Spy hears a flirtation on TV2’s Survivor NZ comes under scrutiny tonight.

Keen-eyed viewers may have noticed the spark between Georgia Bergerson and Mike Sparrow from the Hermosa tribe. The two looked like they enjoyed Monday night’s blind challenge too.

We think producers put them in the same tribe for good reason. Bergerson is a performer who spent the past five and a half years in the German stage show Tarzan, and Sparrow was a finalist in the Australian competition Cleo Bachelor of the Year 2014.

So is Georgia Mike’s Jane? Or is she using flirting with the boys as a tactic to form a strong alliance?

It is understood the romance comes into question tonight, and when asked about it on screen Sparrow says: “She’s a gorgeous girl but she’s got a boyfriend at home so that throws a spanner in the works.”

Whatever happens in the wilds of Nicaragua over the next few weeks, we can tell you Bergerson is not with her boyfriend anymore.

But one guy who won’t have his head turned is Tom Paterson, 26, the teacher from Tauranga. He’s in a long-term relationship with model, actor and blogger Australian Christina Macpherson, whose bikini work on her website is as fetching as it is poetic.

Paterson was so keen to get into the action spotlight when applying to be on Survivor New Zealand he accidently uploaded the wrong video — an old audition tape . . . for The Amazing Race.
