Whitney’s relationship with Keith on Survivor ended her secret marriage

Survivor South Pacific cast member and Nashville Star finalist Whitney Duncan’s marriage was broken up over an affair she had with fellow castaway Keith Tollefson.

While Whitney was apparently single, People reported that she “has in fact been married since Aug. 1, 2010, when she secretly wed Donny Fallgatter, 32, in Gatlinburg, Tenn.,” and now she and Keith “have been spotted around Nashville, and she refers to a BF in her Twitter posts.” (Whitney has not addressed this, but wrote on Twitter Friday, “My man met me at the door w flowers today…lucky girl.”)

Her marriage to Donny Fallgatter, a fellow country singer, ended after she returned. He told RumorFix, “She had no remorse, she said ‘I met a guy on Survivor and I don’t know what else to tell you.'” He also said, “At first I was mad and hated her but now I can say that everything happens for a reason and I’m in a better place now.”

You may recall that Whitney was extremely angry about being betrayed by Cochran, perhaps because she was struggling with her own betrayal.
