chores for Survivor: Micronesia. Included is Alexis's pre-show
interview and Probst's comments:
"THE ROOKIES: ALEXIS JONES
OCCUPATION: Motivational speaker
HOMETOWN: Beverly Hills (originally from Austin, Tex.)
SAYS: ''People will see the Southern belle in me. But I'm
fiercely competitive — despite my dimples.''
SAYS: ''When she came in she was so excited. And I launched
into this speech about how you need to drop the excitement
and get your head in the game because these other people
out here, they're already playing, they're already playing
you, and they're already seeing you're this little simple
girl from Texas that they're going to run right over. And
she looks at me and says, 'I've read every person here.'
And she had a pretty good read on everybody. I thought, This
is all I need to know. This girl knows
how to play. As a fan, I picked this girl to win."

possibly from Alexis (yes, she's just your average Survivor fan):
Around Longhorn Country"
From Tuesday's Austin
Is she a spy? A double-agent? A burgeoning Trojan fan
site, Inside USC, is co-authored by - get this - an Austinite.
Alexis Jones, a communications grad student at USC, is
a 2001 Westlake High graduate with a father, a mother
and two grandparents who graduated from UT. But she's
also buddies with USC quarterback Matt Leinert [sic]
and was among the small group partying with him after
the Heisman festivities 10 days ago. Home for the holidays,
she's been skulking around Longhorn Country, feeding
the Web site. Look out.
