Shannon Quinn is a contestant from Survivor NZ: Nicaragua.


How would you describe yourself? Super enthusiastic, competitive and a little bit gumby.

Why are you doing Survivor? I'm a huge fan of the show and I really want to challenge myself and see how far I can go.

What did you do to prepare? Lots of running, swimming, weights and eating! I also binge-watched past Survivor series to get an idea of strategies that could work for me.

What are your pet peeves? Burping!

What's your strategy? Work hard, win challenges and gain everybody's trust. The weaker players tend to go first – until the merge, and then the strongest become the targets.
