Survivor: Redemption Island Experience

We have a change in speakers for September.  Our new speaker is Mike Chisel '02.  

Out Wit, Out Last, Out Play. What does it take to become a contestant on one of the most popular reality game shows on TV and how do you succeed once you have been selected? Mike Chiesl '02 was a contestant on Survivor: Redemption Island. He will tell us behind the scenes information about the show and how his experience as a Marine helped him play the game.
