As announced by press release yesterday, former Survivor cast membersÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â¬”Palau’s Coby Archa, Kimberly Mullen, and Janu Tornell; Vanuatu’s Scout Cloud Lee; and Australia’s Michael SkupinÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â¬”will fast for the next three days, drinking only water in solidarity as part of the Darfur Fast for Life campaign.
As reported by Reality Blurred, the former cast members announced in a press release that what they went through on the show “pales in comparison to the survivors in Darfur who have been systematically hunted, terrorized and driven from their homes and villages orchestrated by the Sudanese government through rebel army attacks and aerial bombings,” and say that as a result, they will “come together as a group to begin a water-only fast and to let the people of Darfur to know they are not forgotten. We see their suffering and we will share in it, if even in a small way, taking up the baton from Mia Farrow, Sir Richard Branson and many others around the world.”
However, many people are reporting this as disingenuous considering they also released detailed bios that included their current relationship status, along with the press release.
