New "Survivor" Cast Announced

By admin Published: January 18, 2012

The new season starts Feb. 15, pits men against women and will have both tribes living on the same beach. Picture below.

After the jump, cast details.

Name (Age): Nina Acosta (51)

Tribe Designation: Salani

Current Residence: Clovis, Calif.

Occupation: Retired LAPD Officer

Personal Claim to Fame: Receiving a full-ride basketball scholarship to Santa Clara University, finding the perfect husband and, of course, my kids.

Inspiration in Life: My mom – she was a feminist before it was acceptable. She taught me to be confident and encouraged me to pick sports over cheerleading.

Hobbies: Working out, cooking, gardening and target shooting.

Pet Peeves: I hate whining, being called a “girl” and rude drivers.

Three Words to Describe You: Tenacious, competitive and confident.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Stephenie LaGrossa, because she was tough and stood up for herself, and Sue Hawk, because she spoke her mind.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to prove that a 50+-year-old woman can compete. I love challenges, both physical and mental. The money would also be a great help to my kids with college.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I thrive on being a team player; I have a never-quit attitude and I can deal with pain and discomfort.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: In 1991 and 1993 I competed for the SWAT Team. Both times the two-week tryouts took place in Camp Pendleton and I was the only woman competing against 19 men. There were 40 SWAT officers judging the process. Neither the competitors nor the SWAT members wanted me there. I had to mentally, emotionally and physically challenge myself everyday.

Name (Age): Jay Byars (25)

Tribe Designation: Manono

Current Residence: Gaffney, S.C.

Occupation: Model

Personal Claim to Fame: Being a part of four different mission trips to four different countries.

Hobbies: Working out, indoor rock climbing and motocross.

Pet Peeves: Smacking gum, bad breath and clingy texters.

Three Words to Describe You: Active, daring and charming.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Colby or Rupert. They tried to play the game fair and honest, but they didn’t have the physical ability to perform. I would choose their game play and my physicality.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To experience life in an exciting and challenging way. I want to discover who I am and see if I can really outsmart everyone.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I have heart. Plus, I’m very level-headed. I’m going to be calm and consistent when people are breaking down.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I know that I have the will and the skill to make it to the end. I have overcome a lot in life, and who you are is how you play. I’m a winner.

Name (Age): Christina Cha (29)

Tribe Designation: Salani

Current Residence: Hollywood, Calif.

Occupation: Career Consultant

Personal Claim to Fame: Senior year of college when I was president, my class won 5th place amongst several universities for the Honda Fit Advertisement Campaign.

Inspiration in Life: Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, with his inspiration of enrollment and empowerment in transforming people in non-violence movement, and Winston Churchill. I know they contradict. However, Churchill is one of the most sophisticated and insightful politicians who will go down in history as one of the world’s most admired leaders.

Hobbies: Snowboarding, writing and hiking.

Pet Peeves: When people have poor follow-up skills.

Three Words to Describe You: Fearless, unstoppable and empowering.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Kristina on “Redemption Island,” because she likes to take the lead and stands up for herself. I’m the same way. My sense of humor, though, is very sarcastic and dry like Francesca Hogi.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to play the game because I know I can do it and it looks like so much fun! I also hope this show will bring my family closer together.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’m very great at delegating, instructing, leading, organizing and problem-solving. I can build a fire, fish, spear fish (sort of) and build shelter.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Survivor needs a funny, goofy and cute Asian girl! It’s time to represent.

Name (Age): Monica Culpepper (41)

Tribe Designation: Salani

Current Residence: Tampa, Fla.

Occupation: Ex-NFL Player’s Wife

Personal Claim to Fame: Homecoming Queen at University of Florida in 1991, University of Florida Outstanding Female Leader Graduate in 1991, Graduated with Honors from University of Minnesota Physical Therapy School, Wife of University of Florida and nine-year NFL Defensive Tackle, Brad Culpepper, and mother of three straight-A students.

Inspiration in Life: My husband, without a doubt! He is the hardest-working person I know. He was not only an All-American Football player at University of Florida, an Academic All-American, a Southeastern Conference Hall of Famer and Vice President of the UF student body, but also finished with a master’s degree. He won the prestigious Campbell Award, making him the #1 scholar athlete in the nation. Then he went on to the NFL, where he played for nine seasons with the Vikings, Buccaneers and Bears. He was All-Madden and the NFL’s Unsung Hero Award winner. While playing in the NFL, he earned his law degree in the "off-seasons." Now, he has his own law firm and truly is a role model and a coach to me and many kids in our community. Best part is… I helped build him!

Hobbies: Kickboxing, hiking, skeet shooting, riding four wheelers, snowboarding, wakeboarding, running, reading and volunteering in my community.

Pet Peeves: People who are two-faced, unappreciative and lazy. Also, messy cars!

