HOME > Survivor > Survivor: The Australian Outback

Ex-'Survivor' star Colby Donaldson joining 'Rachel Ray' daytime show

By Christopher Rocchio and Steve Rogers, 02/20/2007 

Move over The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, there's a new former Survivor: The Australian Outback castaway on daytime television -- Colby Donaldson.

Donaldson is joining Rachael Ray's Rachael Ray syndicated daytime show, Us magazine reported on its website Monday.  The 32-year-old former Survivor: All-Stars castaway will reportedly serve as a "content buddy" and give the culinary queen and viewers at home an idea of "what men really want."  He is also scheduled to do interviews and set visits for Entertainment Weekly, according to Us.

"Audiences first got to know me being myself on TV having a wild adventure. I'm thrilled to now be with Rachael Ray enjoying this daytime adventure with real people," Donaldson told Us.  "I love hanging out with Rachael and the food perks are pretty great too! It's good to know my days of eating bugs are over!"

During his Tuesday, February 20 appearance, Donaldson will attempt to use hidden cameras to "prove his theory that chivalry is not dead."  The assignment is a follow-up to a "Girl's Guide to Guys" segment that aired on Rachael Ray's January 31 broadcast.

Donaldson finished second to Tina Wesson on Survivor: The Australian Outback and was the seventh contestant to voted out of Survivor: All-Stars.  Originally from Christoval, TX, Colby was a self-employed custom auto designer and builder living in Dallas before he was cast on Survivor.  He has since landed guest appearances as television shows including HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, The CW's Reba and NBC's short-lived comedy Joey, and is also a spokesman for Schick Razors.
