Paths tool is a good choice.
Here's a "poor man's isolation method":
This is just a levels adjustment (Colors->Levels): "auto", then pull
the highlight slider in toward the center. As you can see it's not
perfect, but if the BG is the same on all the pics, it might be a
time-saver since a little erasing here and there should be enough to
clean up afterwards.
