Miami Marlins president David Samson will be on the upcoming season of Survivor, premiering next month. On Wednesday, they released introductory videos for the 18 contestants on the show, and Samson's is…well, amazing.
In the video, we learned that Samson has been watching Survivor since the first episode and that in an attempt to prepare for his tenure on the show, he bought some flint and nearly cut his little toe off attempting to start a fire. Samson also attempted to sleep outside and liked doing it in Florida – because he had lounge chairs, beer, and a television.
Samson closes his video with a quote about his strategy on the show: "you must meticulously assassinate one person after the next", which sounds pretty similar to his strategy running the Marlins. By the way, filming of the show took place in the middle of the summer – right around the trade deadline. No wonder the team did absolutely nothing of consequence after trading Ricky Nolasco to the Dodgers.
Survivor will premiere on February 28th, and I'm pretty sure we're going to be providing weekly coverage.
