Survivor's Denise Martin is a Liar

Survivor's Denise Martin is a Liar

Survivor: China‘s lunch lady contestant Denise Martin may not have won the $1 million prize but her sob story about being demoted from lunch lady to janitor during Sunday’s finale earned her $50,000 on behalf of producer Mark Burnett.

Now, Nancy T. Lane, the superintendent of the Douglas Public Schools in Douglas, Mass., is saying that Denise lied to America. Apparently Denise had been promoted, not demoted, from lunch lady to janitor per her request.

“Yeah, I watched my own jaw drop when she said that, because it’s absolutely not true,” Lane told EW. “I can empathize, having been a working mother. It’s tough to work those night shifts. But she took the job; that’s the job she took leave from [to do Survivor]. If she wants to go back to the day shift, she should apply when one comes open… It’s difficult to grasp. We did nothing but encourage her. She took leave for almost three months, she was given additional times off when ever she needed it. Now she says this on national TV…. Douglas is a nice little town. Everybody was rooting for her, the local paper was bending over backwards with positive articles. Then to have it end this way. Talk about a letdown.”

Press Release: Mrs. Denise Martin
December 17, 2007
Douglas Public Schools

On the “Survivor China” television program that aired on December 16, 2007, Mrs. Denise Martin, an employee of the Douglas Public Schools, stated that she was demoted from her position as a cafeteria worker upon her return from taping the show. This statement is false. In fact, Mrs. Martin held a full-time position as a custodian prior to her participation in the series, and she returned to this same position upon her return from China. Mrs. Martin was granted – at her request – an unpaid leave of absence so that she could participate in the “Survivor” program. We were pleased and excited to support Denise, and have enthusiastically cheered her on throughout the duration of the show.

Although Mrs. Martin was a cafeteria employee prior to her selection as a contestant, she asked to be considered for a promotion to full-time custodian, and was promoted to this position on March 30, 2007. This promotion came with additional benefits and a higher salary. Following her leave, she then returned to this same position.

Regretfully, the Douglas Public School District was inaccurately portrayed as failing to be accommodating to an employee during what the District viewed as a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity. This is far from the case. On the contrary, we granted all requests made by Mrs. Martin so that she could participate in the “Survivor” series. Since Mrs. Martin was on an approved leave, her position was held open for her, and she returned to this same position upon her return from China. As a District, we make every effort to support our employees, and will continue to do so.

    i think denise is t telling the truth. Wouldn’t be the first time someone in power lied because they didn’t like looking bad. Just saying…

  • Callie

    People you need to relax. It was a game on a television show. The guy that just won the million dollars lied more then Denise ever did! The game is made up of lies, cheats and the like, that’s the type of entertainment that we all watch Survivor for. Denise was playing up to the other Survivors trying to grasp at anything to stay in the game so she mentioned her job. Key words here are GAME!! The school district needs to relax too.

  • SkankyHO

    That woman looks straight up FUG. WTF who has a mullet in 2007. She must be a Hick.

  • thegamingamine

    Thats a women…Seriously!

  • thegamingamine

  • SAMMA

    ITA with Jennigirl. I am sure that Jeff and CBS checked out Denise’s story BEFORE giving her the money.

  • margie

    wow i wonder if that is true!!?!?

  • Ava

    I just wanna know one thing: is Dennis going to take that 50 k and buzz cut that mullet. I mean, it’s 2007. Let’s focus on the more serious issues, people. Who cares if she’s a lunch lady or a janitor???? Don’t they all pay s*itty??

  • Marieme

    Denise has always struck me as a snake on the show. She said and did anything to appease everyone to stay in the game. She did not hesitate to stab others in the back to get what she wanted. I really do believe shs lied. Take the check back, Mark! Her whole family should be run out of town for lying!

  • You/Me

    Um, the school considers it a promotion going from lunch lady to janitor? WTF kind of school is that??
    I say she keep the 50K because if Mark wasn’t smart enough to check it out first then boo on him.
    And the school should quit using her to get their name in the news!

  • Lauren Gail

    That is one ugggglllllyyyy she man.

  • tko1992

    Denise is a really great person. She didn’t lie or cheat during the game. What makes you think she did after the show? When she came back, she told me that the school hadn’t kept her in the lunch position because of her being a distraction. I believe the school is playing CYA and Denise is telling the truth.

