September 5, 2003 "I have several plans. Number one, my philosophy is DTA - don't trust anybody. Like, a lot of people forget that this is a game, and I, you know, fully intend to remind myself on a daily basis that it is a game. I've been preparing for this. Like, you know, once I knew I was going to be a Survior, like uh, I went, I became PADI certified skin diver. I've been uh, running, uh, at running canyon on a daily basis, I've been fattening up, I’ve been on the uh, crappy food. Oh, I plan on being the first survivor to have sex on the island, hopefully with another person. No, I'm looking for a, how do the French say, ménage-e-trois? I’m looking for a ménage-e-cuatro, or cinco, or... I don't know, I don't speak French, I just kiss it. But uh, yeah, no, I’m planning on loving the ladies, and the guys will like me because I give them scraps." - pre-game video profile
August 28, 2003 "Originally from Danville, Virginia, Jon Dalton attended George Washington High School followed by college at Virginia Polytechnic Institute in Blacksburg. After college, he moved to Washington, D.C. and Portland, Oregon before settling in Los Angeles. He is currently single and most recently worked as a senior art consultant for the Tamara Bane Gallery. He previously worked as a production assistant for pro-wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper, and also worked in radio ad sales and phone sales. His three favorite hobbies are girls, music and television. He describes himself as sharp, quick and amazing. He is most proud of being the first person in his family to go to college and leave his hometown. His favorite sport is college football. His hero is Hugh Hefner. He believes he's a perfect candidate for SURVIVOR: PEARL ISLANDS because he claims he is "smarter than the average bear" with great organizational skills, leadership ability, has a strong work ethic and doesn't leave things unfinished. His birth date is March 11, 1974." - Official CBS bio
August 11, 2003 EZ poster Sweeper comes up with a potential contestant:
Contestant - LA Art Gallery Employee
I know of a guy who works at Robert Bane Editions ( who just got back from being a contestant on Survivor. A friend of mine works with him at the gallery. He doesn't know much about the game but was handpicked by producers when they saw him pumping gas one day in LA. Apparently, he's kind of a know-it-all that likes to "drop names." Sounds like a real hateable guy. He's in his early thirties. Didn't find out if he came back having lost weight or what. But I'm going to keep prodding. I'll try to find out his name too.

...and later (on 8/20/03):
Talked to my friend again
I talked with my friend last night. Apparently, they have been "warned" not to talk about Survivor any more because the leak has gotten back to CBS and they are not happy that this participant has blabbed. My source seems pretty worried that if he/she gives out any more morsels of info, that she/he could be busted (whatever that means), alas, he/she won't give up names or even give me any notion of the contidion of the guy. More than anything, this tells me that the contestant from the art gallery is a sure thing.
