Alexis Taylor Maxwell is a contestant from Survivor: Cagayan.

Alexis quickly found herself in a majority four-person alliance on the Solana tribe, allowing her to make it to the tribe switch. Despite being in an alliance with Jeremiah Wood, they both became the targets on the new Aparri tribe after original Solana outsider Morgan McLeod flipped on them. Deemed untrustworthy by her tribemates, who saw her as the most likely to flip back to her original alliance at the merge, she was blindsided in 12th place.

Name (Age): Alexis Maxwell (21)
Tribe Designation: Beauty Tribe
Current Residence: Addison, Ill.
Occupation: Student at Northwestern University
Personal Claim to Fame: Studying abroad in Ireland and visiting eight different countries while I was there. It made me more independent, adventurous and responsible.
Inspiration in Life: My mom, because she is a fearless and confident woman. My Dad, because he is smart and hardworking, and my brother, because he is my role model and pushes me to be better.
Hobbies: Traveling, watching scary movies and eating.
Pet Peeves: Guys who turn into "Stage five clingers" and people who blow their nose in public.
3 Words to Describe You: Funny, flirty and smart.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? More than one bikini—I like to change it up; hair ties—I have a lot of hair and need to put it up for challenges, and a blanket.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Hopefully Parvati, because she combined sex appeal with strategy and intelligence.
Reason for Being on Survivor: My dad! He loves the show so much and would kill to be on it. I'm playing for both of us.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: My strongest asset is my background in psychology. I have studied and experimented with group dynamics and understand how to play a specific role in a group. I will also use sex appeal and flirting as a means of disguising my intelligence.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I have always been aware of my role in a group and know how to lead in a sneaky way. I will use my education and flirty personality to assure I'm always in a good position.
Do You Consider Yourself a Brain, a Beauty or a Brawn? I would consider myself a brain! I work my butt off at Northwestern and consider this an accomplishment that defines me.
Who Do You Think Has the Best Chance in the Game of Survivor: Brains, Beauty or Brawn? I would say beauties for the mere fact that they possess the least threatening label. No one would expect a beauty to be a challenge threat or a strategic player, so they enter the game with the smallest target on their back.[1]


Alexis was originally placed on the Solana tribe consisting of castaways said to use their looks and social skills to get ahead. During the First Impressions vote on Day 1, the tribe elected LJ McKanas as their leader, who in turn deemed Morgan McLeod the weakest member, leaving her on the outs the tribe. Although Solana won the first two Immunity Challenges of the season, Brice Johnston began to view Alexis as the "flirt" when discussing the tribe dynamics.

At this point, Alexis formed a four-person alliance with LJ, Jefra Bland, and Jeremiah Wood. Solana lost the next Immunity Challenge on Day 8, sending them to their first Tribal Council. Brice was trying to get Jeremiah to flip and vote out Alexis due to needing LJ for challenges. The alliance decided to split their votes between Brice and Morgan, then vote out Brice because they believed that neither had the Hidden Immunity Idol. At Tribal Council, Jeremiah ultimately stayed loyal and Brice was voted out in the revote. After Tribal Council, Morgan apologized for voting against Alexis and confronted Jeremiah about his decision, making Alexis wary of Jeremiah. Solana then won the following Immunity Challenge on Day 11.

When a tribe switch was announced on Day 12, Alexis, Jeremiah, and Morgan ended up with Kass McQuillenSarah LacinaSpencer Bledsoe, and Tasha Fox on the new Aparri tribe. Upon arrival at their new camp, the Beauties very quickly turned on each other, giving the former members of Luzon the power within the tribe, though their plotting was put on hold when Aparri won immunity. After the new Solana won the next Reward Challenge, they were given the opportunity to raid Aparri's camp, sending over Tony Vlachos and Woo Hwang. Before they left, Tony and Woo supposedly gave Jeremiah a clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol, but the clue was actually for the Solana camp, and they showed Jeremiah the clue only to turn the rest of Aparri against him. Jeremiah later told Alexis and Spencer that the clue was for the Solana camp, but neither believed him and Alexis told Spencer that Jeremiah had been shifting alliances. After Aparri lost the following Immunity Challenge, Alexis was told that Jeremiah would be voted out. However, Alexis was deemed more likely to flip back to the original Solana alliance than Jeremiah, and much to her shock, Alexis was unanimously voted out. Alexis walked away from the Tribal Council area in disappointment and tears.
