Jenna is surprisingly not awed by Ozzy’s win, and confesses she is a little off Ozzy this week because of his role in the hiding the food. However, she admits she did it during her own season, so there you go. Also, he seems to be flipping on his friends in next week’s promo.
Cheryl in NYC also asks about the mutiny, wondering if he was ready to mutiny before Candice did it. No, but in the split-second available to him, he knew the numbers would be on Raro and he wanted to be on the larger tribe. A little later, he figured that as last man in, he just put the target on his back.
Kathy from LA wonders if he has any regrets. He doesn’t, really. He muses that when he asked Yul if he had the hidden idol, he heard what he wanted to hear and should have questioned him more deliberately.
At the time, they didn’t know it wasn’t going to be a final three and Becky/Yul was an unbreakable duo. Jonathan knew that to get there himself, eventually he would have to move away from them.
Dalton reminds Jonathan about losing his temper with Jeff. Jonathan notes they are of similar ages and likes Probst. He was the only production person that you were allowed to talk to. He doubts Jeff harbors any ill-will toward him.
Dalton uses that response to segue to the “Probst’s Thoughts” feature, where a message is played that Jeff Probst previously recorded about the departing player. He remembers Jonathan “they speak the same language.”
He adds that Jonathan never let him down; he always gave them something usable. Jeff calls him a good story-teller and a good player. He wonders if Jonathan has changed after his experience and would like to have a Jonathan in the game every season.
Jonathan thanks Jeff and says he would indeed play again. Jonathan says it was a “life-changing experience;” he did things he never did before and found the fountain of youth.
He’s kept the thirty pounds off that he lost (Jenna confirms this for us). Other players frustrated him; because they didn’t seem to appreciate the opportunity they were given.
Starting the final segment as usual is the “minus 10” feature, where Dalton reads ten rapid-fire categories for the guest to comment on, each in ten words or less. Here’s how it went:
Regarding number four, both Dalton and Jonathan went to that school.
Greg from Michigan asks how Jonathan was treated by the other players off camera. Jonathan says, “I think the show is pretty fair, actually. The quiet people who don’t get the camera time, they are much more quiet. The loud people that were probably pretty abrasive for the quiet people to have to listen to all the time, they got more camera time.” He adds that most of the time he had fun out there.
Jenna asks if it was awkward meeting with Candice and Nate afterward. He says the next day; he woke up with Candice almost standing over him. He says, “We talked for hours, got through a lot of stuff, and now I have a lot of respect for Candice.”
Dalton asks if “Bossy Becky,” as she identified herself pre-show, seems to come across as invisible. Jonathan likes her a lot and calls her “very bright.” They talked a lot and got along well. He put himself out for her when Cecilia was booted instead of her, and he isn’t sure why she didn’t trust him more.
Jonathan says, “I grew up in a New York Jewish household with screaming and yelling and laughing and crying and dancing and singing all the time. I’m going to guess a lot of the folks on the island did not, with the volume and degree of action I have.” He suspects that may have put some of them off.
David from North Carolina asks what Jonathan thought was the hardest challenge. He also asks if his acting background helped in the game. The second one wins a game for David.
The pole challenge was the hardest for Jonathan; he knew he wasn’t going to win and just didn’t want to be first out. About acting, he doubts it helped him. He thinks it was harder for him to get on the show.
Asked if he acted a role while he was in the game, he says he was just himself. He wonders if his clear, overt agenda may have scared some of the more timid players off.
He says he lied one time in the game. He adds that in the game, everyone lies. Jonathan says he’s not a liar in his life, but the game takes away your defenses, and to act otherwise for 39 days isn’t really possible.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 Next-->
