Former Miss Delaware will compete on ‘Survivor’

    Newark, Del., resident Katie Hanson is about to take on a new kind of challenge.

    The former Miss Delaware will appear on this season of the CBS show “Survivor,” which premiers next month.

    “I love the outdoors which means I will be able to build shelter and catch food,” Hanson writes in her bio. “I am very athletic so I know I will be beneficial to my tribe and help us win the immunity challenges.”
