Zelda Selznick is a contestant from Survivor: Terra Nova.


Zelda has lived her entire life in Buffalo, New York. The daughter of a police officer and stay at home mom, Zelda was very popular with her peers growing up. Zelda has always been very ambitious having opened her own hair salon at the age of twenty-five.

Zelda married her high school sweetheart but their relationship did not last and they got divorced after three years of marriage. She currently single and lives alone in Buffalo, New York.

Zelda cites her ability to get along with and empathize with others as the reason why she will win Survivor.

Zelda’s reason for being on Survivor is:

I am a huge fan of the show and I am sick of playing Monday morning quarterback while watching the show. Instead of watching other people on television and saying how I would play differently, I am going to be in the actual game and I am going to have to make on the spot decisions that are either going to help or hurt me. To me that is going to be thrilling.
