Cassandra "Angie" Jakusz[1] is a contestant from Survivor: Palau.

Chosen last for the infamous ill-fated Ulong tribe, Angie was initially the outsider due to her distinct sense of difference from everyone else. Seeking out to prove to everyone that she was useful, Angie became a fierce competitor in challenges, often being perceived as one of the stronger females on Ulong. At the Double Tribal Council, an unassuming attempt at getting the tribe's most capable member in Bobby Jon Drinkard eliminated ended her game, as after the target Ibrehem Rahman was granted immunity by Koror, she was voted out for being the next weakest.

Angie initially bonded with Coby Archa, both knowing how it feels to be ostracized. Despite this, Coby chose to select Caryn Groedel to be on Koror instead of Angie. However, Angie was selected to be on the Ulong tribe by Ibrehem Rahman. Due to the twist of the unpicked people being eliminated, Angie hugged Wanda Shirk and Jonathan Libby goodbye and was saddened as they left. Angie felt uncomfortable as the last person picked overall and felt she was on the wrong tribe. After losing the first challenge, she was targeted by Jolanda Jones for being an apparent challenge liability and being the last picked. However, she was spared because Jolanda was blamed for losing the challenge. In the next challenges, Angie proved herself to be a fierce competitor. Unfortunately, Ulong would lose the next three Immunity Challenges. Angie went along with the majority and voted out Ashlee AshbyJeff Wilson, and Kim Mullen. On Day 12, Jeff revealed both tribes would be going to Tribal Council. Ulong lost the Reward Challenge again, mostly due to Ibrehem. He was the initial target but a twist allowed Koror to give an Ulong member immunity for that Tribal Council only. Ibrehem, the obvious target, was granted immunity by Koror. The vote would end in a 2-2-1 tie between Angie and Bobby Jon Drinkard. At the revote, Angie received all the votes and was voted out.
