Those who have experienced Scout have this to say:
"Visually, if you had to draw her (Scout), it would be almost like a tree standing there with her branches wide open saying, 'Come to me.' She very much fit into the Vanuatu scene in terms of spirituality. She wasn't joking. She brought a bit of fresh air. She wasn't a cynic. She was an optimist."
Jeff Probst, Survivor host, Tulsa World
Experiencing Scout "First hand" through several elements on her ranch, I know her heart for others is uplifting and pure!!!
Richard Burkhart, Producer and CEO of DreaMakers, Inc. in Los Angeles
Scout is without a doubt one of my very favorite Survivors of all time. While on location in Vanuatu, I felt she had an aura around her all the time and consistently was putting out a very positive vibe. I was constantly impressed with how hard she competed in the most difficult of challenges. Giving less than 100% is never an option with Scout. Against all odds, Scout made it to be one of the final three contestants, and although I am supposed to be a strictly objective observer and judge...I couldn't help but be "proud" of her and her accomplishment. I felt a kindred spirit with Scout as her love of God, country and of all people is infectious and inspirational. John Kirhoffer, Survivor Director of Challenges
"Scout is a true one of a kind. An absolute original with a great sense of humor about herself. She's full of all kinds of little bits of wisdom. She actually made me a better host during her stay on Survivor. JEFF PROBST, in regards to SCOUT April 1, 2005
