“Survivor”: It’s all in the cards

POSTED BY STUART LEVINE

Survivor_5 If it’s Saturday night, then shuffle up and deal.

Yours truly was invited to a charity poker tournament at UCLA for the Scleroderma Foundation, a group that does its best to create awareness and raise funds for this nasty and debilitating autoimmune disease.

Playing their cards close to the vest were not one, not two but three ex-“Survivor” contestants — Alex Angarita, “Survivor: Fiji” (left); Cristina Coria, “Survivor: Cook Islands”  (second from right) and Bruce Kanegai, “Survivor: Panama” (right), pictured with exec director Brian Adams of the Scleroderma Foundation (not Bryan Adams of “Cuts Like a Knife” fame).

Typically, I lost early on a bad river beat but, more importantly, money was raised for a good cause … and we got to find out what former “Survivor” contestants do after their TV fame has come and gone.

With their torch on being a celebrity long ago flamed out, it was nice to see these folks use their Andy Warhol moments for such a good cause.
