RYAN: Do you feel acting so defeated at tribal made Donathan doubt you and play his idol on himself? 

JENNA : Yes, I think the mix of me being so adamant about voting tipped him off. Plus I just don’t think it was his plan to ever play it on me. He knew the votes were either him or me so why risk the 50% chance?

You appeared to have a great relationship with Sebastian, how disappointed were you that he did not vote with you, or appear to try harder to keep you in the game? 

I was devastated knowing that he wrote my name down. We promised to work silently until the end together so I was shocked that he betrayed me after being together for almost 29 days. But I have since forgiven him and am moving in with him next month!

If you hypothetically, had taken out Donathan, what was your path to the end and who were you hoping to work with? 

I wanted to secretly work with Sebastian similar to Laurel and Wendell. This way we both knew what each side was planning and we could go from there. Ideally Michael wouldn’t have been voted out so I could have used him as a shield each vote (being the only loyal Malolo’s) until I took him out before FTC. I would have wanted to take Sebastian and Angela to the end as I think I could have beaten them even with my lack of big moves out there just because I fought every vote and managed to always be on the right side of the vote (unlike Angela). 

Early in the game you had such a great relationship with Stephanie, what made you both so close? 

I think we’re both somewhat devious and manipulative but at the same time really good at connecting with others. It was just initial chemistry and I have nothing but the utmost respect for that woman.

We hardly saw any of your time on Yanuya, but it appeared you were building strong connections. Can you share any of your experiences of your time at Yanuya? 

I bonded more with Laurel and Wendell while on Yanuya. We all bonded over laughing about Chris Noble’s personality and really enjoying our time there. We talked little strategy on that island which made the connections so real. We got to know each other on a deeper level outside of the game.