  • patty

    She didn’t say it while taping the show as part of the game, she said it on the LIVE reunion show. There was no time to check her story before Mark Burnett decided to give her the 50 grand.

    It was considered a promotion because it is a higher salery and better benefits, did you even read the article?

  • Callie

    Ok, didn’t know it was said on the reunion show – I did hear her remark that she was only making $7.00 an hour when talking to Amanda. Still so what – if we are going to go after every person that lies on television then it’s going to get pretty busy out there. Someone made a good point – going from lunch lady to janitor is a promotion? Anway there are more serious issues out in the world – a mullet is not one of them though. Either is someone remarking as Denise did.

  • Willow

    I believe that the school district is absolutely playing CYA. Lunch lady/janitor same diff. I wouldn’t be so quick to throw Denise to the sharks.

  • Bunny

    Denise only ended up as one of the final four because she would vote which ever way the other three told her to vote. Not once when she had a chance to make a difference did she take it. She may have been used and at the end dismissed when they no longer needed her, but she had to know her place and it was not going to be in the final three.

    Now did she lie about her job or is this the way she sees it or a bit of a pitty me game. Either way she ends up with a nice check. Which is a drop in the bucket for a TV show and make them sound like they care.

    I did find it funny as how angry she got by not winning-did she really think she had a chance going into it? Had she watched the show?

  • Peaches B

    I live in Douglas and know many of the facts here.

    Denise is not lying. The school is trying to keep from looking like the bad guys here. The “promotion” that Denise was offered before she left….the job did not open up until over the summer. One of the janitors passed away, the job did not become available while she was still in town. If you search the classified ads for the Worcester Telegram and Gazette, they were advertising for the janitor’s job while Denise was filming the show. She left town in March with the understanding that they would hold her job open for her, the school said they would and then changed their mind. After she came home she applied for the janitor’s job.

    Promotion? She went from working a full time job during the hours her daughters were in school to working a part time job at night and not being able to put her kids to bed. I would not call that a promotion.

  • TERRY FORD

    Virginia read this article let me know what you think. Pissed me off.
    I guess she just wanted the money.

    She may have told her job story on the reunion show but Jeff knew about it before hand. He was the one that brought it up knowing all of the facts. Giving her the money was not an out-of-the-blue act. It was planned by the producers in advance. If her story was false, fact checking by CBS would of found that out.

    There is NO WAY that CBS would give that kind of money for that reason if it were false. They will get taken for a ride from now on.

    Guys, it’s the Nancy T. Lane, the superintendent of the Douglas Public Schools, job to make the school system look good. I use to work in the public school system and all the top administrators were horrible liars. It’s all business/ politics but I don’t believe Lane. I think that Denise was forced into the position to retain her job but I think that her sob story shouldn’t have earned her 50,000. She already earned more than everyone but the final three and james.

    Hey, assuming it wasn’t a staged by the show event as a lot of ‘reality’ tv is, and in which case (it ain’t like it’s the news, so ho hum) let’s give her the benefit of the doubt. If she didn’t know about it before hand, she didn’t know about the fifty thousand and thus she didn’t have any motivation to lie. Even if she was angling for a new job, so what! She and her family don’t have a lot. That much is true. And, sadly, there isn’t a lot of opportunity in North America to rise above your ‘class’ these days. It’s her only chance to better her family circumstance in the foreseeable future. Also, it’s easy to say something not exactly factual in the moment without lying and because there is no clarification time, it can’t be corrected in the moment. We’ve all done it. It’s part of communication. And, the school board does have motivation to lie as others have pointed out and they may not be lying either. It may have been miscommunication.

  • Jessica

    For a minute I thought everybody had forgotten that this is the game of SURVIVOR we’re talking about, not Monopoly (until I read on). The idea that she played Mark Burnett at his own game just means to me that she should have got a million. I always respected Denise’s character in Survivor China. Her hairdo is her perrogative and I respect that she feels comfortable enough in her own skin to wear it. I’m quite certain she knows that she is not Ms. America… and I don’t think that at this point in Denise’s lfe… being rejected from society her entire life… that she really cares about opinions. Some of you obviously need to grow up!

  • luckyL

    She should use some of that money to hire a stylist

  • patty

    Well if the school board is telling the truth then they would have written documentation of her “requesting” the promotion and/or their agreement to keep her in her persition as a lunch lady. So it should be pretty easy to see who is lying if it ever came down to “proving” anything.

