It’s not just Survivor players; it’s all people. Don’t send people pictures or videos of your junk. How Aubry Bracco responded to one is what you deserve.
It’s hard out there to find the right partner for you via online dating outlets, but that’s no excuse to be sending unsolicited pictures of your genitalia. That’s just a universal truth everyone should accept when it comes to dating apps; going the extra step to send that kind of content over Twitter or Instagram to Survivor is not only extremely gross, but it may come back to bite you in the butt.
Aubry Bracco, who recently competed in Survivor: Edge of Extinction, is not the kind of person to take that nonsense without a response. After being sent a video of someone showing off their junk, not only did she let him know that’s not okay, she let the fandom at large know that kind of behavior will be put on blast to over 31,700 followers.
Normally, we don’t cover social media content like this and other pieces of information unless it is a major life event or a tease of information when it comes to a future Survivor season. However, it does speak to a notion that not enough people understand; reality contestants aren’t owed your attention. This goes for all women in general, but there’s something about having a fandom that makes some believe it’s more okay than others.

I’ve seen social media accounts created solely for the purpose of harassing former and most recent Survivor players (women, primarily), with some of those players notably absent or reduced in general Twitter or Instagram interaction because of it. However, for each one of those bad apples out there, there are dozens, hundreds and, possibly, thousands of good people out there who share great experiences.
Like, this satire of the American Gothic with Aubry, Tai and Mark the Chicken came to help cheer Aubry up. That’s the kind of interactions with Survivor players fans should be doing. If you ever think, “Hey, I should send that person who was on TV a sexual picture or video,” think again!
