By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/06/2017
Aubry Bracco is one of the returning castaways to get another chance at winning $1 million on Survivor: Game Changers this spring.
Aubry, a 30-year-old from Cambridge, MA, worked as a social media marketer when she first appeared on Survivor.
This all-stars season, the franchise's 34th edition, will premiere with a special two-hour episode on Wednesday, March 8 at 8PM ET/PT on CBS. The show's debut marks Survivor's milestone 500th episode.
Survivor: Game Changers, filmed in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji in June and July 2016, will feature 20 castaways who are being billed as having made some of the biggest moves in the history of the game divided into two tribes, Mana and Nuku, that are each comprised of 10 veteran players.
- Aubry told Reality TV World after the Kaoh Rong season that she felt her fellow castaways had trouble seeing her game because it was so personal and emotional for everyone.
She therefore felt a tad undervalued or underestimated.
- She is best remembered for her strategic gameplay -- but not so much her social game -- and ability to rally after two of her closest allies were suddenly and unexpectedly medically evacuated from the game.
- Aubry said she convinced her advisors at Brown University to let her write a children's book about a manatee instead of a 50-page thesis, and she went on to graduate with honors.
- The castaway has called herself "the love child" of Sophie Clarke and John Cochran when it comes to past Survivor contestants she is most like.
