After years of auditioning for the Survivor, Chanelle Howell finally made it into the CBS series for its 42nd installment. She remembers it clear as a day when her “colleagues” laughed at her for “watching and studying old re-runs of Survivor.” Guess, who’s one laughing now.
Keep reading this Chanelle Howell Bio to learn more about her.
Chanelle Howell On Survivor 42
CBS series, Survivor 42 premiered on March 9, 2022, and as always, it saw 18 competitors including Chanelle Howell, traveling to the islands from different walks of life.
The co-contestants joining Chanelle this season were — Marya Sherron, Daniel Strunk, Drea Wheeler, Hai Giang, Jackson Fox, Jenny Kim, Jonathan Young, Lindsay Dolashewich, Lydia Meredith, Maryanne Oketch, Mike Turner, Omar Zaheer, Rocksroy Bailey, Romeo Escobar, Swati Goel, Tori Meehan, and Zach Wurtenberger.
Unfortunately, Jackson Fox has already left the show (unwillingly) because he hid his necessary medication from production until the day before filming. At the time, he was taking lithium to manage sleep problems.
Also, Zach Wurtenberger was the first player to be voted off of Survivor 42. The vote against Zach marked Survivor history as the first unanimous vote in 42 seasons.
As for Chanelle, she was going strong. And this might have a lot to do with the fact that she studied the show thoroughly. Chanelle has been watching Survivor ever since she was 10. Fascinated by the fact that “the people that you vote out have to vote for you to win,” Chanelle always wondered what it’s like to participate in the game.
Also, another fact that makes her so strong is, she’s been practicing to be a “Survivor” for years. She hired a trainer, practiced mantras and meditation, did balancing exercises, and went on runs in the cold. “I wanted to be prepared physically, mentally, and emotionally. The process was so long but well worth it,” she explained.
Besides that stunning $1 million cash prize, Chanelle’s biggest motivation for coming to show was to “show women of color that the Survivor was made for (them) too.”
As for her alliance partner, she wants someone loyal, and someone she can “bounce ideas off of.”
