Forget The Bachelor and The Bachelorette — Survivor has churned out more couples over the years than both shows combined. Pretty much everyone knows penultimate Survivor couple Boston Rob and Amber, but how many of you knew that Russell Hantz and Mikayla Wingle once dated? That’s right, THE Russell Hantz and the girl Russell Hantz’s nephew Brandon was obsessed with. In honor of the upcoming season of Survivor, we’ve put together the ultimate list of real-life Survivor couples, some of whom have since broken up and others whose torches continue to burn to this day.
12. Alex Bell and Kim Powers
Not many fans are likely to remember these two mid-list players from different seasons, but Alex (Survivor: Amazon) and Kim (Survivor: Africa) were the second Survivor couple to get hitched, back in 2006 (preceded only by Rob and Amber). There is something to be said for the virtually non-existent media attention their nuptials attracted. Maybe the more you stay out of the public eye and away from reality TV, the better your chances are of making it as a couple in real life.
