Survivor 2 production cards reveal biographical details, character roles.
Small cards featuring photos and descriptions of each contestant on Survivor 2 have been published on the Survivor Sucks message board. According to the post, the cards were used by the camera operators “so they would know who each survivor was, and so they could pick out the more interesting points from them.” The cards include both biographical and character information, some of it potentially inflammatory. For example, Kimmi is listed as “Sexy; slutty; playfull, a real tease,” Keith’s says he has “an inflated sense of self,” and Elisabeth’s card says, “She will be America’s sweetheart.” Biographical information lists Michael Skupin as “38 yrs. Dad. Sales.,” Jerri is a “Struggling Actress,” and Jeff Varner’s says, “34 yrs. Bisexual. Professional Web Project Manager.”
