Jessica Kiper prides herself on being flirty and fun. When
she is not acting, this 29 year old works as a waitress named
"Sugar" at '50s diners and enjoys singing and making music.
Friends describe this single, free-spirit as crazy, funny and cool.
Currently, this blonde pin-up model lives in Brooklyn, N.Y. with her dog,
"Major P. Pants," but has spent time living in various places
throughout the country including Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, and San
Francisco and Los Angeles, California.
Jessica can be a bit of a goofball and her laugh is contagious. Although
at first glance she may not look tough, despite being adorned with several
tattoos, Kiper has been through a lot in her life, including the recent
death of her father, whom she called her hero. Despite the struggles she's
faced, Kiper has always come out on top. She is ready to bring her spunk,
positive attitude and bubbly personality into the game of SURVIVOR and
hopes to grow as a person after the experience and win enough money to
"get off people's couches."
Jessica was born on February 22, 1979.
Jessica: "Sometimes people come up to me and tell me
I look like Marilyn Monroe. That has been happening since I was 12 so I used
to impersonate her. My nickname is Sugar, I got it at a 50's diner in San
Francisco 10 years ago and I've used it at every 50's diner I have worked
at, and I use it as my pin up handle, and probably half the people know me
as Sugar, and the other half know me as Jessica Kiper. I kind of keep them
separate and sometimes they mix. I think I am the comic relief because it's
gonna be pretty hilarious to see me try and do some stuff. I'm sure I'll be
falling and screaming a lot, maybe crier. I'm sure I'll be crying through a
lot of challenges, and crying through just everything that comes up. I laugh
a lot too. I'm not manic but recently I have been laughing and crying and
sometime both at the same time. I have never been anywhere but Canada, but
its kind of like a clean New York. I am excited to be anywhere and Africa is
pretty awesome, I am kind of fear for the experience. I've gotten good vibe
from people, the older tall gentleman with the bow tie and draws and the
Spanish lady who has kids, I like her a lot. The boys, I like the boys.
Flirting and my personality is probably the best thing I got going for me
because flirting is how I have been surviving for the last couple of years.
I am kind of excited about starving to death because I am hoping my ass gets
eaten up first by my body. I have no will power when it comes to dieting so
I think it will be good to have to starve. I think I will be alright. I am
brutally honest sometimes so I might have to watch my mouth and make sure I
don't upset anybody by saying something I don't really mean too. I'm the
mouth of the south, I have to keep my mouth shut. Everything is going to be
tough for me. I am going to miss sex, drugs, and rock and roll a whole lot."
Jeff Probst: ''She makes every decision from her heart and
not her head. She's very emotional, somewhat na´ve, and I think when you
first look at her, the question is going to be, 'Can she hack it out here?
Does she have what it takes?' It doesn't take much for Sugar to break into
