Sarah Wade from Survivor season 44 is fueled to compete for her best friend, Kalie, who passed away

Everyone who appears on the show prepares themselves some way or the other in order to compete in the famed series. Speaking to Parade in an exclusive interview, Sarah opened up about how she prepared for the competition:

"So almost two years ago exactly, my best friend died. And I think having experienced someone so young die so unexpectedly, it not only has fueled me to really pursue my dreams and go for everything that I want and be bold and brave, because you don't know how much time you have."

She further added:

"But also, I think it provides me so much inspiration and strength to think, "What would Kalie be doing?" I need to do this for Kalie, because she doesn't have that opportunity."

Talking about what excites her the most about the series, Sarah revealed:

"What excites me the most is also what scares me the most. It's not predictable. I think it favors people who can really think on their feet, understand the implications of all those new advantages and twists, and adjust their game accordingly."

Some of the hobbies that the upcoming contestant likes to do are "biking, working out, playing beach volleyball, reading, eating raw food, and drinking sweet drinks."

According to Bracketology, Sarah describes herself as a strategy-driven and fun person who's been a fan of the show. She values alliance partners who are logical, loyal, and strategic. The contestant, who graduated with summa cum laude, has a 3.98 GPA in finance and economics.

Opening up about how she thinks people will perceive her in the show, Sarah shared:

"So I think initially when people see me, I just look like a cute young gal. But usually, once people get to know me, and I think once viewers get to know me, they'll see that I'm constantly trying to learn constantly, trying to understand more and view me as a very strategic player in the game."

Survivor season 44 will premiere on March 1 only on CBS. Readers can check your local listings for more information.
