A last-minute vote change — literally crossing out a name and replacing it — changed the game right before the merge on last night’s episode of ‘Survivor.’ So, what was Peter thinking during all of it? And who did he have a heart-to-heart with before tribal?
It all came down to a game of he-said she-said on the episode right before the merge on Survivor on March 23 — and that meant that Peter‘s ride came to an end when he couldn’t convince the tribe to send home one of his targets — namely Joe, Aubry or Julia. Now, HollywoodLife is chatting with him about what was really going through his head during that crazy tribal.
First thing’s first: how’d you feel watching back last night?
It was difficult. I talked to everyone, but the brains about getting them out and no one would say, ‘Let’s do this Peter.’ They all just nodded and smiled at me. I was frustrated. It made it look like I was flipping back and forth but I was saying, ‘Guys, work with me and no one would. I would go with Tai and the would run to them and say that.’ It was crazy!
What the heck was going on at tribal? Did you know all that talking was happening?
It wasn’t a blindside, at all. I figured it going in or that it would be a tie. I was really sick actually too; I was mentally out of it. So it was all kind of like, whatever people asked me to do, I’d do.
Did you trust anyone?
After Joe and I had a falling out, we had a heart to heart. We agreed that, ‘Yes we want to get each other out — but right now its about the numbers.’ So yeah I trusted him.
You said you knew people would make fun of you about going home due to not building blocks right. Has that happened yet?
I haven’t been back to work, but I’m sure at my desk at the hospital I have blocks sitting at my desk!
Do you have any regrets?
No. I live my life just like I do day to day. I’m frustrated the only component they showed of me was being an arrogant dork. They didn’t show anything of me being a normal person and being like, nice. No one ever said anything nice about me!
Who do you think was a front-runner to win when you left?
Cydney and Aubrey.
Watching back, was there anything they left out, you wish they showed?
Scot telling me to vote for Joe. And they missed the medical care I gave everyone out there. Every cut, break in the skin, I looked at and cleaned and whatever. We’re talking hours!
Wow they’re going to be having a tough time without you!
Maybe that’s foreshadowing.
Is there one thing you would have done differently?
I came out of the gates too hard and thinking too far in advance, instead, I should have thought hours and days. In the medical world, we’re trained to think ahead.
Would you come back if they did another ‘Second Chance’ season?
I’d come back and win the whole thing. Thats my over-confident, douchebag side saying that. I’d love to try and make it, for sure.
Would you do Big Brother/Amazing Race?
Were you shocked by Peter’s elimination?
