Ami Cusack Biography (Courtesy Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


Ami Cusack (born January 25, 1973) was a contestant on Survivor: Vanuatu and Survivor: Micronesia. She is the former Charitable Director of Experimental and Applied Sciences (EAS). Cusack is a model/barista who posed for Playboy magazine in 1996.

Personal background

Cusack was born and raised in Lakewood, Colorado. She is the oldest daughter of Richard and Virginia. Richard is a retired Navy seaman, and Virginia, a former substitute English teacher. She attended Golden High School, and the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (RMCAD) in Lakewood.

In 1996, her 18-year old brother, Kyle, was killed in an accident involving a drunk driver. Since then, her mother has conducted seminars in high schools about the consequences of drinking and driving.

Cusack's Survivor: Vanuatu bio states she was dating a woman named Crissy. Her girlfriend also appeared on the show. However, in an interview, Cusack stated "I'm not gay. I never was gay. I'm just very openhearted. I was very much in love with Crissy, but things just didn't work out between us. I still love her, and she's my closest friend today." In a 2008 interview with AfterEllen, Cusack also said: "Oh gosh, I don't know. I don't know if I would put a specific label on any of it. I mean, if I met the woman of my dreams and fell in love, I would stay with her, and if I met the man of my dreams and fell in love, I would stay with him. Like, I don't know. "Bisexual" doesn't really seem to fit me, and "lesbian" doesn't really fit. I don't know. I don't know what I would classify myself [as].

Modeling

In the mid-late 1990s Cusack appeared regularly as a model in photospreads and on covers for Muscle Media 2000, the muscle magazine published by her then-fiancé Bill Phillips. Cusack also worked for Phillips' sports-nutrition company EAS, initially answering phones, and eventually as Charitable Director which she held until 1998, when Phillips sold the company. Cusack can be seen in the promotional video entitled Body of Work, which depicts the ten winners of the first ever "Body for Life Challenge" in 1997. Cusack also appeared in the book Body-for-LIFE, demonstrating various exercises.

Survivor: Vanuatu

At the final six tribal council, Cusack was the thirteenth contestant voted off of Survivor: Vanuatu. Ami was the fourth member of the jury. Despite the fact that Twila betrayed her, she still voted for Twila to win the $1 million and title of sole survivor.

Survivor: Micronesia

Cusack appeared on Survivor: Micronesia, the sixteenth season of Survivor, which began airing on February 7, 2008. She was one of ten recurring favorites on the Malakal tribe. Probst commented on Cusack, "Ami will betray you; she'll do whatever it takes to get deeper in the game." Cusack was the eighth contestant to be voted out of the competition.
