Howard welcomed Jonny Fairplay (of "Survivor" fame) to the studio to promote the new "Fans vs Favorites" season of "Survivor" and immediately told him that he thought Jonny's lawsuit against Danny Bonaduce was totally unjustified. Jonny claimed he'd jumped on Danny's back before, and Danny didn't mind then. The next time, at the a reality TV awards show, he tried it again (explaining that he had no idea a repeat performance would be any different) and Danny threw him off.
Jonny complained that he had to leave for Micronesia to compete in "Survivor" a week after the incident without the help of his prescribed pain medication, leading Howard to ask about the rift between Jonny and Jeff Probst. Jonny said he once got in a fight with Jeff's brother at a "Survivor" after-party, and he and Jeff haven't gotten along since. Jonny went on to detail the "horrific" time he had during the rain-soaked new season despite having a "few tricks up his sleeve."
