Misty Giles was born in Valdosta, Georgia.
The first of three children in a military family, she moved frequently
during her early years. She eventually settled in Texas, where she
attended Killeen High School. No stranger to competition, Giles
participated in varsity sports and later won the title of Miss Texas Teen
Giles' proudest accomplishment so far has been her ability to support
herself through college and earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in
Electrical Engineering from Southern Methodist University. She is
currently employed as an engineer by a premiere advanced technology
corporation and is pursuing a master's degree. Additionally, she is
training for her next big challenge, marathon running.
Giles describes herself as highly adventurous, determined and sexy. She
considers herself a "tomboy in high heels," as she was once the
only girl on her local little league baseball team. She values her faith
and work ethic as her best personal attributes. She has a passion for
youth and spends time mentoring young girls to help them prepare to be
strong and confident women. She has also lectured at motivational and
engineering seminars. She enjoys political discussions, running,
kickboxing, playing with her two Boston Terriers (Harley & Arthur),
and most of all, spending time with her close friends.
Giles believes her competitive nature and natural problem-solving skills
will help her get to the end of the game. Competing in the ultimate game
of survival and winning are her motivations for taking on SURVIVOR:
Currently single, Giles resides in Dallas. Her birth date is February 25,
