Born in Panama, Carolina spent the first six years of her life living in poverty until her father, an Army solider, moved the family to the Untied States so he could have the opportunity to provide a better life for them. Despite the adversity that Carolina has faced throughout her life, she has a positive outlook and views those difficulties as learning experiences that have pushed her to become the trash-talking firecracker and SURVIVOR of life that she is today.

Three years ago, with only $250 in her pocket, Carolina made the move from Florida to Los Angeles to accomplish personal goals and to fulfill her desire to help provide for her family. Life has not been easy for this California bartender but rather than succumbing to the negative pressures, she decided to face her inner demons and live life with a positive, compassionate outlook.

Carolina describes the relationship with her mother as an emotional rollercoaster but admires the woman that was able to overcome adversity and become a self-sufficient mother of three. Her mother has shown Carolina what dreams are made of by giving her a life that would have been impossible in Panama.

While her game strategy is still a work-in-progress, Carolina knows that the lessons learned from her life experiences have provided her with tools that may get her far in this game. If she becomes the next sole SURVIVOR, Carolina plans to give back to her mother, help her brothers with school, and donate to various organizations that aid victims of rape and domestic violence.

In her free time she enjoys spending time with friends and participating in outdoor activities such as surfing, snowboarding and hiking with her dogs, Sandy and Zoe.

Carolina currently resides in West Hollywood, Calif. Her birthday is October 27.


Jeff Probst: Carolina. She's small, she's cute...and I think people will think 'aw, pretty little girl in the red dress'. I think she's really tough. It's gona be which alliance she ends up in. If she chooses wisely she could be in deep deep. If not, middle of the pack. Nobody's going to get rid of her early, she's too cute.

I was born in Panama and I was born to a single parent which is my Mom. We had nothing. I lived in a town called Vera Cruz which is outside of Panama City. We had an outhouse...we didn't have indoor plumbing. I still had a house, a place to live. Just we didn't have the perks...electricity...we didn't have the perks that other people have.

Growing up it was just constant change all the time. My Mom was always in school, trying to better herself. And she did everything she could to make sure that I was taken care of. But she never let me forget the struggle of how hard it was for her to get out of the slums of Panama and the poverty. I really realize...I'm so blessed. I have been blessed with such an amazing life. And my Mom, all she has ever done has tried to give to me since the day I was born.

I have been on every side of life. I've been poor. I've been poor, I've had money, I haven't had money. I've watched my Mom go on welfare, I watched her go off of it. I've been through so many walks of life. I've played in so many shoes and to finally am now grounded in my own. And I think that's gonna help me in this game. I think that a lot of people might think I'm one way and I'm completely the opposite. And I think that's gonna benefit me.

The start of Survivor...it's all about unity and being as one and numbers. And creating a strong alliance and a strong tribe. I know I'm gonna have to build my alliances very carefully. This game is a huge challenge for myself. It's to really prove to myself that I can do this...that I won't give up. It's going to try my patience...it's going to try everything that I stress about at home. Things aren't always being perfect. For me to be able to find strength in myself and go and get through that is huge for me.
