A fan who posted “Survivor” spoilers has stepped forward and revealed who fed him the information, TMZ.com reports. The leak comes from a contestant who has denied responsibility for the spoilers–Russell Hantz, the story reports.
Jim Early admitted that he published leaks about "Survivor: Samoa," and "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains," but said the information came from emails written by Hantz to Early.
TMZ received copies of the emails in which Hantz shared stories about the CBS reality show before the episodes aired, the story says. Early put the spoilers on the Internet via fan blogs.
Early said he came forward with the truth because Hantz has tried to deflect blame by pointing the finger at innocent cast members, according to the report.
