Another famous name added to Survivor Guatemala cast

The Detroit Free Press has a detailed report today on the possiblity that yet another well-known person has joined the cast of Survivor Guatemala. (Once again, if you’re easily freaked out by casting spoilers, go outside and play now.)

The person in question is currently a land developer, but Gary Hogeboom used to be a quarterback in the NFL, and also played for Central Michigan. The 47-year-old “played in 10 NFL seasons with three teams, including the first six with the Dallas Cowboys, who drafted him in the fifth round in 1980. He finished with 9,436 yards, 49 TDs and 60 interceptions in 79 games,” according to the Detroit Free Press.

The paper followed up on casting rumors at True Dork Times, which is currently identifying six contestants–including two previous Survivor contestants.
