Survivor: One World
In spite of being one of the quieter contestants of the season, Kim caught the attention of Alicia Rosa during the trek to the girl's camp because she posed as a strong player which forged her into Alicia's alliance along with Chelsea Meissner, Kat Edorsson, and Sabrina Thompson. Kim's levelheadedness was proven when she shunned gay Manono member Colton Cumbie with poise and composure, despite Cumbie's constant visits to their side of camp started to annoy her tribe and viewed his affinity for them as an act of sabotage. After the evacuation of tribemate Kourtney Moon, the alliance stood strong and eliminated Salani's oldest member, Nina Acosta. Kim, and the rest of the Salani tribe then prospered, winning three consecutive challenges, and received free immunity when the Manono tribe decided to go to Tribal Council after winning the Day 11 Immunity Challenge.
Kim remained a Salani member after the Day 12 tribe switch, where she formed a secondary alliance with newcomers Jay Byars, Michael Jefferson, and Troyzan Robertson, where she found herself in the leadership position. Kim increased her power by obtaining a Hidden Immunity Idol, which she disclosed to her closest ally, Chelsea. The forged alliance, however, did not need to take action, as the new Salani demolished the new Manono in subsequent challenges, merging with them with a 7-5 discrepancy, but the original members (men and women) remained 6-6.
The two revisions of the tribes found Kim working with two pacts, the all-girl original Salani alliance (Alicia's regrouped alliance with former outsider Christina Cha being adopted to the group) and the new Salani alliance. After Kim manipulated Jay and Troyzan to oust Jonas Otsuji and cannibalize new Salani alliance member Michael, she eventually revealed her master plan—blindside Jay and Troyzan to pave the way for an all-girl endgame. The plan worked, and the men took the fall in subsequent Tribal Councils, though one of her longtime allies, Kat was disposed of by Kim after the latter's controversial choice of who to bring with her after winning a Reward Challenge. Throughout the merge, Kim collectively won four Immunity Challenges; and with a Hidden Immunity Idol in her possession, Kim was essentially invincible. Following her victory at the final two Immunity Challenges, and the eliminations of Alicia and Christina, Kim found herself in the final three with Chelsea and Sabrina. Kim's quiet yet destructive strategy earned the respect of seven of nine Jury members, crowning her the as 24th Sole Survivor.
At the live Reunion Show, Kim won an additional $100,000 for winning the Fan Favorite Award.
Kim married Bryan Wolfe over the weekend of March 16-17, 2013 in Mexico near the hotel she was staying. Her fellow Survivor tribemates, Alicia Rosa and Kat Edorsson attended as bridesmaids. About 1 month later Kim was arrested due to a case of mistaken identity. She spent 8 hours in jail, after going to change her name at the DMV, in San Antonio, when a staff member saw there was a warrant out for her arrest for check bouncing. However, after bailing herself out for $1,500, it turned out there was another person named Kimberly with the same birthday, and Kim is now working to get the situation cleared up. She later stated: "Be careful at the DMV, ya never know what's going to happen."  She is currently expecting her first child.
