Andrea Boehlke [Interview]

 

For the last 17 years, there has been a particular CBS show that has been captivating audiences for all of the right reasons. That show is Survivor. Now on its 34th season, it is a show that has never let up and only continues to improve in quality, as well as viewership. When Survivor first became a staple in American television, it was one of a kind due to the simple fact that reality television, while not an entirely new concept, was only beginning to flourish. But, now in 2017, it has proven to be one of a kind amongst a plethora of reality television shows. It’s the sort of show that the entire family can enjoy and embrace into their living rooms. The young and old love this show, which is a very important factor that we are so happy to be able to showcase today with a wonderful interview from one of the finest players in Survivor history.

Andrea Boehlke has been a staple in the Survivor world for quite sometime. She is only the 7th person to spend over 100 days on the islands, and has performed incredibly well. And in Season 34, she was definitely a fan favorite. And on a personal level, she was a fan favorite in my own household to a certain 11 year old girl who has been following Andrea’s performances on Survivor since she first showed up back in Season 22. That 11 year old girl would my daughter, future astronaut and the beholder of a beautiful soul Ava Trembath. This is a girl who adores Andrea’s courage, ambition, and drive. And she is just one of so many young girls who can watch Andrea and realize that there strong women out there in the world who can accomplish whatever they want in this world with examples from the likes of a beast like Boehlke.

So, with the finale of Survivor commencing tonight, as well as the amazing career that Andrea has been able to proceed forward with after 100+ days on Survivor, I thought it would be amazing to be able to link up my 11 year old daughter with one of her favorite Survivor players. And that is what we did. The questions below were formulated by said 11 year old Ava Trembath who finds so much delight in watching strong women like Andrea work their asses off both physically and mentally in the game of Survivor.

After you have completed reading this damn sweet interview between Andrea and Ava, and have caught her on tonight’s season finale of Survivor, make sure you make your way over People.com to catch her on the morning show People Now. It is a brilliant bit of morning program that everyone is sure to enjoy.

So ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Andrea Boehlke, featuring questions from Ava Trembath, age 11. Enjoy!

 

Who is your favorite Survivor player?

That’s a hard question! I would have to say Tyson is one of my all time favorites, because not only did he really perfect his Survivor game, he is one of the most hilarious people to play, in my opinion.

Will you play Survivor again? What was your favorite season of Survivor that you were on?

After playing three seasons of Survivor, I think I might be done. It really takes a toll on you out there! My favorite season to play would have to be Survivor: Caramoan. I had an absolute blast with the people out there. Playing with Cochran was a lot of fun, and we had a lot of inside jokes that I’ll always cherish.

What was the best thing you experienced on Survivor?

Hitting my 100 day mark on Survivor was a pretty big deal. I was the 7th person to hit 100 days of playing Survivor, and shortly after that I got to see my mom on the island. It’s so incredible that I got to see my mom and dad both out on the island, and it’s extra special because it’s their favorite show.

What was the worst thing you experienced on Survivor?

I’ve had some great moments on Survivor, but the lows are especially tough. I had an epic two day meltdown after Zeke betrayed me on Survivor: Gamechangers. They never showed any of it, but I seriously thought I had lost my marbles for a bit there.

What is your favorite Survivor challenge?

I’m a big fan of the challenges I won 😉 I loved where we had to balance on this floating wood thing in the middle of the ocean on Survivor: Caramoan. I ended up winning against Brenda! I love challenges where you have to push yourself mentally and physically.

What is your least favorite Survivor challenge?

I’m not a big fan of upper body strength challenges, because I don’t think I would ever win them.

What was the last thing that made you smile?

The last thing that made me smile was some silly joke I had with my co-host Jeremy on People Now. We host a morning show for People.com, so since I’m up every morning at 5 am, I can get a little delusional or buzzed on too much coffee. I don’t even remember what the joke is, but I remember my stomach hurt from laughing so much.
