Hannah Gough is a contestant from Survivor New Zealand: Nicaragua.

Hannah started her Survivor career as the underdog for her size, but tried to prove to her tribe that she is more than what she appears. But even with solid friendships with her fellow tribemates, she was blindsided on Day 1. Hannah got chance for redemption and won her first Redemption Island Duel against fellow Day 1 vote-out Dee Harper, but lost the following duel to former tribemate Tony Deane, placing 15th overall.


How would you describe yourself? A very alternative, kickass, powerlifting, sassy pinup gal with pink hair, a killer sense of 1950s style and a mindset that wants to prove to people that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.
Why are you doing Survivor? I want to prove to NZ that there is more to people than appearance. I work out five times a week and pick up more than my bodyweight. Yes, I am curvy but I am hella strong at the same time. I live by a motto of "fit, healthy and strong at any size". Beauty and strength comes in all shapes and sizes. I want to prove to people you are not defined by a number!
What did you do to prepare? Cardio, all the cardio! I would do two cycles of tabata 5 times a week! Mentally, I knew it was going to be tough. I know people are going to judge me on my appearance, so I made an aspiration wall to remind myself of why I was going to do this crazy thing. I also binge-watched so many Survivor episodes – it got to the point I was freaking myself out so I stopped.
What are your pet peeves? Being lied to. If you say, "you got my back" and then lie to me, it's on!
What's your strategy?To lay low, do what I am told, and prove that I have strength until I can make my move.
