(Age): Debbie Wanner (49)
Tribe Designation: Brains
Current Residence: Reading, Penn.
Personal Claim to Fame: Being the first in my family
to graduate college, learning was always valued, but not formal
education. My family was/is dysfunctional, to put it mildly. Inspiration
in Life: I just adore Tia Torres of Pit Bulls and Parolees - talk about
Hobbies: Working out (hiking and running), flying,
snowmobiles, horses, boating, playing piano, rescuing Boston terriers
and tortoises, juggling and reading, especially American and Roman
Pet Peeves: The idolization of garish, repugnant and
supercilious people-like the Kardashians; pets as fashion accessories;
apathy-donít just talk about doing it, do it and help make the world a
3 Words to Describe You: Relentless, erudite and
If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would
They Be and Why? Chanel No. 5 as I know how bad we will all smell,
dental floss because I love clean teeth and it has multiple uses and a
big stuffed Boston terrier.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Coach. Period.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: Money, because poverty
sucks and money equals power to a point. Also, I relish an adventure.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" SURVIVOR: I
have military training in summer and winter survival, shelter building,
fire making, food procurement, torture training and a superior will to
survive. Plus, Iím fun too! Iím a card carrying member of the
Reading Jugglerís club, so Iíll teach them how to juggle.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Like
Hannibal Lecter, I have good manners and am pleasant company. However,
that doesnít mean I wonít scramble your brains. One million dollars
means freedom, which is priceless to me. Iíll give up, let go,
surrender- when Iím dead!
