Andrea Hilderbrand: Outlast Contestant is Balancing Both Work and Family Today

One of the most talked-about survival series is Netflix’s ‘Outlast.‘ The competitors are placed in a remote environment in Alaska where they must find ways to survive, making it one of the riskiest reality shows. The winner is the last group standing or the first to survive and cross the finish line. There are no eliminations, and competitors can quit the game anytime or switch sides. Andrea Hilderbrand started her journey at ‘Outlast’ as a team member of Charlie Camp alongside Angie, Nick, and Seth. Well, let’s dive in and find out everything there is about Andrea, shall we?

Who is Andrea Hilderbrand?

Andrea Hilderbrand is a super fit 51-year-old woman residing in Charlotte, North Carolina. She is originally from Troy, North Carolina, and belongs to a loving family.

Andrea loves participating in CrossFit competitions, and she secured the 16th position worldwide in 2017 under the Women (45-49) category. She revealed her motivation and motto in an interview with Live Active Charlotte.

Andrea said, “JUST DO IT! Don’t be scared to try new things. Change and placing yourself in uncomfortable positions may be scary at first, but it’s the only way we grow and realize our true potential. Just remember that there is no harm in trying to better oneself and that you will always have support along the way.” Andrea attended Pfeiffer University, receiving her Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) in Mathematics. The incredibly smart survivalist also earned her Master’s degree in Master’s degree Industrial Engineering / Engineering Management from the University of South Florida.

Where is Andrea Hilderbrand Now?

Though it is certain that had Andrea not fallen so miserably sick during the first few episodes, she would’ve gone all the way.

In 2007 Andrea joined ESPN as a Stage Manager and remained in the company for over seven years.

The Engineer truly has it all when juggling her work, family, and love for the outdoors. She loves to challenge herself every day by going for a run or simply hiking to the tallest peaks. Andrea’s current romantic partner, Phillip ‘Rudy’ Rudisill, has also accompanied the reality TV star on more than one occasion in terms of hiking.
