So I decided to do some digging to see what I could find out about my current favorite Survivor - Mookie Lee.

First of all, his real name is Hyun. Apparently his parents didn't choose to bestow Mookie on their bouncing baby boy. Second, his volleyball team was the runner up in IHSA high school volleyball tournament in 1999. Here's Mookie in volleyball togs:

So we know he was an athlete in high school. He was also an athlete during his college years, having participated in a basketball league at the Covenant Fellowship Church in Urbana, IL. (His team did not do well...) I couldn't find any pictures of him on that team though. This may also indicate that he is a religious man.

I can also tell you that Mookie is a very common name for pets! Ah, what nuggets of knowledge Google provides...

Here are a couple more pictures of Mookie, courtest of SurvivorFever:

More contestants identified

A poster at SurvivorSucks by the name of The4Kingdoms has identified a number of Survivors by using MySpace. Here they are:

Erica Durousseau, a 27 year-old businesswoman from Lake Charles, LA.

Lisi Linares, a 30ish musician from Los Angeles, CA. Check out Lisi's website.

Perhaps this is her?

Earl Cole, a 35 year-old composer from Santa Monica, CA.

Edgardo Rivera, a 28 year-old guy from Miami Beach, FL.

Also, Anthony Robinson and Yau-Man Chan, who do not appear to have been featured in the promos, have been spoiled. Check out TDT's website for more about them.

Early word is Lisi and Stacy liked each other out there. Possible alliance?

I'm still rooting for Mookie.

Names to go with faces...

Good ol' SurvivorPhoenix has spoiled some of the contestants. Here they are:

Stacy Kimball, 27 year-old advertising producer from the snow covered state of Colorado.

Jessica DeBen, 27 year-old makeup artist from Los Angeles, CA. The sour faced one...

Michelle 'Piper' Yi, 23 year-old fashion student from Cincinnati, OH.

Rita Verreos, 38 year-old model/actress from San Antonio, TX. She's also been a pageant coach so she knows how to be cutthroat....

Mookie Lee, 24 year-old finance guy from Chicago, IL. Hometown boy!

Alex Angarita, 28 year-old attorney from Santa Monica, CA.

All credit for this spoiling to SurvivorPhoenix, TrueDorkTimes, and posters Glutwein and MayanSun from SurvivorSucks.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm pulling for Mookie to win. Go Mookie the Wookie!
