Contestant-related press and rumors
Reality Blurred
February 2, 2009: Andy Dehnart of Reality Blurred blogging fame posts a late pre-game interview with Tyson. Among the highlights:

"Although his 'parents are big fans' of Survivor, Tyson said 'I didn’t pay that much attention to it before,' and was recruited (by a friend of a friend working in casting, apparently). He did the show because for the money—'I want to buy a bunch of sweet stuff,' Tyson said, although he added, 'I like the adventure, too'—and was unapologetic about wanting to spend the money on himself. 'I’m pretty good enough charity for myself, I think, so I’ll keep the money in my bank account.'"
Tyson's CBS S18 site bio
January, 2009: CBS gets around to putting up S18 content:

"Witty, charming and arrogant is how Tyson Apostol describes himself. This former pro-cyclist and swimmer believes that his natural athleticism, combined with his 'life of the party' personality, will get him far in he game. His favorite movie is 'The Jerk' and that’s how some people just might describe him.
     He compares his game strategy to that of some of the most entertaining castaways to ever play the game. Much like them, he is willing to do almost anything to win one million dollars, including implementing the use of lies and deceit to feed off the 'emotional weakness' of the other castaways. A Brigham Young University drop-out, he is actually very well traveled and skilled in street smarts, previously spending two years in the Philippines as a Mormon missionary, in addition to six years as a cyclist in Switzerland, Belgium and Austria.
    In many ways Tyson can be brash, egotistical and unapologetic but, oddly enough, he has no tolerance for 'know-it-alls' or individuals who lack common courtesy. In addition to, as he describes it, 'looking awesome,' his favorite hobbies are exercising and sunbathing. If he becomes the next sole Survivor, he plans to use all of the money for selfish purposes, starting with 'the most smoking motorcycle around.'
   Tyson currently resides in Heber City, Utah and his birthday is June 17."
