Survivor

Unless you were too busy watching Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants’ outbursts at tribal council, you probably noticed a few of the castaways from this season’s Survivor getting a tad friendly with one another. I’m sure it gets lonely in the jungle. Two members of Savaii’s former Team Pretty, Whitney Duncan, 27, and Keith Tollefson, 26, had a total spark for each other during their time in the South Pacific. And why shouldn’t they? They’re both young, fun, good-looking, and single. Wait, is one of them married?

Keith is the laid-back water treatment technician from San Diego, while country crooner Whitney hails from Tennessee and made it to the top five of the Nashville Star singing competition. Both came to Survivor single and ready to mingle, according to their bios, and the pair was quickly joined at the hip. However, one additional player has come out of the woodwork… Whitney’s husband, Donny Fallgatter.

While the story of Whitney and Donny’s relationship is different than most, the couple was definitely married when she appeared on the show. They married on August 10, 2010 after two months of dating. However, they never shared this information with family and friends or Survivor producers. Whitney would often travel with fellow musician Donny’s band, and in May of this year, before Whitney left to film Survivor, the pair announced their engagement. Um…

A source tells People.com, “They were good together, and they looked good together. They both fell hard.” The insider continues, “Donny was totally faithful while she was gone. He even went to help out at her parents’ house in West Tennessee a couple times.”

After filming of Survivor concluded, but before the castaways were sent home, Whitney called her husband, who later admitted to a friend that things sounded a bit off. The source says, “He said she sounded weird, like something was up, and not like she was looking forward to seeing him.” Indeed, in a later phone call, Whitney admitted that she had fallen hard for her tribe mate, Keith. The friend recalls, “Donny sent me a text that said, ‘Whitney got into a Survivor relationship.’ I called him and he was really upset so I went over to his place.”

At that point Donny revealed the couple’s secret to the source. “That’s when he told me that she wasn’t his fiancé, but his wife, that they had gotten married the summer before. I was totally shocked.” While the new Survivor sweeties have been spotted around Nashville, Donny reportedly went home to North Dakota so that Whitney could move out of his home.

Not surprisingly, Whitney and Donny have filed for divorce, which was heard and granted last week on November 8th. As soon as the judge who heard their petition signs the paperwork, the divorce will be final leaving Whitney free to pursue other endeavors…wink, wink.

Not to be one-upped by Donny’s People.com source, a Whitney insider has been talking to UsWeekly, stating that no infidelity occurred. “Whitney and Keith did not expect to fall in love on the show but they did. She is divorced and never lied to her ex about falling for Keith. She told him the day she returned from Survivor,” asserts the source.

The insider continues, “Whitney and her family have had a very trying year.” The source is of course referring to the tragic kidnapping of Whitney’s twenty-year-old cousin Holly Bobo, adding, “I think learning about her cousin being abducted the same day she found out she would be on Survivor gave her a new perspective on life and love and made her realize that life is too short to be unhappy.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WHITNEY’S SECRET MARRIAGE? DO YOU THINK HER SURVIVOR LOVE WITH KEITH WILL OUTPLAY OUTWIT OUTLAST?


On last night’s episode of Survivor, the two tribes try to live as one, while Cochran faces backlash for turning on one of his own. The Upolu gets a sweet treat and the Savaii continues to be picked off one-by-one.

Back at camp, Ozzy approaches Cochran about his “strategy.” Ozzy wants to understand his decision, and of course, Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants, or should I say Cochran’s new body guard, comes by to make sure his new friend isn’t being intimidated by big, bad Ozzy. Cochran assures BHCP that all is fine and Marijuana Jim pops by to tell his former ally that he’s a poor excuse for a man and he doesn’t ever want to talk to Cochran again. Mature. Cochran stresses his decision to vote off Keith wasn’t personal — it’s just about self — preservation. Ozzy reminds him that he went to Redemption Island FOR Cochran. Whitney also asks Cochran to remember the three different times she and Keith saved him from being on the chopping block.

Last night’s Survivor was a show of solidarity…for a hot minute. The merge occurs between the two tribes just as predicted. Savaii’s plan works in that Ozzy beats off the unbeatable Christine, but that is about as far as it goes…his overacting doesn’t fool the Upolu for a split second, and Savaii’s double agent may be way too good at his job.

After the dumbest riskiest move in the history of the show, the folks at Savaii aren’t too keen on their recent decision. Cochran tries to say that he would have been willing to go to Redemption Island had Ozzy not stepped in with his grand plan. Keith pointedly says that he himself could never let someone else fight his battles. Someone asks Cochran if he’s comfortable being a double agent. He reveals in his interview that he can certainly pretend to like the Upolu as he’s been pretending to like his tribe since they arrived. Is someone a sore sport because his fellow castaways are missing Ozzy?

It’s the kind of news I hate having to write about, but former Survivor winner Ethan Zohn’s cancer has returned.

