USA Network’s new reality competition show Snake in the Grass features reality show alums competing for a $100,000 prize, and it’s time to share information about one of the players, legendary Survivor castaway, Cirie Fields. She will be competing against fellow Survivor players, as well as contestants from Big Brother and Naked and Afraid of Love. It’s been almost five years since fans have watched Cirie on their screens, and they’re excited to see see what she brings to this new show.
The Snake in the Grass series features eight episodes, where teams of four compete in intense physical challenges. However, they must also try to figure out which member of their team is a saboteur. It’s hosted by radio personality and Dancing with the Stars winner, Bobby Bones. Now, it’s time to take a look at one of this season’s players, Cirie.
Cirie was born on July 18, 1970 in Jersey City, New Jersey. She currently lives in Norwalk, Connecticut with her husband, Clarencio “H.B.” Hacker. They share three children: John, Jamil, and Jared. While she was on Survivor, Jared and H.B. surprised Cirie during the family visit. Cirie is a Cancer, which means that her family and friends are very important to her, and she will go to great lengths to defend her relationships. This proved true during her four Survivor seasons, because she’s known to be one of the greatest social players of all time.
Currently, Cirie works as an operating room nurse and clinical coordinator at Norwalk Hospital Surgical Center. She attended St. Francis Nursing School in New Castle, Pennsylvania, where she earned a nursing degree. Aside from nursing, Cirie has also worked as a surgical instrumentalist, home care provider, candy factory worker, and telemarketer. Cirie, who’s often cited as one of the most-robbed contestants on Survivor, stays active in the Survivor community by doing Cameos and appearances at watch parties.
Cirie finished in fourth place on her first appearance on Survivor: Panama. Two years later, she was a part of the infamous “Black Widow Brigade” on Survivor: Micronesia, and placed third. Many fans believe that she would’ve won that season if it was a final three instead of a final two. Pre-merge, she was voted off in Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains, because she was too big of a threat. Her last Survivor appearance was in Game Changers, where, during a memorable Tribal Council, she was voted out by default at the final six. Cirie is widely considered to be one of the greatest Survivor players of all time because of her social tact and resilience. Host Jeff Probst believes that she’s an inspiration, as he thinks of her as a woman who got off the couch in order to take part in fierce Survivor competition. Hopefully, Cirie will do just as well on Snake in the Grass.
Snake in the Grass premieres August 1 at 11 p.m. ET on USA Network.
