Paloma Soto-Castillo was born in Chile and resides in California. She's a student.
She's also a contestant on Survivor: Gabon. Here's what Jeff Probst had to say about her prospects on the show:
''Paloma is sassy, cute. My question for her is 'Is her attitude real, or is it a put on?' And if it is a put-on, how long will she be able to sustain it when she starts getting hungry? Paloma's going to have to pick the right alliance. Who you decide to team up with early on has such an impact on how you do in the game, because if you pick the wrong people, it can be hard to get out from under that.''
