Sandra, a 41-year-old from Fayetteville, NC, will be competing onSurvivor for the third time.
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.
- Sandra was born in Stamford, CT and currently lives in Fayetteville, NC with her husband and two children while working as a secretary for a law firm.
- Sandra wonSurvivor's Season 7, Survivor: Pearl Islands, in 2003 with a 6-1 jury vote when she was a 29-year-old former U.S. Army specialist.
The Washington native became the first Hispanic winner of the $1 million grand prize even though she didn't win a challenge during the entire show. The finale of Pearl Islands also happened to feature all females.
- Sandra later competed on Season 20, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, in 2010 on the Villains' tribe.
- Following her Heroes vs. Villains victory, Sandra called herself the "queen of Survivor" and told Reality TV World that although Russell thought he was an expert player, he could "play [the game] a thousand times and never win."
- Both times Sandra played Survivor, she received six jury votes to win.
