Los Angeles, CA - Famed trial defendant, Casey Anthony, has been selected by CBS Studios to be a contestant on the next season of Survivor. The popular reality television series puts people in a location, having them win challenges for food and luxuries, as well as immunity, then voting off people in an attempt to be the winner of the $1 million prize at the end.
“The producers of Survivor believe that Ms. Anthony shows what it takes to be a survivor, and we wanted to see how she would hold up against our competition. We think that she will be a welcome addition to the cast, and it could give her a break from dealing with the media over her trial and her time in prison for lying to the police. We welcome that sort of game play on Survivor and look forward to seeing how she handles this game,” the official CBS press release stated.
The concept of Survivor is placing people into tribes and keeping them isolated from society for 39 days. At the end, all the members voted out of the game once the tribes “merge” vote for the person they believe most deserving of winning the game. The game has produced some of the most memorable reality television stars during its time. The game rewards people for lying, cheating, stealing and backstabbing. These are some of the reasons that many people believe Ms. Anthony will be a good addition to the cast of the program.
When pressed for feedback, a few fans gave us their reaction to the news, on the condition of anonymity.
“I think that she fits. She’s a liar and she deserves to show how well she lies to a group who will be expecting deceit from everyone,” one woman said.
Another woman stated, “She should be rotting in prison for the rest of her life, not playing a game for a million dollars. I hope that she’s the first one voted out and that CBS rots in hell for casting her.”
A gentleman stated simply, “She’s hot. I can’t wait to see her in a bikini.”
Survivor will begin filming in September, with the episodes beginning in February 2012.
