RNO: I have to admit that I was surprised you didn’t seem to hold a grudge against Bob for participating in the first fake immunity idol scam against Randy. Why not?
Corinne: That is a great question. There is something edited out that is very important in that episode. They basically pulled Bob aside [in Episode 10] and said he was going to be voted out, not Randy. They all wanted him gone because he’s likeable. It’s easier to take Randy to the end, we’re not very well liked. They told him if you cooperate, we will save you for one round.
He is not that guy, that is not representative of his behavior, which is why you saw him flipping out at Sugar. That moment, there is more of that they didn’t show, he is just twisted with guilt. He was a broken man. He said he didn’t come on the show to be someone he’s not, he can’t believe he did that. He did it to save himself one more round. They didn’t show that. That’s not how it went down at all.
RNO: In your final words, you said you don’t like any of the remaining players except Bob and Ken. Hearing you say that about Ken was a surprise. Why did you wish him the best along with Bob?
Corinne: At that moment, I thought Crystal just didn’t flip. From my perspective – you’re seeing the whole thing. I only knew Ken was voting with me and he said he’d vote in block letters with a smiley face, and he did. I knew he had flipped and Crystal didn’t. I just thought, “Now I’ve screwed Kenny.” He’s sort of gullible and believed me. So I thought the least I could do was wish him luck. I am a nice person! I like the people I like.
RNO: Has you opinion of anybody changed after watching the show to date?
Corinne: No. There’s nothing I thought of those people then that I don’t still think of them now. If I did not like you on the show, I certainly don’t like you in real life, and if I liked you on the show, you will be my best friend forever. I adored the people in my alliance – Bob, Charlie, Marcus, and Randy – I will always be friends with them. I loved Paloma and Jacquie. Unfortunately, those people are not left and I stand by my statements made about the other people.
RNO: In hindsight, is there anything you would have done differently?
Corinne: Yes. The one thing that plagues me to this day is when Paloma was voted out, I wanted to vote out Sugar and so did Bob. He was originally aligned with Ace and he flipped because he did not like Sugar. I could have taken out Sugar – Kelly, Paloma, me, and Bob were all against Sugar. If I had just approached Charlie and taken out Sugar… I regret that forever. Paloma would have been an amazing game player and she was very, very bright. I didn’t think it was a good idea to ruffle feathers that early, and everybody agreed, so to stick out my neck to save her seemed like it would be a bad idea.
RNO: Do you have anything else you’d like to tell us about your time on Survivor?
Corinne: I read the message boards avidly and am now a big Survivor fan. Yes, I was recruited but I had to give up everything to go on the show. I had to quit my high-paying job and came back to a terrible economy. I put my all into it and whether people like me or not, just know that I gave up everything I had to go on that show.
RNO: Thanks again, Corinne!
