Boatwright was a high school athlete who competed in basketball, volleyball, cross country and track where, as a freshman, she help set a record in the two mile relay that still stands today. She continues to be active in sports, having just competed in the Nashville "Music City Marathon." Because of her sports background, she is not only interested in the major sports such as NFL Football, Major League Baseball and NBA Basketball, but also college sports and such diverse sports as rodeo and track.

    Excerpts from her official CBS Survivor: Winners at War cast bio page (1/15/20):


    "Pet peeves: Parents of young kids who think their kids are going pro, negative people, takers, and slow drivers.


    Who is your inspiration in life?

    One of my grandmother's best friends, Elizabeth Pascuzzi. From the time I was a young girl until the day she passed she would tell me, "You're a winner." I even brought with me a letter she had written me many years ago as inspiration before entering this round of Survivor.


    What does Survivor mean to you and your family?

    One of my strongest memories of my stepfather (who I called dad) was watching Survivor with him. He was the one who encouraged me to try out. When Jeff announced my name as the winner of Season 11, you can see me running to him first and giving him a big hug. He passed away two years ago. So, Survivor will always be our game.


    As Survivor approaches Season 40 and celebrates 20 years on television, what does it mean to be a part of the legacy?

    Incredible to think I have been blessed with the opportunity to be a part of the mothership of all reality shows that fostered the reality show movement. Now, I get to do it all again!


    How will you play differently than you did in your past season?

    Honestly, I really don't know until I see what cards the game deals me this go around. I do plan on being the sweet Midwest girl that I am except this time with a bit of edge."
