'Survivor' Sequel Not So Rugged

Jenny Craig has nothing on the "Survivor" cast and crew. Host Jeff Probst, for instance, lost 15 lbs. in Pulau Tiga during the first shoot, and he didn't even have to rely on eating rat. Then again, reports PEOPLE, he managed to maintain his weight during production of the second installment of the reality series, "Survivor: The Australian Outback." How so? Credit the on-site amenities for the 230-member production team, which, according to the magazine, included trailers with bathrooms and showers with hot water (a first), as well as an open-air bar and an Internet café.
