    Courtney: Exile Island




    From the official site:
    Courtney Marit was born in Washington, D.C. An avid gymnast, she reached elite level, was nationally ranked and eventually received a gymnastics scholarship from the University of Georgia, where she was part of the 1993 NCAA Championship team.

    Marit is currently a performance artist, working with others to collaborate and create theatrical shows that include music, fire, trapeze, stilts and a myriad of circus arts. She is founder of Revolve Productions, a company that has brought together musicians, disc jockeys, designers and performers dedicated to creating one-of-a-kind events. She also teaches fire dancing with the intention of celebrating this ancient art form as a tool of self-expression, meditation and fun. Additionally, she is working on her first screenplay and focusing on creating film and documentaries that promote world unity.

    Having traveled to over 30 countries around the globe, Marit previously worked as a deckhand/cook and helped deliver luxury yachts across the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. She also worked as a massage therapist, ski instructor, snow maker, farmer, elder caregiver, trailblazer, biking/hiking guide and importer.

    Marit's many adventures include climbing mountain peaks in the Cordilla Blanca of Peru, skiing the mountains of Alaska, running a marathon in Honolulu, performing throughout Europe, living in caves in India, surfing in Costa Rica, hitchhiking through Mexico and walking the deserts of Chile. Marit wants to have the experience of a lifetime and lives for adventure and knowledge. Learning about other countries and cultures is her passion. She enjoys celebrating life and the world she lives in.

    Marit describes herself as free spirited, creative, fun, sensitive and compassionate. She enjoys being part of an artistic community that integrates music, creation, dance and travel.

    Marit is currently single and living in Los Angeles. Her birth date is May 24, 1974.

    She's the first female of the group that's caught my eye as a possible favorite.
    With all the various things she's managed to pack into her life so far, hopefully it'll give her a good shot both physically and with the tribemate relations. (besides, she just seems like somebody that I'd like to hang out with so it's a lot easier to root for her)

    On the Early Show this morning, she was the only one who came across to me as a real ditz. (Of course, not all 16 had mini-confessionals.) I think she'll be gone early.

    You go Aunt Sandy!

    So, by the looks of her hair.. I'd say they took these pictures after sleeping on the ground for 39 days, right?

    I'm not liking this girl... I also don't see her going too far. Sorry libs.

    This is the one that absolutely SLAYS me with her "enjoys celebrating life".

    I wonder if her past as a "snow maker" involved working in one of those roadside snow-cone shops? (and that, people, is meant to be snarky, before anyone starts giving me lectures on snow-making)

    Perhaps she's trying to lure birds to lay eggs on her head that she can use for nourishment.

    Now those are freckles.

    My eyes deceive, I first saw Aunt Sandy's shoes as being among her favorite scents.

    She wants to promote world unity? Not a good sign for a survivor.

    The Economist seemed like an interesting choice for favorite magazine to me for a performance artist.

    Kids, this is what happens when you brush your hair with firecrackers.
