along to poison his new mates against him! Just desserts, you say? Perhaps so, but there's no denying this scheming stud could stir the pot with the best of TV villains and look damn good doing it, too.

TVGO: How will we survive the rest of the season without you? Some of us only tune in to see Silas shirtless!
Silas: [Chuckles] That's sweet, man. That's unreal.
TVGO: Did you know you were doomed as soon as they switched tribes?
Silas: Oh, I had it handed to me, didn't I, buddy? I knew right from the get-go that it was the beginning of the end. I went with the two people that hated me the most, and I knew when I had that yellow [Boran] buff that it was over.

TVGO: Any chance you'll ever pose for Playgirl?
Silas: [Laughs] None of that! He's a good friend of mine and he's a very clever guy. But absolutely no connection there, no flirting on me.
I don't know if there's gonna be any Playgirl
in the future. My dad always said never say never, but that's something I don't think I'll ever do. That's just not my style, to be honest. That would be pretty darn funny I got a hairy butt, man. I don't know if you want to see that!
