Last summer, mother-daughter duo Missy Payne and Baylor Wilson joined the 18 castaways on “Survivor: San Juan del Sur” and made it all the way to the dramatic finale. On the show, Payne was called a “wicked stepmother” and accused of being demanding and entitled.
It’s all part of the game. But what are these Preston Hollow residents like in real life?
Payne, a former cheer coach at several neighborhood schools, runs a nonprofit organization called Cheer 4 Your Life, raising funds to provide financial assistance to students who want to participate in extra-curricular activities. She also hosts a survival skills class for kids. And, every kid who receives support from Cheer 4 Your Life is required to spend time serving other children in need.
Wilson is a singer-songwriter with a self-titled EP.
This week, you can meet them both during an event 6:30-8:30 p.m. Jan. 16 at St. Bernard Sports in the Shops at Park Lane. They’ll answer questions about their time on “Survivor,” and Wilson will perform songs from her EP. Plus, 15 percent of proceeds from anything you buy in the store will go toward Cheer 4 Your Life.
