David Genat Is Inspiring 'Survivor' Stars To Strip Off With His 'Golden Towel Challenge'

If you've seen a few of your favourite 'Survivor' stars posing semi-nude on your Instagram feed -- you've got David Genat to thank.

The model and self-professed Golden God of 'Survivor' shared a black and white snap of himself, wearing only a strategically placed towel, taken by the legendary fashion photographer Mario Testino.

It didn't take long for the #goldentowelchallenge to take over Instagram with 'Survivor' alumni Johnny Eastoe, Daisy Richardson, Shaun Hampson, Lydia Lassila, Lee Carseldine and Mark 'Tarzan' Herlaar among the first to strip off.

Eastoe -- from last season's 'Challengers vs Contenders' challenged his former tribemate Daisy to pose in the series, as well as Rohan Maclaren and John Tan.

"Gettin' ya kit off and throwin' a towel around your wang, I think a few people want to see it," Eastoe said on his Instagram stories -- reminding us how much we're missing his unique style of banter since his torch was snuffed out.

Talk About A Blindside, The First 'Survivor All-Stars' Cast Have Been Announced

Just when you thought you'd have to wait a whole year for another round of idol hunting, backstabbing and juicy tribal councils, the Survivor gods have delivered!

Genat's rival-turned-bestie Shaun Hampson happily uploaded his own interpretation of the #goldentowelchallenge, throwing a fun accessory into the mix -- Richard Wilkins' autobiography.

While Shaun and Genat are patiently waiting on Ross-Clarke Jones and Luke Toki to upload their tasteful nudes -- they could be waiting a while.

We honestly have no idea how Genat willed this beautiful challenge into existence and why so many people have eagerly stripped off and we're definitely not complaining.

But it could be a sign of things to come on 'Survivor All-Stars' next year with Genat, Tarzan, Mat Rogers, Phoebe Timmins and Nick Iadanza, Henry Nicholson, Brooke Jowett, and Felicity Eggington all competing in the new series.
