The former Los Angeles Rams cheerleader and Utah Jazz dancer was voted off Survivor's latest installment last night. Chelsea Townsend, the EMT and professional NFL cheerleader who won multiple individual immunity challenges this season, yet received only a small amount of air time. 

From the Hollywood Reporter

First, here are Probst's thoughts on Chelsea from the preseason: "If she flamed out fast, I would be bummed for her, but not surprised. If she ran an alliance, I also wouldn't be surprised. It comes down to this: how much of her EMT training and experience can she apply to this game? She says, 'People see me as a young and pretty woman, and they forget that I'm in life-or-death situations. I'm not going to be the one panicking when the vote's coming, or in the middle of a challenge, or if we can't get the fire going.' If that's true, then those are some really amazing skills. But as we've all seen, it's one thing to say it, and another thing to do it."  

 "I think Chelsea is an even nicer person than my first impression. She's also even more physically skilled than I anticipated. In those two areas she really impressed. As for why we haven't seen more from Chelsea, it's really just an unfortunate situation where there are only so many minutes in an episode and the story was being driven more by others. That is not to say in any way that Chelsea was not involved in strategy. I know enough to know that every player on some level is controlling their destiny, especially in their perception of the moves they are making and how those moves are impacting the game. One of the caveats of starting a season with 20 players is you will not have enough time for everybody's story to be told and that is what is happening this season. There are a few players who were really taking charge and so those players tend to be featured more in the interviews. We say this to every player before the game starts. Your best bet is to play your first time as though you are playing your second time. The most common post-game complaints center around, 'I wish I had played harder and made my moves sooner.' I feel for Chelsea and any player who gives their heart to this game but doesn't feel adequately represented. If there is anything to be taken from a situation like this, I think it falls in the world of 'make it impossible for us to not notice.'"
