Why Christa Thinks She's a Survivor: Christa believes it's her food-making skills.
KIdzworld's Opinion: This girl annoys cops and her only skill is cooking. She'll be booted early. Then again, people like Heidi, Neleh and Elisabeth made it pretty far on nothing but a perky smile - so who knows?

Kidzworld's Opinion: Jon Dalton is a cutie, but not much else. Good looks hasn't gotten boys far on Survivor - well, maybe he's strong like Colby Donaldson. If not, he's a goner.

Kidzworld's Opinion: Shawn Cohen comes across like a good guy who will probably be an asset to his tribe and make it until the merge. At that point, his strength will get him voted off.
Survivor 7 - Michelle TesauroAge: 22
About Michelle Tesauro: Michelle is a former
Why Michelle Thinks She's a Survivor: Michelle believes her sense of humor will help her to get through difficult situations.
Kidzworld's Opinion: Michelle Tesauro is one of those annoying, young pretty things whose biggest contribution to Survivor will be her multiple bikini changes. She may be voted off early but, hey, didn't this exact type of girl win a million bucks on Survivor Amazon?

Why Trish Thinks She's a Survivor: Trish thinks it's her athletic skills.
Kidzworld's Opinion: Trish is levelheaded and atheletic. She should be in the final four - but this is Survivor and nothing makes sense on this show, so she'll be gone by the fourth episode.
Survivor 7 - Burton RobertsAge: 31
