Ashley Underwood: Survivor Redemption Island Bombshell
Ashley Underwood has attracted media attention recently as the blonde bombshell on popular reality show, Survivor (Survivor: Redemption Island). She was featured on Sports Illustrated recently as Lovely Lady of the Day, both for her beauty and athletic physique. But despite her great looks, Underwood has more to her than just beauty.
The 26-year-old is multi-talented, having received a full scholarship to the University of Maine, where she received her degree in nursing as well as a contract to play basketball in Switzerland! She then went on to compete in her first beauty pageant, where she won the title of Miss Maine 2009, and later competed in the Miss USA 2009 pageant.
Does Ashley Underwood have it in her to win big in Survivor 2011? This season of Survivor: Redemption Island (first airing February 16th on CBS) will be different, because contestants will have a shot at returning after having been voted off!
The former pageant queen stands tall at 5’8 and was working as a school nurse for K-12 schoolchildren before she was recruited for Survivor. So what does Ms. Underwood say about being a contestant on Survivor 2011? “I want to be the tough girl. I wanted whichever tribe I was on to view me as an asset, someone who would help in the challenges, even though I’m a woman, a young girl. I want them to know I’m a basketball player and that I know how to work hard. I wanted to be the strong, athletic girl and be seen as someone who could really help.”
