    Nina - One World



    Name (Age): Nina Acosta (51)

    Tribe Designation: Salani

    Current Residence: Clovis, Calif.

    Occupation: Retired LAPD Officer

    Personal Claim to Fame: Receiving a full ride basketball scholarship to Santa Clara University, finding the perfect husband and, of course, my kids.

    Inspiration in Life: My mom – she was a feminist before it was acceptable. She taught me to be confident and encouraged me to pick sports over cheerleading.

    Hobbies: Working out, cooking, gardening and target shooting.

    Pet Peeves: I hate whining, being called a “girl” and rude drivers.

    3 Words to Describe You: Tenacious, competitive and confident.

    SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Stephenie LaGrossa, because she was tough and stood up for herself, and Sue Hawk, because she spoke her mind.

    Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to prove that a 50+ year-old woman can compete. I love challenges, both physical and mental. The money would also be a great help to my kids with college.

    Why You Think You'll "Survive" SURVIVOR: I thrive on being a team player; I have a never-quit attitude and I can deal with pain and discomfort.

    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: In 1991 and 1993 I competed for the S.W.A.T. Team. Both times the two week tryouts took place in Camp Pendleton and I was the only woman competing against 19 men. There were 40 S.W.A.T. officers judging the process. Neither the competitors nor the S.W.A.T. members wanted me there. I had to mentally, emotionally and physically challenge myself everyday.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I like her, a LOT. She's tough. Hopefully, she doesn't rub people the wrong way and get booted early.

    Nasty face plant and fat lip. However, she doesn't seem to be letting it slow her down.

    Poor face plant lady. That looked painful. Why didn't anybody take Jeff's recommendations on how to take that fall?

    Although Kourtney was the first to leave the island, Nina was the first voted off. Prediction fulfilled!

    Sorry you got voted out, Nina - a victim of the Stupid Girl Alliance

    I'd have voted to keep you
