Jerri got her revenge on Colby and outlasted him in the All-stars but she was still annoying as every and people still wanted her out before them. Luckly Lex was stupid and betrayed his team and took out Jerri and kept Amber, only to have Amber come back to her old team on the merger and kick Lex out. Jerri could have made it further but the drive to see her gone outwayed common sense.

History From Past Survivor
Reality strikes a new first! Jerri Manthey has become the first reality babe to pose nude in Playboy. She is also moved into the surreal life show on the WB and recently made an appearance on Joe Schmo. She is also rumoured to be back for Survivor 8 as the all star survivor. She is one sexy girl and if you liked her on Survivor then you have to check her out at on the links to the left. If you have never seen her in the nude then check out these very tasteful displays of Jerri naked.
In past years, Jerri was acting in LA as she starred in a comedy "Lady Macbeth gets a nose job". In Survivor news, Jerri was upset over the horrible editing of Burnett, as she became the most hated character in a reality series since Jordan of Big Brother graced our tv's last summer. Jerri wanted the public to know that she was only grumpy, as was everyone else, because of the lack of food, not because she is evil. Burnett never aired parts of Jerri's nice side and now the whole public is against her for it.
Expect Jerri to become more famous as the months continue and to all you Jerri haters: "Go suck an Egg".
