The Not-So-Gourmet Reward Food
In a candid conversation with former Survivor contestants in 2020, they openly discussed their experiences with the media, shedding light on various aspects of the show. One recurring complaint centered around the culinary rewards. Although the sight of food was undeniably a welcomed respite, the quality frequently failed to meet their expectations. Malcolm Freberg, known for his honesty, revealed that if the same food were served at a regular restaurant, it would likely be promptly returned. Tyson Apostol echoed these sentiments, expressing his disappointment with the taste of the reward food. The contestants longed for a higher culinary standard, craving flavors that would truly satisfy their appetites.
