    Burton Roberts: POSSIBLE SPOILER?!!

    I was over at Sucks (sorry for being at another site ) and saw this (it has been elsewhere also). I don't know how true it all is or if it will become relevant so I put it in a Spoiler thread. Here is the link: http://pub207.ezboard.com/fsurvivors...cID=6610.topic

    Basically, first of all Burton was on Eco-Challenge http://www.ecochallenge.com/fiji/teams/70.html, but under the name John Burton. The "big lie" was originally said to be by Jon, here is a "John". (I think his actual name is "John Burton Roberts".)

    There is more info further down the page on Infinium labs, where he worked (?) and some controversies with that. http://general.gamerfeed.com/gf/news/4263/ and http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NTEy
    Page 2 indicates he is a "Director for our infrastructure and software practice" at the Kovi group. http://www.kovigroup.com/sys-tmpl/faqaboutus/

    He certainly is well accomplished for someone at the age of 31. His background and interests are certainly an advantage on the game. As I said, I don't know how much stock to put in all of this; it could be nothing, or it could point to Burton as a manipulator, plant, or something else. If nothing else, I am going to look at him with suspicion for a while.

    This isn't the first time a previous MB show contestant has been on Survivor though. Wasn't Rudy on one of the eco-challenges?

    Yeah, I think Rudy was on one of the first ones, '96 or something.

    Then of course there's always Jeff Byers of Combat Missions and Eco Challenge. Right, Bravo?

    He didn't do so well for a "plant".

    Yeah I was glad to see him go; if you look at some of that stuff you can see where he got his attitude.
