'Survivor' spoilers exposed as fake

The list of spoilers for Survivor Allstars has been proven incorrect.

The list - released on the internet in January - correctly predicted the first four vote-offs and named every subsequent eliminee up to the final two. In the most recent show, however, first Survivor winner Richard Hatch had his torch snuffed instead of Jerri Manthey, predicted by the list.

There are several theories about how the list managed to get it spot on for the first four episodes. The most popular says that the author used a method called 'vidcap analysis', freeze-framing previews of the show from future weeks to see who was around. Many believe that the information could have been easily guessed anyway; at the time of filming the show, a news article claimed that three of the castaways had been spotted together in a bar nearby.

Others suspect that the list was deliberately posted by executive producer Mark Burnett to throw fans off the scent.

Survivor Allstars airs Thursdays at 8pm on CBS.
