Elizabeth Kim is one of the twenty castaways of Survivor: Samoa. The 33-year-old South Korean native moved to the United States with her parents when she was two, and grew up in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. After graduating from Barnard-Columbia, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and working for a top law firm in New York City, she became an urban planner, facilitating real estate projects for the city government. She keeps fit during her free time, usually by playing tennis, although lately she’s been training for a marathon.
The self-described “social butterfly” is opinionated and passionate, although sometimes it makes her more blunt than others hope to be. Apart from that, she isn’t willing to tell her tribe about her background, preferring to keep mum on her details while being on top of her game.
