Survivor 45” contestant Emily Flippen has observed former players “give in to their emotions” and not do well, but she’s prepared to combat her own. The 28-year-old investment analyst from Maryland identifies a need to separate “short term emotions” from “long term goals” in order to play successfully. Watch their full CBS interview below.

Prior to arriving in Fiji, Emily says she was told that her “personality was very similar to” Kass McQuillen from “Cagayan.” Because she identifies as an “outspoken, more aggressive female” that gets “irritated when [she’s] surround by people who think they’re better than [her],” Emily does see herself as being inspired by “Chaos Kass.” To combat that nature, she plans to “slowly chip away at people and they’ll start to see [her] for who [she is].”

As someone who has been in a long term relationship and at the same job for six years, Emily realized that she was “getting a little boring.” The journey in “Survivor” comes from a “desire to really challenge [herself] and to come out of it a more interesting and more lived person.” That being said, there is a concern that she could succumb to external factors. Emily admits, “I’m really scared of bugs, I get really sweaty, I hate the sand, I sunburn super easily… I could just keep going!” Good luck out there, Emily!
