Silas Gaither in Hollywood: “I know God wants me to be in L.A.”
Silas, who says Survivor Africa was “survivor of the mediocre” and is annoyed that Ethan “was very weak” and “never won one challenge” (which isn’t true), is pursuing a career in Hollywood. His acting lessons have yet to pay off, though; he says Hollywood–where “God wants [him] to be”–is run by a “small circle” of “all the powerful producers. It’s composed of all the powerful directors. And they basically run the show.” While they run the show, Silas spends time auditioning and working on his web site.
+ plus: Survivor 2’s Alicia Calaway may work for channel 5 in New York as a health and fitness reporter.
