Name: Ceejae Gardiner
Where do you currently live?: Carbondale, IL
Current occupation: College Student
Describe some of your favorite activities.: I enjoy playing quidditch, shopping for sneakers, and winning.
How would close friends and family describe you?: Loud, blunt, obnoxious.
Name a few fun facts about yourself no one would guess just by looking at you.: No matter how exhausted I am, I refuse to take a nap.
I suffer from chronic lateness.
Ancient Greece has been and always will be my favorite subject to research for fun.
Do you have a favorite quote?: "..it is sweet to look upon the light..." -Euripides
My classics professor would often repeat this in class and it stuck with me.
What is your strategy going into the game?: At the start of round one, I want to create an alliance from round one made up of newbies to avoid being picked off one by one. I intend to focus on strategic gameplay more than a social or physical game, planning out moves to help my game in the long run.
Which past Sequester player did you like the most and why?: I've only seen The Black Hat, and I love cheering for an underdog so my favorite player would have to be Jamie Leigh. She managed to continually fight week after week while in the minority, proving to be both a physical and strategic threat.
What would you say your biggest weakness is in a game like Sequester?: My biggest weakness would be that I can come off as aggressive despite having good intentions. I have to allow people to realize things on their own instead of trying to force it, otherwise, that could be my demise.
What type of person is your biggest threat in a game like Sequester?: Ringleaders. I don't give off a follower vibe, so if one person is gathering minions, I likely would not be apart of that. That isolation cuts off a portion of my social game, making it harder for me to gain numbers to support moves as the game progresses.
What type of personalities would you describe as opposite of yours?: Idiots.
What do you think is the most common mistake that people make in a game like this?: Despite how frequently trusting too much tanks someone's game, it continues to happen. When players start to feel comfortable and let their guard down, other's use this weakness to their advantage. Typically the moment a player feels completely safe, they go home.
If you win Sequester what do you predict the final vote count to be?: I believe I'll win by a single vote. Although I fully intend to try and sway every vote in my favor, I believe that only one vote will separate second place from my $2,500.
