Ashley Underwood is a former Miss Maine and one of eighteen castaways on Survivor: Redemption Island.
Underwood was first known as a basketball player, taking several state-wide honors as a high school student, and later becoming one of the best players in the history of the University of Maine.
She played professionally in Europe after graduating with a nursing degree in 2007, but returned after a year to enter the Miss Maine USA contest, which she won. Her stint in the 2009 Miss USA pageant was less successful, however.
Underwood currently works as a nurse and is based in her hometown of Benton, Maine.
