Publish date:

Buff, as in the tubular head and neck gear, will once again be a required accessory on the new upcoming Survivor show, this one in the Fiji Islands. Survivor contestants on the first three shows in Borneo, Australia, and Africa also wore the item. Not only an accessory that is worn as sun and head protection on the show, as well as bandeau and tube tops by the women, it has been used to distinguish tribe members from one another with the two tribes wearing different colors. For more on this item that is a SNEWS® team favorite, go to www.originalbuff.com.
