Have you ever watched CBS’s hit show, Survivor? It’s famous for being both incredibly challenging and highly entertaining.
In this reality show, participants are carefully selected and then whisked away to remote and wild locations around the world, where they must fend for themselves for an extended period.
The unique twist in Survivor is that participants are gradually voted out by their fellow contestants until only one person remains standing, earning them the coveted title of “Sole Survivor.” Now, that’s pretty cool!
One such Survivor is Kass McQuillen, who, while she hasn’t won a season yet, has proven herself to be a true survivor. She’s participated in two seasons of the show: Cagayan and Cambodia.
Survivor is no walk in the park. Contestants not only have to navigate the challenges of the wilderness but also build and maintain alliances with their fellow castaways. The grueling conditions and demanding tasks take a toll on their health and well-being.
In Kass McQuillen’s case, her determination to stay in the game led to significant weight loss. In the following sections, we’ll delve into the details of her remarkable journey and the transformations she underwent while striving to survive in the wild.

Kass McQuillen’s Weight Loss
In her first season on the show, Cagayan, McQuillen didn’t have much experience. Because of this, she was also having a tough time dealing with the politics of the show. Now, being alone on Survivor is not a good thing.
Kass had to find shelter for her. She also had to gather food and water for her survivor. Which isn’t an easy job in the wild.
As survivors aren’t allowed to bring anything except necessary tools with them so they have to make arrangements for their food through whatever they find on the island.
Kass, while doing all this intense labor, started losing weight very quickly. Fans were worried about the worsening condition of Kass’ health.
However, the good thing is that she got control over herself and remained in good shape for the rest of the season.
During her time on Survivor, Kass faced some serious challenges. She lost a staggering 30 pounds while battling the elements and her fellow competitors. Despite her incredible journey, Kass ultimately finished in the third position.
Kass’ Comments about the Season
When she was asked by the interviewer about her hardships on the island, McQuillen replied, “I’m not a goal. I’m just hated. People come down on me, especially the women. But I’m just going to argue to the women that I came out here and I played like a man”.
She concluded, “And you can’t fault me for that”. It is true that Kass had to deal with a hard time in the show, nevertheless, she overcame it.
Nature is a beautiful thing and there is no doubt about it. However, it can be lethal sometimes. Especially when an inexperienced person is met with it.
Kass was a well-trained survivor. Besides, she would immediately receive help from the cast of the show would there had been any mishaps. So, go camping but be prepared for everything.
