Lisa Whelchel not only is about to have the honor of starring on two iconic TV shows three decades apart — The Facts of Life and Survivor — but that means she will have also starred alongside two notable TV hunks: George Clooney and Jeff Probst. Which got me thinking: What’s better, sharing a show with Probst or Clooney? I asked the woman formerly known as Blair Warner that exact question, and was surprised by the answer.
“Women are initially attracted to the external, and George was a lot of fun,” Whelchel told me while out on location in the Caramoan Islands, “But, you know, Jeff has depth. And that’s attractive to a woman.” Probst over Clooney! What kind of madness is this?!?
