Sarah Lacina is hoping things go a little better on her upcoming second season of Survivor.
Sarah is competing in the new season of Survivor, titled Survivor: Game Changers. The 32-year-old cop from Iowa is looking to be more strategically minded than her first season, Survivor: Cagayan, where she was voted out in 11th place and became the first member of the jury.
Starting off in Survivor: Cagayan, Sarah appeared to be a strong, valued member of the Brawn tribe, and quickly recognized that one of her fellow tribemates, Tony Vlachos, was also a cop. While Tony denied this, Sarah was perceived to be a smart player who had great potential to excel in the game. After the tribe swap, she ingratiated herself with both Brains and Beauty players and became an ally to Spencer Bledsoe, Tasha Fox, Kass McQuillen, Jeremiah Wood and Morgan McLeod.
The tribes merged at 11 and it was clear that the battle lines had been drawn. However, Tony and his fellow alliance mates tried to convince Sarah to come back to their side, and Sarah let it be known that she was the swing vote. Kass felt uncomfortable with Sarah and decided it was best to flip on her alliance, blindsiding Sarah and the rest of her alliance and sending her to the jury.
Now, Sarah is back with a vengeance, ready to play harder than ever.
"I'm more cut-throat now. I'm not out there to make friends and I'm willing to go against my word," Sarah says in her CBS bio.
As the old adage goes, Sarah has no interest in making friends this time around. She's in it for the money.
"I will do whatever it takes to win. The only purpose for me going back out there is to win a million dollars. I don't care about making friends or what anyone thinks of me. They'll get over it."
Survivor: Game Changers premieres Wednesday, March 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
