From the hills of Lamorinda to the deserts of Morocco.
Natalie Smith, a native of Lafayette and 2004 graduate of Campolino High School, will appear in ABC’s newest reality TV show, “Expedition Impossible.”
The show, which is from “Survivor” producer Mark Burnett and seems to be an “Amazing Race” clone, follows thirteen three-person teams as they scramble “across vast deserts, over snow-capped mountains and through raging rivers in the beautifully exotic, fabled Kingdom of Morocco.” If they win, they’ll get $50,000 and a Ford Explorer for their troubles.
Yeah, that seems fair.
Anyway, Smith (maiden name Russell) is on “Team California Girls,” made up of her and two track-and-field teammates from UC Davis. You can watch the “meet the teams” video that includes them here. Smith’s team is first, and she’s in the middle.
While at Campolindo, Smith played track and field and soccer. She is currently a fifth-grade teacher at Woodland Christian School.
“Expedition Impossible” premieres at 9 p.m. Thursday, June 23 on ABC.
