The4Kingdoms at Sucks

Following this, The4Kingdoms posts the following biographical info:
"For the record Earl may be going by the name Blair. Earl could be a nickname. Earl/Blair same person if their ends up being a Blair on the show instead of an Earl. Though he is going by Earl when on the show, they may credit him as Blair."

And (from Earl's MySpace):
- Hometown: Kansas City (currently living in Santa Monica)
- Graduated from University of Washington - Seattle Campus in 1995, with a degree in Business Administration/ Marketing, and a minor in Econ.

December 17, 2006: Jeff Probst's voiceover from the Survivor: Fiji preview (replete with actual contestant photos, as far as we know) that aired during the Survivor: Cook Islands reunion show:

Coming in the new year... Survivor turns the tables on two tribes, as one lives the life of luxury, while the other is left with virtually nothing. For the first time, there will be 19 new Survivors. This diverse cast, with lifestyles ranging from a Harvard-educated lawyer to a once-homeless street performer, will be forced to battle each other more fiercely than ever before. Crawling with thousands of deadly sea snakes, Exile Island will be more treacherous than ever. This time, two immunity idols and a twist will drastically complicate the game. And one of the most controversial decisions ever made by a Survivor will have America talking. Who will outwit, outplay and outlast all the others? Join us next time, for the premiere of Survivor: Fiji."
