Survivor winners Jenna Morasca and Ethan Zohn will embark on the Climb of their life, scaling the Sydney Harbour Bridge concluding a two-week tour for the Australian Koala Foundation, Friday 18 February 2005.
Both adrenalin junkies, Jenna and Ethan will get a bird’s eye few of the glorious Harbour city and be met by two koalas from Featherdale Sanctuary on their descent at Dawes Point Park.
“In Sydney we will be getting up close and personal with another great Australian icon, the magnificent Harbour Bridge,” says Jenna, a former Play Boy cover girl.
The two reality stars have been surrounded by speculation that they will tie the knot whilst on their journey downunder. Although the couple deny rumors of a wedding in Australia the view from the top of the Harbour Bridge would make the perfect back drop for a romantic proposal, topping off a trip of a lifetime which has included Valentine’s Day celebrations and Jenna’s 24th birthday.
Jenna won ‘Sole Survivor of Amazon’ and Ethan ‘Sole Survivor of Africa’ – both screened on the Nine Network. The hot reality TV couple have had two koalas named after them at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast.
“We are encouraging everyone to foster our koalas as a gift for a loved one. Jenna’s koala is a really feisty little creature, whilst Ethan the koala wants to kiss every human in sight. I guess you can say that our koalas have even adopted our true personalities,” says Ethan.
By scaling the Harbour Bridge the stars will complete a three hour journey also enjoyed by celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Will Smith and Matt Damon.
The Australian Koala Foundation is the primary non-government; not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the survival of wild koalas. Survivor foster packages as well as signed Survivor memorabilia including the shirt Ethan wore on Survivor All Stars can be purchased from http://www.savethekoala.com.
