Ethan and Jenna work to save koalas.
The other Survivor couple, Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca, “are in Australia with the Australian Koala Foundation to promote and support the survival of the koala,” Australia’s ABC reports. That gives us possibly the best line ever spoken by a former cast member. Ethan–who, like his partner Jenna but unlike that leech Rob, is a millionaire–said,

“I was a little nervous to see the koala named after me, it might not live up to expectation.”

Definitely something to be concerned about. Ethan added that that worrying was for naught, though, because “it was great, so cuddly, so cute. If you make little kissey noises it will put its face up to you and give you a little kiss on the cheek.” Just like Jeff Probst.
