Rossos is 'Adventure Woman'

The finale this week came down to three women, and Bethy Rossos of rural George, outside of Estacada, has won the Comcast SportsNet's 'Wanted: Adventure Woman' reality series.

Rossos, 26 and a graduate of Damascus Christian High School and Eastern Oregon University, will host her own reality television series, 'Adrenaline Hunter.' It'll premiere at 10 p.m. Tuesday, April 12, and then be aired at 7 p.m. each Wednesday for 2 1/2 months starting April 20 on Comcast SportsNet.

The second season of the 'Wanted' show has been wildly successful, attracting three times more viewers than last year, organizers say.

Rossos, featured in the March 17 Tribune, beat the competition with her love of the outdoors, enthusiasm and energy. Her new show will be about heart-pumping thrill-seeking activities, mystery and discovery. The show's adventures will include Rossos boar hunting, looking for Bigfoot, jumping out of an airplane like notorious hijacker D.B. Cooper, exploring Native American lifestyles and tempting a cougar in the wild.

Meanwhile, 'Wild Life with Jeremy,' the spin-off from last year's inaugural 'Wanted' series, will be broadcast for a second season this year. Jeremy McLaughlin, who lives in Portland, will play host again.
