Heidi Lagares-Greenblatt On Survivor 44
Survivor 44 kicked off in March 2023 and one contestant we met on the show is Heidi Lagares-Greenblatt. Joining Survivor was her dream though she is a latecomer to the survivor.
Heidi told Parade.com, “And from the moment I watched one episode, I was hooked. So then I ended up watching every season from the beginning. And I’ve been wanting to be on this show since I saw it for the first time. I want to represent my people, my family. I want to represent Latinas out there, Latinas working in STEM, and all those people who may have an accent, may sound different, and look different.”
Unlike many of her contestants, Heidi didn’t see many Survivor episodes. She told that her neighbors used to start a poll selecting the winner from the beginning. But when she watched the first one, she got into just because of that. When she watched the first episode, she was like, “How did I never know about this?” After moving to the US in 2003, she started watching from season 1.
As for one winner and one non-winner she identifies with, she said, “I would say a winner would be Sandra” from Puerto Rico. And the non-winner is Angelina. She said, “A lot of people saw her as villainous, but I truly like her. I mean, her negotiations changed the way that this game is played. We’ve seen the negotiations for rice later on in other seasons.”
About what prepared her for the show, Heidi shared that moving to the US was the one. She added, “I could barely speak the language; I pretty much had nothing. I didn’t have any money; I didn’t have a bed. Pretty much nothing other than an offer for a job. So that’s why I moved. And I struggled.”
Heidi added, “I moved to the middle of New York, and I didn’t have a car; I didn’t have anything. So, in the beginning, I had to struggle a bit and hustle quite a bit in order to get myself going. And that struggle and adaptation that I had to do to move to the U.S. from Puerto Rico, I’m very proud of that. It’s made me who I am. And I think a lot of what I’ve learned from that moment can be used in this game.”
Talking about what people perceive her as Heidi said that she is “bubbly” and “loves people.” She decided to keep her composure and was eager to look for an advantage in the game. She added, “The secret behind this is going to be to actually not share the secret with everyone. I feel like in the last few seasons, everyone shared every time they found an advantage or an idol, and it bit them.”
As for the best advice she received ahead of joining the show, Heidi received was from her kids and husband. Her kids told her, ” if you find an idol, do not please do not share it with anybody unless they are with you and they notice it.” Her husband said, “From my husband, it was more along the lines of, “Your physical ability will take you so far. What’s gonna take you beyond your abilities will be your mind.”
