Carolina Eastwood
« on: January 13, 2009, 12:18:45 PM »
Age: 26
Bartender
Los Angeles, CA
Tribe: Jalapao
Born in Panama, Carolina spent the first six years of her life living in poverty until her father, an Army solider, moved the family to the Untied States so he could have the opportunity to provide a better life for them. Despite the adversity that Carolina has faced throughout her life, she has a positive outlook and views those difficulties as learning experiences that have pushed her to become the trash-talking firecracker and SURVIVOR of life that she is today.

Three years ago, with only $250 in her pocket, Carolina made the move from Florida to Los Angeles to accomplish personal goals and to fulfill her desire to help provide for her family. Life has not been easy for this California bartender but rather than succumbing to the negative pressures, she decided to face her inner demons and live life with a positive, compassionate outlook.

Carolina describes the relationship with her mother as an emotional rollercoaster but admires the woman that was able to overcome adversity and become a self-sufficient mother of three. Her mother has shown Carolina what dreams are made of by giving her a life that would have been impossible in Panama.

While her game strategy is still a work-in-progress, Carolina knows that the lessons learned from her life experiences have provided her with tools that may get her far in this game. If she becomes the next sole SURVIVOR, Carolina plans to give back to her mother, help her brothers with school, and donate to various organizations that aid victims of rape and domestic violence.

In her free time she enjoys spending time with friends and participating in outdoor activities such as surfing, snowboarding and hiking with her dogs, Sandy and Zoe.

Carolina currently resides in West Hollywood, Calif. Her birthday is October 27.

An interview with Carolina:

"I knew there was a chance I was going home. But I didn't think it was going to happen that night"

What was your first impression of Brazil?
Carolina: Yummy. I loved it. It was beautiful.

How hard was that four-hour hike to camp?
Carolina: It was not okay. That was really hard. The landscape changes so suddenly - one minute you're on sand and the next you're in a swamp. It was the worst.

That's insane! What a way to start the game.
Carolina: Yeah, it was not cute,. It was not cute.

Did you like your Jalapao tribe?
Carolina: I loved my tribe. I'm very blunt and straightforward and I like to joke around a lot. I feel like maybe I was too eccentric for them. They didn't know what to think of me. But Jalapao's an awesome tribe.

Were you totally blindsided by what happened at Tribal Council?
Carolina: I was blindsided, but I wasn't. I just didn't get a good feeling. And you should never be cocky going into Tribal Council. You should never go in there thinking that you're not going home. You should always go in there very humble and pray that you're not the one going home. So, when I went in, I knew there could be a slight chance I was going home, but I didn't think it was going to happen that night! So yeah, I was blindsided but at the same time, I told myself to stay guarded and know that there was a possibility.

What was the hardest part about your three days in Brazil?
Carolina: Being voted out! That was very humbling and hard. I gained almost 20 pounds to do Survivor and put my body through so much. Then it got taken away from me right away. The hardest part about Brazil was definitely getting snuffed.

Would you do it all over again?
Carolina: In a heartbeat!

What's next for you?
Carolina: I came out to LA three years ago to be an actor or a host. Right now I'm focusing on my career and doing some work with some charities. So if anyone needs an actor, I'm here.

Great. Well good luck with everything and hopefully we'll be writing about you again in In Touch sometime in the future. Carolina: I know! I love your magazine. I read it all the time. I literally get mad if I go to the store and they don't have the new one.

An interview with Carolina:

Survivor: Tocantins Exit Interview: Carolina Eastwood - A True Survivor

On the premiere of Survivor: Tocantins clever new twists made the game exciting from the very first moment. The castaways had to vote out 2 players before theyíd even had a chance to introduce themselves. Or so they were lead to believe. The vote itself had a twist when the ďunluckyĒ Sandy (too old) and Sierra (too weak) earned a helicopter ride to camp instead of slogging through a 4 hour trek.

One of the ďluckyĒ players, Carolina Eastwood shouldered her burden on the walk, but couldnít help showing the fiery side of her personality. At that time, Sandy was definitely a goner, so a little grumpy whining wasnít too far out of line. But later, when Sandy showed her strength and smarts at the Immunity challenge, while Carolina hobbled along in a pair of cowboy boots, suddenly her grousing turned the tide against her.

After Tribal Council, Carolina smiled for the camera and congratulated her teammates for the blindside move they pulled, saying ďYou guys are good!Ē Even at her lowest moment, Carolina was pulling for her tribe

I spoke with her the day after and she continued to cheer for her teammmates, and for the life sheís carving out for herself since leaving the show. Carolina is the first to say that, although she spent only three days in Brazil, the lessons she learned will last a lifetime.

Hi Carolina. Thanks for talking with us today.

Itís my pleasure. Thank you.

SoÖ whatís with the boots?

Those were JTís cowboy boots. Those werenít mine. My tennis shoes were soaking wet, and I didnít have any other shoes to walk around in. There were really huge ants there, and none of us could walk around barefooted. JT had his boots and his sneakers, and I asked him if I could wear his cowboy boots. So I was walking around with my boots and tube socks. I thought I was cute.

Thatís a good story. Now we know.

Iím definitely not a cowgirl, though. Iím more of a flip-flop girl.

So how are you doing now that the whole world knows who you are?

