Sierra a last minute replacement for Natalie

She wasn’t supposed to be there. Sierra Dawn Thomas made it all the way to the casting finals of Survivor: Game Changers, only to be told “Thanks, but no thanks.” But then fate intervened. After San Juan del Sur champ Natalie Anderson backed out at the last minute, Sierra was tracked down at a rodeo to rush out to Fiji and fill the 20th and final spot.

Can I say this?

A week before the game, I looked on Natalia A's instagram and she posted how she was studying for a bio final (if I remember correctly). I don't know if the post was deleted but it could be a reason why she declined.

I don't think so.

Seems to be related to her post-concussion syndrome (PCS). She is also taking a break from school.

Wise decisions, but bound to be so so disappointing for her.

This was all over twitter when the cast was spoilt, hence why Sierra's inclusion in this cast has become an ongoing joke. :lol:

Natalie did make it, she sadly couldn't compete due to personal reasons.

Nah, Natalie wouldn't have done nearly as well had Nadiya still been in the game. Having her gone relieved a huge target off of Nat's back and allowed her to gain loyal allies and play more fearlessly.

Plus the casuals hated both of them heavily since the cast reveal, and once Nadiya was voted out, they slowly grew to like Natalie and in the end were really happy for her win. :)

Why they hate twinnie?  :didimiss:
Nat got lucky after her core alliance jeremy vote out & keith "stick to the plan"  :funny:
if keith didn't blow the plan, Jon would be voted out & second Nat alliance will be decimated, reed, wes, alec & keith will be F4
If Nad survive to the merge & combine their power to super twinnie ranger, as power couple they will be wreak havoc to FTC
and there will be bollywood dance at F3 morning breakfast
