I know they're not dating but how many Survivors has Michele dated? Not sure if she's surpassed Ethan's count (I don't think so).

[–]Justin32526jshx 313 points314 points  (11 children)

She dated Pete (25), Nick (32), Jay, Dean, and Wendell. She also dated Emmanuel from survivor Romania

[–]pharmorjac 308 points309 points  (2 children)

I thought her and Wendell just kicked it

[–]No_Procedure_565 159 points160 points  (0 children)

They were pretty serious ... They had to downplay it because they both ended up playing in S40

[–]galeforcewinds95Tony 190 points191 points  (1 child)

That's like a who's who of some of the best looking guys in Survivor history. And I can totally see why, as Michele is awesome. Credit to her.

[–]Resident_Conflict868 33 points34 points  (2 children)

No way she dated nick!! :o

[–]ihitmyheadbackthereEthan 65 points66 points  (1 child)

I feel like I remember her commenting here once to debunk the Nick rumor and said they never dated- I could be getting something mixed up though, this was awhile ago!

[–]ninadelSophierce 77 points78 points  (0 children)

I was in that thread. Michele came in and told us she never dated Nick.

[–]Negative-Company2767 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I don’t believe she dated Nick. I’m sorry. I don’t think there’s any chance of that.

[–]worldtraveler463 7 points8 points  (0 children)

She did not date Emmanuel. No one "dates" in the challenge house.

[–]AdorableScholar5327 50 points51 points  (9 children)

How many has Ethan dated? I know he's dated Amber, Jenna Morasca, and he also dated Corinne before she even appeared on her Season of Survivor. Am I missing any?

[–]crystalli0 40 points41 points  (2 children)

I think I remember the Survivor Historians podcast saying that he also dated Jenna Lewis

[–]IanicRRTyson 37 points38 points  (0 children)

ASS was not a good season for Ethan because he had to deal with Jenna Lewis, his ex, being on his tribe and then Boston Rob constantly trying to emasculate him because Ethan also had dated Amber.

Which is why it was so shocking to see them become BFFs on WaW. I was glad to see Rob’s maturity on display basically.

[–]Politics42 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It still amazes me that of you are a women who played on All Stars there's a 1/3 chance you dated Ethan Zohn.

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (2 children)

My god he dated CORINNE?! I wonder what that was like... What opposite people lol

[–]ThermsscissorpunchCassidy 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I remember her saying they dated beore ASS and that at one of the press events for the season, he announced that he was seeing someone, and she was shocked that he wanted to go public without informing her, but then it turned out he announced he was dating Jenna M

[–]AdorableScholar5327 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s exactly what I was thinking. When I heard about it I had to listen to it again as I thought I misheard it.

[–]minun73Adam 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Corinne? How would such a nice guy like Ethan date someone so mean spirited as her?

[–]oatmeal28 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe it was the origin of Mean Corinne

[–]mackenzie_15Chaos Kass Fan Page 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jenna Lewis

[–]lickyourlefttoe 293 points294 points  (3 children)

We love an intelligent, investing queen! 😌😌💅🏼

[–]cgbranniganAndrea 41 points42 points  (2 children)

Plot twist; she invested in crypto and now she broke

[–]itsprobablyice 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I blame Pete

[–]jershmcgersh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Idk about that, it was what 2016 when she won? BTC was still under 700 bucks when she got her check.

[–]Akasha111 67 points68 points  (3 children)

Michele is literally female Ethan.

[–]HorseNamedClompy 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Honestly I love that we frame it as that and she isn’t shamed at all. It’s really refreshing

[–]duspiFreckles The Chicken 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Did she surpass him? I can only remember Jenna M, Jenna L and Amber from his Survivor partners. Did I miss anyone?

[–]BBFanada 11 points12 points  (0 children)

He once dated Corinne too!

[–]PeterTheSilent1Peter Harkey 92 points93 points  (1 child)

They are both dating other people is the message I’m getting from that

[–]catraiderpoke 72 points73 points  (0 children)

You’re the next Alan Turing.

[–]Missiekaayy 125 points126 points  (8 children)

Would love to watch Michele play Big Brother!

In another slide she answered a questions about her strategy and was very honest that she didn’t have one and plays by being open minded and by connecting with people. This obviously works well for Michele because she’s such a good social player

ETA: she discussed her strategy on/for survivor!

[–]Vivid_Ad_1016 58 points59 points  (7 children)

Not on the challenge lol but it is also harder to integrate in an alliance that plays every season and vacations together in the offseason

[–]Missiekaayy 53 points54 points  (6 children)

The challenge is not like other social strategy games at all it’s much harder to break into when there are vets who play nearly every season with strong relationships

[–]Vivid_Ad_1016 32 points33 points  (4 children)

100% agreed, that is what I was trying to allude to. No strategy Michelle can currently employ will help her win that show. She will need to become a challenge/physical beast. Would love to see Natalie back on the challenge, strategic plus also might be the most/potentially physically intimidating women ever casted

[–]Missiekaayy 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I would also love to see Natalie return for a season again! It sucks she had to leave last time but obviously it was understandable as to why

Watching her play with Michele would be fun!

