As Survivor Outlast in Africa began last month, the University of Pittsburgh students had the opportunity to meet one of the contestants from Survivor: Australian Outback.

 Amber Brkich, 22 a native of Beaver Pennsylvania made an appearance at Pitt to sign autographs from 2:00-4:00 pm on October 04, 2001. She also hosted a Survivor: Australian Outback trivia challenge for 10 contestants who were chosen before hand.

Brkich saw that one of the contestants kept cheating and told him he will not win anything.

“Cheating is never allowed”, said Brkich

The trivia challenge consisted of 40 questions from the shows. Two students got 38 questions right and had to face of in a sudden death matchup. A student calling himself Dave won the trivia challenge and won a Survivor: Australian Outback DVD and a certificate for $25. All contestants received a Survivor t-shirt for participating. The top 4 also received a DVD.

The winner had his picture taken with Brkich. As she signed autographs and talked with students, the Pitt Hockey Club was trying to get students interested in their club. The club had sponsored the event in getting Brkich to Pitt.
