In the time of spring 2022, the series has returned for Season 42 and is called Survivor 42.
And now, in the rest of this ‘Swati Goel BIO’, we shall tell you about Swati’s age, parents, dating life, and more.
Swati Goel On Survivor 42
Swati Goel is just grateful to her family, mentors, and the US Military for supporting her in making this lifelong dream of Survivor come true.
Having grown up in the “most competitive” environment in America, Swati believes she has gotten pretty good at persuading people to cheerfully act in her interests and not theirs. Recommendation letters, winning elections, high attendance for all her events and all, she shared that because her entire life has been a highly successful exercise in persuasion, she can be the “sole survivor” this season.
A self-proclaimed competent, charismatic, and caring, Swati has been a big fan of this show for many years. So, she told Parade that she is prepared for all aspects of the game. When it comes to an alliance partner, she said she wants to have an alliance with somebody she thinks is a really strong player. Ideally, with a female, she said, she wished to play like the way Wendell and Dom did as a pair.
Like old times, Survivor 42 too, follows the same rule concerning elimination. Every week at least one person gets voted off the island Survivor. Swati, luckily, was not one of them as of the time of this writing.
Zach Wurtenberger was the first player to be voted off and Jackson Fox was forced to leave the show because his medication could lead to some negative long-term side effects.
