Survivor: 19 seasons, at least 19 naked cast members

From the site that brought us shirtless American Idol contestants and naked Real World cast members comes “A (Not So) Complete History of Naked ‘Survivor’ Castaways.”

In honor of Survivor‘s anniversary, YuppiePunk asks, “how better to look back on its history than how it began — in the nude”? That history starts with, of course, Richard Hatch, and goes on to include everyone from soft-core porn star Brian Heidik to topless Courtney Yates, and there are also appearances by Jessica “Sugar” Kiper’s breasts, Marcus Lehman’s “virtually undetectable” penis, and the (maybe) fake photos of Jeff Probst.
