Minnesota native among contestants on NBC's 'Siberia'


A former Royalton resident who lives in North Hollywood who is among the contestants trying to survive the new NBC reality competition "Siberia," the St. Cloud Times reports.

Daniel Sutton, who was born and Royalton and attended St. Cloud State University, is among the 13 of the original 16 contestants who remain on the show, which kicked off last week.

According to his "Siberia" bio, as Sutton neared the completion of his degree in graphic design at SCSU, he was bit by the acting bug and moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream. In Hollywood, Sutton, 28, trained at the New York Film Academy and the Howard Fine Acting Studio.

In the show, the contestants battle the elements and each other as they try to survive the harsh wilderness in the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska. Those able to stick with the competition until the end of winter will split a $500,000 prize.

There's one other Minnesota connection on "Sibera" WCCO-TV sports anchor Mark Rosen told KFAN-AM that his son, Nick, is an assistant editor on the show.

Rosen celebrated the premiere of the show last week on Twitter:

The next episode of "Siberia" airs locally on KARE 11 Monday night at 9 p.m. CT.
