Sandra Diaz-Twine is the first two time winner in the history of the US Version of Survivor. She succeeded on her first two attempts but failed her 3rd and 4th one. In Game Changers, Sandra Diaz-Twine got screwed by a Tribe swapped. She was two tribal councils short of the merge. In Survivor Winners at War, Tony Vlachos became the second two time winner. Sandra got eliminated one day before the merge after Denise Stapley, blindsided Sandra with her own idol. She could have dominated both of those season had she reached the merge.
Sandra is not that good at challenges but she is a beast with the social aspect of the game. Once she reaches the merge, she doesn’t even need to find idols and win challenges. She developed the ” As long as its not me” strategy. A lot of contestants who tried her formula won their seasons too.
One disadvantage Sandra will have at the Australian Survivor is the challenges are more physical.
Australians are obsessed with challenge strength and Sandra being an older female will be at disadvantage. If she can reach the merge, then it will be smooth sailing for her. I hope she ends up in a stronger tribe so she can prevent the first few tribal councils. Her being culturally different can be a disadvantage because she will playing with Australians. On the other hand, she is a Puerto Rican woman with thick accent and managed to get along with Americans.
One advantage Sandra will have, The American seasons of Survivor stopped airing in Australia after the 4th season. A lot of these Australian contestant don’t know who she is. This 5th attempt could restore her legacy or ruin her legacy. Sandra Diaz-Twine is still not a challenge beast but she is good at puzzles on her later attempts to play the game. Her Runner up in Heroes vs Villains, Russell Hantz got voted off early when he played with Australian players. So Sandra
