Buffett Once Rescued SNL Cast Member Colin Jost in St. Barts

July 15th, 2020


In his new memoir ‘Jost the Facts’, SNL Weekend Update host and co-head writer Colin Jost describes a surfing incident in 2014 on St. Barts where Jimmy came to the rescue:

In 2014, Jost and his girlfriend Carmel Lobello were on vacation in St. Barts when Jost met Jimmy Buffett, who told him he was there because he always spends “a few days surfing wherever we open a new Margaritaville.” When Jost went surfing with Buffett and his family, he got “pinned against the rocks by my own leash” and was “bleeding because I sliced my foot open” as five-foot waves crashed into him. Buffett came to his rescue, paddled over to the rocks, and cut Jost loose with the knife that he surfs with — “(which, how awesome is it that Jimmy Buffett swims with a knife??).” The next day, when Jost tried to find Buffett to thank him for saving his life, he learned he “flew himself to Nevis to play golf for the day.”

Buffett Records Spot for Wheel of Fortune

June 8th, 2019


Jimmy Buffett was in Daytona Beach in May and filmed a spot to air on upcoming Wheel of Fortune episodes:

When the syndicated television game show “Wheel of Fortune” this summer reruns the week-long series of Latitude Margaritaville-themed episodes it originally broadcast last fall, it will include a new segment recently filmed here featuring a surprise guest.

None other than Jimmy Buffett, the singer-songwriter whose music serves as the inspiration for the Latitude Margaritaville 55-and-older active adult community in Daytona Beach.

Buffett made the unannounced appearance May 20 during the filming of a soon-to-be-aired new segment for “Wheel of Fortune.”

The segment, which featured the show’s hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White, was filmed inside the Daytona Beach active adult community’s new Latitude Bar & Chill restaurant, confirmed Bill Bullock, president of the Latitude Margaritaville division for developer Minto Communities.

“We knew Pat and Vanna were coming, but Jimmy was definitely a surprise,” said Bullock, who said he is not allowed to divulge details regarding the segment until it is broadcast this summer.

Vanna White recently posted a photo of herself and Buffett on her Facebook page, which was then re-posted by Latitude Margaritaville residents on a separate social media page devoted to their community.

Several Latitude Margaritaville residents took part as extras during the filming, according to Bullock.

Wheel of Fortune broadcast a week-long series of Latitude Margaritaville-themed shows last fall that included a viewer contest where the grand prize winner was given the choice of a new home at either Minto’s Jimmy Buffett community in Daytona Beach or in Hilton Head, South Carolina, or a cash prize.
