Jenna Bowman is a contestant from Survivor: Ghost Island.

Although one of the more quiet characters, Jenna was a key member of the original Malolo alliance. Her allegiances caused her to constantly be on the bottom through the swaps and the merge. Her downfall was when she trusted her Naviti rivals to protect her, causing her to not work with former ally Donathan, and ultimately leading to her own blindside.

Three words to describe you: Creative, open minded, and adventurous.
What's your personal claim to fame? I feel the most fulfilled when I can make someone's day or even make them smile. I think it's important to not only maintain healthy relationships with friends and family, but also to make a difference in a total stranger's life. I don't care what type of person you are, seeing someone better off because of something you did changes you for the better. Pay it forward, people. Even the smallest gesture can make a large impact!
Who or what is your inspiration in life? I'd say my daily hopes and dreams are inspired by all of the unique creatures, cultures, and nature that surrounds us on this planet.
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? First, lemons to flavor my water/food and bleach my hair. Second would be Mentos gum to chew, and finally, pen and paper to document my journey/write love letters to a hot castaway.
What's your reason for being on Survivor? Because why the hell not? Literally can't think of a single reason why anyone would say no to an experience of a lifetime. Life is too short to not say "YES."
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I have been able to manifest anything and everything I've ever wanted in my life—it's pretty cool. Not to brag, but I say I want something and I always get it. So hopefully by saying "I'll survive," I will win or at least come out of the experience with nothing but a profound appreciation of what I just accomplished.[2]
