Jenna Lewis Survivor
Jenna Lewis made her first appearance during Survivor: Borneo, where she was on the Pagong tribe. In one episode, the final nine castaways were supposed to receive videos from home, which they would compete to get to see. Lewis was eager to see her daughters, but Jeff Probst announced that her tape was never sent in.
Lewis was later voted off the island by three contestants who had an alliance and by Sean Kenniff, who was voting based on alphabetical order. Lewis was voted out 4-3-1 and became the second member of the jury.
She voted for Kelly Wiglesworth to win the game at the final tribal council (though Wiglesworth ultimately lost to Richard Hatch by a jury vote of 4-3).
She returned to the game in Survivor: All-Stars, where she started out on the Saboga tribe. In the first episode, Lewis successfully lobbied for Tina Wesson’s elimination on the grounds that a former winner (in Wesson’s case, the second season, Survivor: The Australian Outback) should not be allowed to win again. Throughout the game, Lewis along with fellow contestant, Rupert Boneham, managed to wind up on all 4 tribes.
After Saboga was dissolved in a reward challenge, they were absorbed into Chapera, then shuffled to Mogo Mogo, and finally merged into Chaboga Mogo. Lewis survived to the final three, but after losing the last Immunity Challenge to Rob Mariano, was voted out by Mariano and became the final member of the jury. She voted for Mariano to win the game, though he lost in a close 4-3 to winner Amber Brkich.

Jenna Lewis grants sex tape interview but leaves key details unexplained
It looks like Survivor: All-Stars contestant Jenna Lewis found a media outlet willing to buy her honeymoon sex tape’s “exclusive story”. However, the interview, conducted with the syndicated Extra entertainment news program, appears to have provided few significant previously unknown details, and instead generated several new unanswered questions. In an “exclusive interview” broadcast on Friday, July 23 (the weeknight when fewer viewers are home to watch it… perhaps that says something about what Extra’s own producers thought about the newsworthiness of the interview’s content), Jenna once again denied that either she or new husband Travis Wolfe released the tape themselves, but curiously also appeared to stop short of claiming that the tape was outright stolen, instead only saying that one day the tape was simply “gone.”
According to Jenna Lewis, as previously reported, the couple filmed the raunchy sex tape, which she described as “the consummation of our wedding,” during their May 1 elopement in Las Vegas. Then, “one week later” (apparently sometime between when the couple returned from Vegas but before Jenna flew to New York for Survivor: All-Stars’ Sunday, May 9 live finale) Jenna was “horrified” to discover the tape was “gone.” Said Jenna, “I ran around the house crying, screaming, so angry and upset that day.” Added her male model husband, “It’s a moment of pure terror when you can’t find the tape.”
Strangely, neither Jenna Lewis or Travis appears to have used the word “stolen” during their interview, with Jenna further telling Extra that after “discovering the tape missing” her thoughts quickly moved toward her 8-year-old twin daughters. “How am I going to explain this to them?” she told the entertainment news program — apparently not having considered such a question before initially deciding to film the video, nor before apparently deciding to not store the illicit tape in a secure location.
Expressing a seemingly peculiar lack of concern over who took the tape, Jenna simply responded to Extra’s query by stating, “That’s the $64,000 question.” “It’s what runs through our minds every day.” The interview excerpts posted on Extra’s website also make no mention of the filing of a police report or of any intention to take legal action against the Internet company that’s continuing to market and sell the tape that Jenna claims to be so “fighting mad” about, leaving the public to wonder if the tape was truly stolen and illegally acquired, then why, at minimum, did Jenna not publicly state an intention to go after the sex tape distributor?
While Jenna Lewis is correct in telling Extra that “once it gets on the Internet, it’s going to be there for life” — especially given the poor security of the supposedly secure Microsoft encoding encryption used to distribute the 10-day licenses to the 40-minute video — we note that there is no question that the copyright to this tape is owned by Jenna and Travis. In other words, this would not be a situation, like the one involving Simple Life star Paris Hilton, where the distributing party would have a colorable claim to the copyright; per their story, this is simply theft. So why wouldn’t they at least attempt to drive the tape’s distribution underground? And, as the copyright owners and performers, don’t Jenna and Travis at least have a claim (as Paris Hilton did) to royalties from its sale that would probably be enforceable even in St. Kitts and Nevis, the offshore porn center from which the tape was distributed?
Given that there was no mention of forced entry and the fact that the tape’s disappearance has been limited to a single one-week timeframe, do Jenna and Travis have so many individuals passing through their home that they have been unable to sufficiently narrow the list of possible suspects? And if the tape disappeared sometime during the week after the couple’s return from their honeymoon weekend, how does Jenna explain that fact that the tape’s website domain was registered with the Network Solutions domain registry on May 3, 2004 — the Monday immediately after the tape was filmed?
Despite not providing answers to any of these logical questions, Jenna did cite the fact that she turned down the opportunity to pose for Playboy magazine following her initial Survivor appearance during the program’s first Summer 2000 phenomenal season as evidence that she would never be associated with the public release of the tape. “If I’m not going to do Playboy for a ton of money, I’m certainly not going to put something like this out there that could hurt my family and friends,” she told Extra.
