New 'Survivor' Castaways: A Closer Look at Sally Schumann

Who's next on the docket? Well, it's a closer look at 'Survivor: Panama - Exile Island' castaway Sally Schumann.

According to the occupation listed on her bio, she's a 27 year old social worker living in Chicago, IL. But, is she? Reading through her official CBS bio reveals "She currently lives in Chicago, where she works as a waitress and bartender." She was a social worker for four years in Minnesota, where was born and raised. While in Minnesota, she also coached high school girls soccer. She thinks she's compassionate, competitive and funny. Okay. We'll see.

She's a huge fan of both 'Survivor' and 'The Amazing Race' and this is the fifth time she's tried to be on the show. Recently divorced, she is now dating her best friend.

Off to her favorites page:
Hmm, I like most of her board games (Scrabble, Cribbage, Yahtzee, UNO), but I haven't a clue what Settlers of Caton is. Anyone know? Most of her sports to play are with a ball, birdie or horseshoe. That's not too great for the show, although it may help with comps that include throwing or aiming. She enjoys fishing and running, both good activities for the show.Her books, music tastes are okay (with me). Oh! She sometimes feels like a nut! Almond Joy.

I'm not seeing anything on the web about her that's not related to the show, so I'll have to judge my prediction basing it on the CBS info alone. Y'know, I think she might do well. Both bartending and social work are jobs where you listen to folks more than talk. She's athletic enough, intelligent and just might make it to the Final Four.

Then again, I could be way off base.
What do you think?

Sally is great. She is loving and compassionate, as she says, but she knows how to play the game and is extremely competitive and sometimes feisty. I actually know her, but I still have no idea what she's going to be like on the show. I'm kind of nervous.
