‘We never had any bad hygiene!’ The strange reason Australian Survivor stars have NO body odor – even after being stranded in Fiji without soap, toiletries and shelter
Australian Survivor sees a cast of people stranded on an isolated island where they must provide their own food and shelter.
With the exception of tampons and condoms, the Survivor castaways aren’t provided with any toiletries or hygiene products.
Despite this, the cast of the latest season told 10 Daily that they never suffered from body odor or hygiene issues during filming.

According to multiple cast members, their clean, natural diet stopped them from stinking up the Fijian island where the series is based.
‘To be honest with you, the people who I was close by, we never had any bad hygiene!’ Janine Allis revealed.
‘Maybe it’s because our bodies didn’t have any sort of toxins in us, if that makes sense.’
‘I couldn’t smell any BO and no one that I was speaking to had bad breath. It was amazing – maybe that’s how the world makes money, we all eat crappy food and we smell. It was just really bizarre!’

A general Survivor diet usually consists of plain rice and beans, some fruit, and fresh seafood like fish and muscles that the contestants catch themselves.
The 54-year-old added that her hair and skin was ‘amazing’ and her teeth were white during filming, despite the rugged and deprived conditions she was living in.
Returning Survivor star Luke Toki echoed Janine’s sentiment, comparing the show to a ‘natural detox’.
‘It’s weird, the first time I went out there, I think I lasted 46 days, and your body goes through a full transformation,’ he explained.

‘So you’re not eating sugars and stuff like that, so your teeth and all that stuff, your immune system kicks in.’
Abbey Holmes added: ‘I didn’t absolutely hate it too much because you’re not eating the sugar, processed foods and preservatives that you would be back home in Australia.
“So you don’t really feel as much as you would if you didn’t brush your teeth for an extended period of time at home.’
