Previously Played On: Season 32: Kaoh Rong – Runner Up
How have you changed since the last time you played?
I’m more assertive, confident and grounded in who I am. In my last season, I logically knew I could play and do well. This time, I believe it. I have an easier time taking stock of the cards on the table, making decisions and rolling with the consequences.
What are you most proud of from the last time?
I am beyond proud that I made it to Day 39 despite encountering some obstacles, including:
-Having a horrendous Day 2
-Crappily executing the Pete vote (this time I’ll be folding the paper up, eating it for fiber and taking a new parchment if I change my mind)
-Two closest allies medically evacuated
-Being forced to make fire to save myself
What, if anything, do you most regret?
I wish I could take back every second of every one of the five days I lived with Nick. Oh, and I regret letting Joe eat all the red meat.
How would you play differently this time?
Going into “Game Changers,” I know I’ll have a target on my back, especially since other players will have just seen my season. I can’t play under the radar — people won’t buy it. I plan to align with a variety of people, including power players and villains to pad myself. In SURVIVOR 34, I will: 1. Do with certainty and apologize later. 2. Be friendly with more people and have intense relationships with less. 3. Execute with finesse.
