Dan, Thank you so much for your real help and advice! As a Survivor fan from the 1 episode, and applicant every season since, I have searched everywhere for tips and advice on how to get onto Survivor. No one else has provided such great information for us applicants who do not know what the casting direcors are looking for. If I had the information that you have provided 4 years ago, I would have known how to handle my phone interview and would likely have been cast. I won’t make the same mistakes next time! Thanks again! Dennis. BTW, I give you 10 stars for your podcasts and book!
