    Well, there are two likely possibilities:

    She signs and therefore they will probably provide an interpreter for her (would that person live with the tribe? sleep there? participate in challenges?)

    Or she lip reads which means she will have to be close and facing anyone speaking to her. On the other hand it would be good for seeing what people on the other side of camp are talking about!

    Hmmmm, this is very interesting and I can't wait to see how it plays out. One thing I know - my mom is deaf and they are stubborn, tenacious people! Something that could work to Christy's advantage if she posesses these traits.

    The Amazon will be a tough place to be the first contestant with these challenges, but I hope she does well.

    I can't see them providing an interpreter for her.
    I would imagine she can lip-read, plus we aren't sure exactly the nature of her impairment, she might be able to hear as well as is necessary for the show.

    I don't expect her to be a crusader for the hearing impaired, but it would be great if she can show that her personal challenges have in no way impeded her chances in the game.

    She's very cute I think, and has a nice smile.
    Perhaps they will provide an interpreter at the challenges at least?

    I don't expect a hearing impairment would hinder her at all. In some instances, it might even be an advantage (Helen's recipes, for example).

    Ok, the latest word on Christy:

    That picture of her looking like she's taking a dive is from her work, where she's on staff at the Aspen Camp School for the Deaf.

    She apparently is not completely deaf, and can hear a little with the help of hearing devices. She can also read lips quite well.

    Christy's profile has been updated with official CBS info.

    THey say she's married, and then later say she's single, and they spelled her name wrong on the photo caption. Great preparation.
