When it comes to the most in demand Survivor contestants for interviews, none even come close to Greg Buis. 12 years since his appearance on the first season of Borneo, Greg has obtained a cult like status amongst Survivor fans with numerous rumours surrounding his whereabouts in this time. And in this Survivor Oz exclusive, Greg finally opens up about everything from coconut phones, whether or not he and Colleen were ever together and his relationship with Jeff Probst and the entire Survivor production crew.
As a member of the Pagong tribe, Greg was seen as a ‘goofball’ with his various antics entertaining his tribe and make him a popular contestant on and off the show. Surviving to the merge, Greg soon caught the attention of eventual winner Richard, before being voted off as being seen as a threat and becoming the first ever jury member in the history of the show.
In our chat with Greg, he talks about why he has taken 12 years to do an interview about the show, what he has been doing since his time away from the show. his relationship with Colleen, the reception and cult status he has built, whether he and Jeff actually got along, his various antics with the production crew and messing with them, what colour THAT flying fish was, if B.B is still alive or not, eating rats, the reception when he got home, whether he has watched the show since, if he would ever return and everything to do with coconut phones.
