CBS has announced the upcoming 18 person cast for the popular reality franchise Survivor. This version is called Survivor: One World and one of the contestants is Kat Edorsson, a timeshare representative from Orlando, FL. In her bio information, the 22-year-old senior from The University of Central Florida, states that she, “…talks her way out of tickets and can socialize her way to the top.”
This may be the case most of the time for Kat but back in November of 2010 she was unable to get out of an arrest and being photographed with the above mug shot. The booking info from Orange County indicates that her birth date is 6/22/89. She was arrested on April 11, 2010 for petit theft, translated petty theft.
Here is Kat’s bio info via CBS:
Name (Age): Kat Edorsson (22)
Tribe Designation: Salani
Current Residence: Orlando, Fla.
Occupation: Timeshare Rep
Personal Claim to Fame: I would have to say my accomplishments come from school and work. Although I only work part time, I am a top producer at my company. I’m also working on my BS at University of Central Florida.
Inspiration in Life: I am not the average girl who has a normal hero. Essentially, if I were normal I would either choose Abraham Lincoln or Donald Trump, but my hero is fiction. Her name is Xena. She is the warrior princess, who serves as my alter ego. In her series, she changes from simple farm girl to an Amazon warrior, recognizing and pursing challenges for the greater good. She is my hero and I could only wish I can be half the woman she is.
Hobbies: Riding horses, fishing, all sports.
Pet Peeves: Long lines at the DMV, seat belts on airplanes, girly girls and small children with leashes.
3 Words to Describe You: Competitive, eager and passionate.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Andrea is my favorite. She’s blonde, a farm girl and loves a challenge. She was able to play and get ahead in the game despite her sweet look on the outside, just like me — for example, she wasn’t afraid to throw Matt under the bus to save herself.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to conquer the challenges, proving not only that I can survive the obstacles but that I will be the ultimate survivor.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: My skills to manipulate and socialize will ultimately help me survive Survivor. I have always taken the “leader role” with my friends, family and co-workers. I build relationships, talk my way out of tickets, and socialize my way to the top. My skill set is very strong and it comes to me naturally, like breathing. I definitely think I will be an important member of the group.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: My life has already played this game and I won. I have faced life and death situations at a very young age. I’m a fighter and I’ll never quit. I’m very good at getting my way, talking people into things and ultimately marketing and selling myself. I may be a 22-year-old blonde but I’m much tougher than I look. I want to be the youngest female to ever win the game!
In the above video preview for Kat she reveals that she had open heart surgery at the age of 12. She has no intention of revealing this to the rest of the cast.
Props to Survivor Sucks and their dedicated sleuthing.
