Jessie Camacho


WKI Magazine: Can you tell us about your experience on Survivor:

Jessie Camacho: Survivor was an amazing experience. It allowed me to be part of a culture that continues on now with Season 38, Edge of Extinction, airing on CBS. I was able to travel to Africa for the first time and play one of the best games around. After I was voted off, some of the players and I traveled around Africa and got to see it on a more personal level. This led me to want to stay and help somehow. I stayed in Africa for another month and a half and helped build a community project called Shompole. I was able to immerse myself into this beautiful place and work alongside a Maasai Tribe. To this day, Africa is still my favorite place to travel to. Since Survivor I've traveled back to Zambia , Botswana and South Africa .

WKI Magazine: What was it like to host the Descontrol show which you were on for eight years?
Jessie Camacho: I was fortunate to host one of the best music shows around when I started working on Descontrol which aired on Telemundo. The show started in Los Angeles and moved to Miami a few years after. This was a huge platform to interview many music celebrities from all genres. This led me to being one of the hosts of The Latin Billboards in Puerto Rico, Miami and the Regional Mexican Billboards in Los Angeles , but music has always been a big part of my career. I'm Latina ! What can I say, it runs in my blood.

WKI Magazine: Who did you interview while on Descontrol?
Jessie Camacho: I've interviewed a lot of music celebrities from salsa, reggaeton, bachata, regional mexican, pop, etc. I've had the pleasure to interview them early in their careers and they are now huge music celebrities. One of my favorite interviews was Marc Anthony. I interviewed him at the Latin Billboards in Puerto Rico . I've always been a huge fan so it felt surreal. He was very down to earth.

WKI Magazine: Tell us about your dreams?
Jessie Camacho: My dream is to continue to grow both in my personal life and career. I've been blessed to have really good people around me. I try not to take anything for granted.

WKI Magazine: Do you have any upcoming projects that you’re working on?
Jessie Camacho: I took a hiatus from my career to focus on my personal life. This year I wanted to get back to acting, which is something I'm very passionate about. So far it's been great. There is a wonderful project that is in the works, a lead role in a feature film called Four Levels but that's all I can say about it for now.
