    Tamara “Taj” Johnson-George - Survivor Tocantins

    Tamara “Taj” Johnson-George

    Age: 37
    Hometown: Nashville, Tenn.
    Occupation: Former Pop Star

    Tamara "Taj" Johnson-George already has a lot on her plate, but can't wait to add SURVIVOR contestant into the mix. A Grammy®-nominated singer, successful author, wife of a former NFL pro and mother of two wonderful boys, Taj believes she will be the "most underestimated player" in the game.

    A Grammy®-nominee for her soul group SWV ("Sisters With Voices"), Taj says "her group was the one to beat." Selling over six million records, her time as a singer has prepared her for the spotlight.

    In addition to her music career, Taj is also an accomplished writer. The author of “Player HateHER: How To Avoid The Beat Down And Live In A Drama Free World," she tries to practice what she preaches as her true pride and life’s focus lies within her family. The wife of Heisman Trophy winner and former Tennessee Titan running back Eddie George, she warns all opponents, "I'm not the average NFL wife and mother."

    Growing up in Brooklyn, Taj overcame both physical and mental abuse in her life. With her background, it's no wonder she says she's "naturally distrustful." Taj goes on to say "I am literally, truly a survivor, who has survived more things you can ever imagine." She is used to beating the odds and plans to do it again.

    In her free time, Taj says she is very physical and likes to workout, running, swimming and doing yoga and kickboxing. Taj is the total package built around strength and street smarts and will be a fierce competitor in this game.

    Taj currently resides in Nashville, Tenn. Her birth date is April 29.

    Wow, Eddie George's wife! Cool. I wonder if Eddie will come when they have the family visits if she makes it that far.

    She seems likeable--I'm don't know who Eddie George is, so that doesn't make me think one way ir the other. It's nice to see no reference to leadership, aggressiveness, bossiness, sexiness, etc. here.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Eddie George won the Heisman Trophy awarded to the top collegiate football player while playing at Ohio State. He went on to a successful career with the Tennessee Titans in the NFL.

    A small little thing I noticed: Ben and Taj are the same age, but he looks twice as older as she does.

    Wow......as soon as I saw the name I had to check and see if it was "that" Taj. I used to LOVE SWV. They were HUGE in the R&B world a while back. I ocassionally still pull out their Greatest hits cd and jam in my car-lol. I'm hoping she shines on Survivor.

    BTW...had no idea she had married Eddie George. They pretty much fell of the map once the group split. I know that one of the members is now a gospel singer, but seeing her is certainly a blast from my past!

    She has such a beautiful smile! It looks like Naomi Campbell's smile.
