Survivor Palau crap:

Contestant-related press and rumors
Date Story Source
January 26, 2005 - "Angie is... looks-wise a fish out of water. Tattoos, very interesting background, some of the stuff she's been through. And I think her obvious obstacle is going to be: do people judge her by the way she looks? Or will she be able to socialize quickly enough for people to look past... you know, the way her body looks, and get into who she is. Because she's a very bright, and crafty girl. I think if she can uh, um, assimilate she might be able to hang low enough to stay in the game." - Jeff Probst's pre-game comments on the contestants, from the official CBS site.
January 9, 2005 - Biancaxxx and UltimateSurvivor5 come across an entry in Angie's LiveJournal from November 17th, 2004,which was during filming. This suggests Angie may have been a pre-jury boot. - Survivor Sucks EZ board
January 6, 2005 - AnomyBC comes across a picture of Angie on a LiveJournal page maintained by one of Angie's friends. (Picture above). - Survivor Sucks EZ board
January 3, 2005 - UltimateSurvivor5 and Biancaxxx reveal some details that led them to Cassandra (Angie):
"Over the past few days, details have been pouring in about the 'female Lex' who bartends at a popular New Orleans night club. After many hours of hard work and research, by both biancaxxx and myself, as well as many others, biancaxxx was the first to guess her name. The woman, who was known by 'Angie' (her middle name) on the show, is described by one source as 'obnoxious,' but also 'someone who will talk to you about anything.'
  'She has this punch that knocks me flat every time, and she’ll pick you up and give you another one. What a trooper!' claims one of her friends from the Lounge Lizards bar, where she works.
  While there are no pictures of her (yet), we know that she has long dark hair and glasses, and has her arms fully 'sleeved' with tattoos. She sometimes braids her hair and is also said to have several piercings. She is also an artist and enjoys creating watercolor paintings. Reading is also one of her favorite hobbies. She also makes her own clothes.
  She is said to have a strange obsession with 'bugs and circuses' and is reportedly very good at 'working people' and 'haggling' with them. She has never owned a car and bikes to and from work, so she should be in fairly good shape.
  'Angie' has a very close relationship with her parents, but rarely sees her brother, who is in the army. She is currently in a committed relationship.
  How will this self-described 'pack-rat' fare on Survivor: Palau? We have a potential boot spoiler, but until then, you’ll have to wait until February 3, when Survivor: Palau is expected to premiere on CBS."

January 2, 2005 - Name revealed by "Biancaxxx" on the S10 Contestant Confirmator. - SNN
May 29, 2004 - Angie provides the following profile of herself in her own blog:
"Bio: I'm a somewhat anti-social pack-rat of a certain New Orleans variety. You know, the kind that walks down the railroad tracks and collects bits of bone, pieces of rusty metal, and frayed lengths of decaying fabric. You never know, I may need them one day.
   I also paint. Watercolors of the same same sour girls over and over. Some sort of obsession with that strange prettiness that only pouting can produce.
   I read a lot. Constantly absorbed into almost anything, though i tend to prefer those who are insolently intoxicated. Burroughs, Bukowski, Thompson. But i also love anything Tom Robbins and the classic Katherine Dunn "Geek Love"
   I date an equally pack-ratty boy who wears kilts and shares my love of bugs and circuses."

August 23, 2003 - In's Best Bartender in New Orleans forum, "feetnik" posts the following:
"for those of you who've never checked out lounge lizards, you need to get there, and fast.

angie makes a mean EVERYTHING, and she's so sweet, you don't even see it coming.
she's there during the week (except wednesdays), and she'll talk to you about anything. PLUS, she'll let you watch the good stuff on TV. she's always looking for drinking guinea pigs, and she's very good.

oh, she has this punch that knocks me flat every time, and she'll pick you up, and give you another one. what a trooper!"
