‘Survivor’ Cast Off Has Designs On Bug Repellant Clothing

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Survivor cast off Michelle Yi won’t be winning $1 million after being kicked off the show this past Thursday (Apr. 12), but her experience on the show has given her a million dollar idea.

Yi is studying fashion design at the University of Cincinnati and will graduate in June.

After that, she hopes to get a career designing activewear and says, based on what she’s learned from the show, there’s a market for clothes with built-in bug repellant.

Another thing she learned from being on Survivor that she hopes to incorporate in future fashions is that it can get cold at night even in the tropics so she would like to create outfits that retain and repel heat.

However, Yi admits that could be a challenge since she points out, “You’re always going to be cold when you sleep in a bathing suit.”
