Nicholas Sifu Alsup On Survivor 45
Nicholas Sifu Alsup is one of the Survivor 45 contestants. The show premiered on 27 September on CBS.
“I want to push myself, and I want to make sure that there’s no stone left unturned. I’m going to botch it, but there’s a saying that [goes], “I don’t want any ghost next to my deathbed.” And it’s by Nelson Mandela. You don’t want to say “what if.” You don’t want to say, “I shouldn’t have [dne] this or that.” And when I watched Survivor–I binged all 40 seasons of it at the time–I got turned on to it,” talking about why he wanted to join the show, Nicholas told Parade. “I was like, “This is worth it. This is an adventure of a lifetime that speaks to my soul and everything I want to do in life.” To be primitive, without food, around these random people you don’t know, and to have to challenge yourself in every which way. It just made sense for me.”
He then named Tony Vlachos as the winner and Woo as his non-winner.
For challenge prep, Nicholas had to fast, and he usually ate five to six meals a day. He worked out early in the morning, “like 3:00 or 4:00 a.m. I would get up, hit the treadmill, hit the stair stepper. And I would burn at least 2400 calories a day. People thought I was insane. But they didn’t know why because you can’t really say anything. They’re like, “Sifu, you’ve been to the gym four times today.” I’m like, “Well, I really am enjoying it. I’m enjoying suffering.” I did some workouts in the sauna because it is incredibly hot here. So, I just tried to replicate what I thought it would be as much as possible seven days a week.”
Nicholas Sifu Alsup Wife
Nicholas Sifu is off the dating market and in fact, is engaged to his soon-to-be wife Courtine Johnson. On Courtnie’s birthday in June 2023, Nicholas gushed about his future wife stating that she is “the most amazing person I know, and I feel so blessed to have you in my life.”
In parts, he wrote, “Thank you for being my partner, my best friend, and my soulmate. You make my life complete, and I am forever grateful for you. I love you more than words can express, and I can’t wait to spend many more birthdays with you.”
Nicholas has shared on his Facebook that he proposed to his fiance on 25 May 2022. They were also surprised with an engagement gift. The head chef in a country club in Key West treated them with the finest dish they had ever tested.
In 2021, Nicholas and Courtnie closed down on a house and became proud owners.
He announced the exciting news with, “As of Monday the 18th we’ve officially closed on a house! Courtnie and I are officially homeowners! We are forever thankful to everyone involved in helping us make this possible! We had a rockstar of a realtor Aubree Willis! if you are in the market she is the best! We would love to have a massive housewarming party but we can not so we made a registry for housewarming gifts it’s weird the amount of things you forget you need or want when owning a home! thanks a ton! cheers to the future! check out our registry for homewarming gifts.”
His first introduction to Survivor was during the time of the pandemic. He and his fiance watched season 40 and then watched it all.
