Contestant-related press and rumors
Official CBS site for Survivor: Cook Islands
August 23, 2006: Officially revealed as a Survivor: Cook Islands contestant on CBS's The Early Show. From her official CBS bio:

   "Rebecca Borman was born and raised in Laurelton, New York, where she attended Jamaica High School. She attended three years of college at Montgomery Community College and Essex Community College. She then went on to study drama at Queens College. While in school, Borman was also a dancer and did make-up for theater productions.

Borman has been a make-up artist for 15 years. She received her first Emmy Award for Outstanding Make-Up on a Daytime Talk Show for her work on "The View," where she still works and does make-up for former Survivor Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
    Borman enjoys dancing, tennis, collecting music and rescuing stray cats. She is very proud of her family, including her father who, after 40 years as a banker, is retired and living in Long Island with Borman's stepmother, a professional belly dancer. Her mother is a principal in White Plains, New York, and her sister, Nicole, resides in New Jersey with her husband. Borman just recently purchased her first home with her stepsister, Jocelyn.
    Borman currently resides in Laurelton, New York, with her two cats, Blinky and Pookie. Her birth date is August 31, 1971. "
April 22, 2006: As you can see from WireImage's many pictures of the acceptance speech (and backstage award-fondling opportunity), Rebecca (and her colleagues) won an Emmy this year for their makeup work at The View:

"Elena George, Rebecca Borman, Eve Pearl, Karen Dupiche and Lori Klein, Winners for Best Makeup at the 33rd Annual Creative Arts EMMY Awards."

We're sure those powdering and Barbara Walters-reanimating skills will come in handy on Survivor. Either that or Burnett is hoping that by casting Oscar and Emmy nominees on his shows, he might actually win an award now and then.
