PORTLAND, Maine — Former University of Maine basketball player and Miss Maine Ashley Underwood has made it to Sunday’s season finale of the television reality show “Survivor.”

Underwood won an immunity challenge in Wednesday night’s episode, meaning she couldn’t be voted off. Thus she’ll join a handful of remaining contestants at the finale.

The school nurse from Benton was one of 18 contestants participating in “Survivor: Redemption Island,” which began airing in February. The show features castaways who compete and vote each other off. The final survivor selected by fellow participants wins $1 million.

The last Mainer on the show was Bob Crowley, a bow-tied physics teacher from South Portland who became a statewide celebrity when he emerged as the winner in 2008.
