FLOWER MOUND, Texas -- One of the contestants still playing on "Survivor: Philippines" has been diagnosed with West Nile virus.

Lisa Whelchel of "The Facts of Life" says she's "fine, just tired."

Her doctors have told her it'll take a year to fully recover.

Whelchel hasn't said if she thinks she came down with the virus while she was in the Philippines.
