Since appearing on Survivor, she has been leading a semi-normal life. She did receive some hometown fame after appearing despite her placement. Qiana has also been promoted a few months after she return home.



  • Qiana, similar to Genette, was slated to be African-American (hence her name), but after changing Genette's ethnicity to Indian, and with the avatars created, I decided Qiana would be biracial instead.
