Pee Dee woman thriving on national TV competition 'Redneck Island'

Posted: Updated:
FLORENCE, SC -

A Bennettsvillle native is doing well on the competition TV show "Redneck Island."

Although she was born and grew up in Bennettsville, Brittany Woodle was living in Myrtle Beach and waiting tables at Broadway at the Beach when she applied for the CMT show -- more than a year ago.

Season 3 of the show debuted on June 3 and so far, Woodle, age 25, has managed to avoid four eliminations for a shot at $100,000

 The show itself consists of a group of mostly Southern folks put on an island – and compete against each other in physical matches, somewhat like the CBS Show Survivor.

 The last 3 weeks, Woodle, who graduated from USC in 2011, has been part of a winning team.

 In addition to being a Bennettsville native, Woodle graduated from high school at Pine Forest in Fayetteville.

During college she was a member of the USC performing dance team.

She says if she wins, she'll give money to her church, her family, buying a new home and getting herself a new truck.

Like most folks on the show, Woodle is a true Southerner:  she's always up for some cow tipping, drinking, fishing and hunting, according to her profile on the show's website.

 CMT says that this season's Redneck Island is "redder than ever" as 15 self-proclaimed rednecks fight through physical challenges for $100,000

Here is part of her profile from the CMT website: Brittany grew up a country girl with a big mouth on her and an even bigger opinion about everything. She learned how to fish, hunt and mud bog, thanks to her country roots.

She loves being the center of attention and will do anything for some laughs. She's only been with military men because they are strong and know what they want.

Redneck Island airs at 9 pm each Saturday.
