Thursday, October 9, 2008

Listen up local reality show fans. The fall season of "Survivor: Gabon," which airs at 7 p.m. each Thursday, features Eagle Rock resident, Randy Bailey.

Prior to accepting the challenge of becoming a reality TV show star, Bailey worked as a wedding videographer. The "Survivor: Gabon" website lists his hobbies as scuba diving and marathon running.

According to Bailey's "Survivor: Gabon" biography, he has competed in over 100 triathlons, including the Hawaiian Ironman. The website also states that Bailey claims he "has not been off the couch in years."

In an interview for a TV Guide Channel special, "Survivor" host Jeff Probst remarked that he believed Bailey would go far in this year's game.

Bailey, who recently relocated to Eagle Rock from Plano, Texas, has an engineering degree from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn. He is also a private pilot.

So far, Bailey has made it through three eliminations on his quest for the $1 million prize.
