A poker player, a WWE wrestler, and a Christian talk-radio host go to China and… No, it’s not the start of a joke: Survivor: China‘s players are a diverse array. Host Jeff Probst says of the 15th installment of the series, ”We have rewards where we go to the Great Wall of China. We go to the Shaolin Temple, which is the home of kung fu. Tribal Council is this 100-foot-tall temple.” Plus there’s the kidnapping of losing tribe members, immunity idols hidden right under contestants’ noses, and more suffering! ”Food won’t be as plentiful. In fact, we’re giving them rice because I don’t think they’d do very well without it.” And about that wrestler, Ashley Massaro? ”Ashley throws people around for a living. She wasn’t shy about walking around in her underwear — she’s got a great body. There’s definitely some work for the editors in terms of covering up body parts.” I mean, after all, you’re going to a temple, people!
