Survivor : Palau casting scandal
Don't know if this is true or not, but I wouldn't put it past the producers of Survivor - Wanda Shirk, one of the first two people eliminated this season, has raised allegations that 7 contestants originally cast for the show were cut and replaced with professional models selected by the producers. The interview is online at tvguide.com (you need a subscription to their site to read it), or you can read an article on realitytvworld.com about the whole scandal, and how CBS is, of course, refuting her claims. In the article, CBS spokesperson Colleen Sullivan tells Reality TV World that "Wanda's allegation is simply untrue. I spoke with casting and not ONE modeling agency was contacted." So I guess it comes down to who do you believe, CBS or Wanda?
