SNN is reporting that a Seattle attorney may be on the new Survivor.
“Information we have received placed him in Seattle, Washington. Willard (apparently the proper name variation) has been described as a fit and friendly attorney in his mid 50’s, about 5’9”, 175 lbs, gray hair, and wearing spectacles.
A senior attorney at his Seattle law firm, Seligmann, Beckerman & Flaherty, confirmed to us by telephone that Willard was indeed out of the country from late October to early December, the same time frame of the filming of Survivor 10 in Palau.”

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette also featured the following article on contestant Ian Rosenberger:
Amber, Jenna and Dolly, move over. An Economy man, a recent graduate of Penn State University, may be on the next round of “Survivor.”
Fan Web sites for the granddaddy of the reality shows list Ian Rosenberger as a contestant on the next season of “Survivor” on the tropical paradise of Palau in the Pacific. That round of play will feature 20 contestants rather than the standard 16 or 18 and start airing in February.
Reached on his cell phone yesterday, Rosenberger declined comment. CBS offices were closed for the holiday but the network typically introduces participants on its morning news program and then forbids contestants from discussing the show before or while it is airing.
This much we know: In April 2003, Rosenberger was elected undergraduate student government president at Penn State. In a later speech to incoming freshmen, he told students he lives on a small horse farm with his parents and younger sister. Rosenberger was expected to graduate from Penn State with degrees in animal science and education.
Various campus stories said Rosenberger was associated with 20 organizations, including the Outing Club, Thespians (he directed a production of “Jesus Christ Superstar”) and Essence of Joy choir. A “Survivor” fan gossip site describes Rosenberger as charming, charismatic and very tall — he told freshmen he stands 6 feet, 8 inches tall.
He concluded that impassioned talk to campus newcomers this way: “Folks, these next years are the ones you’ll look back on when you’re 80. Live this time with an urgency to, as they’d say in ‘Dead Poets Society,’ to suck the marrow from this life. Play hard, think deep and dream big out there …”
CBS has ordered two installments of “Survivor” to air during the 2005-06 season. The Mark Burnett-produced series’ latest edition, “Survivor: Vanuatu,” concluded with Chris Daugherty winning the $1 million prize.
