Jamie Newton is a 24 year old water ski instructor from North Hollywood, California. Also, just like fellow contestants Morgan McDevitt and Blake Towsley, Jamie has a background in modeling. With many of the younger contestants being models and the older contestants being heavy into physical fitness, Survivor Guatemala might well become a battle between the young models and the athletic seniors.
According to The Muleskinner, Jamie Newton became a model after being discovered in a Tommy Hilfiger store. His time on the catwalk led to him participating in a “Sexiest Man in America” contest. According to Soapdom, Jamie Newton won round four of the semi-finalist competition and became the fourth of five finalists. As part of being a finalist, Jamie appeared on a special episode of “All My Children.”
Jamie Newton’s CBS bio also notes that he was a member of the wrestling team at Central Missouri State University. Jamie won the wrestling title Regional Champ in 1999. Jamie received a bachelor degree in finance from the university.
Like fellow contestants Cindy Hall and Judd Sergeant, Jamie Newton has an identical twin. Jamie has a twin brother named Ramie. The presence of three sets on twins on Survivor Guatemala has caused speculation of if there will be a twin twist.
