Esther’s reason for wanting to be on Survivor is:
|“|| I truly want to be on this show for the experience. I know that is a very cliché thing to say and when most people say it; they do not actually mean it. However, I do actually mean it.
I mean think about how amazing it is, to journey to another country and have a chance to meet new people. Now do not get me wrong, the money is also a motivating factor but the experience is much more of a factor than the money.
