The Season 36 premiere of Survivor: Ghost Island airs Wednesday, February 28 at 8pm on CBS. Host Jeff Probst will explain the twist of the theme (the castaways live on an island filled with Survivor idols and advantages from past seasons) and introduce the 20 new castaways. One of the most “likable” is 18-year-old Michael Yerger. Probst says Michael is “living a lie” because in real life, when working as a real estate agent in Los Angeles, he pretends to be 24.
But is Michael really a real estate agent? According to his Instagram account (he has close to 30k followers) he’s a professional model. A serious one, too. Yerger works with three modeling agencies. He’s represented by LA Models on the West Coast, Ford Models in New York, and Kult in Germany. So which Michael is the real Michael? 18-year-old model or 24-year-old real estate agent? Or, neither?! Survivor airs Wednesdays at 8pm on CBS.
