Jon Dalton says he “didn’t want to make it public, what happened” with Jeff Probst.

Jon Dalton says he “didn’t want to make it public, what happened” with Jeff Probst.
Earlier this year, we learned from Jeff Probst that Jon Dalton, aka “Jonny Fairplay,” is “an absolute jackass whose actions at the Vanuatu finale after-party pissed me off so much that he’s banned from any event that I’m at from now on,” Probst said in Entertainment Weekly. So what happened exactly? Dalton tells the Edmonton Sun, “I didn’t want to make it public, what happened. If he wants to put it out there, I’m more than happy to explain why it’s so personal to him.” Maddeningly, Dalton told the paper what happened, but it refuses to share the details with us. Steve Tilley writes, “since we were unable to contact CBS and Probst’s representatives before deadline to get their side of things, we figure there are some juicy stories that are best left untold, at least in a public forum.”

A report in the Wrestling Observer, however, doesn’t back away from providing the alleged details. It says that “Fariplay is claiming his feud with host Jeff Probst is because Probst was dating Katie Doyle from MTV’s Road Rules and he [Fairplay] stole her away. He claims Probst is now with Julie Berry of Survivor, but that’s his second choice. Whatever.”
