Kara Kay is set to appear on the upcoming season of the CBS hit reality series “Survivor: David vs. Goliath.” The 30-year-old is a member of the Goliath tribe on the season which is the 37th season of the long-running show. Kay, a realtor and former NFL cheerleader from San Diego, Calif., is one of 20 castaways who will appear on the show.
Prior to the airing of the show, Kay found herself in some trouble because she broke her NDA by allowing herself to be featured in photos and videos of fellow contestant Alec Merlino on social media.
The trouble led to Alec having his $10,000 appearance fee withheld by producers of the show while also being uninvited from the taping of the season finale. However, Kara was not immediately punished for her appearance in the social media posts.
Despite the drama, Kara is hoping to emulate the game played by former Survivor winner Parvati Shallow.
From her official CBS bio:
What’s your reason for being on Survivor?
To win one million dollars! It would be nice to help my dad get back on his feet for good; he ran a successful business until he lost it all in the recession. I helped support, but I could only do so much. I also want to step outside my comfort zone to prove I can do anything with the right mindset. This would really help carry out my mom’s legacy and make her really proud. I would also love to have a down payment for a house. I live in San Diego, one of the hottest real estate markets… and it’s expensive!
Why do you think you’ll “survive” Survivor?
I am relentless. I don’t give up. I know how to get along and even make friends with all walks of life. I’m kind of a chameleon. I guess I’d consider myself pretty savvy and adept. I observe everything, yet have the ability to keep to myself if need be. I’m strong and focused, therefore could be a threat in challenges. Plus, I am not afraid to be cutthroat if I have to. In today’s world, I think you’d call that savage. My social game would be impressive, plus I could win over the jury with game tactics and strategy.
