Ami Cusack (born January 25, 1973) is a model and barista who was a contestant on Survivor: Vanuatu and Survivor: Micronesia. She is the oldest daughter of Richard and Virginia.
She is the former Charitable Director of Experimental and Applied Sciences (EAS). Richard is a retired Navy seaman, and Virginia, a former substitute English teacher.
She made the top eight in the international pageant, the highest placement by a delegate of the United States in the pageant's five-year history.
In early August 2006, Kimmel crowned fellow former Miss USA competitor Amanda Pennekamp as Miss Earth USA, in the second live pageant held in the United States to choose a delegate for the Miss Earth competition.
During the season, Kimmel began a relationship with Ozzy Lusth, formerly from Survivor: Cook Islands. This was Kimmel's third season competing on Survivor.
As of the reunion show, they were still dating, but they subsequently separated. She was an early target in the game, receiving one vote from Jessica "Sugar" Kiper in the first Tribal Council and three votes from Colby Donaldson, Tom Westman and Stephenie La Grossa in the second Tribal Council.
Kimmel won the Miss Montana USA 2005 title after placing first runner-up in both the 20 pageants.
Cusack later appeared on the 16th season of Survivor, entitled Survivor: Micronesia — Fans vs. She was one of ten recurring favorites on the Malakal tribe.
Amanda Lee Kimmel (born August 3, 1984) is an American actress, model, beauty queen, and animal rights advocate who has competed in the Miss USA and Miss Earth pageants.
I don't know if I would put a specific label on any of it. 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.
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. "Bisexual" doesn't really seem to fit me, and "lesbian" doesn't really fit. 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.
After passing on her Montana crown to Jill Mc Lain in late August 2005, Kimmel traveled to Quezon City, Philippines, to participate in the Miss Earth 2005 pageant.
