Retrieved from CBS.com
Born and raised in Hood River, Oregon, Brooke attended Oregon State University, where she received her bachelor's degree with honors in political science and international studies with a minor in Spanish. After a year of volunteering for AmeriCorps, Struck began law school at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. She received her Juris Doctor degree in May 2005. Struck has lived abroad in both Spain and the U.K.
Struck is very athletic and describes herself as enthusiastic, driven and intelligent, a great problem solver and a creative thinker. She believes these skills and her competitive spirit will make her a useful member of the tribe. Having grown up on a farm in rural Oregon, she frequently went hiking, camping and backpacking. Her motivation for being on the show is to win the game and to prove to herself she has the strength and skills to survive 39 days in the wild.
Struck's hero is her mother, whom she admires for always making others a priority over herself. Struck's father passed away when she was 11 years old, leaving her mom with three young children and a farm to run. Her mother's patience, faith and kindness set the greatest example for how to live life.
Struck's hobbies include skiing, traveling and playing Frisbee with her dog, Toast, who is half golden retriever, half border collie.
Currently single, Struck resides in Hood River, Oregon. Her birth date is July 30, 1979.
Brooke was placed on the Nakúm tribe initially. The first challenge was an eleven-mile hike through the Guatemalan jungle. Brooke's tribe won the challenge, along with a better camp than the rival tribe, Yaxhá. Nakúm lost the first Immunity Challenge, and the men were feeling sick and tired out. Brooke voted with the rest of the tribe to get rid of Jim Lynch, the next weakest member.
Nakúm won the next two Immunity Challenges, and Brooke did not do much to stand out. On Day 10, a tribe switch occurred. Brooke stayed on Nakúm with Judd Sergeant, Cindy Hall, and Margaret Bobonich and new Yaxhá members Stephenie LaGrossa, Rafe Judkins, Lydia Morales, and Jamie Newton. The new Nakúm tribe lost immunity, and Brooke was targeted by the former Yaxhá tribe for not being athletic. Meanwhile, the Nakúm women stuck together and targeted Lydia. Judd was the deciding vote, and in the end, he turned on his original tribe and sent Brooke home in a 5-3 vote.
