Andrea Boehlke is a contestant from Survivor: Redemption Island, Survivor: Caramoan, and Survivor: Game Changers.

Andrea started her Survivor career subservient to Boston Rob's Stealth R Us alliance before coming into her own and playing with more agency, as she showed in her subsequent appearances in Caramoan and Game Changers. Her aptitude in the strategic, social, and physical components of the game have taken her far in each of her outings, allowing her to be the first post-Heroes vs. Villains player to survive over 100 days. However, her status as a triple threat has consistently made her an unfavorable opponent in any Final Tribal Council scenario, causing each of her games to end prematurely in a blindside.

Name (Age): Andrea Boehlke (21)
Tribe Designation: Ometepe
Current Residence: Random Lake, Wis.
Occupation: Student (University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point)
Personal Claim to Fame: Paying for my own college education and making the Dean's list every semester.
Inspiration in Life: My parents are my inspiration because they are hard-working, down-to-earth and both have a great sense of humor.
Hobbies: Sports, theater, horseback riding, hunting and outdoor activities.
Pet Peeves: "Girly-girls" and electric staplers.
3 Words to Describe You: Hard-working, competitive and outgoing.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Perhaps a mixture of J.T. because he is hard-working and has a farm background and Parvati because she's competitive and knows how to have fun, but I'm also very unique.
Reason for being on Survivor: I crave adventures. I also want to prove how tough I am.
Why you think you'll "survive" Survivor: Growing up on a farm and being a member of the 4-H club has made me both outdoorsy and resourceful. I'm also mentally tough and a bit of a social butterfly. I love being challenged and can handle the pressure.

Why you think you will be the Sole Survivor: People will underestimate me based on my looks, but I am tremendously competitive and driven. I'm feisty, brave and can manipulate people while remaining likeable.[1]

Name (Age): Andrea Boehlke (23)
Tribe Designation: Bikal
Previous Season: Survivor: Redemption Island – 14th castaway voted out/8th Jury Member
Current Residence: New York, N.Y.
Occupation: Entertainment Host and Writer
Claim to Fame: Moving to New York from Wisconsin on a whim and I'm still here!
Inspiration in Life: My father, Royal Boehlke - he's one of a kind!
Hobbies: Horseback riding, sports, traveling and getting paid to talk.
Pet Peeves: New York men who cat call women as we walk by. I don't understand what that accomplishes.
3 Words to Describe You: Quirky, driven and fierce.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why: 1) Yoga mat – It could serve as tarp/blanket/world's shortest slip 'n slide. 2) Juggling balls filled with rice – I've always wanted this. 3) A Unicorn, but not one that could fly.
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: I guess I'm a smidge like Stephenie LaGrossa when it comes to being a force in challenges and being a bit of a tomboy.
Reason for Being on Survivor: I can't really get myself to turn down a second adventure of a lifetime, so here I go again!
Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: Besides having the outdoors stuff down, I now have one season under my belt and aim to come out of the gate swinging. I'm hoping all of the crazy people will target each other right off the bat.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: There's so much luck involved, but overall I am pretty good at making friends/alliances and can be pretty sneaky if I want to be. I plan to come out strong and aggressive in an all or nothing fashion and hopefully it works in my favor.[2]

Age: 27
Hometown: New York, NY
Previously played on:
Season 22: Redemption Island, Finished 5th & Jury Member
Season 26: Caramoan, Finished 7th & Jury Member
How have you changed since the last time you played? I'm older and wiser! I was only 21 the first time I played Survivor and then 23 during my second season. I definitely feel more confident as a person, so, hopefully this translates to the game and I'm not-so paranoid. I'm also not so boy crazy, which is ideal!
What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played? I'm confident in my challenge skills, so I know I'll be a great asset early on. After playing two seasons, I know how to work my social skills to form a solid group. My biggest hurdle will be to not come across as a schemer. In Caramoan, I was constantly on the chopping block for that reason, so I've been coming up with strategies to avoid that.
What are you most proud of from the last time? I was pretty satisfied with my game in Caramoan for the reason that I was able to last as long as I did despite being high on the hit list of many people. I was also proud of myself for being able to laugh at being blindsided, and realize it's just a game.
What, if anything, do you most regret? Ha! There's a long list, but off the top of my head it would have to be finding myself in a showmance again! Not playing the Idol! Trusting Cochran!

How will you play differently this time? I will have to play a low-key aggressive game. I definitely tried to overcorrect my Redemption Island game by playing very aggressively in Caramoan, but I think everyone could see I was trying to "make moves." I have to find some sort of balance between the two and also try to break away from my "us vs. them" old-fashioned way of playing the game. I have to be open to working with every single person.[3]
