Kendra McQuarrie On Survivor 45
Kendra McQuarrie is the star of Survivor 45.
Talking about her journey to Survivor, she added, “What brings me to Survivor is that same kind of gut feeling, excited feeling that I tend to follow in my life if you’re not picking that up already. The same thing happened in Taos, New Mexico; I was like, “This is something I have to do.” Everyone thought I was crazy. They’re like, “Kendra, what do you mean? You’re gonna go build what? What are these?” [Laughs.] It’s just a feeling that I get about these adventures that I go on. It’s just like, ‘This is what I have to do, and nothing’s going to stop me.’ ”
She added, “Same way with Survivor. I hadn’t watched it in a while. I put on an episode last summer to watch before I went to bed I didn’t go to bed I stayed up for eight hours, completing the entire season. It was like seven o’clock in the morning, the damn birds are chirping, and I’m lying there. [Mimes laying in bed.] This is verbatim what I say: “I could win this [expletive] game.” And that was it. I’m bartending. They’re like, “Kendra, what are you up to?” I’m like, “I’m gonna be on Survivor.” I hadn’t even applied yet. But I knew that I was going to be on this [expletive] show. Then, I submitted my audition tape.”
Four months later, she got the call.
Talking about the winner and non-winner, she named Natalie for her “determination and drive and the fact that she was first on [Edge of Extinction] and came all the way around and made it to the Final Three” and Cody from season 43.
Because she has a big personality and takes a lot of space. She was a class clown in elementary school, middle school, and high school. So, she is hoping that her “goofiness, lightheartedness, and ability to make literally anything into a joke kind of takes that off.”
Talking about one experience that prepared herm Kendra wrote, “Walking the Camino Primitivo in Spain by myself definitely prepared me for this game! Walking alone over 15 miles in a day in a new country with nothing but my backpack showed me how determined and resourceful I am.”
Kendra McQuarrie Job
Kendra McQuarrie worked as an intern at Earthship Biotecture. But, there have been no updates on LinkedIn since 2015. But her profile states that she is a bartender.

Moreover, Kendra was a volunteer at The Salvation Army and also served EnvironMENTALLY Friendly.
Kendra graduated from Haverhill High School in 2010 and also went to Salem State University (philosophy). She left the college right before it ended to build Earthships in the middle of the desert.
Regarding that incident, she said, “That was the beginning of my crazy Kendra shenanigans, let’s just say. So, I learned what Earthships were because I was in Environmental Studies in college. But basically, they’re self-sustained houses made out of recycled materials. So you dig into the ground a little bit, and then you get car tires, essentially. Places will actually pay you to take the car tires from old tire warehouses. And then you spend all day pounding these tires. You have a dirt bench; the dirt bench gives you the dirt to pound the tires. You create these tire “bricks,” you build up a wall, cement in the holes, and that’s the basic foundation of an Earthship.”
