Retrieved from CBS.com
Name (Age): Kristina Kell (46)
Tribe Designation: Ometepe
Current Residence: Malibu, Calif.
Occupation: Law Student (University of La Verne College of Law)
Personal Claim to Fame: Understanding and learning how to deal with an autistic child; grasping the Autistic Spectrum and obtaining vigorous early intervention services to improve the quality of my son's life. This experience, and helping other families facing the same crisis, was the catalyst for my legal education.
Inspiration in Life: Probably the men and women of our armed forces - these brave folks sweat, bleed and die for us here at home, and I appreciate them beyond words.
Pet Peeves: Whining and people who are cheap.
3 Words to Describe You: Stubborn, logical and fair.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: None.
Reason for being on SURVIVOR: The money and experience.
Why you think you'll "survive" SURVIVOR: I'm resourceful and tough as nails. If you don't know that lying and manipulation is a part of this game, then you're an idiot.
Why you think you will be the Sole Survivor: There are a lot of amazing things in my life, and they all have started out with the thought, "I'm gonna do…(fill in the blank)." Whether it's making documentaries, opening my business, helping families cope with children on the Autistic Spectrum, going to law school, or winning SURVIVOR, they all start in my head as an idea. I take baby steps, one by one, until finally it's done.
Survivor: Redemption Island
Kristina was placed on the Ometepe tribe. From the start, Kristina felt on the outs with her tribe. She became good friends with Francesca Hogi and frenemies with Phillip Sheppard; thus an alliance was born. When their tribe lost the first Immunity Challenge, they tried to work out a plan to keep themselves in the game, despite the fact that they knew they were in the minority. Kristina searched around camp for the Hidden Immunity Idol and found it. She showed it to Francesca, and then Phillip. However, at Tribal Council, Phillip was confused by Francesca's statement when she said that they were not going to vote Rob Mariano off, revealing Kristina's idol to the entire tribe, which caused Kristina, Phillip, and Francesca to argue. Rob offered to protect Kristina from the vote if she gave him the idol, but she kept it. She decided not to use it, while her ally Francesca was voted out. This put Kristina in a precarious position, being alienated from her tribe.
After losing another Immunity Challenge, Kristina knew that Rob and his alliance were going to flush out her idol, so she played it, only to waste it as Rob swerved the vote to an unsuspecting Matt Elrod. She was still on the outs in her tribe, but so was Phillip. She tried to sit back and let him self-destruct to dig his own grave, though she need not to worry, as Ometepe won the Day 8 challenge.
Knowing that her idol was rehidden, she tried to look for it (unknown to everybody, Boston Rob already found it). After Ometepe lost the Day 11 Immunity Challenge, she was the clear choice for elimination, and she was sent to Redemption Island. Unfortunately, she lost the subsequent duel against Matt, eliminating her from the competition.
