Maryanne Oketch On Survivor 42
A self-proclaimed energetic, empathetic, and chaotic, Maryanne Oketch landed on Survivor 42 believing that she will be able to win the SURVIVOR title with $1 million bucks because she is a social person and the show at its core is a numbers game.
She is a relatively new Survivor fan. The first season she watched fully was David vs. Goliath and soon she found the show to be “top dog!”.
When asked who she identifies concerning the former Survivor winner and non-winners, Maryanne hinted she might be playing a little bit of Sarah Lacina, Vecepia, Lauren Beck, Gabby Pascuzzi, and Debbie from season 32.
Looking back Maryanne said this one experience in life prepared her for the game.
This was when she had gone for her lifeguarding certificate because of this fear of water left by a nearly-drowning incident when she was a young child. Anyway, Maryanne shared she was the slowest swimmer there. Because she started late, everyone was younger than her and they did well. She on the other hand just failed and failed. Not wanting to give up so easily she kept pushing herself and on her seventh attempt, she finally got the timed swim. This very tenacity is what she said she would be relying on when surviving on the show.