Three Words to Describe You: Loyal, tenacious and gritty.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I can relate to Tina Wesson, the first female winner in 2001, because she was 40, had a career in the medical field and was happily married.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I gave up my medical school and career dreams when I met my husband in college and have devoted the rest of my time to my family as a mother and a supportive spouse. It is my time to “step out” and see what grit I am made of… I’m ready to show I’m a Survivor!

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I am enthusiastic, pleasant to be around and a great motivator. I’m like a chameleon; I can get along with all kinds of people. Being great at multi-tasking, I am able to process and calculate clearly under stress.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I’m never afraid to go out on a limb when it comes to getting something I want.

Name (Age): Colton Cumbie (21)

Tribe Designation: Manono

Current Residence: Monroeville, Ala.

Occupation: College Student

Personal Claim to Fame: I came out as gay when I was 12-years-old, in sixth grade in South Alabama. My parents definitely did not run out to join Parents of Lesbian and Gay (PFLAG), and it took a long time, but they came around. It was weird at school, but I didn’t play the victim and run home to cry. I stood up for myself and explained that being gay wasn’t who I was but part of who I am.

Inspiration in Life: My nanny/grandmother, who is technically my great-aunt, but she and her husband took my mom in when she was 2 months old after her dad abandoned her. My grandmother is the most amazing person I know. She is literally my 73-year-old best friend! She has been there for me through everything, definitely the biggest impact on who I am today.

Hobbies: Socializing, watching reality TV and writing.

Pet Peeves: Ugly people who think they’re hot.

Three Words to Describe You: Adorable, entertaining and opinionated.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: As far as my personality goes, I would be a mix of Queen Parvati, Corinne and JT. I embody three of their distinctive traits: heartlessness (in a loveable way), low tolerance for trash and that people hate me but still want to be my best friend.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to play the game! The strategy, the challenges, I want it all! I don’t care about the fame or whether people love or hate me. I would love nothing more than to see my verbally abusive stepdad’s reaction when I win a million dollars on national TV.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I live my life as I if I’m playing Survivor! I have a strategy for everything. Hell, the way I got my boyfriend was a strategy.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I don’t believe, I know! There has never been anyone with the social skills and charisma I possess on this show. I’m confident, hilarious, athletic, good-looking, adorable and I have good teeth with a hint of Southern charm. What more could you want?

Name (Age): Kat Edorsson (22)

Tribe Designation: Salani

Current Residence: Orlando, Fla.

Occupation: Timeshare Rep

Personal Claim to Fame: I would have to say my accomplishments come from school and work. Although I only work part-time, I am a top producer at my company. I’m also working on my BS at University of Central Florida.

Inspiration in Life: I am not the average girl who has a normal hero. Essentially, if I were normal I would either choose Abraham Lincoln or Donald Trump, but my hero is fiction. Her name is Xena. She is the warrior princess, who serves as my alter ego. In her series she changes from simple farm girl to an Amazon warrior, recognizing and pursing challenges for the greater good. She is my hero and I could only wish I can be half the woman she is.

Hobbies: Riding horses, fishing, all sports.

Pet Peeves: Long lines at the DMV, seat belts on airplanes, girly girls and small children with leashes.

Three Words to Describe You: Competitive, eager and passionate.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Andrea is my favorite. She’s blonde, a farm girl and loves a challenge. She was able to play and get ahead in the game despite her sweet look on the outside, just like me — for example, she wasn’t afraid to throw Matt under the bus to save herself.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to conquer the challenges, proving not only that I can survive the obstacles but that I will be the ultimate survivor.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: My skills to manipulate and socialize will ultimately help me survive Survivor. I have always taken the “leader role” with my friends, family and co-workers. I build relationships, talk my way out of tickets and socialize my way to the top. My skill set is very strong and it comes to me naturally, like breathing. I definitely think I will be an important member of the group.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: My life has already played this game and I won. I have faced life and death situations at a very young age. I’m a fighter and I’ll never quit. I’m very good at getting my way, talking people into things and ultimately marketing and selling myself. I may be a 22-year-old blonde but I’m much tougher than I look. I want to be the youngest female to ever win the game!

Name (Age): Michael Jefferson (30)

Tribe Designation: Manono

Current Residence: Seattle, Wash.

Occupation: Banker

Inspiration in Life: My dad is my hero. He is the man I want to be like. I have learned so many great skills from him that I’ll have for a lifetime.

Hobbies: Working out, kayaking and soccer.

Pet Peeves: Annoying eaters, bad breath, people who grunt while working out, and people that “need” a cigarette.

