Amanda Yates[1] (née Coolley Van Cooll) is the Sole Survivor of Survivor Philippines: Palau.


Amanda Coolley Van Cooll is a general labor construction worker in Alaska. That means she's done everything from driving trucks to mixing cement. "I love building things and working with my hands," Amanda said when asked why she chose a career in what is considered male territory. A construction worker by choice, Amanda said that she got bored working in a bank, doing the same things everyday. "In construction, there's no specific job description. The work is very physical and there's always something different and new in every project," Amanda said. Amanda grew up a probinsiyana and is accustomed to island life. She is confident that her experiences prepared her enough for the game. To prepare for Survivor Philippines: Palau, Amanda did a lot of research and a lot of eating, too.
