VIDEO Exclusive Survivor Philippines Interview — Lisa Whelchel Didn’t Expect To Win, Will Co-Host Jeff Probst Talk Show

December 18, 2012 03:00 PM by Ryan Haidet

Lisa Whelchel went into Survivor: Philippines with a major secret — being a former television teen star as Blair on “The Facts Of Life.”  It was a secret she was able to keep until Jonathan Penner exposed her personal past at the final Tribal Council, which brought stunned stares from nearly everybody who was sitting there.  In our exclusive one-on-one red carpet interview with Lisa at the Survivor: Philippines finale, Lisa told us that she was actually very surprised that Penner chose to out her like that.  In our brief chat, which you can watch in its entirety inside this article, Lisa also explained that she wasn’t expecting the jury to award her with victory.  She also offered an update on her diagnosis with West Nile Virus (which she got in Texas not the Philippines) before revealing details on how she’s about to start a co-hosting role on “The Jeff Probst Show.”
