VIDEO Exclusive Survivor: Philippines Interview — Mike Skupin Reveals Other Seasons He Nearly Competed On

December 18, 2012 02:30 PM by Ryan Haidet

Mike Skupin was one of the three veteran castaways previously evacuated from the game who was selected to compete on Survivor: Philippines.  But this wasn’t the first time Skupin was a serious contender as a returning player.  In our exclusive one-on-one red carpet interview with Skupin immediately after Denise Stapley was crowned the winner, he listed for us all of the times he was nearly placed back on the show.  It’s quite an extensive list and extremely interesting.  And although he didn’t pass out and fall into a fire this season, Skupin, who host Jeff Probst has compared to Mr. Magoo, showed off his clumsy side with bumps, cuts and scrapes all over his body.  Despite all the blood Skupin spilled in the Philippines, he tells us the injuries weren’t as serious as they appeared.  To hear about all that and more, jump inside this article to watch our exclusive red carpet interview with Skupin!

In both of his times playing the game, Skupin never received a single vote against him, but as a member of the final three on Survivor: Philippines, he did get one vote to win the game, which came from Carter.

Listed below are some of the seasons Skupin says he was nearly chosen to compete on:

  • Survivor: Pearl Islands (season 7).
  • Survivor: All-Stars (season 8).
  • Survivor: Guatemala (season 11).  It was supposed to be himself and Rodger Bingham (also of Survivor: The Australian Outback).  Instead, Stephenie LaGrossa and Bobby Jon Drinkard of Survivor: Palau were selected.
  • Survivor: Fans Vs. Favorites (season 16).
  • Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains (season 20).
  • Survivor: South Pacific (season 23).  He would have had Ozzy Lusth’s position.

What do you think of what Mike had to say in our interview?  Do you think he should have won the game?  Are you happy he had the chance to play again?  Sound off and leave a comment below!
