Could someone have actually spoiled an entire season of
Survivor? That was the question everyone was asking back in
January, 2003, an entire month before the season premier of
Survivor: The Amazon.
On January 9th, I started an Internet message board thread
under the assumed alias of "ChillOne," and debriefed my
intelligence, "would-be" confidential information that I
uncovered while vacationing in the Brazilian Amazon,
including contestant names, game dynamics, location
details, and Tribal Council "boot order." In that report, I
named Matt Von Ertfelda and Jenna Morasca as the two
finalists and pointed to Jenna as the player who was better
liked of the two, providing a tantalizing hint of a
possible final outcome!
Over the next four months, my information would be under
the microscope; picked apart and analyzed piece-by-piece by
thousands, while at the same time gaining national
attention. In the end, ChillOne became one of the most
talked about, if not the most talked about, informants in
Survivor spoiling history.
