Taihlaura Houston is a contestant from Survivor: Grenada- Temptations.

Starting off as a member of the Eddiot's Angels alliance, Taihlaura used her ability to make strong social bonds to her advantage, playing people on other sides to obtain information to get Eddiot's Angels ahead, orchestrating a 4-3-2-1 vote at Gouyave's first Tribal. She lost the trust of her allies, however, when she was found to be hiding Trinity Lewis's plan to blindside Eddiot Brantley. At the swap, she landed with two alliance members but again landed herself in hot water as none of them knew what side she was on. Despite promising not to overplay and maintain her loyalty to Eddiot's Angels, she did so anyway, and at the post-swap Gouyave's first Tribal Council, Lulu Nguyen took advantage of this to blindside Taihlaura 3-1-1.


Name(Age): Taihlaura Houston (29)

Tribe Designation: TBD

Current Residence: Olathe, Kansas

Occupation: Pharmaceutical Sales Rep.

Claim to Fame: My purple hair and my uncanny ability to find an excuse to have anything and everything with peanut butter! No joke, I love that stuff and it goes on anything I can put it on, within reason.

Inspiration in Life: Mom and Dad, who were firm but fair and didn’t put any limits on me achieving my dreams. Because of that I grew into a confident, independent woman and we have a very strong relationship.

Hobbies: Having mimosas and playing tennis with friends, and playing backgammon.

Pet Peeves: People who complain about superficial things like hair colours and piercings when applying for jobs. It has no impact on the ability to work!

If You Could Have Three Things on an Island What Would They Be and Why: 1) An endless jar of peanut butter, without which I will surely die. 2) A game of backgammon to relax and bond with my tribe 3) Lime jello, a guilty pleasure of mine that no one’s gonna judge me for because we’re all starving!

SURVIVOR Contestant You are Most Like: Kim Spradlin. I won’t be afraid to manipulate my social bonds and lie to peoples’ faces to advance myself further.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: To give my boyfriend, Adam, and I a better life.

Why You Will “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’m smart, tough and social. I’ve got what it takes to make it out here.

Why You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: My social game is gonna be my everything. I’m surprisingly great at manipulating. I’ll make you feel a part of my group when you’re not, I’ll make you comfortable, and if the time comes, I’ll strike. I’m very, very good at making bonds like that. I think the Jury will eventually respect that, even if they do get hurt.
