Julie Rosenberg is a contestant from Survivor: Edge of Extinction.

A self-admitted emotional character, Julie formed a strong friendship with tribemate Ron Clark, with whom she joined the dominant Kama Six alliance. With the alliance splintering after the merge, however, Julie's emotions got the best of her in a heated Tribal Council that resulted in alliance member Julia Carter's elimination. Despite winning two Immunity Challenges and positioning herself in a steady position throughout the game, which ultimately led her to the Final Tribal Council, she was criticized and largely overlooked by the jury for her perceived emotional gameplay, gaining no votes to win, resulting in her finish in third place.

Age: 46
Hometown: Baltimore
Current Residence: New York City
Occupation: Toymaker
Hobbies: Psychological thrillers, hot yoga classes, escape rooms, and spending way too much time online researching gluten-free recipes that I never end up making.
Pet peeves: Hoarders, people who invade my personal space, and anything that's floral scented.
Three words to describe you: Underestimated, determined, and maybe a little neurotic. Okay, I'm definitely neurotic.
What is your personal claim to fame? Raising my two kids who impress me every day with their intelligence, strength, humor, and resilience. I hope I can make them as proud of me as I am of them.
Who or what is your inspiration in life? My husband. He is incredibly smart, caring, and selfless. He has always been there for me and supports me in everything I do. Every time I watch him with our children, it reminds me that he is the best example of what a parent should be and inspires me to be a better parent myself.
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
My iPhone for its playlist of my favorite songs to keep me motivated when things get tough.
A picture of my husband, kids, and two Bernese mountain dogs to remember that they are back home rooting for me.
Milk chocolate. That's self-explanatory.
Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? A combo of Stephenie for her tenacity, Cirie for her humor and fun-spirit, and Dawn for her propensity to have some emotional moments.
What's your reason for being on Survivor? The challenge. I have wanted to play this insane game since I saw the very first episode. Something about pushing myself to the absolute physical and mental limit possible has always appealed to me. It's about proving to myself and to those that know me that I can actually do this!
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? There is no doubt that I will be out of my comfort zone every step of the way, but when I set out to do something I become laser focused and I never give up. While I may not be the strongest physical player out there, I am smart, social, and will play the game with both my brain and my heart. I have waited 18 years to do this and nothing is going to stop me from winning. No other outcome is even an option![2]
