Elisabeth Filarski was a contestant on the second season of Survivor. Pretty, blonde, and popular at tribal councils on that show, she was subsequently hired to host the Style Network's The Look for Less, where she led viewers toward designer looks at bargain prices. In 2002 she married pro football quarterback Tim Hasselbeck, and in 2003 she replaced Lisa Ling as one of the co-hosts on ABC's popular all-female talk show The View. On that show she became the voice of conservative political perspectives, battling Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg and speaking up for the Iraq war, the PATRIOT Act, and the Bush administration. In 2004 she gave a prime time speech at the Republican National Convention, and in 2013 she left The View to join Fox News. Describing her success, Hasselbeck has said, "Every day I open my heart and say exactly what I'm saying".
