The author of a controversial book alleging that Survivor producer Mark Burnett manipulated the vote in the original series has told a Canadian newspaper that two other reality series have also been rigged. "One has aired already and one is about to air," Peter Lance, author of The Stingray: Lethal Tactics of the Sole Survivor, told the Toronto Sun. "This is a significant ongoing scandal that is not limited to Survivor." Lance, a former ABC-TV newsman, declined to name the shows, saying only that they would be revealed in his next book, tentatively titled Survivorgate: The Inside Story of How the Biggest TV Game Show Was Rigged.
