Caroline Craven Simpkins
April 5, 1991
|Endurance: Tehachapi, 6th place|
Although she’s a straight-A student, Callie’s favorite subject is P.E. She’s a soccer superstar (her coach calls her “Beckham”), and two years ago she was accepted on the Olympic state soccer team, even though she was a year too young. Callie also plays tennis, lacrosse and baseball. Playing mud football with the boys on her street has helped her get along well with the opposite sex, but she thinks that getting along well with everyone will give her the advantage she needs to be Endurance champion. When not playing sports, Callie is the drummer for a hard-rock band.
Callie was born to Massie and Kathy Simpkins on April 5, 1991. She has an older sister, Emmy, who is a redshirt goalkeeper on the Rutgers University soccer team. Her grandfather, Billy Goodman, played baseball for the Boston Red Sox (1947-1957), Baltimore Orioles (1957) and the Chicago White Sox (1958-61).
She began playing soccer at age five when her parents signed her up at the YMCA.
Callie was one of the 14 contestants that made it through the Right to Stay. In the partner selection, she was partnered with Chris when he won the challenge, and they became the Yellow Team.
- "Yeah, get Blue, get Blue!"
Callie attended Duke University, where she plays soccer.
- She shares the same name (though spelled differently) as Calley from Endurance 2. Coincidentally, both girls were on the Yellow Teams of their respective seasons, and almost had the same ranking: Callie's Yellow Team ranked 6th on E4 while Calley's placed 5th on E2.
- However, Callie was more athletic and assertive.
