The spouse of a Desert Lightning Team member is hoping to be selected as a contestant on the hit reality TV game show, “Survivor.”

Luella Moore, wife of Tech. Sgt. Benjamin Moore, 41st Electronic Component Squadron, has submitted her application via the show’s website.

Applicants must include recent pictures of themselves and a video describing their personality strengths and abilities and life experiences that can help them win.

Producers will contact them by email if chosen to move forward in the casting process.

“Survivor” is a reality game show where 16-20 contenders are isolated in a typically tropical wilderness location and compete for cash and prizes. Split into tribes, the castaways must survive the elements, construct shelters, build fires, look for water, and scavenge for food and other supplies for the entire filming period, which is around 40 days. Throughout the game, they compete in a wide variety of physical and mental challenges for rewards, immunity, or both.

“The challenge and competitiveness of the show is what really makes me want to do it,” said Luella. “I’m very competitive and have to rein it back sometimes, so I think I’ll be able to let it all out if I get on the show.”

As a self-proclaimed “die-hard” fan of the show, Luella had hesitated applying to the show throughout her more than 10 years of watching the show because, until recently, she was overweight.

“My drive for losing weight was the desire for a healthier lifestyle and a longer life, disease prevention, and being able to do things with my family,” Luella said.

Luella Moore, wife of Tech. Sgt. Benjamin Moore, 41st Electronic Component Squadron, poses with her daughter in a photo before her change to a more health-conscious lifestyle. After losing weight, Luella decided to apply to be a cast member of the reality TV game show, “Survivor,” that she has been a fan of for more than 10 years.

Now living and teaching a healthy lifestyle, Luella works as a weight loss and motivational coach, certified personal trainer, certified group fitness instructor and nutrition specialist.

She believes that her fitness and competitiveness would be great for getting on and winning the show.

Her husband, also a “Survivor” fan, supports her decision to try to get on the show.

“I’m very excited and nervous for her,” said Sergeant Moore. “Whether she gets on the show or not, I’m glad she won’t have to live the rest of her life regretting that she never tried.”
