ProfileEdit

Name (Age): Jefra Bland (22)
Tribe Designation: Solana, Solarrion
Current Residence: Campbellsville, KY. Occupation: Miss Kentucky Teen USA
Personal Claim to Fame: Winning the title of Miss Kentucky Teen USA 2009 and making the Top 15 at Miss Teen USA.
Inspiration in Life: My dad, Jeff Bland, who overcame his 20 year prescription drug addiction and turned his life around into helping sponsor other recovering men and women.

Hobbies: Traveling, hunting and pageants.
Pet Peeves: People who have bad teeth and smack their gum.

3 Words to Describe You: Outspoken, charismatic and fierce.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? A disposable toothbrush, leather journal for writing and a photo of my family because they are the toughest people I know.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Chelsea Meissner as far as being a country girl and Kim Spradlin when it comes to being ballsy with big moves.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: The million dollar prize—I’m a broke college girl who is tired of eating Ramen noodles and wants to pay off my student loans and to open up a drug rehab with my dad. Also, to prove that pageant girls aren’t just cute faces, we are also smart.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’m in shape and can last in challenges.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: In my 22 years of life, I have already survived cervical cancer, losing everything financially, the disease of addiction and more. It takes a fighter to survive this world and that’s what I am.

Do You Consider Yourself a Brain, a Beauty or a Brawn? I consider myself a Beauty. In my opinion, beauty is far more than just skin deep and true beauty comes from the heart.

Who Do You Think Has the Best Chance in the Game of Survivor: Brains, Beauty or Brawn?
I think to win the game of Survivor, you have to have a combination of all three. It takes a well-rounded person, who is quick to react in situations, can strategize and form alliances and can handle the physical endurance of the game.

Survivor: CagayanEdit

Jefra began the game on the Solana (dubbed the "beauty") tribe. During the first eight days, Jefra formed close friendships with Alexis Maxwell and LJ McKanas, joining in an alliance with them and Jeremiah Wood. At Solana's only pre-swap Tribal Council, Jefra aided her alliance in splitting the votes and eliminating Brice Johnston.

At the Day 12 Tribe Switch, Jefra remained on Solana along with LJ. Despite being outnumbered 5-2 by the former Aparri members, Jefra and LJ formed a bond with Trish Hegarty who attempted to convince Tony Vlachos to ally with them and blindside Cliff Robinson. Despite being hesitant to work with the original Solana members, Tony followed Trish's advice and sided with Jefra, eliminating Cliff in a 4-3 vote.

After the tribes merged into Solarrion on Day 17, Jefra was targeted by the rival Aparri Alliance for being the least likely to possess Solana's Hidden Immunity Idol. Luckily for her, Trish convinced Kass McQuillen to defect to the Solana Alliance, sparing Jefra from elimination.

Despite feeling confident in her alliance, Jefra was surprised when Tony and Woo Hwang voted with the Aparri Alliance and blindsided her closest ally LJ. Shaken by Tony's betrayal, Jefra pondered flipping to the Aparri Alliance and eliminating him. However, after talking with Trish, she decided against this and voted out Jeremiah with the rest of the Solana Alliance.

After Spencer Bledsoe failed to win Immunity on Day 30, Jefra's alliance agreed to vote him out. However, Spencer informed Tony that Jefra had considered aligning with the former Aparri members against him. This act convinced Tony and Woo to switch their votes from Spencer to Jefra at Tribal Council, blindsiding her in a 4-3 vote. Jefra became the 5th member of the Jury and ultimately voted for Tony to be the Sole Survivor.