  • patty

    I meant position, can’t spell today lol

  • bataglio

    - and a lezzie

  • Willow

    I am going to support Peaches B’s comments 100%. I don’t live in Douglas but I do live nearby and for certain the school districts lie. Over and over again I have seen parents backed into positions where they are forced into agreements with the districts because no other choices are left open to them. I would also agree that Jeff knew some, if not all, of the paticulars prior to the $$ award to Denise. I believe the district was embarrased and coereced Denise into a public statement in order to smooth the districts ruffled feathers and for her to keep her job.
    She played a pretty straight up game in China. A few stratigic errors, but she certainly wasn’t ‘snakey’ or deliberately mean or disrespectful. She should keep the $$ and I hope she can get clear of the school districts thumb. She can still keep her head high.

  • Tango216

    The School said that Denise REQUESTED the janitor position

    BEFORE she went to the Survivor/China show.

    And that it was a $10 increase over her $7 hour lunch-lady job.

    That would make it $17 an hour. NOT BAD!

    Denise should give the $50,000 back.

    In order to redeem herself.

  • Outofthebag

    Well she just admitted to lying and asked that the money be donated to a charity. Her pethetic sob story seems to be nothing more than a house of cards.

  • Izzy

    I feel soooo sorry for Denise. We can’t read her mind so we don’t know her intentions.

    PEOPLE IN GLASS HOUSES SHOULDN’T THROW STONES.

    I dont know if anyone else from Douglas has posted anything on here but i will tell you this right now… Nancy Lane is anything but a truthful person. She has single handedly forced the school into budget cuts and personally pink slipped numerous teachers who had been with the school in upwards of 8 years. I for one know that Denise was a lunch lady at Douglas High School because I went to school there. And right now my little sister goes there and she knows Denise as the lunch lady. So what Lane said about Denise being given her job back as a janitor is a lie. Lane is to afraid about her reputation to tell people what actually happened.

    Denise put in an application for a custodial job but was it was never given to her. She was promised her job as a lunch lady when she returned from Survivor. When she returned, the school had given her lunch lady position away to someone else and they reinstated Denise into the school system as a janitor. Denise never lied about her job as a lunch lady being given away because it truely had. And she truthfully said on the show that she had been given a job as a janitor. There was no lie what so ever. The fact that Denise said she got demoted is what comes into question. Anyone in their right mind would consider going from a lunch lady to a janitor would consider that a demotion. But salary wise it was a promotion.

    If you dont believe me then dont. If you do then fine. But everyone needs to know the truth to this story.

  • dhsalumni

    I will add to this too since everyone is talking about what happened to the $50,000 check. Denise donated it to an AIDS foundation.

    And if anyone talks badly about that donation then they dont have a soul.

  • NairobiJones

    And all of you who are calling her names, making fun of her appearance, are what—totally honest??? None of you has ever lied? EVER? You got to be kidding me. Really? You are all full of crap if you tell me you have never lied. By the way, the topic was about her lying, not about her appearance, so how about staying on topic. Oh wait–it’s more fun to bash someone’s looks. That shows intelligence ( can you feel my sarcasm?) Maybe she did get demoted, maybe she lied. Either way, it seems kind of up in the air a bit as to how it really is. There are three sides to a story: Her side, the school’s side, and the truth. The truth probably lies somewhere between the other two. Besides, Survivor is a game that is steeped in lies. Nobody would watch it otherwise. Not even me, lol.

    Hey idiot, she went from a part-time food service job that paid $7.35 an hour to a full-time job that paid $17 an hour.

    She started working in that full-time job 6 weeks before she left for Survivor, you moron.

    It sounds like you live in the woods of Massachusetts, you ignorant fool.

  • Eric

    dhsalumni “If you dont believe me then dont. If you do then fine. But everyone needs to know the truth to this story.”

    Another idiot who claimed to know all the facts. back when this happened.

    You were WRONG, dummy. Denise was lying. Of course, she calls it being nervous and saying the wrong thing in live TV,” but Jeff Probst knew about it, and brought it up.

    Well, then, how did Jeff know to bring up the topic that Denise had “lost her position?” Because Denise told them the same lies BEFORE she got on live TV. Did she accidentally say the same lies to the Survivor staff because she was “nervous”?

    She’s a liar.
