Meet Emily Flippen, the 28-year-old investment analyst from McKinney, Texas, now living in Laurel, Maryland. Emily is a member of the Lulu tribe. With a direct, genuine, and aggressive nature, she’s drawn to Survivor as a way to “live a more interesting life.” Emily’s past experience in Shanghai has equipped her to work with diverse backgrounds, and while she sees similarities with Kass, she’s ready to make her unique mark in the game. She values openness in an alliance partner and boasts passing all three CFA exams on the first attempt. Despite not fitting the typical Survivor mold, Emily’s unconventional qualities make her a stealthy and unpredictable contender for the Sole Survivor title.
