Donna Van Treese is a competitor on UltimateGambit's Survivor fan fiction series Survivor: Japan - Civil War.


Name (age): Donna Van Treese, 49

Current Residence: Fargo, North Dakota

Occupation: Stay-at-home mom

Personal Claim to Fame: Being the proud mother of seven children and still being married to my husband after 20 years.

Inspiration in Life: My mom.

Hobbies: Spending time with my family, blogging, watching football, reading, and playing with my two dogs.

Pet Peeves: Drunk people, laziness, dishonesty, and general lack of character.

3 Words to Describe You: Authoritative, wise, and dedicated.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? My Bible, the Book of Mormon, both for religious reasons, obviously, and a hairbrush so I don't accidentally get dreadlocks.

SURVIVOR contestant you are most like: Dawn Meehan. (On South Pacific, not Caramoan.)

Reason for being on SURVIVOR: I've wanted to play this game for a while, and the money certainly doesn't hurt.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I'm honest with people, and I know how to lead a group.

As the leader of a Mormon choir and the mother of seven children, Donna knows how to lead people. She hopes that her leadership skills will help her tribe dominate early to gain a numbers advantage at the merge, and intends to pilot an alliance to the end. With the money, she hopes to pay for the college tuition of her children.
