Tribe Designation: Mana
Hometown: Miami, FL.
Previously Played On: Season 24: One World – 8th
How have you changed since the last time you played?
I’m mentally stronger and more prepared to be a social person around my tribe in camp-life and the game in general. I’m more aware that most castaways play this as a “game” and don’t play it as real life, so I must adapt to that way of thinking.
What are you most proud of from the last time?
I’m proud that I stayed true to myself. You pretty much saw 100% of me! I’m happy that everyone watching (including my tribemates) got to see all my emotions. Whether I was laughing, smiling, carefree, kind-hearted, ecstatic, sympathetic, happy, sad, angry, irritated, heart-broke, or you name it….you got to see it all. All of Troyzan! I’m also pretty proud of that fact that my rant of “This is MY ISLAND!” is considered one of the 10 most memorable moments in SURVIVOR history. I’ll look back years from now and still laugh at that moment!
What, if anything, do you most regret?
I regret that I didn’t confront my enemies face to face more. I also would have called out Kim Spradlin (eventual winner) in front of the entire tribe daily! I was putting too much thought into winning challenges as opposed to letting the Tribe see the obvious plan Kim had. My mistake.
How will you play differently this time?
I’ve realized this is an “outwit” game more than anything else. I’ll try to keep the bullseye off my back by not showing ALL my cards like the last time I played…and at all costs … ALWAYS in ALL ways keep a bigger target (person) around than myself. Keep your friends close and kiss your enemies!
