Sundra says definitively, “Yul is the nicest person next to Jesus.” She is sure the million will be used to benefit a lot of people, and not just Yul himself.
Megan in Seattle asks if they were really ready to dump Ozzy. Yes, the four were tight but the three (Sundra-Becky-Yul) were tighter. They agonized about staying as the four, or advancing their own position in the game. She says, “We left homes to sleep on the ground and eat maggots, so we wanted to get as far in the game as we could with as much dignity as possible.” She is comfortable that Ozzy knew that and respected the concept.
Responding to a prompt from Jenna, she is aware that when Ozzy kept winning challenges, it helped keep the rest of the four safe.
Dalton asks Sundra’s thoughts about Adam’s plan of forcing Yul to use the hidden idol. She quickly responds that she never considered it, saying, “I’m only going to make decisions that don’t make me feel like a schmuck.”
Dalton wonders, had Becky been given/taken the hidden idol, would it have affected Sundra’s jury vote? After a pause, she says it would not. Knowing it’s a game, it would have surprised her had he not made the offer. To be caught off guard by that would be naïve of her, she says. She adds she wouldn’t have begrudged either of them, had the hidden idol changed hands.
At the fire-making tiebreaker, it wasn’t shown that when Sundra ran out of materials she said to Probst, “Jeff, just give it to Becky. It’s Becky’s I’m out, give it to her,” Becky insisted on continuing to work until she actually made a fire and completed the task. Sundra calls Becky “a class act,” and, “underrated.”
Jenna says she ought to have waited to see if Becky also ran out of matches. Dalton suggests that the next step was to give them both a blowtorch. Ha!
Sundra says she was nervous in the fire making, and it was windy. She says, “I was trying. Trust me, I was trying,” and says she did have flames at one point. She says she sat there for a few minutes before telling Jeff to give it to Becky, it was not as instantaneous as they made it look on TV.
She admits she is surprised she lasted as long as she did in the game, but was “at peace” that she went out when she did.
When she saw it on TV, she laughed at their ineptitude at fire-making. It was funny – and, in my opinion, worthy of the Reality TV Hall of Shame, and I call it a “fire-extinguishing competition!”
Barbara in Texas asks, did you tell anyone you were an actress? No, because she thought they’d use it against her. She insists she didn’t play the game to further her career, but for “Sundra the individual.” She says she had a bad year last year and needed to “shake up her world.” She didn’t want anyone to “cheapen my experience, and cheapen what it was I wanted out of it, because it’s an easy tactic.” She adds, “It’s easy to say that, because that’s what people do.’
And that’s all we get from Sundra. Next up – Becky! Becky is actually visible by remote camera. Why this starts now, I don’t know.
“Probst’s Thoughts” about Becky begin with him concerned about the ethical dilemma she would find herself in. Would her principled work in women’s rights affect her ability to lie in the game? He says he had a hard time getting to know her, and suspects that was her plan.
Becky thought Jeff was trying to goad her into responses, but during challenges she had her game face on and she wasn’t biting.
Dalton remembers meeting “Bossy Becky” pre-show, and Jenna says that side of her didn’t come out in the show. Becky says she didn’t want to scare people into thinking she was too aggressive and manipulative, so she toned it down. While initially rafting to the first island on day one, she was barking orders and saw it wasn’t being well received by Yul and Brad. A little later, she and Cao Boi got into an argument about overt cheering at a challenge, and they didn’t see eye-to-eye after that.
Dalton asks her opinion of Cao Boi. Becky says, “Cao Boi is a great guy. I respect him in so many ways.” She admires his life experiences. However, she was aware that he would not listen to her, so when it was between her and Cecilia to go home, she let Yul talk to Cao Boi while she stayed out of the way.
Jenna asks Becky about the impact of having a final three instead of a final two, saying, “Going into the final three against Ozzy and Yul, did you go, “Oh my, this is going to be a disaster for me? Or did you think maybe you could outshine them in the final questions, and have a chance?” Becky saw these two powerhouses and was just grateful to be in that position. She certainly didn’t give up.
She hoped her social skills would guide her through the game. One which did was to align correctly with right players.
Corey from New Hampshire asks how close the final measurement was in the mud challenge, because one of the promo pics shows Adam and Yul competing while the rest watch. She suspects they took part in an unaired tiebreaker. She also says Becky resembles Julie Chen!
Becky says the editing has been interesting. There was indeed a mud-challenge tiebreaker between Yul and Adam. Becky comments about another edit, when Jonathan queried her after the family visit about her sister, and it was edited so she she appeared to ignore him. She insists she did not ignore him and is disappointed it was edited that way.
Mark in Washington asks Becky’s opinions of the ethnic split. Becky says she wanted to do the show initially to show Asians in a different, more positive light in the media. Once the split was announced she was initially concerned about negative stereotypes, but was determined to show the diversity of Asians, and to discuss Asians issues in a better light.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 Next-->
