Survivor Vanuatu’s Lisa was a finalist for two other Survivor seasons, Amazing Race.
Someone at CBS really likes Lisa Keiffer, who was voted off Survivor Vanuatu last week after her alliance turned against her. She previously auditioned and then became a semifinalist for both Survivor Africa and Survivor Thailand, but didn’t end up on either season—and she almost didn’t make it this time, either. Additionally, Lisa was asked to audition for The Amazing Race. She tells TV Guide, “I made it to the semifinals for Survivor 3 and 5 and finally I got on. This time it was just a fluke. I sent in my video and made it to the semifinals and got rejected. About a month later, they had called me for The Amazing Race. I like that show as well, but not like Survivor. But I happened to be in L.A. one week visiting my son and it was when the 50 finalists for Survivor were in town. When they found out I was in L.A., the [producers] said, ‘Can you come in for a quick interview?’ That quick interview turned into a week and the next thing I knew, I was on Survivor.”
