Chelsea Meissner is a contestant from Survivor: One World.

Known for her southern charm, as well for being one of only three contestants that remained loyal to the Salani Alliance, Chelsea was chosen over Alicia Rosa by swing voter Kim Spradlin to make the cut for the Final Three in the critical final five voting. At the Final Tribal Council, Chelsea argued her loyal game and partnership with Spradlin, but her game was overshadowed and considered to have ridden the coattails of Spradlin, and she lost to the latter in a 7-2-0 jury vote, receiving zero votes to win, thus placing third.
