Take this for what it’s worth, but a leading “insider” site about all things “Survivor” reports that one of the contestants in the upcoming season will be none other than Lisa Whelchel, aka Blair from “Facts of Life.”
The site also reports that this year there will be three tribes with six members on each and a returning “Survivor” veteran in each of the groups.
The site-survivorfever.com-states that according to show insiders, former players Jonathan Penner (Cook Islands, Micronesia), Russell Swan (Samoa) and Mike Skupin (Australian Outback) will all return to the fall season of the show, and some well-known names will be in the mix this time around as well. “Facts of life” star Lisa Whelchel, former LA Dodger Jeff Kent and a former Miss Teen USA contestant Angelia Layton will all be looking to outplay each other in the new edition.
CBS is expected to officially reveal the new cast in the near future.
