Snow said she and her husband had never watched "Survivor" in the past, but she definitely had heard of the show.

"Are you kidding me? Every single one of our grandchildren and our other son and daughters are foolish over it," she said. "So it was some big excitement here, waiting until the nieces and nephews found out he was going to be on it."

Snow's parents and siblings watched the season opener last week as a family. Their "Survivor"-style party at brother Tom's house in North Yarmouth included "a real kind of native meal" that included chicken, pineapple, oranges and rice. Snow's nieces and nephews provided the decorations.

So far, Susan Snow said, her son has done "just like I expected him to do. He thinks everything through. He was plotting and planning how he was going to do it. So he had a plan. What it is, I have no idea."

Snow said it has been "hilarious" to watch himself on the show since it premiered Feb. 13.

"I love the show, but don't take myself too seriously," he said. "I fell jumping off the boat (in the first episode) and really wanted them to show it so my friends and family would laugh, and all that happened."

Snow said he had "a giant bash" on premiere night, but will watch the rest of the season more quietly, with his friends and family.

He said everyone he knows wants to know what happened and how he did on the show, "but it is so much more fun if you don't know. And fun for me to keep everyone in suspense."
