She came. She saw. She smooched Jeff Probst. If we didn’t know better, we would say that was the main reason Sarah Dawson went on Survivor: Philippines — to plant a big fat wet one on the host. It was certainly a Survivor first and Probst looked both taken aback and amused by the aggressive move. We already got Jeff’s take on the situation, so now it is time to check in the with the kisser as opposed to the kissee. Dawson joined us on this week’s edition of the InsideTV Podcast to discuss what we didn’t see during the big smooch, as well as why she pulled Abi-Maria’s hair and did not out Jeff Kent as a baseball player. She also tells us who is NEXT on her kiss list! However, Dawson’s not alone. She is joined by Dana Lambert, whose body broke down on her and forced her to quit the game. Dana tells us exactly how bad she was, as well as what was wrong with her and how long she had to stay in a hospital after. She also says Dawson and Katie driver her bonkers on the island. (Shocker!)
And that’s not our only interview of the podcast. In fact, it’s the mere appetizer for the main course! The man who plays Merle on The Walking Dead, Michael Rooker, stops by, and the conversation is about as off the rails as you would expect a conversation with Michael Rooker to be. Rooker tries his best to convince me that Merle is not a racist and is one of the most swell people you’ll ever meet in your entire life. I’m inclined not to believe him. Then, Jessica Shaw and I discuss NBC’s own post-apocalyptic drama, Revolution. Does this series have what it takes to break the seemingly endless cycle of one-season-and-done science fiction network dramas (RIP: Surface, Invasion, Threshold, The Event, Flash Forward, Alcatraz, Terra Nova, etc…)? I present my list of what I think the show is doing right and wrong.
