He's windsurfed around the world, from the waters off the
Hawaiian Islands to the shores of the Canary Islands, but never
has Kevin Pritchard, 25, found himself in a setting quite like
Temptation Island. Last summer the 2000 Professional Windsurfers
Association world champ spent a month in Costa Rica filming
Fox's Temptation Island 2. As one of the show's "sexy singles,"

You can catch his appearance on episode eight on Jan. 17 at 9 p.m.

lame girlfriends, and they would hold him back from going out
and playing. That would piss me off.
SI: What's the main thing you learned on Temptation Island 2?
KP: How good I have it. All the guys and girls on the island
kept talking about their jobs and how great a vacation this was.
That month I spent in Costa Rica was almost like work for me
because I lead this lifestyle all the time.
