This Wednesday, Survivor 2012 Philippines premieres just ahead of the Big Brother 14 finale.
As most of you know, the season will include several familiar names, including an athlete, a former child actress and three former contestants who were taken out of the game for medical reasons.
If you want to get ahead of the game and get to know the new castaways, CBS, of course has up videos from all the contestants. One of the contestants I’m most interested in is Lisa Welchel, from TV’s The Facts of Life. In her video, which I’ve shared below, she talks about her life after the sitcom and tells us that she was not recruited to be on Survivor. She said she had a friend make a video of her on her iPhone and then she sent it out into the Twitterverse as a campaign to get her on the show. And it worked.
