Jeff had surgery for his ankle, discusses wearing “a pair of wet boxer-briefs.”
The Associated Press’ drools all over Jeff Wilson, who essentially quit Survivor Palau after injuring his ankle. After quickly informing us that Jeff had surgery on his ankle when he returned home, the piece’s nameless writer starts to go ga-ga over Jeff’s hot body, writing, “the muscly personal trainer was mostly seen in a pair of wet boxer-briefs.” Then the piece goes all soft-core porn on us with the start of the next sentence: “After being stranded in street clothes, Wilson stripped to his wet Fruit of the Looms for chores and challenges. ..” The piece contains no mention of his nipples, though. For his part, Jeff says he would have preferred a different, tighter undergarment: “Shoot, I would’ve rather had Speedos, to tell you the truth, you know, something that’ll actually dry. I didn’t expect I’d have to be running around in my boxers in front of 20 million people.”
