Ciandre "CeCe" Taylor from "Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen. X" (2016) is one of the contestants in Season 33 of the CBS reality competition series. She starts out on the Takali (Generation X) tribe. She is an insurance adjuster from Granada Hills, California.

Here is an interview with Ciandre "CeCe" Taylor:

Three words to describe you: Outgoing, strong-minded, and goal setter.

Hobbies: Writing, hiking and working out, and watching reality shows.

Pet peeves: People who can't drive in traffic and people who cough and sneeze without covering their mouths.

What does it mean to be a Gen-Xer? Wow, just thinking about my history, childhood, and past brings me to tears, but also makes me smile. I came from a generation of fighters. The foundation of my family was built on strong women. Yes, my great grandparents, grandparents, and parents were married but, unfortunately, they didn't stay married. During that time, raising children as a single parent was be extremely hard, but the strength the women of my family showed — their will to never give up, their triumph over sweat and tears — shaped me into the woman I am today.

We are strong and most of the women I grew up with also demonstrate that same strength and willpower. Nothing was handed to us. We worked hard and, if we failed, we tried again. That's the overall mindset of a Gen-Xer. Never let your failures keep you down. You only stay a failure if you don't get back up and try again.

Personal claim to fame: Overcoming adversity and striving to be the best mother I can be to my children by supporting and pushing them to achieve their goals and dreams while, at the same time, still pushing to achieve my own goals and dreams.

Inspiration in life: My grandmother, Eleanor, because she's a lover, a giver, and she always gives her very last to help anyone, especially her family. Her home is always open and she's always spreading love through her cooking. If you're hungry, you can always sit down and enjoy a meal at my grandmother's house. She's one of my biggest supporters.

If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? The Bible, which was a gift from my grandfather and I read it daily, and a photograph of my children because they're the strength that keep me going.

Contestant you're most like: A combination of Spencer Bledsoe (Cagayan, Cambodia) and Tasha Fox (Cagayan, Cambodia). Both got far in the game, both are very strategic, and adaptive.

Reason for being on the show: A better life for my family. I'm tired of struggling and living check-to-check, or waiting for pay day to buy groceries. I'm tired of living off of my credit card and I love the game. Being on this show is the biggest accomplishment of my life.

Why do you think you'll "survive"? I overcame so much adversity in my life. I moved across the country with my children just to provide a better life and opportunity for them. My mind is set to never give up and to keep striving for what I want, so this will be the ultimate goal in my life.
