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.”


    Hanson was Miss Delaware USA in 2011, and says she’s going on the show to win money and challenges, and meet the guy of her dreams.

    Hey, if she can survive beauty pageants, she’s probably got a fighting chance.
