Followers of Survivor: Ghost Island must be familiar with Michael Yerger. He was a contestant in the show’s 36th season, which aired in 2018. 

The youngest contestant at the mere age of 18, Michael showed extraordinary skills and talents needed to survive on the island, which turned out to be a threat to the other contestants.

It eventually led to other contestants voting to eliminate Michael from the reality TV show.

But, his achievement is not limited to the black belt. He also earned the rank of Eagle Scout. It is the highest achievement in the Boy Scouts Program of America.

Is Michael Gay?

The reality TV star does not seem to be a gay man. He has a girlfriend named Melissa. Not many details about his girlfriend have popped out on the internet. However, the two seem open about their relationship in both of their Instagram handles.

It is through their Instagram one can tell that the two started dating since 2011. Melissa mentioned it in her post of 1 June 2019. Also, via Melissa’s Instagram handle, it is evident that the two have an intense connection. She posted stories of the couple on trips to Bali and Vegas together. 

The question that keeps the fans on their toes is about their wedding. The two have not made it clear if they plan on getting married. But, the way their relationship goes, it is very likely to happen soon.

Career & Net Worth

Of course, Michael shot himself towards the fame through the TV show, Survivor: Ghost Island. And, through the same TV show, he revealed that he worked as a real estate agent. But, Michael is not restricted to real estate only. He became an underwear model represented by agencies like the LA Models, Ford Models, and Kult Models.

Through all the success in modeling and real estate, Michael seems to earn quite the figure. However, the exact sum he makes is not very clear.

One could come out with an average salary of a model, reality TV star, and a real estate agent and claim that Michael earns a certain amount. But judging from his fame, there is a good chance he makes more than the average salary. 

His total net worth, just like his salary, is not disclosed.
