Name (Age): Aubry Bracco (29)
Tribe Designation: Brains
Current Residence: Cambridge, Mass.
Occupation: Social Media Marketer
Personal Claim to Fame: My name (it means "leader
of the elves") and the way I pursued my education with my own
style. I convinced my advisors at Brown University to let me write a
childrenís book about a manatee instead of a 50-page thesis and went
on to graduate with honors.
Inspiration in Life: My grandmother, Madeline. She
dealt with a crazy Brooklyn Italian family and was a hard worker. She
was the first Woman of the Year at the New York Daily News and never let
anything get her down (she once went back to work the day after a major
car accident). She also had a wacky personality -- as kids she told us
she didnít eat chicken because ďtheir legs were too close to their
Hobbies: Crayon art, running, meeting locals in new
places and astrology.
Pet Peeves: People who are not self-aware, donít
know how to listen actively or give fake compliments. Close second:
scented things covering bad smells.

If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would
They Be and Why? 1. Crayons Ė (preferably a 64-pack with built-in

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Love child of
Sophie and Cochran. Hair of Shambo.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I love SURVIVOR. Since I
was 15, Iíve watched. As complicated as the game is, thereís
something so simple, authentic and raw. I have deep respect for the
timelessness and evolution of the game.
Why You Think Youíll "Survive" SURVIVOR:
Iím a hard worker who never gives up, and Iíd entertain people by
pulling a Greg Buis and being a weirdo. People would think I was doing
this to be funny and pass time, but Iíd actually be extracting key
details. After living in Salem, MA during several Halloweens, Iíve
learned to embrace my quirkiness and work with outlandish personalities.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Iím an
expert listener and a journalist at heart so Iím inherently observant
and social. I look for the most genuine and self-aware person in the
room so I can connect with them, and I'm on the prowl for the most fake
person in the room so I know what Iím dealing with. I want to prove to
myself that I have what it takes to manage personalities under pressure
with $1,000,000 on the line.
