Date Story Source
January 14, 2003 - "Says series host Jeff Probst: 'You look at Janet, and you think she's going to be the first voted off. Then you talk to her, and you find out she's willing to do anything to win this game. She has all the ingredients to be a winner. She'd lie to you in a second.'" - St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

January 13, 2003 Manuel Mendoza's pre-game quotes and impressions:
- "Initial impression: Chatterbox. Distinctions: Holds ironing parties at her house."
- "Who are you? 'I'm just a middle-aged, Middle-American, middle-income mom, and I'm having a midlife crisis gone terribly wrong. You see, I signed up for Survivor: Cancun. Apparently, there's been a mistake.'"
- "What would get her voted off: 'I don't have an athletic bone in my body.'"
- "Strategy: 'When you're a mother, especially when you have teenagers, you can see a lie coming a mile away. I think that'll really help me. And it'll be hard to pull the plug on ol' Mom.'"
- "Post-Survivor show-biz prospects: 'I'm sure not going to count on that Playboy shoot. That would go over real well with the ladies at church.'"
- Dallas Morning News.
