Contestant-related press and rumors
Date Story Source
January 17, 2003 - Entertainment Weekly article discloses he is a doorman at Belly, the same (Mike Boogie from BB2-owned) club frequented by a pre-S5 Sean Rector, in which Gabriel Cade is a bartender. CBS swears this is merely a "coincidence." Uh huh. - Entertainment Weekly.
January 14, 2003 - Bay Area paper lists him (along with Shawna and Roger) as a local contestant. Most insight into Shawna but includes a quote from Probst about Alex being a recovering alcoholic: "He's been 11 years in recovery, and he's a triathlete, which I think is the epitome of clean living. He's had a lot of life experiences, and he had a level head throughout the `Survivor' experience.'' - The Argus.
January 11-13, 2003 - EZ poster Laskrill mentions Shawna is dating a male S6 castmember (then edits out the post). Later, moderator MadBananaRush confirms ("100%") that Shawna is dating Alex Bell. - Survivor Sucks EZ board.
January 13, 2003 Manuel Mendoza's pre-game quotes and impressions:
- "Initial impression: Levelheaded."
- "Distinctions: Sober for 11 years. Triathlete. Does a good Matthew McConaughey impression. Has a crush on Survivor I's Kelly Wiglesworth."
- "Post-Survivor show-biz prospects: 'Living in L.A., I've come in contact with a lot of people who've been on TV and I'm not sure I want to be one of them. I hope I don't get a big head. I hope I get to just still be me.'" (umm, yeah, that explains why he works at Belly).
- Dallas Morning News.
January 11, 2003 - TV Guide (hard copy) synopsis: "Weakness: Gets grumpy when hungry." - TV Guide.
