    I'm glad I wasn't the only person thinking that.... I'm sure her male 8th grade students loved that!

    I also agree that alot...I know several people...in Atlanta weren't born there....and my post wasn't intended to make fun of either...just NBC for perhaps altering folks bios....to give an incorrect impression.....
    There are 12 talent agencies here; there are also several film studios. And that's just what is in the yellow pages. She could work for any of them.I just don't think it's in the producers best interest to change the contestant's bios to the extent of lying about their hometowns.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Queen Ty for the information about Atlanta talent agencies....However, her resume ...see link above lists a ton of tv shows...she did extra casting for most filmed in LA...

    NBC also has a hugely bad track record about lying about contestants home towns in Average Zoe...including making Tareq from Zimbabwe...even though his own web site and bio mentioned he was born In New York City...perhaps one of his parents was born there...but he wasn't....

    in reading the above posts it appears that summer did go to college in Georgia...which gives her a recent tie to the region...in this case it seems they only bent the truth....don't tell me reality tv doesn't do that frequently.....

    Tareq... isn't he only 21? I always wondered how is it possible for 21 year old to be a college professor. Maybe they meant college student but somehow the word professor slipped in there.

    Tareq, perhaps, was a teaching assistant. Who went all "Omarosa" on his resume and eggagerated.

    Maybe he could be a teaching assistant in elementary school or even highschool but I highly doubt that a 21 year old is an assistant in college.
    I just wonder who bruced up his resume. Was it him OR NBC who seem to like to mislead people as much as they can.

    I'm so glad she got kicked off, she annoyed me from the first few minutes she appeared on screen.
