RICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ ``Survivor'' Rudy Boesch has been busy.
The retired Navy SEAL from Virginia Beach was introduced Thursday in the Virginia House of Delegates, which passed a resolution recognizing his military service and gave him a standing ovation.
In an interview, Boesch said he enjoyed this week's debut of the ABC realty show ``The Mole,'' in which contestants solve challenges and ferret out the saboteur in their midst.
He also watched Fox's ``Temptation Island,'' where sexy singles test the fidelity of four couples. His reaction: ``They'll probably put that off the air for being too sexually explicit.''
As for the second edition of CBS' ``Survivor,'' set in the Australian outback, Boesch said the key to success is discord among the contestants. ``If everybody agrees it won't be worth anything.''
The 14-week series begins airing after the Super Bowl on Jan. 28.
