Aubry Bracco is a contestant from Survivor: Kaôh Rōng.
Starting off as a vulnerable member of the Brains tribe, Aubry managed to emerge from her shell to become a major strategic player in her season. She worked with close ally Cydney to found the dominating alliance of the season, which gave her a spot in the Final Tribal Council. However, her social game proved to be lacking to her competitor's, and cost her the victory in the end.

Name (Age): Aubry Bracco (29)
Tribe Designation: Brains
Current Residence: Cambridge, Mass.
Occupation: Social Media Marketer
Personal Claim to Fame: My name (it means "leader of the elves") and the way I pursued my education with my own style. I convinced my advisers at Brown University to let me write a children's book about a manatee instead of a 50-page thesis and went on to graduate with honors.
Inspiration in Life: My grandmother, Madeline. She dealt with a crazy Brooklyn Italian family and was a hard worker. She was the first Woman of the Year at the New York Daily News and never let anything get her down (she once went back to work the day after a major car accident). She also had a wacky personality—as kids she told us she didn't eat chicken because "their legs were too close to their butts."
Hobbies: Crayon art, running, meeting locals in new places and astrology.
Pet Peeves: People who are not self-aware, don't know how to listen actively or give fake compliments. Close second: scented things covering bad smells.
3 Words to Describe You: Beguiling, intuitive and relentless.
If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? 1. Crayons – (preferably a 64-pack with built-in sharpener) to hold an art therapy session to calm everyone down. Plus, they smell good. 2. Camera – to document the adventure. 3. Astrology books – I want to know who I'm dealing with and what motivates people.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Love child of Sophie and Cochran. Hair of Shambo.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I love SURVIVOR. Since I was 15, I've watched. As complicated as the game is, there's something so simple, authentic and raw. I have deep respect for the timelessness and evolution of the game.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" SURVIVOR: I'm a hard worker who never gives up, and I'd entertain people by pulling a Greg Buis and being a weirdo. People would think I was doing this to be funny and pass time, but I'd actually be extracting key details. After living in Salem, MA during several Halloweens, I've learned to embrace my quirkiness and work with outlandish personalities.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I'm an expert listener and a journalist at heart so I'm inherently observant and social. I look for the most genuine and self-aware person in the room so I can connect with them, and I'm on the prowl for the most fake person in the room so I know what I'm dealing with. I want to prove to myself that I have what it takes to manage personalities under pressure with $1,000,000 on the line.
Aubry began her Survivor journey on the Brains tribe as a fan of the game. Due to the intense Cambodian heat, she was struck by a panic attack from the elements, and contemplated quitting. However, her tribe encouraged her to stay. She did not attend Tribal Council until Day 9, after Chan Loh narrowly lost the third Immunity Challenge.
Then, she found that her former allies, Liz and Peter, had been plotting against her and Neal. Debbie took advantage of the situation and leaked the information to Aubry. Aubry and Neal decided to join up with Debbie and Joe in executing a split vote plan to blindside either of the deceitful duo. At Tribal Council, Aubry made the right decision to join with her new allies. Even though Liz and Peter had cast their votes against her, Debbie, Joe, and Neal saved her by blindsiding Liz to leave Peter on the bottom of the tribe. Chan Loh won the next Immunity Challenge, and abstained from Tribal Council.
On Day 12, the tribes switched. Aubry was separated from her allies, and was placed on the new Gondol tribe with Joe and enemy Peter. The three Brains decided to put their past conflict aside in order to blindside Anna at Gondol's first Tribal Council so as to prevent the Beauties from gaining a numbers' advantage. Gondol won the next Reward Challenge, but lost the Immunity Challenge due to Peter's poor stacking strategy.
The Gondol Alliance approached Aubry for her vote by throwing Peter under the bus. Aubry contemplated flipping, but her ally Joe was adamant about sticking to tribal lines despite having been targeted by Peter. Aubry was the swing vote between Julia and Peter. At Tribal Council, she initially wrote Julia's name down, but infamously struck it out, ultimately changing her vote to Peter. This not only created tension between her and Joe, but also between her and the Gondol Alliance, which she had just helped. Scot found her to be overly fickle, and vowed to get either of the surviving Brains out at Gondol's next possible opportunity. Fortunately for Aubry, the tribes merged the very next day. She was reunited with allies Neal and Debbie.
However, Debbie utilized strong-arm tactics in order to get the Beauties to vote with the Brains, and this alienated the entire group of Brains. The Beauties decided to gang up with the Brawns, and set their eyes on Aubry and Neal. Aubry failed to win immunity, and prepared for the worst. Then, Neal was evacuated due to an infection. Despite being saved for the cycle, Aubry was devastated that her main ally in the game had been taken away from her.
The Brains trio seemed to be facing insurmountable odds. To make matters worse, Aubry's team lost the following Reward Challenge, which served to cripple her morale even more. She recouped, however, and was thankful for the miracle which came when Cydney grew paranoid of her own alliance. Cydney decided to form a women's alliance, and the Brains were given a second chance. At Dara's first Tribal Council, Nick was shocked by his blindside. The turn of events opened a rift between the women and the men of the tribe. Aubry was shocked when Julia showed openness to the prospect of flipping to the less likable group of men, who had burned their bridges with their antics. Aubry led a charge against her, but her plan was thwarted by Julia's immunity win. She saw that Debbie was feeding information to the double agent, and shifted the target to her, resulting in yet another blindside.
Aubry formed a close relationship with Tai, and was able to convince him to abandon his alliance by withholding his Hidden Immunity Idol, blindsiding Jason and Scot when the latter looked to Tai for protection. This allowed Aubry's alliance to take Julia and Jason out in the next two Tribal Councils.
At the final five, Aubry ostracized Michele when she picked long-time ally Cydney for the reward - a trip to a spa - which Joe had won. While the three enjoyed their reward, Joe gorged excessively on the meats. This came back to haunt him when he was ailed by an issue with his urinary tract. Aubry faced déjà vu when Joe was pulled from the game, losing yet another close ally to an untimely evacuation.
Aubry won the final four Reward Challenge, and opted to take Cydney. Michele and Tai plotted against them while they enjoyed their meal. Aubry and Cydney decided to dispose of Michele - a major jury threat - with Tai's help. However, when Michele won immunity, they had to turn on each other. Aubry secured Tai's support, and he was able to force a tie. Aubry and Cydney competed in a fire-making tiebreaker, and emotionally eliminated Cydney. However, she was glad to find herself in the Final Three.
Michele won the final Reward Challenge, which gave her the right to deny a juror of his voting rights. Aubry campaigned for Scot's ouster in order to keep her two guaranteed votes - Neal and Joe - on the jury box. Ultimately, Michele decided to remove Neal, who she found to be an eloquent and avid supporter of Aubry.
Aubry entered Final Tribal Council as a major strategist of the season. However, the jurors deemed Aubry's social connections with them to be severely lacking in comparison to Michele's. Aubry earned Joe and Nick's jury votes, but lost to Michele in a 5-2-0 final vote.
