Greg Insco walked 2,200 miles from Cincinnati to Los Angeles in order to hand-deliver his Survivor video to casting director Lynne Spillman, and then he was rejected for being “too nice.” I’d make fun of him except it’s hard to mock someone who’s growing his hair out only so he can donate something to Locks of Love, and is hitchhiking his way back having refused offers for plane tickets to return home because he’d rather people give the money to charity. Despite being rejected, he’s still upbeat and says he has a plan B. Maybe that involves using something called the United States Postal Service.
