January 26, 2006: CBSNews video of a pre-game press roundtable discussion about Nick, led by Jeff Probst, with Mara Reinstein (US Weekly), Paul Adler (TV Guide channel), Shawna Malcom (TV Guide), Dalton Ross (EW), Jarett Wieselman (In Touch). Transcript:

nickJeff Probst: All right, Jarett, give us your take on Nick.
Jarett Wieselman: I like Nick. I think I probably like Nick more than anyone else did.
Nick (pre-game interview): My name's, uh, Nick Stanbury. I'm 25, I'm from, uh, I live in Tempe, Arizona.
Jarett Wieselman: You know, it'll be interesting, because he had said to me that, you know, he was in a fraternity, and he was always the vice president of all the charities. 'I'm a really good number two guy, I'm not the leader.' So I mean, he's going into it sort of assuming that he's gonna need someone to latch on to. And, I don't necessarily know that any of the guys that are gonna be with him are gonna be the person for him to latch on to.
Jeff Probst: Well, and you're also assuming that we're going to stick with tribes of four for very long, which mathematically, we, we couldn't anyway.
Jarett Wieselman: So, it should be interesting to see how far he makes it, because he's another one who's a little bit vanilla, you know, he doesn't have a whole lot to talk about like Cirie does, you know. So it should be interesting.
Shawna Malcom: But I think he actually, seems anyway, that he has a strong work ethic. And that he would be the one that was willing to go out there, and build the fire, whatever would need to be done, that he would step up and do it. And that's valuable out there.
Dalton Ross: I think he's a mix of.... I think he's athletic, he's likeable, I think he has some smarts. So I think he's got a lot of good cards to play. I really think he does.
Jeff Probst: So I didn't get a big vibe from either of you guys, right now, on Austin or Nick. Did they not give you a lot?
Paul Adler: I had a really hard time getting a sense of Nick. He's a really nice guy. Would you really want to go hang and have a beer with him? Yeah, absolutely. He's smart, he's athletic. I don't really get it, otherwise. I don't know.
Dalton Ross: Can you think of a reason, though? I see him out there, and I can't think of any reason to get rid of Nick. I think he's doing well in the challenges, I like him.
Shawna Malcom: He works hard, Bob Dawg will get on people's nerves.

January 22, 2006: Transcript of Nick-specific footage from the TV Guide Channel " Survivor: Panama - Exile Island Preview" (featuring pre-game contestant interviews and Jeff Probst comments from circa Ep1):

"Danni Boatwright: Arizona salesman Nick looks like a challenge threat, but for now, his strategy seems to be all about togetherness.
Nick (pre-game interview): I would hate to be overly prepared, in a way. Hopefully there's someone on our tribe, maybe, that really knows what they're doing, which would be great. But it makes it more fun, you know, it's like you go through it together. Let's have some fun with it, um, rather than, um, one or two people really knowing what they're doing.
Jeff Probst: Is he athletic? Yeah. You know, is that worth much in Survivor? A little.
Nick (pre-game interview): I'll play my game. Whatever happens, happens."

January 9, 2006: Officially revealed as a contestant on Survivor: Panama - Exile Island on the Early Show.
