Six in the Morning will have a special guest to talk about the premier of Survivor 3. He's a local minister who's been a semifinalist for the show - not once - but twice.

Tim Gray has six children - featured in his audition tape. He was one of 800 finalists for Survivor 3 and interviewed last summer. He didn't make the final cut - although producers asked him to try again for Survivor 4 - but he just learned he didn't make that show either.

Gray says he’ll try again, and keep it all in perspective. Tim Gray, Survivor Contestant: "Survivor is a game - it's not really surviving life - surviving life to me is a single mom trying to provide for her family a dad that's out of a job or trying to provide financially. Really what happened on September 11th - that's survival - that's reality."

Gray is getting ready to open a new church called the 'Life', which will begin services October 21st at Jenks Middle School.
