have several plans. Number one, my philosophy is DTA - don't trust
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."

poster Sweeper comes up with a potential contestant:
|Contestant - LA
Art Gallery Employee
I know of a guy who works at Robert Bane Editions (rbeditions.com)
who just got back from being a contestant on Survivor.
A friend of mine works with him at the gallery. He doesn't know
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
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.
