Silas was good for a laugh in Survivor Africa. He had a bizzarre team building method. He gathered all the people who didn't want to do anything, and convinced them to stick together and vote out the people who were working. The strategy was doomed to failure because they would have eventually run out of food and died. Before he could get that far, he was introduced to the first tribe mix-up in Survivor history. In the tribal council before the mix-up he tells Jeff Probst that nothing is for-sure in the game. He must not have believed his own words, because he is completely thrown.
It's not really any wonder that he's never been successful in his attempts to become an actor, because he didn't show any redeaming quality when he was on Survivor.
