I should have been on Survivor: Micronesia. According to host Jeff Probst, this season, which pits ultimate Survivor fans against returning favorites, the contestants are getting some serious action! “We have love affairs, plural,” Jeff reveals. “They play from episode two, and we have the most intimate footage that we ever had of a love affair developing and consummating.” You would think these lovebirds would get a room to do their business, but Survivor producers made sure that impossible. “It’s brilliant how we captured it because it’s hard to do; they try and hide,” says Jeff. “We out-thought tem and got some great footage.” Jeff says the hook-ups definitely affected the game. “They play a big part in this season all the way to the end.” The couples that found love while starving did it without the help of basic hygiene amenities, like razors! “They don’t have tweezers, they don’t shave and the guys don’t get anything,” Jeff reminds us. “They have tampons and they have condoms, which we’ve learned because we don’t want to have any Survivor babies.”
Ah, they say love is blind and obviously, olfactory-challenged as well. Survivor: Micronesia – Fans vs. Favorites premieres Thursday, Feb. 7 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
