LOS ANGELES (AP) - Mark Burnett isn't sure if contestant Russell
Hantz was spilling "Survivor" secrets.

The "Survivor" executive producer said during a teleconference Thursday that he had no idea if Hantz, the 38-year-old schemer
featured in the "Samoa" and "Heroes vs. Villains" editions, leaked information about the CBS reality TV competition.

Hantz, who also stars in the upcoming 22nd season of the show,
was accused of providing several plot points about the show, including the elimination order of contestants, before it aired, to a man posting on the "Survivor Sucks" message board, according to
a Daily Beast report released last week.

"Survivor" producers filed a lawsuit against the poster, Jim Early, last year but later dismissed it.

A message posted on Hantz's Facebook page last week cautioned to
"never believe what you read."