Iím good! I am SO blessed. I have an amazing group of friends around me, an amazing family and I am blessed. I donít know if the whole world knows who I am. I was the first one booted out, but Iím being very honest and genuine by saying Iím doing really good.

Well, it is an achievement to make it to Survivor. Itís a hard thing to do and thereís not that many of you.

Yeah, itís a journey of a lifetime. Survivor is a gift. Itís the best gift that anyone has ever given me. CBS, Mark Burnett and Jeff Probst, everyone that goes along with the show is everything you could ever imagine. It makes you think about things that are real and important. Everything that we forget in todayís society, and I am so blessed to be a part of something thatís so incredible.

Yeah, part of what makes Survivor so watchable is the transformation factor. Even though you were on so briefly, you had a nice moment with Sandy when you told her you felt bad about the words you used when you voted her off.

Thatís just who I am. Yeah, I will speak my mind and tell you how I feel. But telling Sandy I was sorry for the words I used was just me. We all basically felt the same way when we voted her off. That was just for the tribe.

Well it was still anice moment.

Thanks.

After you got to camp, was there even an inkling that Sandy may have been spending her time looking for a rogue Idol, rather than getting things ready for you?

Honestly, no. And if any of the other castaways tell you different, theyíre B.S.-ing you. Because we all sat and around and talked about her, everytime she would disappear, and only Sydney once said, ďmaybe thereís an Idol we donít know aboutĒ and someone dismissed her. But none of us knew. We were obviously riding the wrong bus that day, because none of us even thought about it.

Well, itís a brand new twist in the game.

Yeah, a very new twist. You think you know Survivor, man, and you donít. And thereís so many creative minds behind that show. I have so much respect for that crew. Just the hardest working people Iíve ever seen in my life. And their imaginations are insane. Thatís why Survivor is as good as it is.

Thatís true. Itís still fresh.

Oh yeah. I have nothing but respect for them.

Being the first player knocked out of the game gets you noticed a little more than the others, at least until the final few.

Really? I feel like everyoneís going to forget about me. I trained really hard, but it wasnít my time. I feel like God gave something to me, but whether youíre first, second or third, you really learn from it. You grow because of it, and I have nothing but respect for my castmates. I feel like we all went through something, and I made friends I will always have. And Iím grateful to Mark Burnett and CBS, but especially the fans. They are the ones who watch every week. Thatís why Survivor is going on its 19th season now, and Iím so blessed to be a part of this.

What was your family and friendís reaction. Were you watching at home?

No. I only told a few people, we have to sign confidentiality agreements. But I told my brother, heís amazing, and my boyfriend. I didnít go home for the premiere, I stayed here in L.A. but my friends found out and said ďwe have to throw you a party.Ē

So they threw me two huge partys, one at Happy Endings and the other at Green Door, a huge club in L.A. and when the show was airing, like 50 of my friends came. They watched it with me, and when I got voted out, I did like Rocky, with a punch in the air, showing everyone that I was okay, and I took a bow. I was like, ďthat was meĒ and everybody in the room was completely shocked. Everyoneís jaw hit the floor and I started laughing.

You have to understand, I got voted out, like a month or two ago. But I wasnít going to allow myself to relive that pain. I was allowing myself to enjoy the moment. Because so much more came out of that pain than winning Survivor. So looking back on it, with my friends, laughing, I will never forget that moment for the rest of my life.

Because it was the moment I realized, that my dreams, my goals, my life, was just as important as anybody elseís. And if I live the next 5 years of my life like most people wonít, then Iíll live the next 30 years of my life like most people canít. And that was the moment I realized it.

My parents, I havenít even spoken with them yet, but because of the three hour time difference, my father, he kept calling me with a countdown, and I was like, ďOK I gotta get off the phone now, and if I donít pick up when you call me at the end of the show, Iím sorry.Ē But my dad, he left me messages saying ďIím so proud of youĒ and even though I havenít spoken with him yet, I know what heís thinking.

Thatís great.

My dad, he doesnít get mentioned much in any of my publicity, but my dad is my hero. I feel like in a way I kind of let him down and talking to him is going to be really emotional.

So we get you first. Earlier today, you did a live chat with Fancast. I want to thank you for that. On there you mention acting. Are you an actor?

Yes, I am. Thatís why I moved out to L.A. Iíve been working my butt off. Everything I have, I got on my own. Nothing was ever handed to me. But now Iím pursuing acting 150 per cent because itís been my dream, my passion since I was a little girl. My mom says I was always performing. So yeah, Iím an actor and Iím looking for work and Iím available. Thatís why I moved to L.A. and I will make it happen.

So whatís the plan between now and the finale?

Just working and focusing on my career. Trying to stay positive and working out with my trainer. Just trying to make my dreams come true, and that will happen. Mostly, working on my acting career.

Well, having Survivor on your resume canít hurt. Maybe itíll open some doors, I hope.

I hope so too. And Iíll be looking forward to seeing how my tribemates do. I have nothing but respect for each and every one of them. Iíll be watching to see how it turns out. You know, gotta support Survivor!

Who do you hope will win?

I want to see either Taj or Stephan. I hope to God that Taj or Stephan go far. Those two people, theyír both really involved in charities, they will really give back. And if youíre not giving back, youíre not living.

So true. Thank you Carolina. Good luck! Weíll see you at the finale.

Thanks! I look forward to it!
