Kathie Lee's No Survivor

Kathie Lee Gifford, you're off the island.

A poll to find out how audiences are relating to CBS's popular show Survivor asked viewers which celebrities would get kicked off the island first, if there were ever a celebrity version of the show.

Survivor puts men and women on an island for more than a month to see who survives the elements and each other. The island dwellers vote one participant off the island each week.

In a telephone survey commissioned by TV Guide, audiences were posed with a fictional list of participants that included Gifford, talk show hosts Regis Philbin and Rosie O'Donnell, the cast of the TV seriesFriends, professional wrestler The Rock and gonzo comic Tom Green.

Gifford was chosen by 44 percent of the panelists to be the first person voted off the island. Forty percent said they believed The Rock would win.

Ironically, O'Donnell placed second for both the person to get kicked off the island first - 21 percent- and the person who would remain until the end -- 23 percent.

The poll was of a random sample of 255 adults in all 50 states who have watched at least one episode of Survivor.
