CBS just announced 15 of the 18 castaways who will compete against each other in Survivor season 25, which includes Facts of Life star Lisa Whelchel!
"I pursued it," Whelchel, best known for playing Blair Warner on the beloved '80s sitcom, says about being cast on the long-running show. "I had a friend of mine make a little iPhone video and put it on my Twitter account and asked people to re-tweet it, and start a viral campaign to get me on the show."
