Apparently, Survivor no longer holds exclusive title as TV’s Official Desert-Island Weight-Loss Program. Jorge Garcia, who plays lovable big-guy Hurley on ABC’s Lost, tells Maxim magazine’s March issue that he’s lost 30 pounds — a fact that may help silence critics who’ve kvetched that his lottery-winning character’s waist hasn’t shrunk despite the limited menu options available to the survivors of Oceanic flight 815. “I can afford to not live on rum and burritos and take better care of myself,” said Garcia. Not that there’s anything wrong with rum and burritos, of course.
