Sales manager Kelly Czarnecki is one of the contestants of the reality series Survivor: Gabon. Born on April 4, 1986, she studied fashion marketing at the Illinois Institute of Art and currently works as “a hell of a salesperson [who] can talk anyone into anything” in one of the top retail boutiques in Chicago. The self-proclaimed “denim expert” hopes to open her own clothing store. After work, she spends her time working out at the gym, perhaps practicing yoga or kickboxing.
Kelly considers herself a leader by nature, strongly believing that there’s always a reward at the end of everything, which motivates her to work hard. Friends call the former cheerleader adventurous and ambitious. She loves the outdoors, often into hiking and canoeing, and thinks she’s fit enough for Survivor. She also thinks her leadership skills will get her through the competition.