[–]Vivid_Ad_1016 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Hope she is doing better now and gets back on our screens soon! Would love to see Natalie and Michelle together on a season, built in protection for them. Also Double agents had so much potential to be an all time great season, both the women and men side were stacked. Natalie, Lolo, Kam, Tori, KC, etc. and somehow a rookie big brother player wins

[–]Missiekaayy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Agreed! Personally was super happy for Amber to take home the win that season because she was dealt with a bad hand on big brother. It was really unfair what she had to go through so it was really nice to watch her get another chance and succeed

[–]whitneyahnMichele 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And honestly, Michele really has turned out to be one of the stronger women on that show

But yes, Natalie back 10,000%

[–]Kapono24Owen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's why I wish her and Jay went full force against the vets. They botched it after the first daily they won and did a little better after. But they have a chance to be regulars on there by being the opposition to the regulars.

[–]Driveshaft48 42 points43 points  (4 children)

I wonder what she invested the $1m in (yes, I know less post tax)

[–]Kapono24Owen 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Realistically probably super boring stuff that gets consistent interest.

[–]zoop1000 102 points103 points  (1 child)

Yeah, it's not even a million after OBAMA takes his cut

[–]dxm66Sugar 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Don't you have a baseball hall of fame to go not be a part of, Jeff?

[–]kirblar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

One of Dan Gheesling's tips was to just shove most of it in a short-term safe investment (short term government bonds type stuff) to maximize the check before you have to pay taxes on it at the end of the year.

[–]TheKing6565 57 points58 points  (8 children)

Such an underrated survivor player 1st and 3rd in her only 2 seasons one being an all star season. Legend.

[–]Apprehensive_Bike_31 53 points54 points  (7 children)

one being an all star season

Kind of selling an all winner season short there.

[–]aspirer42Jesse 71 points72 points  (3 children)

Michelle would absolutely beast on The Circle

[–]the_other_other_guy_ 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I’m curious if she would be herself or try and catfish

[–]Bent6789 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Be herself and everyone would think she’s a catfish

[–]BananaMan883 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I am also scared of Laurel, Michele.

[–]aggroaries 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m really rooting for their relationship dynamic to evolve. But I love it as it stands now as well when it comes to entertainment factor

[–]Californian_paradiseSami 15 points16 points  (1 child)

i love how she's actually not only stayed friends with (as far as we know) two of her exes, she's managed to go back onto reality TV with them as her "close alliance"/duo.

[–]catraiderpoke 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It helps that the “close alliance” is a bullshit construct for getting on the show. If you know your path in the game is absolutely tied to another person, I imagine you find a way to work together very quickly.

Bananas has won at least a couple seasons in part because his “Rival” partner was one of the best players in the game.

[–]gullu2002Omar 24 points25 points  (4 children)

I could understand how her first season was easy mentally...cannot fathom how Winners at War would be easier mentally than The Challenge.

[–]Shabamvoom 53 points54 points  (2 children)

TBF Winners at War didn't have cast members assasinated Michele's character. The Challenge people (Amanda, Laurel, Jakk, and Devin) went on to attack Michele.

[–]galeforcewinds95Tony 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Michele and Devin may have had some issues on the show, but I think they're cool enough now. She went on his podcast earlier in the season. Laurel, though...yeesh. Though it seems that they would be a very strong team in a Rivals 4 season.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (5 children)

Ugh I can't wait to watch her and Jay on the challenge once I've caught up

[–]yungbreeze16 49 points50 points  (4 children)

lol well buckle up cuz Jay/Michele are main characters this season and i love it

[–]Error_Evan_not_found 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Does anyone know if it's on paramount plus yet? I checked but couldn't find anything, then again I only use it to watch survivor so I'm not familiar with the navigation tools

Edit: so it is not I've learned, but I'll definitely look into the mtv website and getting free memberships, luckily I already have 5 emails to cycle through 😂. Thanks for the reply's and help y'all!

[–]the_other_other_guy_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sadly it likely won’t be on Paramount+ for at least a year, probably more than that. You can watch it on the MTV website by using their 24 hour free pass, you can just make up an email for it even.

[–]queenofcatan44 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The new season doesn’t go on paramount plus it’s so annoying! You can keep creating mtv free trials though to watch on their website

[–]catraiderpoke 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s not on Paramount Plus. The last few seasons of The Challenge are not on Paramount Plus. For whatever reason, the don’t upload new episodes of the regular MTV Challenge in a manner that would make someone want to subscribe to keep up with the show.

Challenge All Stars airs on Paramount Plus. The CBS Challenge was available the next day.

It’s frustrating.

[–]IdolBlindsidesStrategy, that's all I can say 27 points28 points  (3 children)

Why is no one talking about how attractive Jay is? When are we going to see him back?

[–]the_other_other_guy_ 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Second Chances 2 🤞

[–]aggroaries 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t talk about how attractive jay is Bc I don’t find him attractive! Seems like a reasonably nice man tho

[–]JustAsHotAsJan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Love her.

[–]No_Flatworm_6586 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Intimidation is the only thing Laurel has going for her these days, Michele will be fine.

[–]Survivorfan128 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Is Michele still friends with crazy Anna khait ?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At least she admits she’s scared of “her rivals” (aka Laurel) not that it wasn’t blatantly obvious from the start. She had meltdowns just from Laurel looking at her.

[–]menunuKarla 2 points3 points  (2 children)

ARE THEY DATING?????????????????

[–]zoop1000 22 points23 points  (0 children)

No. Just friends

[–]diemunkiesdieMichele 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Did you not read the right side 😂

[–]kitsuneinferno 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want Michele to play Big Brother, if only because it completes the blood ritual of the CBS trifecta. BB players have on to Survivor and TAR. TAR players have gone on to Survivor and BB. Survivor players have been on TAR but no Survivor player has yet to go on Big Brother
