    Elyse - South Pacific



    Name (Age): Elyse Umemoto (27)
    Tribe Designation: Savaii
    Current Residence: Las Vegas
    Occupation: Dance Team Manager

    Personal claim to fame: I was the second runner-up to Miss America and I raised my three younger sisters.

    Inspiration in life: My Grandma, Viola. God rest her beautiful soul. She taught me three of the most important things I’ll ever learn: how to read, how to pray and how to appreciate music.

    Hobbies: Baking cupcakes, amassing useless trivia and quotes and reading memoirs.

    Pet peeves: Professional athletes with bad attitudes, wet laundry that doesn’t get moved to the dryer immediately, pretty girls wearing ugly shoes and people who drink decaf.

    3 words to describe you: Enchanting, indomitable and spunky!

    SURVIVOR contestant you are most like: Brenda from Nicaragua and Parvati. They know what they want and how to get it. They truly understand the social game.

    Reason for being on SURVIVOR: I thrive on challenge and the rush of competition. I always push the envelope and my limits. There’s no better avenue to do this than “Survivor.”

    Why you think you’ll “survive” SURVIVOR: I’m engaging, personable and a master at reading people. I’m controversial in many ways and I embrace that I’m a “character.” I’m naturally athletic and can seamlessly blend into a group. I radiate confidence and always compete to win.

    Why you think you will be the sole SURVIVOR: It’s not just my character traits that make me a winner. It’s literally in my blood to survive. My Japanese grandfather spent his childhood in an internment camp. My German grandmother’s family has strong, long-standing ties with the government and fled immediately before the war. My Native American grandfather was the son of a deaf mute who learned English as a second language on the reservation by age 9. I have a passion for competition and I am the product of generations of TRUE survivors- their strength and resilience are a natural part of who I am.

    If I ever describe myself as "enchanting," I hope someone kicks me.

    Though her pet peeves gave me a laugh.

    I like her - sounds like she's got guts. And I mean REAL guts, not Naonka's version of guts.

    I like her too. She raised her younger sisters, but more importantly, she shares my addiction of shoes.

    I know she sounds all nice now but you can bet she will be one of the tanning ladies that does no work around camp.

    Well, if there's anything to "blood" she's got a good background. And if she really raised her sisters she knows how to work. And if there are any guys out there dumb enough to worked the way Parvati worked them she might have a chance. Overall not liking her too much though...enchanting,etc.
    A dance team manager should be in good physical shape.

    Many people say they raised their siblings and I wonder what mom and dad would have to say about that. Perhaps she had babysitting duty more than she should. I know it happens in some families, especially with addictions, but I always wonder just how much.

    So far, I like her. She's shown competence in the competitions, and a good nature and willingness to work around camp. Not that the show has dwelled on those things, so she might be under radar right now. But I noticed her.
