Ashley Underwood, 26, Benton, Maine, joins the cast of Survivor 22: Redemption Island. She is a nurse by training, grew up in a strawberry farm, models part time, and represented Maine in the last Miss USA pageant. She is also an accomplished basketball player who received received a full-ride basketball scholarship to the University of Maine. On her Model Mayhem profile, Underwood wrote
I am motivated, dedicated, hard working, and passionate! I am 24 years old and after playing professional basketball overseas in Switzerland, I am now a registered nurse and model 🙂
She listed her mom as her inspiration on her Survivor profile writing
She raised four kids while managing two businesses and has always been the perfect example of the most devoted wife and doting mother.
She survived the first cut in last night’s episode and I suspect we’ll see her stay around for quite a bit longer.
