Greg disses The Early Show.

Greg disses The Early Show.
Greg turned down an interview on CBS’ morning show, becoming the first booted cast member to not appear on the Bryant Gumbel-hosted program. Instead, the show brought back Ramona to talk about Survivor. According to The New York Post, “Contestants aren’t required to grant press interviews – but if they do, they must appear first on “The Early Show….” Guess that means we’ve seen the end of Greg and his coconut phone.
+ plus: Did CBS give away the final four survivors? The intro to Wednesday’s show had a shot of four people at tribal council; many think these are the last four on the island. Survivor Sucks has the details and a possible spoiler photo (don’t click those links unless you want to know).
