What are Chanelle Howell’s skills for Survivor 42

Chanelle Howell is a huge fan of Survivor. She said that she had watched the show since she was 10 and her entire family would watch each season together.

She said the one thing that really interested her was how the contestants have to crush each other’s dreams but remain likable enough to get them to vote for the winner at the end.

“The fact that you have to play this game where you have to hurt people’s feelings by taking away their dream, but you still need them to like you,” Chanelle said. “That really was something that I’ve enjoyed and been interested in.”

She said that her job will help her in that area.

“I’ve always been interested in people, which is why I went into recruiting. There are just so many things that transfer from my occupation into the game itself. Like building relationships.”

Will Chanelle be able to build the relationships needed to be the Sole Survivor? Tune in to find out.
