    New Survivor Betting Scandal?

    I just came accross this interesting article which was written prior to this season's survivor beginning. It concerned an offshored betting site that shut down betting on Survivor 7 due to many folks from Vancouver betting the maximum on one contestent who was later identified as living near Vancouver. The writer talks about Sandra and says if she does indeed win it could raise suspicions. I had not heard of this and now feel that this should be investigated to make CBS' claims of total secrecy believable. Sometimes a coincidence is not really a coincidence.

    This is old news. Also, the same thing happened with many bets placed on Matt and Jenna, the F2 last season. A similar situation occured with the Bachelor 2 - many bets originating from Aaron's hometown were placed on Helene, who turned out to be the winner.

    This isnt new-there may be a similar thread with cobwebs on it... Being a gambling man myself- this was the ONE spoiler that i latched onto... casino's dont take bet off the boards unless it is legally justified or compromised!
    I am willing to bet CBS investigates this- and that we havent heard the last about it...

    This may be old news, but it is very relevent now that Sandra has actually won.

    If indeed it's relevant, please dig up the original thread, so we don't have 2 of them discussing the exact same thing. Thanks!
