Survivor Season 32 Contestant: Cydney Gillon

Cydney “Cyd” Gillon is a 22-year-old personal trainer and IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) pro. Gillon, an Ivy League fitness pro, is from Atlanta, GA and recently graduated with a degree in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania where she was also a member of the Varsity Women’s track team. She has competed in professional figure competitions for over seven years, competing in her first show at just 14 years old and turning pro at her second show at the age of 15. Her hobbies include working out, partying, yoga and meditation.

Comparisons could be drawn to Survivor: Australian Outback and Survivor: All-Stars contestant Alicia Calaway, who like Gillon also worked as a personal trainer and had competed in body building competitions. With her body building background and time spent as a track athlete at University, Cydney Gillon will be a member of the Brawn tribe on Survivor Kaôh Rōng – Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty 2.
