She's the first Survivor: Pearl Islands castoff, so it's unlikely folks will remember the name Nicole Delma a year from now. However, it's hard to forget the evening wear she was sportin' when forced to jump overboard. Not since the Monica Lewinsky scandal has a blue dress made such a splash! Especially since the 25-year-old Californian masseuse admitted to wearing absolutely nothing underneath it.
"I think the blue dress is a bit of a regret," Delma tells TV Guide Online. "Although it is going up on eBay, so maybe not."
It was a surprise to everyone that the Survivors were forced to walk the plank with only the clothes on their backs. But why did Delma opt to go braless that day? "I couldn't get the dress zipped," she admits. "I had gorged myself a couple of days before, because I knew I wasn't going to be eating. So when it came time to put on that size two dress, it just wouldn't zip up [with a bra on].
"I was just hoping and hoping that, if we were going to stay, there was going to be some sort of a challenge in which you'd get your clothes back," she adds. "But in the footage that I've seen of the next episode [airing tonight at 8 on CBS], it doesn't look like it's happening. It is pretty cruel."
Delma wasn't the only one with wardrobe issues. Her teammates Osten, Ryan O. and Andrew shed their bulky duds and stripped completely bare during an immunity challenge. Her take on the skin parade? "I was kind of like, 'What is the point?'" she laughs. "But then, I was thinking, 'Oh my God, I hope they don't expect [the women] to do the same thing.' At the same time, once they did that, everything else wasn't such a big deal." And that is the naked truth.