In an interview with People, the thirty-seven year old reality television star explains that doctors told him on September 14 that the cancer had returned to his chest. Ethan had spent the previous twenty months in remission from Hodgkin’s lymphoma. However, even while in remission, Ethan was concerned that the cancer could come back.

He states, “I don’t want fear or cancer to define me, but it’s always in the back of your mind.” Ethan continues, telling the magazine, “It’s localized in my lung area, [but] it’s good that it’s not all over my body.”

Ethan reveals that his long time girlfriend, another Survivor winner and Zohn’s recent Amazing Race partner, was with him when he received the news. Of thirty-year-old Jenna Morasco, Ethan admits, “We’re both filled with fear and anger and anxiety and gratitude and frustration. But there’s so much love there. It’s this whole spectrum of emotions.” He is grateful for his love of eight years who “[is] taking it like the rock star that she is.”

Ethan began a new form of chemotherapy on October 18, which will continue for twelve weeks. SNG-35 is a type of treatment that only targets cancerous cells, meaning, says Ethan, “I won’t lose my hair again.”

Once finished with the chemo, Ethan will likely go through another stem-cell transplant. One of his brothers is hopefully a match for Ethan, although his doctors won’t tell him which one. Zohn explains, “They didn’t want me to start treating one differently than the other. Of course my whole family is taking bets on who it is.”

Not the kind of person to let this news take over his life, Ethan reveals that on November 6, he will run the New York marathon as planned. He is participating in the race to raise money for his Grassroot Soccer organization, which Zohn founded to promote AIDS awareness, as well as prevention and education of the disease.

“The doctors think I’m crazy but they gave me the okay,” Ethan admits. He continues, “Cancer isn’t going to slow me down. I want people to know that you can still live a fulfilled life and move forward.”

What an amazing attitude to have and one that will definitely help him on his road to recovery. We here at RT are praying for Ethan’s quick return to good health!

Last night’s Survivor was full of twists. Brandon Hantz didn’t exude the crazy, and Ozzy is part of the most dramatic rose ceremony ever…oh, sorry…wrong show. Seriously, Savaii uses a risky strategy at the leadership of Ozzy, and Upolu is finding a togetherness and trust that has been lacking among the tribe.

After tribal council, all of Upolu is discussing what a loose cannon Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants has been since their raft hit the shore episode one is becoming. Edna is thinking that she shouldn’t worry about sitting out of all the challenges if BHCP keeps acting like he’s one sandwich short of a picnic.

Last night’s Survivor had it all…lost love (what will Ozzy do without Elyse?), drama (Mikayla or Edna?), pious musings (Coach and Brandon…take your pick), backstabbing (um, Albert?), a touching after-school special moment (Dawn and Cochran are finally invited to the party!), and of course, a rousing final speech (courtesy of Crazy Pants). It was epic. Oh, and there was a shuffleboard challenge.

Back at the beach, Ozzy is flabbergasted by his fellow Team Pretty members for voting against the alliance. He declares himself a free agent, and both Keith and Whitney think he’s being just a tad dramatic for taking Elyse’s elimination so personally. Dawn calls him out for not playing as honestly as he wants his teammates to play, and Ozzy is prompted to admit that he has found the immunity idol. To each his own is Ozzy’s new way of life with Savaii. The following the say, his tribe mates think he’ll come around, but the following day he’s still pouting. The Savaii tribe is in agreement that he’s being an annoying cry baby, and Dawn and Cochran are finally part of the in-crowd.

Last night’s Survivor gave us a peek into a changing, slightly crazier Coach, who we are sure to see more of in upcoming episodes. The duel pitted friend against friend, and the immunity challenge was just a whole lot of gross, gagging nastiness.

Stacey joins her biffle Christine on Redemption Island. Stacey relays to Christine all the lying and drama that has been going on with the Upolu. She tells Christine that Coach is the ring-leader (and the pot stirrer), and that all the people in the blue tribe are heading to hell wearing gasoline drawers. If Stacey ever gets tired of being a mortician, she can take her one-liners on the road.

Last night’s Survivor was very cut-throat. As usual, Brandon does a lot of repenting, Dawn does a little ass kicking to win immunity for her tribe, and Cochran and Marijuana Jim devise a plan to disrupt Team Pretty. I am loving Savaii this season. Is it just me, or is the Upolu just a bunch of Shady McShadersons?

The episode begins with Ozzy and Elyse getting cozy on a hammock. Marijuana Jim is getting jealous nervous that their bond may be tighter than his is with Ozzy. He’s worried Ozzy is morphing into Rob Mariano. MJ quickly realizes that Elyse has to go before they become a power couple. Has someone been smoking dope watching Bachelor Pad? Marijuana Jim finds a quick ally in Cochran, as it buys him more time to prove himself.

Over at Upolu, Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants is apologizing to Mikayla for gravitating towards untruth. He next approaches Edna to repent for his lying and to casually mention that Edna is not a member of the main alliance like she thought she was. I couldn’t tell if it was a strategic move on Brandon’s part or inadvertent slip-up. You never can tell with that sneaky BHCP.
