A country girl through and through, Sandy
Burgin grew up and still lives in Kentucky, where she takes
pride in being the state champion of the School Bus Rodeo. A
night owl by occupation, Sandy works the graveyard shift
transporting construction workers to their work sites. As a
professional driver for 30 years, she isn't a stranger to
cat calls, especially since she is the one doing it. On one
occasion she called out to a tall thin man, commenting on
his physique when, to her surprise, he turned around and was
clearly a priest!
She likes to unwind by crocheting or listening to country,
oldies or some good old fashioned rock and roll. Her
penchant for reading "do it yourself" magazines in
addition to her fishing skills just might make her a
valuable member of her tribe.
Sandy describes herself as funny and fearless and canít
stand mean or greedy people. She is looking forward to
interacting with new and interesting people and is thrilled
at the opportunity to win a million dollars. With an
outdoorsy nature (as reflected by her mouse tattoo) and a
kooky personality, in combination with her determination to
win, Sandy feels that she has what it takes to be the next
Sandy currently resides in Louisville, Ky. Her birthday is
Jeff Probst: Sandy will be
unfortunately be off very very early. If her tribe loses the
first Immunity Challenge I imagine she will be gone first.
There's just no way around it. She's country, she can swear
with the best of them, she's very likeable. But she's going
to be angry when it happens, but it's gonna happen.
I'm 53 years old and I'm from
Louisville Kentucky and I drive a school bus. I have two
daughters and two grandsons. I'm married to a wonderful man
that's taking care of my Roxie, Doberman that I refer to as
'The Princess'; Sabrina, the indoor cat which is a Bengal and
the outdoor cat, Tucker. And life couldn't be better.
The way I'm going to play
Survivor or how I'm gonna do in Survivor is....I'm going to
play 'middle of the road'. I believe I need...number one I
need to be on a winning team because they always want to get
rid of the older one first. So I've got to be on a winning
team number one, so that I can get through...maybe 3 or 4
Tribal Councils. Then I can be in the top 2 or 3 I believe.
So plan is to form a winning
team. I'm make them wanna keep 'Mamma K' around but not enough
as the 'old lady' just that I'm gonna be their security. It's
like 'I need her because she can comfort me and she can give
me what I need'. And nighttime like 'Oh my gawd I miss my
momma' or whatever the case might be. So I'm gonna be the
sister or the mom or whatever it is I need for them to be.
Without being the 'old lady' or the 'motherly instinct' type
person. But hey don't put it past me to caress them in my
breast and say 'It's OK sweetheart'. But all the while smiling
'cause I want them to need me.
I would describe myself this
way...I am a fearless woman. My personality is pretty
crazy....spontaneous, there isn't anything I wouldn't do at
any time. In all honesty I don't have a fear of anything. I'm
the Ultimate Survivor because like I said if you believe you
could achieve...and I believe so...I believe so deep in my
heart...I believe I'll achieve it...with all my heart I
believe I'll go home the million dollar winner.
