Marian is probably the biggest Survivor fan in South Africa. She’s followed each season closely and has been a particularly online vocal commentator about the show. She knows the game inside out, but still struggled during her season when the addition of captains put her off her game.
Despite that, she still made her mark on the game as Survivor SA’s first true female villain – confident that she had a better grasp of the game than her fellow castaways and was more astute than them. Her biggest challenge this season will be adapting to the way the game has changed in the eight years since she played.
