This is another step up in the use of "known" people on the show. Former Cowboys QB Gary Hogeboom was on Survivor a couple series back, and on the current rip-off show Pirate Master, the former Chiefs RB Christian Oyoke had a brief stay.
Hogeboom was apparently 'outed' during his season by a chick that happened to work in sports talk radio, where there was no mention of anyone knowing Okoye.
I guess it all depends on who else they cast, but generally they go for a good number of hot bodies, with some older folks sprinkled in. Normally there's a tattooed/pierced 'outcast' type, so it might be interesting to see her outgoing personality try and fit in that spot. But I would think there's 10 times the chance that she will be recognized as a former Playboy covergirl vs. as a WWE diva.
I don't like her chances to go too far, but maybe she'll turn one of her lip rings into a fishing hook, and earn an extended stay that way?
I'm sure we'll hear all about this in one of those segments they do that I don't pay attention to, like hype for The Condemned long after the rest of the world moved on or showing John Cena driving in a celebrity racing thing.
Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

You haven't quite missed him yet... he'll turn up later in Pirate Master's run along with the rest of the booted pirates as part of a "ghost crew" trying to steal a treasure from the main crew. Expect this around Episode 7 or so.
As for the idea of Ashley on Survivor, I'll chalk this up in the "I'll believe it when I see it" category. We've already had one similar rumor debunked (Johnny Fairplay saying he would be part of All-Stars 2 next spring, which has already been confirmed to only comprise of people from Season 9 onward), so until she shows up in that cast announcement, I'll be the skeptic. Besides, they haven't even started filming yet.
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
Okay, here's the lowdown: From "The World", your hosts are JR and The King Diva of the Decade/Shawn Michaels: Winner: Trish Stratus, but only because no other nominee would show up. At least she congratulated Moolah. Moment Number Ten:
