Exit Interview Episode 8/Week 7 – Libby Vincek

RYAN: Hi Libby, thank you for taking my questions. You were regularly the back-up vote and ultimately the person voted out due to a successful Idol play. Why do you believe you were the back up on so many votes? 

LIBBY: Hi! Thank you so much! Ultimately I could never quite grasp their strategy in that besides seeing me as a social threat. Angela told me once when she was braiding my hair, it’s hard to vote for you because you’re just so nice. No one hates you.” Obviously you don’t vote for people you hate on the game, so it had to have been the bonds I had and the ability to form those bonds, is why people saw me as a threat.

You voted for Michael, you two were described as being in a power couple. What was your relationship like with Michael on the Island and did you know he had an idol?

Which I still don’t understand where the girls got that. They all spent more time with him than I ever did, for that very reason. However, Michael was someone I formed an alliance with that very first day that I knew was one I could actually trust because he knew he had me as well so we didn’t spend time together on the island but like very short and sweet chats to see what was going on. Unfortunately that was when things went down hill. Had I known he had the idol, things could’ve turned out differently. That day tribal was a zoo! And having to decide on him was the only choice I had to attempt to save myself at the very last minute.

Domenick described you as a dangerous player, what game moves and strategies were you putting in place that were not shown on the show.

That’s actually a huge compliment coming from someone like Dom. I was able to converse with everyone. I had found a way to if not certainly bond with people, make it look like it did. I was a likeable, but I was going to make my own decisions. 

Libby can you describe your relationship with Morgan, why did you decide not to work with her? And do you believe her calling you out after her vote put a target on your back?

Sure. Morgan is an awesome person! We really are so much alike, I freakin’ loved her! That was the first incredibly hard decision I had to make in the game. I had to weigh my options of either being at the bottom of a brand new alliance or making a big move with my original alliance. On a personal level, Morgan is an amazing person and I know we could have worked really well together. But like I said during the last tribal council, I stick by my decision, because if Survivor was totally personal, it wouldn’t be successful. Sometimes you have to step away for a minute and remember it’s still a game. 

 Who were your key allies throughout the game?

I felt, definitely Donathan and Laurel until the merge. When the merge came, I knew I was closer to Jenna. She and I had a really strong bond that I was hoping could work with Donathan and Laurel. Once we merged it was hard to figure out where Donathan and Laurel were so that’s when it began to get much more challenging. But you couldn’t expect anything different.

Survivor South Africa 2018 Cast Announcement

0

There is only one reality show has outlasted all its competitors. It has been called the greatest game on earth, and for 18 ordinary South Africans the adventure of a lifetime is about to start on M-Net channel 101 on Thursday, 3 May.

In the sixth season of this hit global franchise, the 18 Survivor South Africa: Philippines castaways will be exposed to the beauty of thousands of islands connected by Pacific waters, each one home to distinct forests and bays which are teeming with indigenous wildlife, both beautiful and dangerous.

Their aim will be to outwit, outplay and outlast their fellow competitors to endure longer than any previous South African winner: to Day 39, where the finalists will have to convince a jury of ousted contestants, whom they either directly or indirectly had a hand in voting out of the game, to give them the title of Sole Survivor and the whopping cash prize that goes with it.

In Survivor SA, you can be whoever you want to be, the only thing that matters is how you play the game. So, who will connive, deceive, physically and mentally triumph over others to become the next winner of the sixth season of Survivor South Africa?

ACE: (28) Graphic Designer from Johannesburg

Ace – a graphic designer from Johannesburg – might be familiar to some fans as M-Net’s “Wild Card” winner after outlasting seven other wannabe Survivor castaways through gruelling challenges over the course of three days to cinch himself a spot on the series. And all of this was done while strapped to a billboard in Johannesburg! Ace might come across as an underdog but as we know in the game of Survivor, looks could be deceiving. Ace believes that his strengths include his versatility to roll with the punches and his people skills, while his weaknesses include finding it difficult to say no to people.

Exit Interview Episode 8/Week 7 – Chris Noble

Exit Interview with Survivor Chris Noble.

RYAN: Chris can you describe to me what happened last night.

CHRIS: I definitely think it’s fair to say that I was blindsided, I definitely went home with an Idol. I don’t regret not playing the idol. I was thinking big picture and if there was any tribal I think I was going to survive which the chances really evolved after the merge which are pretty slim, it probably would be that one, because as the number shrink I become more and more and more of a threat.  So I took my chances but it did not work out. The biggest thing for me was I shouldn’t have made that mistake at the water well which I did. If I could change something, i’d change that, but it is what it is.

