“Eighteen new castaways build their own civilization and go on their expedition for $1 million.”
Elisabeth “Elie” Scott, a clinical psychologist from Salt Lake City, Utah, will compete in the 43rd season of Survivor. She is 31 years old and feels that her professional expertise with PTSD patients will give her an edge in the game, allowing her to win. Since CBS announced the full cast roster for Survivor season 43, fans have been anxious to discover more about Elisabeth “Elie” Scott. So, without further ado, let’s get to know participant Elisabeth “Elie” Scott ahead of the premiere of Survivor season 43.
When she was younger, Elisabeth “Elie” Scott struggled with self-doubt.
Elisabeth “Elie” Scott, a 31-year-old competitor from Salt Lake City, Utah, reportedly longed to be a part of the highly-acclaimed reality series Survivor since her graduating days. She was absolutely captivated by the reality series at the time, as one of her close friends drew a connection between her and Michele Fitzgerald. Survivor season 43 will begin with three tribes: Baka (represented by the color yellow), Vesi (represented by the color red), and Coco (represented by the color blue). Elisabeth “Elie” Scott, a contestant, will be a member of the Baka tribe.
In a recent interview with Parade, Scott explained why she joined the CBS reality competition series:
“I began my application to Survivor with the intention of just appearing on the program since I am enamored with it. I’m a big fan. But, throughout the audition process, I’ve done a lot of self-reflection and recognized that I had a lot to prove to myself. I’ve had a lot of self-doubt about my ability since I was a kid.”
She continued, saying:
“And I guess I wanted to show myself that I could go outside of my comfort zone and try something new. Because of my career and familial structure, I’ve always been in a position to serve others. So this is an opportunity for me to concentrate on myself and put myself first for the first time in my life.”
When asked about her favorite moments from prior seasons of the show, she stated:
“I have so many great moments from Survivor’s history. I believe the one I just stated, in which Erik handed up his idol and the brilliant Black Widow Brigade orchestrated it. Everybody did an outstanding job. It was a genuine team effort, with everyone working together to pull off this incredible surprise. But I also like odd and amusing events.”
She continued, saying:
“I was reminded of one today in which Billy confessed his love for Candice [in the Cook Islands]. And it felt quite unpleasant simply thinking about how we’re sitting here now, staring at each other. We are not permitted to talk to each other before the game. I imagine how embarrassing it must have been. (Laughs.) But it was also a very humorous and sweet moment. That one came to mind today.”
While discussing how her effort would provide her a significant edge in the game, the participant stated:
“My profession, I believe, has really prepared me well for this game. My work is quite difficult. I deal with veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. In any session, you never know what to expect. They may all have PTSD, but each person’s experience with it is unique. As a result, I must think rapidly on my feet. I must be able to form strong ties with individuals in the first session you meet them.”
In addition to Elisabeth “Elie” Scott, the cast of Survivor season 43 includes Cody Assenmacher, Geo Bustamante, Mike Gabler, Owen Knight, Jesse Lopez, Dwight Moore, Morriah Young, James Jones, Jeanie Zheng, and others. Remember to tune in to Survivor season 43 episode 1 on CBS on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
