Just when we were saddened to hear that “Survivor” couple Jenna Morasca and Ethan Zohn had split up, here is some good news from the world of our favorite reality show — Whitney Duncan and Keith Tollefson of “Survivor: South Pacific” are engaged.
The two met on the 23rd season of the popular CBS reality competition show, beginning the show both on the Savaii tribe. They made it to the merge, but were dispatched shortly thereafter, with Keith finishing 11th and Whitney finishing 9th.
But it all worked out well in the end for them, getting engaged on Valentine’s Day 2013. They announced on Twitter:
Keith writes, “Thanks to everyone for the best wishes on mine and @whitneyduncan ‘s engagement. I know real original proposing on Valentines day ha.”
And Whitney adds, “I’m going to marry this man,” along with picture above.
As news of the engagement spread across the entertainment world, Whitney also tweets, “I appreciate the Engagement articles, but how about talking about my missing cousin #HollyBobo instead of a stupid mistake in my past?”
The mistake she is referring to a short-lived marriage she had to a member of the band KingBilly, which she describes on Twitter as eloping with someone she barely knew.
The #HollyBobo hashtag is in reference to Duncan’s cousin Holly, who went missing nearly two years ago.
“Miss Bobo is 5-feet-3-inches tall and weighs 110 pounds. She was seen
around 7:30 a.m. April 13th, 2011, wearing a pink shirt and light blue
jeans, abducted from home in Parsons, TN. Officials ask that if you see
Holly or anything suspicious contact the Tennessee Bureau of
Investigation at 1-800-TBI-FIND.”
We had no idea, what a sad thing to see. We congratulate Whitney and Keith on their engagement and hope her family can get on break on Whitney’s missing cousin.
