Read on for all the info on twin sisters Nadiya and Natalie Anderson, the former “Amazing Racers” and current Survivor cast members …
1. They Were Kicked Off The Amazing Race … Twice
Nadiya and Natalie took on The Amazing Race two times … and they got kicked off both times. During the All-Stars, they got kicked off first. When they were on The Amazing Race, they were asked what annoys them about each other. Natalie stated:
Nadiya can be lazy and way too laid back at times. Also she never listens to me, even when she knows I’m right.
Nadiya, on the other hand, said:
Natalie is too pushy and always thinks she is right.
How long do you think these twins will make it on Survivor?
2. Natalie Believes her Love of the Ocean Is an Asset
Along with stamina, Natalie feels that she will go far in Survivor because she can hang with the guys and loves the ocean …
I am physically, mentally and emotionally strong. I am very strong willed and do not give up! I work well with people and feel like I would be a good tribe mate. I know I will pull my weight with the camp chores and not be a burden to my tribe. Physically, I will be able to hang with the guys and be an asset in the team challenges. Also, I love the ocean and if I had to choose one place to spend the rest of my life, it would be the beach. I’m a true island girl!
3. Nadiya And Natalie Like to Use the Phrase “Bad Ass” A Lot
In their CBS bios, both twin sisters use the term “bad ass” a great deal. For example, Natalie lists her hobbies as: crossfit, surfing and being a bad ass. She also lists her reason for being on the show as this:
Winning Survivor makes you a certified bad ass!
In Nadiya’s bio, she states this when it comes to her inspiration in life:
My parents, they always encouraged me to be a bad ass.
4. Nadiya Thinks She Will Be the Last Woman Standing
Though she has faith in her sister, Nadiya feels she will be the last “survivor” for several reasons. Her CBS bio reads:
I think I will be the sole survivor because of my physical and mental resilience. My ability to stay positive in situations and being a strong, resourceful and vital teammate/tribe mate is going to enable me to make it through this game! … Playing Survivor with Natalie is so exciting, it’s the ultimate adventure and test to our relationship! Being separated from Natalie while playing the game is going to push us to our limits! I can’t wait!
5. The Twins Credit Their Parents As Huge Inspirations
Both Natalie and Nadiya say their parents are their inspiration in life, but Natalie goes the extra mile to tell CBS:
My mother. She is the strongest and the bravest woman I know. She has always encouraged me to be myself and go after anything I want. She has supported me in all my crazy adventures and has taught me how to be a strong and fearless woman!
