Source: Marlins President David Samson Will Appear As Contestant On CBS' "Survivor"
Marlins President DAVID SAMSON reportedly is "one of the contestants for the upcoming season" of CBS' "Survivor," according to Will Manso of Miami-based WPLG-ABC. A source said that Samson will be among "18 contestants in the new season, which debuts next month" after being filmed in the Philippines last summer. LOCAL10.com was "unable to reach Samson for comment," but it is "unlikely Samson could even comment on his participation since CBS will officially announce the contestants in a few weeks." Samson is "no stranger to endurance challenges," as he once "traveled to Hawaii to compete in an Ironman competition" and also "ran a grueling 52-mile double marathon for charity" (LOCAL10.com, 1/8).
