Contestants Personal Hygiene
Some people wonder how real the show is and if the competitors are really forced to go weeks without showering, washing their hair or clothes. Their only means of getting clean is a quick rinse in the ocean. There are a few exceptions. The contestants do have access to a container of necessary supplies like feminine products, birth control, vital medications, contact lens solution, sunscreen and insect repellent, anything outside of these needs is left at home. Things like razors, toothbrushes, or other conveniences aren’t provided. Gross! If viewers notice that women or men aren’t growing hair it’s because they had laser hair removal done before going on the show. The same goes with sparkly white teeth, many contestants will have their teeth whitened before going on the show."I’m sharing this shot to show the true emptiness of their world. On one hand it’s one of the most beautiful views any human could ask for – the ocean. On the other hand, when you are stripped of all your creature comforts, have nobody you can trust, haven’t eaten for days and feel so far from home, I imagine this view could also seem very empty and lonely. That’s why Survivor continues to intrigue me as it challenges you on every single level." - #jeffprobst #Survivor #SecondChance premiere TONIGHT 8/7c!
