Esther Ryan is a contestant from Survivor: Dominican Republic.

Profile

Name: Esther Ryan

Esther was born and raised Ogden, Kansas. Esther attended Kansas State University; she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education. Upon graduating for college, Esther got a job as a High School English Teacher.

After working as a teacher for five years, Esther decided to return to school in order to get a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration. A few years after getting her Master’s Degree, Esther became the principal of the high school that she was working at. Esther was a Principal for twenty years, retiring last year.

Esther believes that her years as an educator and Principal will help her deal with the other contestants because she is used to dealing with a wide range of personalities.

Esther lives in Junction City, Kansas with her husband Arthur. She and her husband have one son Kyle. They are also proud grandparents of Kyle’s three children.

Esther’s reason for wanting to be on Survivor is:

I truly want to be on this show for the experience. I know that is a very cliché thing to say and when most people say it; they do not actually mean it. However, I do actually mean it.

I mean think about how amazing it is, to journey to another country and have a chance to meet new people. Now do not get me wrong, the money is also a motivating factor but the experience is much more of a factor than the money.

–Esther
