Chanelle’s wants to win the money for her parents, whom the newest Survivor castaway lists as her heroes, as a thank you for building a life that set her and her siblings up for success. That alone would endear her to viewers, but here are some other fun facts about Chanelle.
Chanelle, who is on Survivor 42 with Lindsay Dolashewich, currently works for Goldman Sach, according to her bio on the CBS’s Survivor website. She has taken her background in job recruitment and started “a mentorship program that helps young women get into professional spaces.” Chanelle holds an Associate’s Degree from Eastern Connecticut State University and received her Bachelor’s Degree in communications from the University of Connecticut. While in college, she was a member of the Tau Sigma National Honor Society, Vice President of the Public Relations Student Society of America, and served as a senator in the student government. During college, Chanelle also spent time in Cameroon, Africa volunteering with UCEmpower. While there, she taught math, spelling, and computer literacy to underprivileged children.
Chanelle may reside in New York City, but the newest resident of Survivor’s Mamanuca Islands has explored exotic destinations all over the world. Chanelle’s Instagram, highlights include photos and videos of her adventures across the United States to places such as San Fransisco, Arizona, Miami, Rio Grand, and Malibu Beach. She has also had several international excursions to destinations including Paris, Athens, Rio De Janeiro, Mexico, Dubai, India, and Thailand.
Chanelle’s Age & More Fun Facts
Chanelle is currently 29-years-old and her CBS Survivor profile lists “competitive” as one of three words that would describe her. So it’s no surprise the season 42 castaway was a student athlete. Chanelle attended Hamden High School in Hamden, Connecticut where she was a member of the varsity volleyball team. She also learned in both cross country and track & field, and she competed as a pole vaulter. Her athleticism will certainly work to her advantage once the battle-royale Survivor games begin.
Chanelle Howell lists former Survivor contestant Kim Spradlin as a player she’d most like to emulate. She believes Kim played a perfect game and hopes to keep that same energy while she is in survival mode. Between her negotiating skills, her physical shape, and her smarts, Chanelle should have a pretty good chance of winning in the end.
