Reality star and professional wrestler Jonny Fairplay at Wrestling Superstar Showdown
SAULT STE MARIE, MI – Jonny Fairplay, “Survivor: Pearl Islands” reality television participant and professional wrestler, will host an interview segment called "The Red Carpet with Jonny Fairplay" during the Kewadin Casinos Wrestling Superstar Showdown event on Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. in the DreamMakers Theater.
Jonny has excelled as one of the most memorable faces of reality TV and professional wrestling. Following his first appearance on the CBS reality show “Survivor”, Fairplay signed a groundbreaking contract with Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling, combining for the first time the reality-television and wrestling genres. He went on to win an ESPY award for best non-sports sports moment by being body slammed over the top rope by Chicago Bears All-Pro player, Brian Urlacher.
In the reality genre, Jonny has continued to deliver some of the most memorable moments on television. On the Celebrity Poker Showdown in 2005, he "Fairplayed" his longtime friend Trishelle Canatella by eliminating her from the game. On A&E's Inked he was kicked out of the tattoo parlor. On Reality Stars Fear Factor, he ousted Jonathan Baker and Victoria Fuller and went on to become the first contestant in the history of the show to return after his eviction to serve as co-host. All these notable appearances have resulted in Jon receiving “The Most Memorable Reality Star in the History of Reality Television” honor at the Really Awards on Fox Reality.
Tickets are on sale now for $42.50, $32 and $25. On Friday, November, 23, there will be a special question and answer session for $20 which includes hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.
