Elisabeth Hasselbeck talks about her 'Survivor' experienceLong-time 'Survivor' (Thurs., 8PM ET on CBS) fans know that Elisabeth Hasselbeck appeared on the show in season two, back in 2001 when she was Elisabeth Filarski. But that's a very different person from the one we see on 'The View' (weekdays, 11AM ET on ABC).

Back then, Hasselbeck was a 23-year-old shoe designer for Puma, and actually had an undiagnosed medical condition. "It's ironic, because I had to go to the Australian outback and literally starve to actually start feeling better, and realize that all my symptoms prior to 'Survivor' were undiagnosed Celiac disease," she said. "'Survivor,' though it almost killed me, ended up truly saving my life."

Ok, but what is up with that wild-woman teeth baring in the middle of this video? Maybe she merged with a Tasmanian Devil while she was there.

Watch the video after the jump.
