Joining the American version of the reality TV show Survivor during its second season was a step towards nationwide prominence for Elisabeth Hasselbeck. As a castaway contestant, she finished in fourth place. The viewing public got to know her well as she was on our screens for a while. It was hard not to be impressed by the way she handled herself in tough situations while managing to sway other contestants’ votes in her favor.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck was asked to rejoin the competition in its Survivor: All-Stars edition, but she declined. As if knowing she already had enough exposure to make it to the next level. This is quite remarkable if you consider how most of the other contestants of Survivor would gradually disappear from the public eye moving forward, virtually back to where they came from, a gentle slide back to obscurity. That said, Elisabeth would benefit greatly from the reality TV platform, using it to carve out a successful television career. She made it as the fourth co-host of The View, and also co-hosted on Fox & Friends for more than a decade. Then all of a sudden, in a move that seemed to clash with her outspoken nature, Elisabeth Hasselbeck quit the latter program in 2015. Read on to find out what made the popular TV personality decide to tuck away from the spotlight.
Well Educated Family
Elisabeth Hasselbeck was born in Cranston, Rhode Island, which is one of the best places to live in the United States. She comes from a well-educated family. Her mother is a school teacher who went back to school and is now a lawyer. Her father is an architect, and her brother is also a lawyer.
Elisabeth did well both in sports and academics. She attended Boston College and led their softball team to two consecutive Big East championships. With a B.F.A. added to her resume, she went on to work for Puma as a member of its design team.
