While Survivor: Heroes vs Villians is this year's version of the long running reality show, CBS is casting the next season. They've asked potential contestants to send in videos of themselves and they've whittled the choices down to a few good candidates. The LGBT community is represented (as we have been in every season so far).

There's also a lesbian lacrosse champion who's so competitive she always catches a wedding bouquet so she can elbow the bridesmaids. Sadly, she doesn't bother to say her name!

You can vote for them to be cast members on next year's show on the CBS site. Their videos are after the jump.

Is there such a thing as a good rapper? The whole genre is monotone egotism.

Bil, I know I sound like a broken record to you, but the LGBT community hasn't been represented every year... gay men and lesbians have. They've never had an out trans contestant on U.S. Survivor (as they have in other countries). While I understand you're using LGBT to mean the full community, this is another instance where LGBT basically means we can sound inclusive while excluding an entire community.

I believe she states her name as Cheryl. :)
