Going to tribal is a ‘blessing in disguise.’ Those were the famous last words that Liz uttered when she thought she was safe heading in to tribal on week three of ‘Survivor.’ So, how does she feel now?
It seems like blindsides and ties go down every week on this season of Survivor — and this week was not any different. Liz was completely blinded by who she thought were her allies — and now, she’s explaining what really shocked her when she watched.
HL: Who do you feel the most betrayed by?
I think that Debbie is somebody that I actually felt reasonably close to out there and that I clearly shouldn’t have. I never felt betrayed by Joe; I didn’t think he liked me, I just thought he disliked Neal more than he disliked me!
Watching what went down behind your back, do you have any regrets?
There’s so many things I could have done differently out there — but even if I had done one of those ten things, it probably would have changed anything.
When you watched live, was there anything that surprised you?
I actually expected a much worse portrayal for me! I think I imagined it being less personal. It seemed liked there was a lot of animosity toward me from Debbie. I thought it would be ‘Oh, she just prefers working with them,’ but it was clearly personal.
It’s been almost a year. It’s raw watching it again. I’ve spoken to all of them in person since we played. I talk to Peter the most out of the bunch. It’s weird.
What was personally the toughest challenge for you?
The challenges were really really fun! I wasn’t bad at them actually. For me, the lack of food was the worst part.
Would you do another season of Survivor?
The game was so much fun. I really enjoyed playing, but I need to probably sit on it for a little bit. The being on TV thing is almost as big as playing the game for me. It’s so public, and it’s all out of your control. When the episodes are going to come on, you have no idea what it’s going to look like, what you’re going to see. At least in the game, you have a little control!
Would you do Amazing Race or Big Brother?
Big Brother would not be fun — being cooped up in a house. At least in Survivor, you get to basically be camping. It’s not comfortable, but you’re outside and it’s beautiful. Amazing Race would be cool. I love to travel.
When you left, who did you think had the best chance of winning?
When I left, I would have said Aubrey has the highest chance.
