— bio
Vanetta Smith is a former contestant on Endurance 3: Hawaii. She competed alongside her partner, Tom Maden as the Brown Team.


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.
