By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/08/2017
Sarah Lacina is one of the returning castaways to get another chance at winning $1 million on Survivor: Game Changers this spring.
Sarah, a 32-year-old from Marion, IA, is coming back to Survivor three years after her first appearance on the show when she worked as a police officer.
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 marksSurvivor'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.
Below is a list of five facts Reality TV World has compiled about Sarah Lacina:
- Sarah previously played on Season 28, Survivor: Cagayan -- Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty, and finished in eleventh place. She became the season's first jury member.
The Brawn tribe member was voted out of the game during the season's seventh Tribal Council session after Kass McQuillen flipped on her alliance of six to ultimately give the opposing alliance the numbers. Kass jumped ship because of tension brewing between the two women over who had control of the game post-merge.
- Sarah developed the reputation of being a flipper on Cagayan and told Reality TV World after her elimination that trying to be a double agent was a very dangerous position to put herself in, however, she enjoyed feeling like the "queen" or the "president" of Survivor.
- Sarah said fans didn't get to see a lot of her gameplay the first time around and so she had a lot of unfinished business on Game Changers and wants to prove to everyone why producers brought her back.
- She argues castaways like Malcolm Freberg and Oscar "Ozzy" Lusth are fan favorites, but aren't necessarily great players or threats. Ozzy, for example, has played the game three times before but never won. "If you've been married four times, would you be good at marriage?" she quipped.
- Sarah has said she's most proud of herself for graduating college in four years, and her mother is her inspiration in life because she works hard and is so supportive.
