Claim to fame:
A personal nurse from Knoxville, Tennessee, Wesson outlasted 15 other players to become the first woman to win the $1 million prize in ,'Survivor: The Australian Outback'. Her combination of "mental acumen, physical stamina and Southern charm" helped Wessen cinch the prize in the second season. Entertainment Weekly described her as, "about as threatening as June Cleaver holding out a plate of warm cookies." In, 'Survivor: All Stars' she immediately targeted and thus quickly eliminated.
Where are they now?
Wesson became a spokeswoman for the National Arthritis Foundation and wrote a memoir, "Out Live, Out Laugh, Out Love."
Wesson will compete on the show's 27th season, Blood vs. Water, alongside her daughter Katie.
