Contestant-related press and rumors
Date Story Source
January 26, 2005 - "Jenn the nanny... this is going to be interesting to watch her. Because if you look at her, and her nails with the French manicure, and her neatly tucked-in hair, you're thinking, "You'll never make it out there. You're gonna fade on day one." But... I think there might be a little more to her than people are gonna see at first glance. Her biggest competition? The other women. " - Jeff Probst's pre-game comments on the contestants, from the official CBS site.

"Next 'Survivor' may be from The Dalles
   ...Lyon is the daughter of Jane and Lawrence Lyon of The Dalles.
   She graduated from The Dalles High School in 1990, according to the school’s 1990 Steelhead yearbook.
   Lyon also has an athletic background, lettering in soccer and track in 1990. She qualified for state in track in the 400 M relay and the 300 M hurdles, according to the yearbook. She was also voted “Most Outstanding” on her track team.

  Jennifer Lyon, the eighteenth contestant to be revealed on Survivor News’ Contestant Confirmator, appears to have been located.
  New information received and researched indicates that she is a "gorgeous blonde" from California. Jennifer, "Jenny" as she is apparently known, is 32 years-old.
  "Someone as pretty as Jenn would probably be in California even if she wasn't from there," said an anonymous source, and as it turns out, she is from California, most likely Los Angeles, even though she is originally from The Dalles, Oregon.
  If correctly identified, this makes Lyon the third Los Angeles contestant on Survivor: Palau, along with models Ashlee Ashby and Bobby Drinkard.
  While Jennifer’s exact occupation is unknown, it is believed that she once worked for a celebrity and may currently have a job working in the media."
