to side with the Zapatera tribe, even offered to take them to the end instead of his former tribemates. Andrea considered it but once Matt told Rob about considering voting Rob off, Andrea felt that aligning with Matt could get her in trouble so she voted him off along with the rest of former Ometepe, sending Matt back to Redemption Island on Day 21.

Andrea would be in a good spot for the next several votes, in which she won an Individual Immunity Challenge on Day 24. However she was slowly finding her way down to the bottom of the alliance, being the hardest working of the Ometepe girls, and with Rob having a closer bond with Grant and preferring to take Natalie and Phillip to the end with him. Once all the Zapatera members were voted off, Andrea thought the next to go would be Phillip since he original belonged to Kristina's alliance. However, on Day 32, Andrea would be voted off 5-1 since she was seen as a threat. On Redemption Island, despite facing tough oppositions, Andrea won both of the duels she participated in and re-entered the game on Day 36. Andrea was glad to be back in the game but felt nervous because she was voted off once, it can easily happen again. However, since Ashley had recently won an Individual Immunity Challenge and was growing very close to Natalie, Rob planned on sparing Andrea should Ashley lose the Immunity Challenge on Day 37. However, Ashley won immunity, putting Andrea in the hot seat. Andrea did everything she could to convince the girls that they need to make a big move and vote Rob off since he's a major threat to win if he makes it to the end. However, at Tribal Council, the girls maintained their loyalty to Rob, and even if they flipped, Rob played his Hidden Immunity Idol just in case (since that was the last Tribal Council in which Idols could be played), so Andrea would be voted out of the game for good with a 4-0 vote, finishing in 5th place.

At Final Tribal Council, Andrea wasn't impressed by Natalie at all, she told Phillip that the only good thing that came out of dealing with him was that she became a much more patient person, and she didn't like Boston Rob's gameplay on a personal level. However, recognizing Boston Rob played a very strong game overall, Andrea voted for Boston Rob to win the title of Sole Survivor.

Like Phillip Sheppard, Andrea came into this season ready to play a more aggressive game as opposed to merely being a pawn. Andrea and Phillip restarted the Stealth R Us alliance from their original season and managed to vote off Francesca Hogi (their rival from their past season) on Day 3 while recruiting Malcolm Freberg, Corinne Kaplan, John Cochran, and Dawn Meehan. Despite having a solid alliance of 6, Andrea continued to play a strong strategic game, working on her friendship with volatile outsider Brandon Hantz along with trying to plot a plan to blindside Corinne, whom she didn't trust. Andrea was initially against Phillip giving names to everyone on Bikal (including outsiders Brenda Lowe and Erik Reichenbach but she didn't really care afterwards. She was one of the most affected players from Brandon's outrage in Persona Non Grata, and along with the rest of the tribe voted him off at the Impromptu Tribal Council.

Andrea ended up on Gota after the Tribe Swap and was in the majority along with Brenda, Erik, and Malcolm. Since the new Gota comprised of the stronger players won all the challenges, Andrea was immune until the merge.

Upon the merge, Andrea established a majority alliance consisting of all the Favorites along with a sub alliance consisting of herself, Cochran, Dawn, and Phillip. When Dawn informed her of Corinne's plan to vote off Phillip in the final 11 vote, Andrea became part of the campaign to vote off Corinne, managing to get potential swing votes Brenda and Erik in on the plan and Corinne was successfully voted off 7-5 on Day 22. Andrea would start to grow closer to Eddie Fox and managed to obtain information from him that she was a target for the next vote. Afraid of being blindsided by a Hidden Immunity Idol, Andrea convinced her alliance of Cochran, Brenda, Dawn, Erik, Phillip, and now Sherri Biethman to vote off Michael to play it safe. An idol would be played for Malcolm that Tribal Council but it was ineffective as Michael was voted off.

After Phillip was blindsided, Andrea stayed loyal to the Stealth R Us remnants to get rid of Malcolm and Reynold, going as far as following Malcolm around to prevent him from looking for another idol. However after Andrea and Brenda's battle in the first immunity challenge in The Beginning of the End, Andrea decided that Brenda was a big threat that needed to go. Erik found a Hidden Immunity Idol using Andrea's clue from the Auction and gave it to her, which made Andrea feel safe. However, when Andrea brought up blindsiding Brenda along with the fact that she had an idol, this concerned Cochran and Dawn. The Stealth R Us alliance minus Andrea made a plan to split the vote between Andrea and Eddie to get rid of Andrea's idol and they voted her off 3-2-2. Andrea finished in 7th place and became the first female player voted off in possession of an idol.

Andrea proved not to be bitter about her elimination in Ponderosa and at the Final Tribal Council. She asked Cochran to pick an animal that best suits how he played he game and he picked the chameleon. She reassured Dawn that she wasn't upset about how Dawn played the game, saying that she in fact was proud of her gameplay. Nonetheless she joined the entire jury in voting for Cochran to win the title of Sole Survivor.
