'Big Brother' and family-voting talk with the last castaways eliminated on Redemption
"Survivor: Blood vs. Water" concluded on Sunday (December 15) night with three hours of episode and live reunion show. Thanks to the presence of Redemption Island, Sunday may have been the "Survivor" finale, but it began with a whopping seven castaways still in play.
That means that on Monday morning, between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., I did seven exit interviews, or rather five exit interviews with seven contestants.
As I did last week with "Amazing Race," I'll be posting one exit interview per day through to my very funny chat with Tyson on Friday.
The Week of "Survivor" Exit Interviews begins with Laura Morett and Hayden Moss, who finished sixth and seventh for the season and were eliminated after a Redemption Island Duel in which Tina Wesson outlasted them balancing a vase on a teeter-totter.
Both Hayden and Laura had their moments.
Hayden, a former "Big Brother" champion and boyfriend to returning Kat, may not have been successful, but he definitely stirred up some passions at his last few Tribal Councils, working with Ciera and trying to break Monica away from her alliance with Gervase & Tyson. He was also part of the now-notorious rock-drawing Tribal Council.
Laura was the only contestant voted out in part by her loved one, as daughter Ciera helped send her to Redemption Island for the second time in the game.
In their paired exit interview, Hayden and Laura discuss their Final Jury votes for Tyson, Hayden compares "Survivor" and "Big Brother," while Laura talks about the frustration of spending so much of her game on Redemption Island.
