|Skupin: a second chance|
Fire up the Tiki torch and pass the Doritos. The 25th edition of Survivor begins tonight (CBS, Global, 8 p.m.).
The 90-minute opener will reveal three tribes, returning players and celebrities. Each tribe gets one returning player: Jonathan Penner (Cook Islands and Micronesia), Russell Swan (Samoa) and Mike Skupin (all the way back to Australia). All three were injured their first time out. Amazing to see Skupin, who fell into the fire and had to be evacuated, return 24 games later. He’s always been an odd omission from the All-Star editions–he was on-track to go deep in that early Outback edition.
The celebs are Lisa Whelchel, the former Facts of Life teen, and ex-San Francisco Giants’ star Jeff Kent.
