They will vote for me to win the million because I'm likeable.

A Piscean, attorney and a bit of a tomboy, Lezel played volleyball for South Africa and positive energy, karma, yoga and parallel universes are part of her every day.
What you should know about her: Positive energy, karma, yoga and parallel universes are part of her every day vocabulary. She's a bit of a tomboy and played volleyball for South Africa.
Describes herself as: Open minded and independent but also competitive and responsible.
Her worst qualities: She talks too much, is very critical and likes to be in control.
What would she take to the island? Leatherman knife or a mackintosh.
Why she could win Survivor: "I'm great with people, and they will vote for me to win the million because I'm likeable."
What was the most difficult thing about accepting the challenge to be a Survivor? 'Publicity, and the reality TV show aspect. I had to think about that in terms of my career as a lawyer. It's a conservative career and how I'm perceived might compromise my professional ethics.'
Who is your hero? No hero, but people I feel inspired by. My mother has a sense of truth and integrity I love. I love the humaneness and integrity of Nelson Mandela. There are different people I look to for support and understanding and guidance. My personal relationships are my guidance in life.
What is your winning strategy for staying on the island? It's adaptable strategy; it's an unknown situation. I believe in alliances and I want to have at least two alliances. I'm going to choose two people I have complete trust in, that's very important.
You're on an island with nothing - what would be your first reward request? 'More food! Something high in carbs, like pizza or pasta.'[2]
