    From her Survivor: Cook Islands bio page: (8/23/06)


    "Candice Woodcock was born and raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina. She graduated from Terry Sanford High School where she was president of her class and captain of the soccer and cross country teams. She received a perfect score on the math portion of her SATs.


    Woodcock won full merit scholarships to both the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University. She accepted the Morehead Scholarship to attend UNC-Chapel Hill and eventually received her Bachelor of Science Degree in biology and psychology with a minor in chemistry.


    Survivor: Africa inspired Woodcock to do service work in Africa. Following her freshman year of college, she spent 10 and a half weeks living in a mud hut with a tribal family in the western highlands of Kenya. She taught primary and secondary school in the village and designed her own service project where she ran a clinic that distributed over 700 pairs of eyeglasses that had been donated by parties in the United States. Inspired by her work in Kenya, Woodcock became the fundraising director and then executive director of Students for Students International, a completely student-run, non-profit organization at UNC-Chapel Hill that gives scholarships to students in Zimbabwe and Tanzania. Woodcock also spent a summer studying health care in Chile and Peru and another summer splitting her time between work at the Cancer Clinic at George Washington University Hospital and La Clinica del Pueblo, a free Latino clinic in Washington, D.C.


    After graduation, Woodcock decided to take a year off before continuing her studies. She worked full-time for six months as an Assistant Director of Clinical Trials and as a Director of External Practice Development for an ophthalmology practice, and then part-time for the following six months. She has just begun graduate school at Georgetown University to attain a Master's Degree in physiology and biophysics. She then plans to attend medical school. She hopes to use her medical degree to do service work in developing countries and also in underserved areas of the U.S.


    Woodcock enjoys spending time with her family and friends, working out, playing sports, being in the water and playing with her dog, Louis James.


    Woodcock currently resides in Washington, D.C. Her birth date is November 12, 1982."

    From her (and John's) pre-game interview with EW's Dalton Ross:


    "The former Candice Woodcock is back for a third go round (after Cook Islands and Heroes vs. Villains) and says she has no problem voting her husband off — under the right circumstances. 'If we decided that there was one person going to the end and we would want another person on the jury for a vote,' explains Candice, 'that would be a possible scenario that we would vote one or the other out. But other than that we're going to stay loyal.' Says John, 'I'm not going to be forced to write Candice's name down in a situation that we haven't already talked about. I mean, I've got to sleep next to this woman for the rest of my life, so I'm not going to do something stupid like that.' Adds Candice, 'Smart man.'"


    From her (and John's) official CBS bio page:


    "Relationship to Significant Castaway: John’s Wife
    Previous Season: Survivor: Cook Islands-13th out, 5th jury member; Survivor: Heroes vs. Villians-13th out, 5th jury member
    Current Residence: Washington, D.C.
    Occupation: Physician, Anesthesiology Resident
    Why Did You Want to Return to Survivor and Play with Your Loved One? We are both successful in our individual lives, but we never get a chance to be competitive and play together on a team. I can’t think of anybody I would trust more to be on my side as a teammate. I’m very proud of my husband and I want to show him off!"
