Lindsay Phenix The Wheel

Lindsay Phenix from "The Wheel" is one of the contestants in the Discovery Channel reality survivalist competition series. She is a fitness model and massage therapist from Los Angeles, California.

Born into a military family, Lindsay Phenix — who is half Latina and half Cajun — caught the travel bug at a young age. She has lived in six different countries and traveled to fifty more, all thanks to her modeling career. However, she's not just another pretty face. Lindsay is an Ironman triathlete, avid hiker and excellent fisherman, and she grew up hunting and preparing animals for food. She credits most of her survival skills to her "doomsday prepper" father, but, aside from her dad, Lindsay claims that her driving force in life is her grandfather, who just passed away in May. He always called her fearless and instilled in her a never-give-up attitude. It's the sort of encouragement she needed in life since people tend not to take models seriously. Always underestimated, Lindsay knows she's got what it takes to conquer "The Wheel."


As a model, Lindsay often finds it hard to be taken seriously. With a cache of survival skills that most people do not know about, she wants to prove that she and other women in her field can be smart and tough. She also wants to honor her grandfather, who passed away in May.

• Grew up hunting with her father. Experienced with firearms, knives and butchering animals.
