Learning "The Facts Of Life" While Getting A Second Shot
The cast list has been announced for the upcoming season which starts soon. The Emmy Award-winning series. Survivor, will return for it's 25th season with a special 90-minute episode, Wednesday, Sept. 19 (8:00-9:30 PM EST) on CBS. On this list is a former child star of the 70s in Lisa Whelchel, who played "Blair" the snobby little rich girl on the television series "Facts Of Life".
But Lisa Whelchel is not the only star factor on this coming season of Survivor. Also slated is a former MLB MVP from the San Francisco Giants, Jeff Kent and today it was announced officially, what many of us had guessed months back, that the alumni returning will be Michael Skupin (season 2), Russell Swann (season 19) and Jonathon Penner (seasons 13/16).
Of the star factors, I don't underestimate any of them at all, especially Whelchel, as she has shown to me before a bit of tenacity in her personality. Personally, I am excited to see Michael Skupin is getting one more shot. I met Skup a few years back at a reality event (see slides below blog) and you couldn't meet a nicer guy anywhere! Swann is also a sweetheart and Penner definitely is fun to watch as well!
I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the new cast this season. From the CBS teaser video they look like a fun bunch.
So circle your calendars again for the 90 minute premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 19 (8/7c) on CBS, the start of Season 25, Survivor Philippines!
