“Survivor” Season 41 Star Xander Hastings recently spoke with Chicago Mag to speak about his time on “Survivor” and one part that stuck out to us the most was starvation!
Xander placed third place during Season 41 and revealed that he lost 34 pounds from starvation on the show.
He didn’t speak much about this but we think it should be spoke about more. We don’t think the things that goes on during competition reality shows are the most healthy. We wish he would’ve explained more.
Hastings did share that he was a “chubby kid” who grappled with body image which eventually turned to him switching to a paleo diet in high school and becoming a competitive runner.
