CBS is notorious for its often-unnecessary blurring of Survivor cast members. Anything deemed offensive–a bit too much breast, some pubic hair, a revealing bulge–gets a fuzzy spot placed over it.
It’s so odd and amusing that there’s even now a video compilation of the “gratuitous blurring” from the first episode.
But on Tuesday’s two-hour premiere, something did not get censored: Marcus Lehman‘s penis.
In the second episode, during the combined immunity and reward challenge–a recreation of one from Survivor Africa–Marcus starts running and gets exposed.
He’s wearing loose-fitting boxers, and right after Jeff says “go” and everyone starts running, Marcus’ penis pops out for a few strides.
It’s in both a close-up and a wide shot, and is extremely obvious if you’re looking for it. It’s even visible in the challenge video on CBS’ web site, at the 2:30 mark.
Oh La La has still photographs and Naked Straight Guys created a video that replays the moment in slow motion and zooms in–and sets the whole thing to ironic music complete with sound effects.
Update: CBS has removed and/or edited the videos on its site, and Metacafe removed the embeddable video. However, you can still watch it on the Naked Straight Guys blog.
