Meet Noelle Lambert, one of the contestants of Survivor 43.
Survivor has been one of the most popular and longest-running reality shows. Now in season 43, one of the interesting contestants viewers would like to know more about is Noelle Lamber, an above-knee amputee.
A survivor in her real life, Noelle joined the casts of Survivor 43 which aired on 21 September 2022. She and her 17 fellow castaways are dropped off in the Mamanuca Islands off the coast of Fiji. The survivor season starts with three tribes; Baka (yellow), Coco (blue), and Vesi (red) with six players each.
Noelle, a member of the Vesi tribe has been a tri-sport (lacrosse, basketball, and soccer.) athlete. However, she lost her leg above the knee. The native of Manchester, New Hampshire, becomes the first above-the-knee amputee to compete out of the 646 competitors over the span of 22 years. Below-the-knee amputees made up two of the prior competitors.
But, that didn’t stop her from her passion for competitive sports. She competed at the Tokyo Paralympic Games where she set a new American record for the 100-meter.
Noelle Lambert On Survivor 43
Noelle Lambert describes herself as “Tenacious, outgoing, determined.” Her pet peeves are Lazy people, slow drivers, and phony people. Talking about her proudest moment, she told Parade.com, “After my leg was amputated in 2016, I never let it define me. I returned playing Division 1 Lacrosse, and in just two years, I made the Tokyo Paralympic Track & Field team and set a new American record in the 100-meter dash.”
She adds that people don’t see her athleticism instead they feel sorry for her. They doubt her capabilities which is a big mistake.
Furthermore, she interviewed with Boston Globe and shared in a phone interview, “I wanted to represent the amputee and disability community in a really positive way. I wanted to show the world that, yes, I have a disability, yes, I’m an amputee — but that doesn’t mean I’m incapable of doing things.”
Noelle also added that she would love to play the game like former contestant Kelley Wentworth who found hidden immunity idols and created blindsides to further herself in the game. She thinks that she can be the winner because she can make friends easily which comes in handy during this competition.
She also believes in her strategizing skills and adapting to the changing environment.
About why she joined the show, Noelle told Parade, “One of the obvious reasons is I’m a huge fan of the show. I basically grew up watching it because my mom is a diehard fan as well. But another big reason is I’m here on behalf of the whole amputee community and the disability community. And I want to prove to people that people who have disabilities are not incapable of doing things.”
Noelle concluded, “And I am the first above knee amputee to ever play the game of Survivor. So having that title is incredibly special to me. Because I’m not only playing for myself, but I’m also playing for them to prove to them that they can do anything that they put their minds to.”
Noelle looks for an alliance with someone who is a big physical threat. Befriending and connecting with someone who’s really a big physical threat and really good at challenges for her would be smart and strategic because they can help me get further in her game.
Noelle Lambert Story
According to Teen Vogue, Noelle Lambert and her friend Kelly Moran of Newfields decided to go on a trip to Martha’s Vineyard, the idyllic resort island off Cape Cod. They rented mopeds which they had little experience with. She got into an accident that she described in teen vogue.
She wrote in her essay, “I was on the main road and I lost the steering. I veered left and went into a dump truck. I remember hitting it and then being on the ground, I looked down at my leg, and it was gone. Obviously, lacrosse was one of the first things I thought of, that I was never going to be able to play again.”
Then, Noelle apparently let the moped’s front tire slip onto the shoulder of the road and, in an attempt to correct the trajectory, went too far the other way. She lost control and the pair struck the side of a passing dump truck.
Noelle survived the accident but lost her leg.
Noelle was already a very gifted athlete before the accident, playing Division I lacrosse on a scholarship at UMass Lowell. But her mishap and subsequent rehabilitation provided her the fortitude she needs to succeed on Survivor. Noelle questioned if she was still on the team as soon as her coach came to see her in the hospital.
She eventually became one of the team’s top players when she made a full recovery, underwent rehabilitation, and mastered the usage of her prosthetic limb.
