Dan asked producers to eliminate him; was one of NBC’s Lost winners.
Straight guy Dan said on a radio show that “[t]here was a lot of fun partying–it was hysterical. I wish you guys could have seen it” but says that because of his friendships, he “walked into the producers office and said, ‘Guys, this is just wrong. I’m not going to do the show any more. I had fun for three days, I appreciate it, but I’m quitting,” the Windy City Times reports. The producers told him they would make sure he was eliminated, and says that’s why “it’s no coincidence that they put me up against two of the finalists, because those were his favorites at that time.” Dan was asked by an NBC exec to be on Bravo’s Boy Meets Boy because he’d won the second season of NBC’s Lost (remember that?). His NBC Lost bio says he once dated Punky Brewster herself, Soleil Moon-Frye.
