Showmance blossoms as virgin makes her move on 'Survivor'

Love was in air and sea on Survivor, after Cole and Jessica shared a very special fishing trip together.

The two contestants had been making eyes at each other since last week. And as Joe said, “Cole is like a lovebird, and that lovebird disease is dangerous.” He added, “It’s worse than the flu.”

While Jessica admitted to liking Cole, romance is not really her thing. She said, “Life outside of Survivor, I move like a slug when it comes to romance. Like, I don’t even know if I know what romance means. To be honest, I come from a superreligious background and I am a virgin.”

Luckily for Jessica and the audience, Cole had similar feelings. He said, “I feel like I do have a shot with Jessica after our outing today. She just showed me more of herself, and I kept liking it. There wasn’t anything I could find wrong with her, honestly. So I was defining her as my dream girl, I guess.”

In fact, Cole liked her so much he told her Joe had the immunity idol. The shared secret made Jessica so happy she kissed Cole on the cheek.

She later said, “It’s Survivor, and so it’s to my benefit that I know Joe’s secret. That’s power. So unrelated, I mean, I gave him a kiss on the cheek. It just happened. My kisses are very private. Like, my lips don’t go near other people’s cheeks very often so, this is big!”

Survivor airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
