On the Survivor: Kaôh Rong — Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty episode “It’s Merge Time,” two tribes merge. It’s a big deal to make it this far. Only 11 players remain. One of them is the eccentric Debbie Wanner originally of Team Brains. Everything about Debbie is eccentric including her history (the chemist also models) and her wardrobe. Prior to the show, Debbie posed in a one-piece swimsuit with a giant face of a Tiger printed on the front.
When asked why she doesn’t wear it on the show, Wanner explains that she would like to but it’s really a sheer leotard. When wet, it’s not considered appropriate for TV. “However they [Survivor producers] could have let me wear it out of the water because, like Vladimir Putin, my daughter Jade (a.k.a. Tiger) has always wanted to educate the public about the very real danger of tigers becoming extinct — such a tragedy.” Survivor airs Wednesdays at 8pm on CBS.
