Bianca Anderson is a contestant from Australian Survivor (2016).

A private investigator, Bianca came into the game lying about her occupation to protect herself and analysing her tribe for alliances and potential threats down the road. This would wind up being her downfall when she targeted Flick Egginton for having tight social bonds and the information was relayed back to Flick. Despite Peter Fiegehen asking to be voted out for being a physical liability, Flick's alliance of five deemed Bianca too untrustworthy and she was blindsided.

Bianca has a degree in psychology, a masters in criminology and currently works as a private investigator, and believes she is coming into the show fully prepared.

"I am not going in blind. My strategic thinking and abilities will come naturally. My physical capabilities will mean I am an asset." Her strategy on the island is to make her job sound boring and she plans to say she is just a "paper pusher" to keep her out of the spotlight. However, what her opponents do not know is that she has put hours of research into her game plan, watching all the seasons of US Survivor, taking notes, devising strategies and using positive visualisation.

Before becoming a private investigator, Bianca worked across a variety of industries, including a role at the Department of Justice, a job as a doulabirthing attendant and as a bartender.

Bianca's game plan is to sit back and let others do the talking. She says: "I want to form an alliance within an alliance. My primary one would be with a male [competitor] and I'll try to stay true to that. I want to use agents [competitors] to make big moves, and initiate votes after I quietly suggest it. I'll watch sleeping patterns and general observations. Awareness is critical and I need to adapt at a moment's notice."

A very organised and meticulous person, Bianca has been preparing for months by slowly decreasing her food intake and getting used to eating the same bland food every day.

It is the other castaways who could be a concern for her. Bianca says: "I have high standards and expect the same of others. I'm not used to using people or lying so that will be outside my usual parameters of life. On Australian Survivor, my word will be meaningful for as long as it suits my game plan. I will break alliances if necessary."

Bianca likes to keep busy, active and productive with travelling, boxing, dancing and spending time with her partner of 11 years and her "babies", as she calls her cats.[1]

Australian Survivor

Bianca started out on the Saanapu tribe, where she quickly started playing the game by lying about her career as a private investigator, not wanting to put a target on her back. Even so, she, along with Kylie and Peter were quickly pushed to the bottom of the tribe, being left out of Flick's majority alliance. Saanapu went on to win the first Immunity Challenge, sparing Bianca another three days.

On Day 4, Bianca began to notice that Brooke and Flick were becoming a tight pair and wanted to break them up. She soon tried to get Kylie on board with taking a shot at them if they lost the upcoming challenge, but did not get a solid answer.

After Saanapu lost the second Immunity Challenge, Peter had decided that his body couldn't handle the conditions anymore and asked his tribe to vote him out. Despite his pleas, Bianca still wanted Flick to be the one to go, and spoke to Conner about blindsiding her. However, Conner immediately rattled Bianca out to his alliance member, Flick, who now wanted to send Bianca home instead. In the end, Flick's alliance decided to vote for the untrustworthy Bianca over the physically weak Peter, blindsiding her.
