Contestant-related press and rumors

Reality Blurred
February 6, 2009: Andy Dehnart of Reality Blurred blogging fame posts a late pre-game interview with Taj. Among the highlights:

"Taj was recruited because 'they were casting for an NFL wife; I fit the profile' mentioned in an e.mail sent to NFL teams that was forwarded to her and that she responded to. She didn’t hesitate to do Survivor—even though 'I’ve never watched an episode before in my life; never,' she said. Ironically, fellow SWV member 'Coko loves Survivor; she’s watched every episode, I’ve never watched a show in my life,' Taj said, noting that SWV’s members 'support me completely.'"

Taj's CBS S18 site bio
January, 2009: CBS gets around to putting up S18 content:

"Tamara 'Taj' Johnson-George already has a lot on her plate, but can't wait to add SURVIVOR contestant into the mix. A Grammy®-nominated singer, successful author, wife of a former NFL pro and mother of two wonderful boys, Taj believes she will be the 'most underestimated player' in the game.
    A Grammy®-nominee for her soul group SWV ('Sisters With Voices'), Taj says 'her group was the one to beat.' Selling over six million records, her time as a singer has prepared her for the spotlight.
    In addition to her music career, Taj is also an accomplished writer. The author of 'Player HateHER: How To Avoid The Beat Down And Live In A Drama Free World,' she tries to practice what she preaches as her true pride and life’s focus lies within her family. The wife of Heisman Trophy winner and former Tennessee Titan running back Eddie George, she warns all opponents, 'I'm not the average NFL wife and mother.'
   Growing up in Brooklyn, Taj overcame both physical and mental abuse in her life. With her background, it's no wonder she says she's 'naturally distrustful.' Taj goes on to say 'I am literally, truly a survivor, who has survived more things you can ever imagine.' She is used to beating the odds and plans to do it again.
    In her free time, Taj says she is very physical and likes to workout, running, swimming and doing yoga and kickboxing. Taj is the total package built around strength and street smarts and will be a fierce competitor in this game.
    Taj currently resides in Nashville, Tenn. Her birth date is April 29."
