If you’re a fan of Survivor, then you are already familiar with Brenda Lowe. The former Miami Dolphins cheerleader and actor became a fan favourite appearing in two seasons of the show: Survivor: Nicaragua (2010) and Survivor: Caramoan (2012). Last year, she appeared in the film adaptation of Baywatch.
Fluent in Spanish, with Bolivian-Chinese heritage, Lowe also appeared in the hit Hispanic TV series, ¿Qué Dice la Gente?
Taking her love of beaches and oceans into the business world, Lowe founded Paddleboard Miami in 2009. She built the company to develop the paddleboarding community around South Florida. She moved on from the firm some time ago to focus on her acting career and family.
Lowe is appearing at the Vancouver International Boat Show in Q&A sessions to discuss everything from the reality of reality TV to doing yoga on your paddleboard. Seriously, she provided photographic proof.

“I’m excited to be coming up there where it’s a bit colder, because sometimes you need to be reminded that there is winter,” said Lowe. “Growing up almost my entire life in Miami, it’s always sunny, hot and bright.”
That climate and lifestyle prepared the former beauty-pageant winner for both of the location shoots for Survivor. As viewers may have noticed, the show is dedicated to tropical destinations rather than the tundra. Perhaps bathing wear being appropriate attire for such settings has some bearing on this.
I’m sure we’d all watch if the contestants were wrapped up in Canada Goose gear and Sorels right?
“It was a really fun adventure, for sure, and let me tell you that 100 per cent of it is real,” she said. “We don’t get food and hotel rooms off-camera or get told what to say. It’s all raw and the strategy is constant and it’s tough. I have the scars all over my legs and body to prove it and they will stay with me for life.”