Three Words to Describe You: A leader, ambitious and organized.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: First, Ethan since he played a very clean game and did very well, and Rupert, because I speak my mind from my heart, not my head.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: It’s my mom’s dream (Survivor is her favorite show) for me to be on and win. Also, I see it as my chance to travel to a new part of the world.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I am a natural leader who knows when to keep my mouth shut. People always listen to my opinions and I am a hard worker. I am very much a people person and with all the back-stabbing that goes on with Survivor, I don’t see it happening to me.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I am a very driven person and can usually get what I want. I am a natural leader but will gladly step aside to take the spotlight off of me. I am also a very persuasive person who has learned to keep your enemies close so that it’s easier to control and predict their movements. I am unstoppable!

Name (Age): Leif Manson (27)

Tribe Designation: Manono

Current Residence: San Diego, Calif.

Occupation: Phlebotomist

Personal Claim to Fame: Smoking the best turkey, roasts and meats for big family events. Also, meeting and working with Billy Barty and Mickey Rooney in the same day.

Inspiration in Life: My daughter, who I want to provide the best life for. My closest family and friends, who have been there for me when I fall, and pushed me higher when I succeed. My father-in-law, because he is a perfect role model. Not only is he brilliant, selfless, dependable, but he is also patient and always willing to give great advice.

Hobbies: Paintballing, snowboarding and weight-lifting.

Pet Peeves: Being taken advantage of and back-stabbers.

Three Words to Describe You: Agile, adventurous and perseverant.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Fabio, because his wit and skills were misjudged and underestimated but he outplayed them all in the end.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To build my own self-confidence and to become more knowledgeable on what to “survive” truly means.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I am knowledgeable about the wilderness; I can tell direction without a compass regardless of day or night. I can fish and build fire without using modern tools. I’m definitely a handy man and very physically fit and strong.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Because I am beyond willing, ready and able to “outwit, outplay and outlast” all the others.

Name (Age): Chelsea Meissner (26)

Tribe Designation: Salani

Current Residence: Charleston, S.C.

Name (Age): Kourtney Moon (29)

Tribe Designation: Salani

Current Residence: Austin, Texas

Occupation: Motorcycle Repair

Personal Claim to Fame: Easy – I grew a person inside my body, squeezed him out of a tiny orifice and managed not to completely bomb at parenting (so far). He’s actually the neatest person I know. Unrelated to making human beings, I would have to say honestly, maintaining my sanity through the mental and emotional torture I have endured in just the past few years.

Inspiration in Life: Life inspiration? I'd have to say there is no particular person. There are many individuals who have taught me valuable lessons, whether they meant to or not, and whether they had good intentions or not. People who seek to truly be altruistic are huge inspirations for me.

Hobbies: Doing just about anything with my son, motorcycles, knitting, cocktails and night time bike rides.

Pet Peeves: I’ve had bad, bad experiences with people who have low moral codes. I just have no patience for hypocrisy and folks who regularly enjoy the smell of their own farts. Lack of respect for monogamy is a huge pet peeve of mine, as well as people who chew others and spit them out simply because they can... basically, sociopaths and narcissists.

Three Words to Describe You: Creative, scatter-brained and impulsive.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Jud and Courtney because they reacted or handled situations the way I probably would have. They appeared to be very genuine characters, knew what their attributes were and accepted their shortcomings. They also seemed to maintain their sanity when things got rough.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I need the money and want the experience. Traveling, meeting new people, opening new doors, getting the hell out of the Austin bubble for a little while… I severely need a drastic change in my life, preferably one that won't kill me. I think I’m going to walk away from this permanently changed… but for the better.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I have great diplomatic skills and I’m a good mediator. I often see a person’s positive side over the negative, which makes me very forgiving and accepting. I have no problem leading, following or getting out of the way when appropriate.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Because nothing in this world makes any sense whatsoever and anything really is possible.

Name (Age): Jonas Otsuji (37)

Tribe Designation: Manono

Current Residence: Lehi, Utah

Inspiration in Life: My wife and children give me huge inspiration!

Hobbies: Cooking, eating, vacationing with family and surfing.

Pet Peeves: People that constantly complain.

Three Words to Describe You: Passionate, determined and motivated.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Fabio. I'm perceived as being very care-free on the outside, but on the inside I'm an intense competitor.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To prove to myself and family that I can do this and to win the prize, of course.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I know how to fish, make fire, shelter and cook amazing food.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I believe I could be the final Survivor because I have a proven track record of doing what I set out to achieve. I can make fire, build shelter, cook and get along with people to win their votes.

Name (Age): Bill Posley (28)

Tribe Designation: Manono

Current Residence: Venice, Calif.

Occupation: Stand-Up Comedian

Personal Claim to Fame: First male in my family to go to college.

Three Words to Describe You: Funny, adaptable and persistent.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: Athletic, ex-military experience, intelligence, competitive spirit, ability to adapt and being a team player.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I am physically capable; I make a great teammate and would do whatever it takes.

