Yep, we got your number S101!
You know how Chelsea said in her CBS 'Get to Know Me' video that she's been in three fistfights in her life? She was asked if we'll see a fistfight this season - see her answer at end of this interview:2 (young, beautiful) Carolinians share secrets of 'Survivor'By Théoden Janes
The odds of being chosen to compete on "Survivor" are awfully slim, but there are a couple of things that can improve your chances, however slightly.
One, you can be young and beautiful. That helps a lot. Two, you can be from the Carolinas.
Over 23 seasons, the reality series has featured 23 contestants who have claimed cities in North or South Carolina as their hometowns. When the 24th season premieres on CBS tonight at 8, two more South Carolinians will be added to the list.
We talked recently with Jay Byars of Greenville and Chelsea Meissner of Charleston, who will be vying for the title of Sole Survivor and the $1 million prize. (And yes, they both also fall into the "young and beautiful" category.)CHELSEA MEISSNERAge:
Charleston. (Grew up in Hilton Head and Florence, S.C.)Occupation:
Medical sales.Q. Do you think being young and good-looking is more of an advantage or more of a disadvantage on "Survivor"?
I think being young helps just because people kind of look at you as being helpful in the challenges, to help win for your tribe. As far as looks, I really think it depends more on your personality because I think if you're good-looking but you don't carry yourself well, or you have an attitude, it doesn't really matter how good you look in a bikini.Q. Not that this is a necessary skill to navigate the game, but would you say you are a good liar when you have to be?
In everyday life, I suck at lying. I mean, I just will laugh and my face turns red and everyone knows that I'm scheming or I'm lying about something. I'm awful at it. But in the game, you kind of learn ways to get good at it if you need to be. You kind of turn into an actress in a sense.Q. What was the toughest thing about being out there?
Living with women. (The two tribes will be divided into men and women.) I have two roommates at home, and they're enough to keep up with. Even with jobs I've had, I make sure that I'm not gonna be in an office with all women because it would drive me up the wall.Q. You have referred to yourself as feisty and someone who's not afraid to mix it up. Do you have a temper?
No, I wouldn't say a temper. I'm pretty low-key, down to earth. ... It takes a lot to set me off, but then when you've reached that point, I'll let you know, "OK, you've pissed me off."Q. So are we going to see a fistfight this season? (Meissner says she's been in three in her life.)
I can't comment on that. You're gonna have to watch. We had a diverse cast, a lot of different personalities. So you're just gonna have to watch.
