The most shocking thing about the premiere of "Survivor:
China" last Thursday wasn't the Buddhist
welcoming ceremony, Chicken's dismissal, the fact that this season
is set in China or that the castaways were
stranded in just the clothes they had on. No, The Slug was most alarmed that CBS
underwear of Zhan Hu
tribe member Erik Huffman, the curly-haired musician from Nashville. What
gives? None of the other skivvy-wearing castaways
received a blur.
Sure, "Survivor" has censored plenty of butt cracks and nipple slips from scantily clad contestants over the years, but this incident didn't seem to fall into either category. When The Slug asked a CBS spokeswoman why they blur his shorts, she said, "I don’t know for sure but probably a wardrobe malfunction." Really? Judging from the publicity photo above, Huffman's undies don't even have a trapdoor. First reward challenge should probably feature pants as a prize.
