Marisa Calihan Rhy is a contestant from Survivor: Samoa.

ProfileEdit

Marisa Calihan is no stranger to surviving off the land. This 1st generation Appalachian was born on a farm in Ohio and learned many of her survival skills from her father. Growing up with eight siblings, in a blended family with many adopted children, Marisa learned from an early age how to take care of herself. “I am paying my own way through school and have been on my own since I was 17.”

Aside from her early roots in farming, Marisa also has experience working in third world conditions. While abroad, she worked with street children in poor countries with no plumbing or running water and it changed her life. Although after eight years of being a free spirit and living abroad in such places as El Salvador and Spain, Marisa returned home to go back to school and help take care of her family.

For Marisa, the money would go a long way in making her family’s lives better and helping her achieve a few long term goals. “There are so many things I can do if I just had a nest egg to start with. I won’t have to fight tooth and nail for everything, if I just had a little bit of money.”

Resourceful and creative, Marisa believes she has what it takes to persevere and become the sole SURVIVOR.

Marisa is single and currently resides in Cincinnati, Ohio. Her birth date is July 26.

Survivor: SamoaEdit

Marisa began the season on the Foa Foa tribe. Almost immediately, Marisa was recruited by Russell Hantz to be in his 'dumb girl alliance'. She reluctantly joined with suspicion of Russell, however she took no action at the time.

After Foa Foa lost the first Immunity Challenge, Marisa asked Russell why he was going to other tribe members and telling them the same things that he had originally told her. Angered by Marisa's lack of trust, Russell went and spread the word to vote Marisa out. Thus at Tribal Council, Marisa was the first person voted out in a 7-3 vote.
