It was the not-so-perfect storm in Cambodia on the Nov. 18 episode of ‘Survivor’ for the latest castaway who’s torch was put out. We know you’ve got questions, and so did I, so we got the answers straight from the third member of the jury.
There’s one thing that’s for sure: no one can beat Joe. That seems to be the case so far on Survivor: Cambodia — Second Chance, as he’s won every individual immunity challenge from the start. However, the latest elimination may change his game a bit.
Here’s our Q&A with Kelly Wiglesworth!
Who do you feel the most betrayed by?
That would be Jeremy. He was the one approaching me from the beginning. We came together from the first swap — he said, ‘Hey I got you. I like you, let’s do this.’ And then throughout the game, we spent time talking about my son, he knew that was my motivation. So yeah, that kinda hurt.
Watching what went down behind your back, do you have any regrets?
No. Maybe getting my foot up a little quicker on the last challenge!
When you watched live, was there anything that surprised you?
I was surprised that I bonded as much as I did with Kimmy.
What was your personal, toughest challenge?
Emotionally, it was being away from my son. He was barely a year old — I was still nursing him until I got on the plane to leave! Just the social and psychological game for me, that’s always the toughest. It’s tough to be around people you wouldn’t necessarily choose to be around in real life. It’s hard to bite your tongue and not say what’s on your mind.
Do you think you played a better game this time around?
I think I played a similar game! I laid low, and kind of integrated myself into a larger alliance. That was my only option. Maybe I should have done an all-girl alliance? Maybe I would have been stronger than the other girls in the challenges. However, I wanted to play and be in an alliance with people I wanted to be around.
Would you do another season of Survivor?
Maybe — it just depends on family, where I’m at in my life, [and my] headspace. It would depend on the scene, and what the motivation is.
Would you do Amazing Race or Big Brother?
I would love to do Amazing Race — I’ve wanted to from the beginning. That one looks so fun!
Who is the biggest threat/has the best chance of winning?
Were you shocked to see Kelly go?
