Sandra Diaz-Twine is hoping to extend her incredible winning streak on Survivor: Game Changers.
Many Survivor fans believe Sandra is the best player of all time. Others thinks she is overrated, and lucked into her victories. Regardless of what you may think of her, Sandra is Survivor's only two-time winner, so she must be doing something right.
Sandra perfected the "as long as it ain't me" strategy in both Survivor: Pearl Islands and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. In Pearl Islands, she was in a majority alliance until the merge at which point things fell apart, but she was able to straddle the line between multiple alliances and make it all the way to the end. Sandra helped convince final Immunity winner Lillian Morris to take her to the end instead of the more beatable Jonny Fairplay, and won 6-1 in the end.
She returned in Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains as one of four winners but managed to ingratiate herself with her fellow Villains and slip under the radar. She had a season-long feud with Russell Hantz and despite constantly trying to get the numbers to take him out, she was not able to. Even still, her feud with Russell made her the most palatable person in the Final 3 to the mostly-Heroes jury and they helped give her another $1 million.
If Sandra was unassuming even as a winner heading into Heroes vs. Villains, the opposite is true now. As the only castaway to win Survivor twice, Sandra will inevitably be on a few radars as a possible easy early vote in Game Changers. However, she didn't change her strategy much in Heroes vs. Villains and still won again, so she doesn't intend on doing anything different this time around.
"I have no choice but to be a more aggressive-sneaky-mean-lying-and-cheating Sandra," she says in her new CBS bio.
So has anything changed for Sandra in the 14 seasons since she played the game? Simply put, Sandra says, "I've gotten older and fatter."
Survivor: Game Changers premieres Wednesday, March 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
