The only time on Survivor you ever want to receive votes is at a final Tribal Council. At least that was the case until this past spring, when former players were put in the somewhat awkward position of publicly campaigning for fan votes to play Survivor: Cambodia—Second Chance (which debuts Sept. 23 on CBS). And some players were willing to go that extra mile to make sure those votes came in.

So I asked the cast out in Cambodia the day before filming began: What was the most shameless thing you did to pander for votes? Some posted bikini shots. Another went streaking half-naked through Hollywood. Another offered free extra credit to his students to promote his candidacy on social media. And yet another did something that … involved me!

To hear the cast come clean — and see some bonus exclusive footage of them in the game — click on the video at the top of the post. And for more Survivor scoop (including a new exclusive video every day) follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
