S24: Nina Acosta
« on: January 18, 2012, 10:05:52 AM »

 
 
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.

Initial reaction: Dawn, part two? However I predict she will make it further than Dawn.

Edit after watching video & press interview: My initial assessment stands. She's the Dawn of this season, even has 4 kids, but I think she will do a little better in challenges and make it to about final 8. She could come off as a little bossy. I think the younger cast will not let her last to the end.

She reminds me of Caryn/Kathy VB :lol: I want her to go far, but I think she might be on the outs doing a Kathy "I WANT THE SHELTER! I WANT FIREE!!" but she could fit in with the guys I think. She can go to merge I think.
