Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAN DIEGO - Feb 21, 2017 - How will p’s and q’s survive in the unpredictable jungle? Elaine Swann, America’s Leading Lifestyle & Etiquette Expert and author of “Let Crazy Be Crazy,” has taken her expertise to the small screen on FOX’s survival competition reality show “Kicking & Screaming” starting Thursday, March 9th at 9 P.M. Pacific.
“I was taken aback by the challenge because it was something I would never consider doing by choice. I enjoy luxury, being pampered, and everything girly.” Swann says after getting the call.
Kicking & Screaming is a new competition series hosted by New Girl’s Hannah Simone that puts together “10 expert survivalists with pampered partners to face the toughest challenges of their lives” (FOX). These professional survivalists have no problem fending for themselves, but audiences will be able to find out if they’re prepared to help their “nature-phobic partners.” The survivalists might need to drag their partners kicking and screaming in order to win a cash prize of $500,000.
“One of the things I recognize in life, and I share this with others in my training,” Swann stated was her mantra throughout the competition, “In order for us to grow, sometimes we have to put ourselves in an uncomfortable situation and challenge ourselves to do things we wouldn’t normally do in order to achieve success.”
Swann’s challenge began years before her jungle expedition. She was casted after FOX producers saw her media appearance videos on her website. Elaine Swann is known to the media as America’s Leading Lifestyle and Etiquette Expert and has been asked to appear on several major networks and media outlets. What is unknown is how she singlehandedly got herself booked on all these outlets without the help of an assistant, manager, or publicist. She challenged her introverted self to reach out to the media to get herself on television and has now created an “Elite Expert TV Guest” program to teach others how to become an expert TV guest. She was enlisted as one of this year’s guest instructors to talk about this topic on a national five-city tour that includes workshops for all business professionals. Information about the program and tour can be found on her official website www.ElaineSwann.com.
Swann was so terrified going into the competition that she broke down in tears and wondered why she would put herself through something so difficult. She was the type of person that needed the thermostat to be at the right temperature, but was leaving that life behind to try to survive in a jungle. She eventually accepted the challenge and left for Fiji with her most powerful survival tool,
“I recognized how powerful your mind is, so I told myself I have to go there with the mindset of winning, that there was no other choice,” Swann told herself, “Losing and going home was never an option for me. I was going to strive for that and nothing less because that’s how I live my life and what I share with people.”
Starting Thursday, March 9th at 9 PM PST on FOX, tune in to watch if Elaine Swann does overcome the unpredictable challenges of jungle life or ends up kicking and screaming the whole time.
