Sherea Lloyd is a contestant from Survivor: China.

Early in the game, she butted heads with Dave Cruser and frustrated some of her tribemates with her lack of effort around camp. However, she performed very well in challenges, and improved her social game as time progressed. After a Tribe Switch, she was eliminated by the dominant Fei Long majority.

Sherea Lloyd was born in Pontiac, Michigan. Her family moved around a lot, as she spent her early years living in Maryland, middle school in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and high school in Dallas, Texas. She received her undergraduate degree from Florida A & M University and her master's degree from Florida State University.

Lloyd has a twin sister, Maria, who currently attends Howard University Law School. She is currently a fourth grade elementary teacher. She describes herself as sassy, outspoken and caring. She enjoys dancing, working with children and watching football and basketball. She believes she will do well on Survivor because she considers herself competitive, outgoing and a leader. She believes in her ability to overcome her fears; when her mother had breast cancer (she is now fine) it proved to be a true test of her own abilities to overcome adversity.

Lloyd is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Lloyd currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Her birth date is July 31, 1981.[1]


Sherea Lloyd was initially placed on the Zhan Hu tribe. Zhan Hu turned out to be the weaker tribe and they lost the first three challenges. Sherea agreed with voting out Chicken Morris for his arguing with the tribe and for not putting everything he had into the game. At camp, Sherea noticed Dave Cruser's bickering with Ashley Massaro. She noted that you cannot boss adults around without aggravating them, which is what Dave was doing. Despite that, she agreed with voting out Ashley over Dave because she was sick and was unable to contribute around camp.

At the Day 7 Reward Challenge, Sherea along with Jaime Dugan and Peih-Gee Law won the challenge for Zhan Hu, earning the tribe comfort items, a tarp, and kerosene. The tribe had the right to kidnap one of Fei Long's members. Zhan Hu chose to kidnap Leslie Nease. Leslie revealed that she did not feel at home with her tribe as they were cynical and her faith to God was everything. The women bonded and gossiped with each other. The gossiping was used to exact information, which was successful. Sherea was a major contributor in winning Zhan Hu its first Immunity Challenge on Day 9.

Unfortunately, the Zhan Hu's rice supply had molded. Sherea tried to save the edible rice, but this gesture irked Dave, thinking she was mixing up the mold. This caused an argument between the two. Fei Long won the Reward Challenge again and kidnapped Dave. As Dave did most of the work around camp, Zhan Hu had to pick up the slack. Sherea decided to save her energy for challenges, but the others viewed her as having poor work ethic. After losing the next Immunity Challenge, Sherea was in danger for her apparent laziness. At Tribal Council, Sherea convinced the others that she was valuable and everyone decided to vote out the annoying Dave.

Sherea felt like an outsider and wanted something to challenge. She got her wish as Zhan Hu got a note telling them to pick Fei Long's strongest warriors and they would become Zhan Hu members. The tribe picked James Clement for his strength and Aaron Reisberger for his status as the tribe's leader. Zhan Hu was ecstatic as they believed they would have the numbers advantage. That thought was quickly found to be false as Zhan Hu got a note telling them that Sherea and Frosti Zernow would be switched to Fei Long. Sherea was on the outs, but quickly noticed that Jean-Robert Bellande was annoying his tribe mates. Fei Long won the Immunity Challenge, largely because Peih-Gee and Jaime lost on purpose to dispose of Aaron and keep Sherea and Frosti safe. During the next Reward Challenge, Peih-Gee let Sherea know that Zhan Hu had her back, but Sherea didn't respond, making Peih-Gee think Sherea that had turned on them. Fei Long won the challenge and a trip to a local bathhouse. Sherea sat out of the next Immunity Challenge, which was an eating contest. Zhan Hu won, putting Sherea in danger once again. Courtney Yates, however, liked Sherea and lobbied to Todd Herzog and Amanda Kimmel to vote out Jean-Robert instead due to her dislike for him. Todd and Amanda discussed whether to eliminate Sherea for her prowess in challenges, or Jean-Robert as a strategic threat. Ultimately, Sherea was voted out in a 5-2 vote.
