Like any survivor who's beat out of the game, you're pretty gutted. You're watching and those emotions are building as your name is coming up so you know it could be the end. I thought perhaps those three [Shonee, Brooke and AK] may have saved me because that was the talk before we went into tribal, so it's a shame.
There's always a glimmer of hope and I was maybe 60 to 70 per cent sure the cards would fall my way and I would be safe. But there's half a million dollars at stake so I didn't hold any grudges toward anyone not sticking with me.
People told me not to vote with my emotions, but... I think after 40 days people can get very comfortable with one another and they can sometimes start to treat you like an old friend or sibling.
There were a few times off camera I tried to extend the olive branch but you know, [he's] just pig-headed and it was never going to happen.
I hope so, maybe it grinded some people's gears when I mentioned my age and what we're capable of.
