Two-time 'Survivor' winner appears at Fort Bragg

Posted July 29, 2010

— Two-time "Survivor" winner Sandra Diaz-Twine was at Fort Bragg on Thursday to host a special ceremony for the 10th anniversary of the South Post Commissary.

Diaz-Twine, 35, of Fayetteville, won her first $1 million in the seventh season of "Survivor: Pearl Islands" and recently outplayed, outwitted and outlasted an all-star group on "Survivor: Heroes and Villains" to win her second million.

“The first time around, it was a really good experience," she said. "The second time around, it was really hard from the first day because everyone was there for a reason."

She said her favorite thing about the game is what happens after the show – meeting people and working with charities.

“For strangers to know me and write to me, it's crazy," Diaz-Twine said. "I never thought I’d be in the limelight.”

Before "Survivor," Diaz-was a senior office associate with the U.S. Army and U.S. Air force Exchange Service and was also a chemical repair specialist with the Army.

Her husband is a Fort Bragg Soldier.

    I am thoroughly disgusted and disappointed in every person invovled in broadcasting during the National Anthem! Shame on you!

    She's my fave too. She out witted everyone. And she has a great sense of humor. It was fun watching her play all the 'players' last season.
