Ethan Zohn has “very ragged cuticles.”
A Gawker reader won the site’s stalking competition with an account of spotting a nearly naked Survivor Africa winner (and Survivor All-Stars cast member) Ethan Zohn at the New York Sports Club steam room. Although “he usually just puts on streetclothes and leaves sans shower,” this time Ethan “[s]tayed through two steam cycles.” Things we learned about Ethan from the report: he is “[n]ot very hairy,” “[h]ad very ragged cuticles,” and “had rather jagged scars on left thumb and right forefinger.” The stalker was “not able to guage towel bulge, cuz he just got up and left w/o warning.” Maybe Jenna can comment on that.
