Day 21 on ‘Survivor: Cambodia — Second Chance’ will go down as one of the biggest blindsides ever. Even the big fans of the show didn’t see this one coming. So, how does the latest victim feel? So, we had 8 questions!
Spoiler alert: if you missed the Nov. 11 episode of Survivor: Cambodia — Second Chance, don’t click in!
Who do you feel the most betrayed by?
I don’t actually feel betrayed by anyone — Ciera was really clear that she wasn’t a Savage fan the week before. Someone tipped off Wentworth she was going home, so she did what she did, but it wasn’t an evil. (Side note: Ciera confirmed on Twitter that Joe had told her, and she told Wentworth.)
Why didn’t you guys split the votes?
The reality is that we all spent hours looking for idols! And there was nothing — the thought was Ciera probably thought she was going, because she had gotten votes last week, so we thought let’s load up on Wentworth! We thought, ‘There’s no chance she had an idol.’ Well, that was a colossal terror. A big mistake. We didn’t think idols were in play. It’d take two hours to figure out who was voting for who, it was exhausting. It didn’t seem necessary at the time.
Watching what went down behind your back, do you have any regrets?
I don’t regret anything. I had a poisonous spider bite my foot, so my toe was infected. I wasn’t completely lucid. In terms of regrets, Jeremy and Tash had a good argument to get out Wentworth — she had a chance of winning immunity, she’s a threat. They said, ‘We can deal with Fishbach in three days.’ It made sense. So no, I don’t have any regrets.
When you watched live, was there anything that surprised you?
Joe was kind of giddy! He had the immunity so he didn’t have to worry — when she played her idol, it meant that me or Jeremy were going home, and he was smiling. We were in such a tight alliance, so it surprised me a little bit. It was a dazzling.
-What was your personal, toughest challenge?
It was the blindfolded puzzle challenge. It took an hour and 15 min and it was 110 degrees. Those pieces weighed 80 pounds. I had to push them through the sand up and down the hill and on to the mat… blindfolded in 110 degree heat. I never thought in the history of the show, that there was any challenge that would beat me — and that one did. I had nothing left.
-Would you do another season of Survivor?
I don’t think they’ll ask! I got my second chance — but if they asked, I would be honored. It would depend on the situation.
-Would you do Amazing Race or Big Brother?
I’d love to do Amazing Race! I don’t know anything about Big Brother. It would be a blast — my wife is from overseas, and we’ve traveled several times. We’re very competitive so that would be interested.
-Who is the biggest threat/has the best chance of winning?
Im a Bayon strong guy — I’m loyal to a fault, so one of them. Kimmy’s well positioned; she has a good strategic game when she has to. She’s very smart and is staying under the radar. It will be interesting to see what happens to the old Bayon alliance, and what happens with Sierra and Abi. I can say from sitting on the jury, the first half of the season was epic, and the second half is just as epic!
