Reality Star Likes Being A Nobody
Survivor Tom Westman gets the boot
Monday, March 15, 2010 17:16 GMTLONG ISLAND, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Being a big reality TV star doesnt last forever, and its best that way.
Last Thursday (Mar. 11), Tom Westman was voted off Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains. He was the winner of Survivor back in 2005 though, so that made this loss pretty painless.
Westman says getting the boot is small potatoes because his family, friends, and career are what really keeps him going.
Plus, the minor notoriety the show has given him gets annoying.
He admits, Theres almost a cringe factor. I dont want to be the guy that was on a reality show.
Westman actually prefers it when viewers dont recognize him so he can go about his daily business without interruption.
He explains, At first people come up to you but it dies really quickly. Its as if going on TV never happened. I like the anonymity.
Survivor airs Thursdays on CBS.
