Chrissy, a 46-year-old actuary from Bernardsville, NJ who currently resides in Lebanon Township, NJ, will be competing in the Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers finale on Wednesday, December 20 at 8PM ET/PT on CBS, which will be followed by a one-hour live reunion special.
She began the game as a member of the Heroes tribe. While Ben Driebergen was her closest ally at the time, the pair are now enemies and want nothing to do with each other.
Chrissy, who is excellent at solving puzzles and very capable of winning Individual Immunity, is gliding her way to the Final 3. As of right now, she's in an alliance with Devon Pinto and Ryan Ulrich, but Mike Zahalsky is a wild card and Ben is still thrown into the mix.
