Vanetta Elizabeth Smith
Los Angeles, California
|Endurance 3: Hawaii, 5th place|
A "people person" with energy to burn, Vanetta is ready to tackle Endurance the way she takes on school, sports and the performing arts. Pressure and criticism may be tough to take, but she's up for it.
At fourteen years old, Vanetta was one of twenty new teens selected to be a part of the third season of Endurance.
Vanetta was one of six people to eliminated in the Right to Stay challenge. Those six contestants were given a second chance to be part of the game as an official Endurance player. They had to compete in a game called Headstrong. Vanetta placed third in this game, being the last girl to be eliminated. When Tom won the challenge, he picked her as a partner because she was the last girl in the competition. Later in the game, she fell when she was walking out of a hut, and seriously cut her leg. She had to be taken out of the jungle to get stitches in her leg, eliminating her from the game.
- "I can't." (When it comes to Right to Stay competitions).
Vanetta seems to be taking up an acting career, as she appeared in the 2007 movie Freedom Writers. She graduated from Burroughs High School n 2007, and went on to attend California State University, Los Angeles.
- Only contestant who had to leave the competition due to an injury.
