What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Starting and running my own company.
What is something we would never know from looking at you? I used to be a girl. I'm covered in tattoos. I'm a big softy when it comes to animals. I'm a collector of hurt or abandoned animals.
Who is your hero and why? My mom. No question. She had grace until the end. Her faith was unmatched. She was an awesome person. Not just a mother, but as a whole. I could only strive to be half the person she was.
Which past Survivor will you play the game most like? Elaine! Biscuit all the way. She was hard-working, confident, resilient and played a hell of a mind game! You couldn't not like her.
Why do you believe you can be the Sole Survivor? I believe it will be mentally, physically, emotionally and socially the hardest thing I'll ever tend to do. It will break me down and challenge every aspect of my being – but I know that I am a survivor in life, and this will just be another aspect I will crush.[2]


Starting the game on Taku, Jackson quickly aroused early suspicion from his tribemates when he went on an idol hunt on Day 1.[3] During his short tenure on the tribe, Jackson disclosed his background during a campfire storytelling session on Night 2. His tribemates commended Jackson on his life journey. The following morning, Lindsay Dolashewich grew concerned as Jackson was getting dehydrated and lethargic. Jeff Probst paid the tribe a visit to consult Jackson privately. It was then revealed that recently, prior to playing on Survivor, Jackson was weaning himself off of lithium, which explained his current state. Due to the potential risks of allowing Jackson to continue in the game based on those circumstances, he was evacuated before the first Immunity Challenge.
