TV Notes: 'Cooleen' is cast away

Friday, August 11, 2000

From wire sources

Colleen Haskell, last of the Pagongs, got gonged on Wednesday's "Survivor," ensuring an all-Tagi competition for the show's big money.

The 23-year-old student from Miami Beach, last of the original eight-member Pagong tribe, received a fatal four eviction votes on the 11th episode of CBS's runaway summer hit. Three came from the usual suspects, a cutthroat Tagi cabal of sinister Rudy Boesch, even more sinister Richard Hatch and really sinister Susan Hawk.

Anyway, the Tagi alliance supposedly had earmarked fellow tribe member Kelly Wiglesworth for banishment because it didn't trust her anymore. But she won the week's "immunity talisman" by keeping her balance on a narrow wooden beam longer than any other contestant. The runner-up was Colleen, who said just before falling, "Am I getting booted off if I fall?"

Hey, lit majors, this is known as foreshadowing.

Colleen -- dubbed "Cooleen" on Sean's ballot -- now joins three other Pagong evictees on what eventually will become a decisive seven-member jury. On the two-hour Aug. 23 finale, the jury will vote on who wins the $1 million grand prize between two remaining contestants.

'SURVIVOR' DOC: It looks like "Survivor's" somewhat flaky doctor, Sean Kenniff, is about to play one on TV. According to Entertainment Weekly, the 30-year-old from Long Island, N.Y., will appear as a doctor, just like Joey on "Friends," on soap opera "The Guiding Light."

Kenniff will also be a guest physician on medical segments for Fox News and "Extra!" and plans to hit the med-school speaking circuit this fall. He's even got a medical thriller novel he's shopping around.

He told EW, "God forbid this is only a '15 minutes' thing for me."

KING WAS HERE: Author Stephen King was spotted this week in Butler, where he's apparently researching a book. Trooper Rob Lagoon said the author toured state police facilities, but aside from saying the book would be out in 2003, was mum about it. King was also seen eating at a nearby Red Lobster.
