Australian Survivor host Jonathan LaPaglia and ex-contestant Shonee Fairfax have been spotted leaving some thirsty comments underneath each other’s Instagram posts.

If you need a little refresher, Shonee first appeared in the Champions V Contenders series in 2018. She later returned in 2020 for a second shot at Sole Survivor during the All Stars competition.

However, as JLP hones in on the current Australian Survivor drama on-screen, there appears to be some scalding hot tea brewing IRL.

A number of So Dramatic! sleuths have noticed that the pair have left several cheeky comments under each other’s thirst traps on Insta — despite reportedly still being married to their respective partners.

In December, Shonee posted a mirror selfie of herself looking ripped in a bikini, under which Jonathan commented: “Damn!”

The 29-year-old ex-Survivor responded with her own string of naughty emojis, while a shocked fan simply wrote: “JONATHAN”.

However, the heat really turned up when Shonee added a second comment in response to the fan.

“I say his name in caps locks too [sic].” Uhhh, is this suggesting what we think it’s suggesting?

On another snap of herself in a sauna, Shonee wrote: “It’s getting hot in here.”

“Dang… sure is!” Jonathan penned. “That’s some serious Shontent!”

Shonee then teased: “There’s room for two.”

Similarly, the All Star left a number of thirsty emojis underneath a video on the 52-year-old’s account, in which he was shirtless.

Wait, Isn’t Shonee Fairfax Married?

Understandably, fans were left confused by the saucy comments considering the last we heard, Shonee was married to UK pro-skateboarder Benny Fairfax.

However, if you scroll back to November 2021, the Survivor star posted a snap confirming her split from Benny.

“My first divorce looks good on me,” she captioned a photo of herself in a bikini. She has since changed her Insta bio back to her maiden name, Bowtell.

Benny and the Survivor All Star no longer follow each other online either.

Who Is Jonathan LaPaglia’s Wife?

As far as we’re concerned, Australian Survivor mainstay JLP is by no means an eligible bachelor.

In fact, he’s been married to Australian actor Ursula Brooks since 1998.

Ursula has starred in a number of films, including Happy in the Valley, Angels and Demons, and Daybreak. She’s also a recognised screenwriter, having written two TV movies, Enough About You and How Divine!.

The pair also share a daughter, Tilly, who is in her early twenties and occasionally features on the TV host’s Instagram page.

As for Jonathan’s spicy back-repartee with Shonee — well, it’s safe to say we are officially confused.
