”Survivor: Palau”: Meet Coby Archa

Voted off April 14, 2005

AGE 32

HOMETOWN Athens, Tex.

OCCUPATION Hairstylist

THE SCOOP The snap-tastic funnyman may supersede Will & Grace‘s Jack as Thursday-night TV’s most popular gay man.

PROS He spent a few months in the slammer as a teen ā€” and was homeless for a while as well ā€” so Survivor living may be a breeze.

CONS The other players may not take to his Queer Eye for the Island Guy persona.
