    Christy Smith - Survivor 6 Contestant

    [IMG]images/user/s6_christy_smith.jpg[/IMG]
    Name: Christy Smith
    Age: 24
    Marital Status: Married (NOTE: This is WRONG)
    Occupation: Children Adventure Guide for the Deaf

    Christy Smith attended high school and college in Washington, D.C., where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology/criminology from Gallaudet University. She most recently worked as a children's adventure guide for the Aspen Camp School for the Deaf. Previous to that, she worked as a facilitator at Hemlock Overlook in Virginia.

    Smith is deaf (she can hear minimal sounds but relies on lip-reading skills). Her primary motives for being on SURVIVOR are to promote awareness for the deaf…and win $1 million. Her favorite hobbies are socializing, doing anything outdoors and writing letters. She has traveled to Costa Rica and spent 50 days on a wilderness adventure trip in Alaska with Outward Bound. She describes herself as succulent, independent and goal-oriented. She is most proud of the time she has spent working with juvenile delinquents where she taught them how to work in groups to develop growth and self esteem.

    Smith is currently single and resides in Basalt, Colo. Her birth date is September 13, 1978.

    NEWS FLASH: Christy is hearing-impaired. Should make for an interesting contestant.

    I'm not 100% positive on any of them except the first one. I'd be tempted to say the police one isn't right (the 2nd post), but it's the information dug up on Sucks.

    The first ine and the second one are definitely two different people.
    The others might be the same as the first person though.

    It's entirely possible that there is more than one Christy Smith, I wouldn't think it's a particularly rare name so a lot of this information might be inaccurate at it isn't from CBS themselves.

    I'll delete the second one, and we'll assume it's not her. The rest all look like her, and the report is that there's a hearing-impaired person on this show, and the other pictures of Christy are from a hearing-impaired school, so I'd assume they're pretty accurate.

    The other three do look like he same person to me.
    The now second shot is taken from a different angle so it's a little hard to compare, but the features do look similar.

    The addition of a hearing impaired person should prove very interesting.
    I wonder how severe her impairment is.
    Hopefully it won't put her at any disadvantage during chaellenges etc. and will make her team mates neither more or less inclined to boot her.

    That's really interesting. Being hearing impaired (though not deaf) myself, I'd always wondered how someone like myself would fare on Survivor.

    I wonder if they will have someone translate for her in ASL, or if she wears hearing aids. Hearing aids could be a problem in any swimming challenges, though.
