Chelsea Townsend is a contestant from Survivor: Ghost Island.

Because of her laid-back nature and positive attitude, Chelsea was able to slide through the pre-merge portion of the game unscathed. Come the merge, Chelsea joined the majority Naviti Alliance to eliminate players who stood in their way. However, after back to back Immunity Challenge wins worried the tribe's men, they promptly eliminated Chelsea after swing votes Donathan Hurley and Laurel Johnson sided with them.

Chelsea started on Naviti, and was one of the beneficiaries of Naviti's early winning streak which allowed her to be in the majority during both of the tribe swaps. According to Malolo, Chelsea and Sebastian were on the outs of the original Naviti members still on Naviti. However, Chelsea was involved in suggesting to her alliance that they vote out one of the male Malolo members in Michael or Brendan. At Tribal Council, Malolo continued their pitch and also revealed they had an idol, but Chelsea stayed with her original tribe and voted out Brendan. Stephanie would follow at the next Tribal. However, after the second swap Bradley became increasingly irritating toward Domenick and Chelsea due to his personality and comments. This led to Bradley's blindside at the Final Tribal Council before the merge.

After Domenick had finally gotten rid of Chris, Chelsea continued to work with Naviti, particularly with the women. She told Libby that they were planning on splitting the votes between her and Michael, which opened the door for Malolo to counter. Luckily for Naviti, Jenna, Donathan, and Laurel voted with them and Libby was eliminated due to Michael's idol. Chelsea won her first Immunity Challenge on Day 27, but she was left out of the loop in Desiree's vote out. Chelsea won immunity again on Day 29, this time facing Tribal Council in a smaller group of 5. Her, Angela, and Sebastian maintained majority over Donathan and Jenna and decided to vote for Jenna. This proved to be the correct decision as Donathan played his idol that night. Naviti's comeradary was challenged after Sebastian won the loved ones reward and took all the remaining male players with him. Angela, Chelsea, Kellyn, and Laurel began plotting against Domenick and Wendell, with the former three not knowing that Laurel was in an alliance with Domenick and Wendell. Domenick won immunity, meaning Chelsea and the other Naviti women would target Wendell. Donathan and Laurel considered making the big move against one of the biggest threats in the game, but also considered voting with the Naviti men against Chelsea due to her challenge prowess. That became the case as Chelsea was voted out 5-3.
