Jon hints he’ll be on All-Star Survivor.
In an interview with TV Guide, Survivor Pearl Islands scumbag Jon Dalton hints that he’ll be participating in Survivor All-Stars. Answering the magazine’s question about whether or not he’s a participant, Jon says, “I’m not allowed to say.” But then he says, “I’ve proven that it is pretty easy for me to eliminate Rupert [who is also rumored to be in Survivor: All Stars], so let’s see if I can go two for two.” However, Jon-haters who were looking forward to the all-star season need not pour bleach into their eyes quite yet: Jon’s statements don’t quite jibe with rumored cast rosters. Survivor Fever’s roster–which matches one published earlier by SurvivorNews.net and also shows how the 16 contestants are organized into three tribes–only shows two people from Pearl Islands participating: Rupert and Sandra, who’s listed as an alternate.
