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

December 18, 2012 02:30:48 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!

VIDEO Exclusive Interview With Survivor: Philippines Winner Denise Stapley

December 18, 2012 12:00:15 by Ryan Haidet

Denise Stapley, a sex therapist from Iowa, didn’t have an easy road to the $1 million prize on Survivor: Philippines.  She was on a tribe that lost ever single challenge before it was dissolved.  Even crazier, Denise is the first person in the show’s 25-season history to visit every single Tribal Council without getting voted out of the game.  At the end of all 39 days, Denise found herself at the final Tribal Council where she beat veteran castaway Mike Skupin and teen TV star Lisa Whelchel.  Whether you were rooting for her to win or not, Denise, in my opinion, is arguably one of the most deserving winners we’ve ever seen.  Immediately after Denise was crowned the champion, I spent some time with her on the red carpet to chat about her experience on the show.  Jump inside this article to see our entire one-on-one interview with Survivor‘s latest victor.

VIDEO Survivor: Philippines — Three Returning Players Officially Announced

August 22, 2012 03:30:19 by Ryan Haidet

This comes as no surprise to hardcore fans, but CBS has finally made it official by revealing the three returning players for Survivor: Philippines — Michael Skupin (Survivor: Australia), Jonathan Penner (Survivor: Cook Islands and Survivor: Micronesia — Fans Vs. Favorites) and Russell Swan (Survivor: Samoa).  Each of them is back for another shot at the $1 million grand prize against 15 newbies after they were medically evacuated in episode six of a previous season.  Unlike some of the choices for previous returning castaways, I really like this trio — especially Penner.  He is my favorite contestant of all time.  But if you’re having a tough time remember their names, we’ve got a great refresher inside.

VIDEO Survivor: Philippines — Meet The 15 New Castaways

August 20, 2012 04:00:40 by Ryan Haidet

What a crazy cast of characters!  CBS has revealed the 15 new castaways competing on Survivor: Philippines in hopes of claiming the $1 million prize.  Among the newbies include a former teen television star, a cancer survivor, a retired Major League Baseball player, a sex therapist, a tire worker who says one of his pet peeves is ice cream sprinkles(!) and nobody from the infamous Hantz family.  I know, that last one is tough to believe.  They will all be divided into three tribes — Tandang (rooster), Kalabaw (water buffalo) and Matsing (monkey) — as a trio of former players return to compete once again.  Those three contestants, who won’t be revealed until later this week, are all men who were medically evacuated during a previous season.  They will each be joining one of the three tribes.  If you can’t wait to learn who is among the three returning players, check out our previous story to see who they are.  We’re using this article to help get you learn more about the 15 newbies before the big 90-minute premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 19.

VIDEO Survivor: One World Interview — Alicia Rosa’s Controversial, Emotional Game

May 17, 2012 12:00:49 by Ryan Haidet

Alicia Rosa was one of the most controversial players on Survivor: One World — especially for one remark she made in which she negatively compared her fellow castaways to the special needs students she works with.  But despite her often nasty comments, Alicia came in fifth place.  Her game took a strange path as she started the game with a friendship with villain Colton Cumbie — and the two of them verbally attacked several tribemates throughout their time on the island together.  She then formed a tight bond with Greg “Tarzan” Smith, but flopped on their alliance and helped vote him out of the game, which she said was her biggest mistake.  Immediately following the live reunion show at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City on Sunday, May 13, Alicia talked with me on the red carpet and offered up all her thoughts on the game.  Read on to see the exclusive one-on-one interview to hear what she had to say!

VIDEO Christina Cha Survivor: One World Interview — ‘I Was Totally Playing The Game’

May 17, 2012 08:00:34 by Ryan Haidet

Christina Cha was one of the most clueless players on Survivor: One World.  Although she was an early target, Christina survived eliminations week after week after week.  She became the brunt of verbal attacks from Alicia Rosa and Colton Cumbie — the latter even telling her to jump in the fire so she could do herself a favor to get medically evacuated from the game.  Many players in the game even said Christina had no idea what game she was even playing.  Her fourth-place finish was very frustrating to watch because it seemed like she had just given up and was totally fine with getting ousted.  But during my exclusive red carpet interview with Christina immediately after the live reunion show on Sunday, May 13, she said that she was “totally playing the game” even though the show made it seem as if she had no clue what was happening around her.  To hear Christina’s entire interview, read on!

May 16, 2012 11:00:47 by Ryan Haidet

Chelsea Meissner was the country cutie on Survivor: One World who started off the season by catching several chickens with her bare hands.  She made it all the way to the final three, but didn’t receive a single vote from the jury, which ultimately gave Kim Spradlin the title of sole Survivor and the $1 million prize that goes with it.  Immediately after the live reunion show at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City, Chelsea talked with me on the red carpet and she explained how being on Survivor was right up her alley, discussed why she thinks nobody voted for her to win and offered her thoughts on Kim’s victory.  Read on to see my exclusive one-on-one interview with her!

May 16, 2012 07:10:38 by Ryan Haidet

Sabrina Thompson wound up in second place on Survivor: One World after receiving two votes from the jury.  Although she didn’t win, it was clear from the first episode she was clearly a motivated player with strategy in mind — and it all started when she helped form a solid alliance with a few of the women right off the bat.  Immediately following the live reunion show at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City, Sabrina joined me on the red carpet to talk all about her time in the game.  She explained why nobody really targeted eventual winner Kim Spradlin, discussed her thoughts on the final vote and said she was satisfied with the outcome.  Read on to watch the full exclusive interview!
