Neleh, Tammy doing well as reporters.
Survivor Marquesas cast members Neleh Dennis and Tammy Leitner both used their fame from the show to get jobs on local news shows. Tammy was a journalist before the show, but Neleh worked at a department store. Still, she seems to be doing well as an entertainment reporter; the morning show she’s on has gone up in the ratings. Tammy’s doing well, too; her news director calls her “very much a bulldog reporter.”
