Local woman continues run on ‘Survivor’

October 26, 2005

It's 7-11 time on "Survivor: Guatemala."

After six episodes, seven castaways have been eliminated, while 11 still remain.

Tonganoxie resident Danni Boatwright is one of those 11. Boatwright, a member of the Yaxha tribe, survived the sixth episode last Thursday as one member each was eliminated from the Yaxha and Nakum tribes. In previous episodes, only the losing tribe in immunity challenges had to vote off a tribal member.

Nakum won last week's immunity challenge, which allowed its members to compete individually in a reward challenge. Rafe Judkins won the reward challenge, which allowed him to grant immunity to a Yaxha member. Judkins picked Gary Hogeboom, whose name wasn't even called during tribal council, when castaways vote off a fellow member.

Instead, by a 5-1 vote, Yaxha ousted Brian Corridan, a Columbia University graduate from New York. Tribemate Amy O'Hare, who again sprained her ankle during competition, avoided elimination once again. She and Boatwright are the only women still competing for the Yaxha tribe.

During last Thursday's episode, The Nakum ousted Margaret Bobonich, a nurse practitioner from Chardon, Ohio.

Boatwright will appear in the seventh episode at 7 p.m. Thursday, which airs on Sunflower Broadband's Channels 5 and 13.
