It looked like one of the biggest blindside of the season, but did last night’s jury really come as a surprise to the victim? HollywoodLife.com spoke with him all about that big move.
This season of Survivor has been full of a ton of twists — and last night, the bottom three looked like they made the shift to the top. So, what about the one who fell at the very bottom and was sent packing? We chatted exclusively with him this morning.
Heading into the jury, did you have any feeling that you were going home?
I had an idea that it was a possibility because after the challenge, Michele had told me that I was the potential target for the vote. I thought I had corrected things beforehand when I talked to everyone on the beach, so it did surprise me.
What was it like watching this back so many months later?
Its enjoyable for me to watch the show from a narrative standpoint. I try to understand from a producer’s standpoint, too that they were showing certain stories. I enjoy watching myself being a little silly!
Do you have any regrets?
I wouldn’t say “regrets.” I wish I hadn’t opened my mouth to protect Tai during the immunity challenge. He had said that Brains were the target — and where I backed him up. That put a target on me, more.
Was there anything we didn’t see that you wish was shown?
I think they told a great story for me, personally. There was a lot to show for the beauty tribe, but we didn’t get a lot of screen time. But I understand — we didn’t get to tribal, so I understand.
What would you do differently?
My downfall would have been communicating with Michele. I did it so poorly; that was my big downfall, so I would have communicated better in general.
Who’s the biggest threat left at this point?
The three brains, Joe, Aubry and Debbie, because I believe the keys were just handed over to them; they did things to deserve them, but they were on the bottom, and then when I got voted out, in my mind, they were on the top.
Would you play again?
Of course; its additive in a couple ways — the competition, and just getting away from society. So yeah, it’s an addicting game.
