February 21, 2001

In hindsight, eating larva on Survivor must seem like a pretty trivial challenge to Stacey Stillman. The former reality show contestant is now facing a US$5 million countersuit, filed against her by CBS. The claim against Stillman is for damages resulting from breach of contract, extortion, defamation and disparagement.

As reported in RealScreen Plus on February 7, Stillman is suing CBS, Viacom, the Survivor Entertainment Group and Survivor producer Mark Burnett for allegedly rigging the contest.