Name (Age): Matt Quinlan (33)

Tribe Designation: Manono

Current Residence: San Francisco, Calif.

Occupation: Attorney

Personal Claim to Fame: Starting my own law firm, the Law Offices of Matthew J. Quinlan. I take my career and my commitment to my clients very seriously. Being able to set up MJQLAW so that I can make a difference in the lives of my clients is probably the thing I am most proud of in my life.

Inspiration in Life: I aim to maximize my potential in everything I do. It is what keeps me pushing every day. Of course, “potential” is an elusive thing, but I look forward to chasing it for the rest of my life.

Hobbies: Golf, fitness and all things sports.

Pet Peeves: Complaining, pessimism and over-the-top subjectivity.

Three Words to Describe You: Ambitious, optimistic and dependable.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I have seen a lot of Survivor and can’t recall a past contestant that reminds me of myself, so I have to answer this question with “nobody.” I don’t plan on playing this game like any past Survivor. In fact, if someone’s plan is to play like a past contestant they are probably both in over their heads and in real trouble. If I have it my way, I will be playing a bold, evolved and innovative game that I hope takes Survivor game play to its inevitable next level.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: Who wouldn’t want to be on Survivor? I feel extremely fortunate to be given an opportunity that millions of people would give anything for and won’t take it for granted for even a minute. America will see me give everything I have to the game! I owe that to myself and all the Survivor fans out there.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’ll die out there before I quit. The only way I am leaving that island is with a tag on my toe or with a snuffed torch.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I think I have a lot of attributes that will help me succeed in the game: athleticism, charisma, smarts, etc. That said, these things are also going to make me a target in the game of Survivor, so figuring out how to use these traits in a non-intimidating way will be the key to my success.

Name (Age): Alicia Rosa (25)

Tribe Designation: Salani

Current Residence: Chicago, Ill.

Occupation: Special Ed Teacher

Personal Claim to Fame: Completing my master’s degree, as I am the first in my family to do so.

Inspiration in Life: I have yet to find someone to call my hero. I just continue to strive and work hard so that one day I might be considered an inspiration to someone.

Hobbies: Singing, running and spending money.

Pet Peeves: Bad manners (burping, farting), rushing and people who talk about themselves.

Three Words to Describe You: Confident, funny and ambitious.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Jenna Morasca from Season One, because she was the underdog; though she wasn’t necessarily strong, she was definitely a strategist.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I’ll make good TV.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’m educated, intelligent and can strategize.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: People will underestimate me because of my good looks, and I will show everyone how powerful I can be by using them to my advantage.

Name (Age): Troy Robertson (50)

Tribe Designation: Manono

Current Residence: Miami, Fla.

Occupation: Swimsuit Photographer

Three Words to Describe You: Adventurous, determined and entertaining.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I need this challenge for myself more than you will ever know! I want to know “how” and “who” I am in a major competition like this. This show is all I have thought about and concentrated on in the past 11 years! I need to know dreams come true.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’m a true outdoorsman. I can make a fire with two sticks. I am a swimmer and a natural-born leader. I have the ability to make people the best they can be. I have great animal instincts and swim like a dolphin.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I believe it’s my destiny. Truthfully, because I believe 100% that Survivor was created for me. I’ve been waiting 10 years and nothing will stop me! I have the skills and energy for every single category played on Survivor. There is not a single person on this planet more suited for this adventure!

Name (Age): Greg Smith, M.D. (64)

Current Residence: San Antonio, Texas

Inspiration in Life: My dad. He has this amazing way about him that draws people to him. He makes everything feel special — vacations, movies, lunch at Subway, me. He is never afraid and funny as hell. He gives the most amazing and perfectly timed pep talks!

Hobbies: Sand volleyball, reading and hanging out with really cool people.

Pet Peeves: Speed bumps, corny humor, people who honk to reprimand rather than as a warning, and really bad bridesmaid dresses (there’s no reason for that, really).

Three Words to Describe You: Passionate, warm and funny/awkward.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Probably Stephenie LaGrossa from Palau, because she’s a bad-ass (total honey badger). Also, Elisabeth Hasselbeck because she was friendly but competitive and Amanda because she is tall.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: Truly for the thrill of it! Stepping away from the comfort of my little world and challenging myself. Proving I can do as well at this game as I’ve always thought I could.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: My mental toughness, wicked throwing arm (for a girl), and people sometimes underestimate my sneakiness.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I believe in treating all people with respect and honor. Why would you vote off someone who respects you?

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Sandra Diaz-Twine, she’s a beast! She’s likable but it’s definitely about business. I appreciate her blunt style.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: The challenge. Many things come easily to me so I want to see if this will be the ultimate challenge.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: My skills as a supreme persuader because I used to book guests for talk shows. I adapt to all personalities since I teach high school in Brooklyn, and my athleticism and excellent communication ability.
