Survivor - Actress Lisa Whelchel Heading Into The Wild For Survivor

The Facts Of Life star Lisa Whelchel is heading into the wild as a contestant on U.S. reality series Survivor.
The 49 year old, who played wealthy Blair Warner on the popular American sitcom, will join 17 other castaways on a remote island in the Philippines on the show's upcoming 25th season, set to premiere on 19 September (12).
The actress will fight to be the last one standing, and the mother of two, who has always been a fan of the programme, cannot wait for the challenge after campaigning for the chance via Twitter.com.
She tells Entertainment Weekly, "I've watched it from the very first episode, and had Survivor parties with my family. A friend of mine said, 'Let's just film a little iPhone video of you and you can put it on your Twitter and ask all your followers to retweet it. And maybe they'll (the producers) contact you and know you want to be on the show.' And that's what happened!"
Also competing for the $1 million (£625,000) grand prize is retired American baseball player Jeff Kent.
