Marlins President Finds Something He Might be Good At: TV’s Survivor

If this report is correct, then David Sampson — president of the Miami Marlins — should be fired by ownership. Any minute he’s spending not figuring out how to get more fans to games is a minute wasted. But, if this is where Samspon feels his future lies, then, so be it:

Local 10 has learned that Marlins team president David Samson is one of the contestants for the upcoming season of Survivor.

According to a source, Samson will be one of 18 contestants in the new season, which debuts next month.

CBS has announced that the latest season was filmed in the Philippines last summer, but they have not made any official announcements on the contestants.

Local 10 was unable to reach Samson for comment.  The team is in the middle of its offseason.  According to our source, it’s unlikely Samson could even comment on his participation since CBS will officially announce the contestants in a few weeks.

I’ll update once CBS or Sampson confirms or denies.
