May 31, 2000 the very first episode of Survivor aired. I was hooked. I loved the show. I have not missed an episode since.
I have always dreamed of being on the show but as you may or may not know my journey through infertility started in 2001. There were other dreams I wanted to pursue more.
I have pondered applying for a year or so now and finally bit the bullet. Bill was my biggest proponent reminding me that they could cancel the show at any time and I was on the threshold of becoming the old lady on the show. (45-50 year olds rarely last long on Survivor.)
I decided to apply and am elated that I finally did it. I can’t imagine them picking me but I am excited at the thought that they might. As I told them, I may not be strong or athletic but I am tenacious and have a fighting spirit. I never give up — just take one look at how I built my family and you know that when I put my mind to something I don’t let anything stop me.
