From the article:

"Febreze was the second-highest spender on "Survivor" in the first half of the past season"

Because after the first half of the season, none of the contestants could smell each other anymore.


Anyhow, this is just another example of companies giving in to pressure based on the assumption that something might be remotely racist. Being sued on vague, baseless racism claims? Just settle to avoid the 'controversy'. Is a TV show separating teams based on race? Oh noes! Someone might think that racist; pull the ads, now!

You know, if companies would stop giving in to this baseless racist crap, people might actually be able to become race-tolerant because the 'issue' of race wouldn't be brought up all the f-ing time.
