Survivor One World:  Nina Acosta
Age: 51
Tribe: Salani

Here we meet 51 year old retired LAPD officer, Nina Acosta.  She competed twice to become the first female SWAT member in L.A., but failed both times.  Well, I wouldn’t really use the word ‘failed’.  She passed the training course, but was still left out, sued for discrimination and won $2 million dollars.  Personally I’d rather have the $2 million than be on a SWAT team, so it sounds like she’s a winner in my eyes.

Unless she managed her money like a rapper, she’s still probably sitting comfortably, so she is likely one of those people who will use this as an ‘experience’ and will rub people the wrong way until she’s booted pretty early.  Then again, she could show some super strong leadership on her all-female tribe and make it to merge.  I take her as a ‘love her or hate her’ type, and time will tell how her tribe feels.
