Hegarty was said to be the weakest member of her tribe but she proved everyone wrong. Trish knew how to build bonds with other survivors and how to play politics while trying to survive. It’s true that Trish looked skinny and weaker at first glance but she had inner strength.
When the quest to survive longer started, Trish proved that she won’t need the help of anybody and she can get her food and water by herself. By seeing her intense labour on the show, many fans even suggested that she was a man. Which, of course, is totally wrong.
But wild is a harsh place and when you are grown up in this modern world, living on a distant island can be hard. Even though Hegarty knew her stuff but after all, she was a human of the 21st century, just like us. And Trish had to face some difficulties.
Finding food and water on a distant island is very different from shopping in a mart. There were days when survivors had to stay hungry because they couldn’t find food or if found, not enough. In all this surviving, Trish lost weight as well.
How much Weight did Trish Lose on the Island?
Under the tribe name, Brawn, Hegarty participated in Survivor season 28. Within 39 days that Trish spent on the Island, she lost 10 Pounds. This is a very surprising figure as compared to other contestants who lose weight up to 89 pounds.
Trish would always have full energy and she also had interesting techniques for surviving in the wild. No wonder fans thought of her as a man. Replying to this hilarious question Hegarty said, “I was raised with four brothers who were great hockey players. That’s how I got some of this man thing”. Trish found the question funny and replied laughingly.
Although fans love her Trish never returned to the show after the Cagayan season. As of now, Hegarty lives with her lovely daughters and is all healthy and well.
