Lillian plans to earn money speaking.

Lillian plans to earn money speaking.
Survivor Pearl Islands cast member Lillian Morris lost her job to be on the show, and now says she has “kids that need to go to college, bills to pay, just like anybody else.” So, instead of getting a real job, Lillian is trying to “milk this as much as I can,” hiring two agencies to represent her. According to The Cincinnati Enquirer, she “probably will charge $5,000 to $10,000″ for speeches, and her reps “are actively looking for endorsement and speaking deals.” Lillian says her pitch is simple: “Basically, I introduce myself as a survivor. I usually talk about the adventure of it, about taking that chance.” Next month, look for Lillian to auction off her delusions of everlasting fame on eBay.
