Survivor Secret Scene: Why Joe Anglim is Such a Dangerous Contestant
One of this season's alpha males is turning heads – but is he too perfect for his own good?
This season of Survivor is different from many others: of the 17 contestants left, almost all of them are legitimate threats to win the game.
But to hear host Jeff Probst tell it, some contestants are more dangerous than others. Case in point: Joe Anglim, the 26-year-old jewelry designer from Scottsdale, Arizona.
“Joe represents why Survivor is so difficult,” Probst tells PEOPLE. “Joe is athletic and can win every challenge. Joe can build you your shelter. Joe can catch you fish. Joe is good-looking. Women want to date Joe; men wish they were like Joe. You want to keep him around, because everyone likes Joe. And if this group isn’t careful, they’ll wait too long to get rid of him.”
“Going up against Joe is like David and Goliath,” Probst continues. “He has everything, and that’s why everyone should want to get rid of him. But will they? He’s so charming that they just may keep him around.”
This week’s deleted scene is all about Anglim – and it’s clear that the Survivor producers are big fans.
We’re treated to shots of Anglim fishing, cooking and flipping his hair – all while walking around Cambodia in boxer briefs.
His fellow castaways quickly take notice.
“Joe is good at everything,” observes California attorney Kass McQuillen. “He fishes great, he cooks great, he looks great. I mean, he’s too hot to handle. I don’t think, even when I was single, I would approach someone like Joe. He’d be way out of my league. But I’ve got him cornered here.”
“I’m so appreciative of everything that Joe does around camp,” adds contestant Kelley Wentworth, “but there’s no way I’m taking that dude to the end.”
Mike Holloway, who won Survivor: Worlds Apart, says that he perceived Anglim as a threat. “I had to vote him off,” Holloway tells PEOPLE. “I couldn’t win the game as long as he was around. We called him Joey Amazing; that was like his nickname around camp. You can’t go to the end with someone who you call Joey Amazing.”
It remains to be seen whether Anglim can go the distance – but here’s a fun fact about him: His three ridiculously photogenic younger sisters are in the country trio The Anglim Sisters. Rather than hiring models for their music videos, they simply use Joe. (See the videos below.)
Survivor: Second Chance airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. (ET) on CBS.
