Emily Flippen On Survivor 45
Emily Flippen is one of the two contestants on Survivor 45 with Maryland ties. “In the game of Survivor, you watch people give into their emotions. My experience as an investment analyst has really enabled me to separate my short-term emotions from my long-term goals,” Emily told CBS.
Emily has almost figured out everything in life from career to love and Survivor is a way for her to do something very interesting from everyday humdrum. She says that she is not the most skilled and equipped with the attributes to overcome the challenges. But, these are the things that make her push herself to be creative and competitive, and of course excitement.
In her own words, “All of these things are just like, “Wow, this is so suburban,” not what I expected for my life. And so I had, I guess, a crisis one day and was like, “You know what I should do? I should apply for Survivor.” And literally that same day or the next day after I applied, I got an email back that was like, “Hey, so we kind of liked your video.” And that’s when I was like, “Oh, shit. [Laughs.] What did I just get myself into?”
But she has prepared ahead of the show in her own way. But instead of hitting the gym, her life experience prepared her. According to Emily, she spent four years in China where she met people from diverse backgrounds which helped her experience “diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, life experiences, cultures, and getting along and finding common ground with people who are different than myself. It’s one of those soft skills that it’s really easy to say, but it’s different to actually experience it. And I think I have experienced it.”
Talking about winners and non-winners she identifies most with, Emily named Sandra, and Chaos Kass.
Sharing how people will perceive her, Emily explained that they might find her “kind or considerate or empathetic.” She added, “In reality, I think what I’m being perceived as, is the personality traits that I show most directly, which is intense, aggressive, uptight. It sounds really negative; I don’t mean it to be.”
Emily also plans to build alliances with people with the same personality. However, she believes that building alliances with different personalities and strategies is going to take her far.
Emily Flippen Boyfriend
Emily Flippen is in a relationship with her boyfriend of ten years. They started dating when she was in college. They maintained a long-distance relationship and connected via video chatting.
“We did a decent amount of video chatting in the early stages of our relationship. I remember the anxiety that was headed into our first video chat. I literally made a notebook of topics to talk about. There were no awkward silences, and I remember being so nervous about that conversation. The idea of jumping on a social media platform and literally video chatting with a complete stranger to me is so strange,” Emily added about her relationship while talking about Tinder.
Though Emily has tagged her boyfriend a few times, she hasn’t given away any details regarding her boyfriend.
