Pittstown, NJ


Originally from Pittstown, New Jersey, Michelle Tesauro is currently single and residing in Washington, D.C. She recently graduated from Virginia Polytechnic Institute where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in business and marketing. She also participated in a student ambassador program for Pamplin College of Business where she gave speeches to prospective students about the benefits of the attending the school.

While in college, she worked as an airport media marketing intern, a lifeguard and, during summers, with the Universal Cheerleaders Association. Her favorite hobbies are gymnastics, stunting and reading. She describes herself as imaginative, clumsy and athletic.

She is most proud of participating in the annual Polar Bear Plunge fundraiser where she runs into the freezing Atlantic Ocean every February to raise money for the Special Olympics. Her favorite sport is soccer. She has a pet dog named Reggie and a fish named Rosco. Her parents are her heroes as she feels they teach her how to be a better person.

She believes she's ready for SURVIVOR: PEARL ISLANDS because her sense of humor helps her to get through difficult situations. Her birth date is January 16, 1981.

Let us discuss Michelle Tesaura

(My little disclaimer: As with all Survivor profiles, I am totally making all this stuff up as if I actually have a clue. I do not in any way know any of these survivors. However, I've received many emails from past Survivors complimenting me on my insight. So, although I make this crap up, sometimes I'm actually right.)

Michelle is going to be the sweetheart of Survivor 7. The other cutie blonde, Christa, thinks it's going to be her, but it doesn't appear as though Michelle has been out trying to score hard drugs.

Plus, Michelle has a fish named Rosco.

AND! I hope she never takes off those glasses because that librarian look really works for me.

She was a cheerleader, but seems to be more interested in the gymnastics aspect of cheerleading as opposed to the we're-losing-by-30-points-but-I'm-still-smiling-real-big-because-you-just-never-know-right?-Go-Gobblers! annoying happiness aspect of cheerleading.

She also did the Polar Bear Plunge to help raise money for the Special Olympics. She was one of those tour guides that take prospective students around and was probably perfect for the job. ("Go Gobblers! Are you a Hokie?! I'm a Hokie and you can be one, too!")

FYI: Gobblers is Va Tech's mascot and a Hokie is a "student, alum, or fan who supports Virginia Tech with spirit and enthusiasm."

Her audition video was really silly, but since Michelle is so adorable, it totally worked.


I'm having a difficult time coming up with things to say about Michelle other than that she's a cutie-pie sweetheart. Because she's also athletic and what initially seems to be a good work ethic, she should do pretty well as long as she doesn't get sick early on.

Other than that, I'm sorry I couldn't be more creative. I've decided to just add a few more pictures, instead.
