Liberty, MS


Darrah Johnson was born and raised in Liberty, Mississippi, and works as a mortician/funeral director. She previously worked as a salesperson, a fitness trainer and a waitress. She holds an Associate of Arts degree in mortuary science from the Southwest Mississippi Community College and Holmes Community College of Funeral Services.

Her favorite hobbies include riding four-wheelers, working out and hunting. She describes herself as outspoken, daring and adventurous. She would love to be a coroner. She is most proud of passing her National Board of Funeral Service exam to become a certified mortician and is also proud of winning Most Beautiful at Holmes Community College. Her favorite sports are softball and basketball.

Her dad is her hero because he's worked hard for the family and has always been there for her. Her primary motive for participating is for the challenge and the fact that she'd love to meet new people from all over the world with different personalities. She feels she could do well on SURVIVOR: PEARL ISLANDS because she considers herself hard working, competitive, athletic, ambitious, determined and in great physical and mental health. Her birth date is May 19, 1981.

Let us discuss Darrah Johnson

(My little disclaimer: As with all Survivor profiles, I am totally making all this stuff up as if I actually have a clue. I do not in any way know any of these survivors. However, I've received many emails from past Survivors complimenting me on my insight. So, although I make this crap up, sometimes I'm actually right.)

There's something about a little hottie choosing the life of a coroner that just doesn't sit right with me.

Neither did her video. It starts out with potential, showing her standing behind a herse in a surprisingly appealing black outfit and f' me boots. Then the camera changes and we slowly move through a room full of coffins only to focus in on one that's closed. I was thinking, "No way is she going to pop up out of that thing. Surely she wouldn't..."

But then she not only opened it up from inside, but she's also wearing a leopard-print bikini. Talk about conflicting images.

It goes from bad to worse when she speaks in that far too southern Southern accent: "My name is Darrah Johnson from Liberty, Mississippi. I am a certified mortician and I'm also a certified ass-kicker." Camera changes to Darrah in fancy dress for a small-town girl and tiara and massively huge fake smile and plucked eyebrows, "I'm also a beauty queen." Fake smile fake smile different camera angle of fake smile plucked eyebrows fake smile.

Next, she's sitting on a log in a Tom Sawyer country girl outfit, complete with pigtails (or ponytails, I always forget which is which) and she looks just adorable. But then she hocks a big loogy, "... and I'm not too shy to let them know that this Tom Sawyer country girl can do anything... Hhhhaeucckk Ptooey!"

Somewhere there are guys thinking, "Hey now! A mortician who hocks loogies. That's MY kind of girl!"

Darrah stated that she is proud of winning Most Beautiful at Holmes Community College. Now I could be entirely mistaken, but I'm thinking there wasn't a lot of beauty competition at Holmes Community College of Funeral Services.

In the video profile, her accent is toned down a bit so she wasn't quite as annoying. (Keep in mind, I LOVE the southern accent.) She said that she was impatient and has a short temper, which is a good thing for those of us watching Survivor because a good fight, even for idiotic reasons, always makes things more interesting. Let's hope that the lack of food and the heat and the bugs gets to her and she starts wiggin' out on people.

Since Darrah has been so popular on the internet (only Rupert surpasses her when it comes to Search Engine requests to my site - as of 4/19/04), I figured I may as well include a few more shots.

Here's a beautiful shot of her swimming and another of someone maybe wiping something off her chin.
