'The Amazing Race' veteran still isn't sure why she was targeted
Following two losses to open the "Survivor: San Juan del Sur" season, the Coyopa tribe was faced with voting out its first member.
Would they boot former MLB closer John Rocker, who the show charitably has been referring to as "controversial"?
Not a chance. John Rocker proved himself a force in the season-opening Immunity challenge, plus only Wes has figured out who he is and Wes is star-struck.
Would they boot Dale, the season's oldest contestant at 55?
Not a chance. Dale made fire by splitting his glasses in two and that sort of effort apparently had to be rewarded.
But Dale had his own opinions on who should go home first and Dale suggested Nadiya Anderson, who achieved notoriety of her own during two appearances with twin sister Natalie on "The Amazing Race." See, Dale is a big "Amazing Race" fan and he had opinions based on Nadiya's gameplay on that other CBS show and even though nobody else seemed to remember anything about The Twinnies and their two Races around the world -- one a reasonably successful fourth place finish, but more recently a swift opening Leg elimination -- that was enough to turn the votes against her.
Nadiya didn't exactly help her cause. Attempting to mobilize Josh to her All-Girl Alliance, she took him for granted and effectively told him that she was taking his presence in the alliance for granted due to his sexuality. That, however, didn't exactly explain why Josh ended up voting for Baylor at Tribal Council or why Baylor ended up turning on Nadiya.
In the first of this "Survivor" season's exit interviews, Nadiya tries to clarify her position on Josh's place in her alliance, but remains confused at why the votes ended up going against her. She also seems disappointed she didn't know who John Rocker was and wasn't able to make an ally of him. And, as you'd expect from Nadiya, she calls a lot of people idiots and fools, which she clearly means with love, or at least amusement.
