Christina Daniels,
Assistant Producer

Name: Christina Daniels

Age: 34

Job: Assistant Producer

Luxury item: A HUGE sarong - a somewhat disregarded yet highly functional and versatile item for the jungle I think, alternatively to be used as: A blanket, a rug, a scarf, a coat, a dress, and most importantly, as a mobile changing room... Also my MP3 player for sanity and a good book for escape. That's three luxury items, is that allowed?

Phobia: Waking up to find snakes in my shoes.

Will miss: Walks with Stephen in the countryside on a crisp autumn afternoon, and a good Thai curry.

Looking forward to: Being and working in the Amazon...a lifelong dream.

Dreading: Bugs! And the occasional dissatisfied hankering after chocolate.

Still, we persevered. We were determined to dance.