Why do you consider that a mistake?

Let me just state that I did not just bring them over there. Wendell and Dom tried to make out like it was a dictatorship, man all these grown people can make their own decisions and go wherever they want. I didn’t tell anyone to come with me to the water well. I asked two people Angela and Des my two, Day 1 (allies) if they wanted to go get water and they said yes. It’s not my problem that everyone else followed except for Dom and Wendall.  So I got voted out and I made a poor decision out of frustration. I felt like a lot of people out there were trying to get onto another episode or out there for a vacation, sipping on Mimosas and drinking Pina Coladas instead of playing the game. I mean think about it, anyone who knows the game of Survivor and I’ll be the first to admit there are people who know the game of Survivor way more than me out there. I thought it was insane that people did not realise that Dom was a mixture of all these great players we’ve had in the past like Boston Rob and Tony. I couldn’t understand for the life of me why people were not trying to get him out,  let alone he was in a power couple with someone who is pretty damn good to in Wendell.

You talk about not having any regrets about not playing the Idol, did you tell anyone about having the Idol before tribal council?

I had actually told Angela specifically right before so there wasn’t any chances for mouth opening and stuff like that. Just because I needed someone that I trusted and somebody who could give me good insight. I just thought Angela, she had been my number one and I told her if you think that I’m going home I will use the Idol and we will be all okay.  She told me look I think we’re voting Libby. I think that’s what some people want to do. She also told me that they are going to gun for you at the next tribal. So they were some of the decisions that I had to base it off of. What wasn’t shown was, I went to Sebastian and Donathan individually and a couple of other people and they lied to me I asked them like, “Hey do you think that this plan is the right plan or do you think we should go another route?” They said I think your plan is right let’s do it and they all lied to me so hopefully that gives you some insight. I did speak to people individually, I was lied to, it is part of the game I get it obviously. I can still be a little bit bitter about. You know we are all competitive and some of us did share some really sentimental stuff and have moments together out there but you know it’s all part of the game.

It seemed almost instantly that you and Dominic did not get along , what was it about Dominic that led to that relationship never being mended and coming back together.

I think we both had these reads on each other before the game even started and then with the way the game started with him outing me and what not, it just kind of put that into motion. Even when we tried to talk he would lie to me, when I asked him a simple question and it just lead to a relationship that had a boiling point and even when him and Wendell wanted to have a peace Treaty I was way past the point of no return with Dom.  I knew ultimately that if I entered that with them I’m at the bottom of their little relationship and I’m at the mercy of their power and I’m not going to be there puppet. I just could not trust them. I didn’t know where they wanted to go with that and then asking me which Malolo I wanted to do, I just thought if I told them or gave them insight on my strategy that they would just try and out me and spin it on people. I couldn’t let that happen!

At the last  swap you seemed to reconnect with Wendell, but we see in this episode he went right back to Dominic and then when he voted for you fairly harshly in the way that he is coming across. What did you think about that tribal vote from Wendell?

I thought that that was classless. A lot of people don’t realise that we competed with each other and alongside each other and won, That did bring us some respect and closeness to each other and a lot of people don’t know that at Yanuya, the night before we won that last challenge it rained all night and basically Wendell and I cuddled man,  we had to take care of each other and that brings people close together from all necks of the woods. I even said in the tribal look I get your frustration you know we are battling alright, but when he says the things that he said it wasn’t just what he said, or how he said it and about me rapping like, I never even claimed that I was a good rapper! It was like he was bitter. There was something deep inside him and I just thought it was classless.  The way Dom and I handled it was classy. We both hated each other, really hated each other. But if we had the courage and the character to end it like that he could have too. I have a good relationship outside of here, you know we haven’t talked about it but we’ll see how it all that goes. I didn’t think it was a very good way to go out.

 It  would  be remiss of me not to ask you about your Ponderosa video which may go down as one of the greatest Ponderosa videos of all time. Can you talk about the filming of your rap and how that came about?

Two guys James and Ryan did a fantastic job. They were the editors filming and we all sat together and came up with some things creatively. So first and foremost they deserve a lot of praise for it. I wrote the lyrics and then we sat down, game planned,  we only had around 4 to 5 hours and we got it done. It ended up being amazing, look I didn’t do this because I thought I was a fantastic rapper, I did this because I am an entertainer. I want people to laugh. I know that I’m not trying to be someone I’m not. That’s the point I want people to dream big. Who would have thought some dude like me would go out out here on Survivor, do a rap video. Some people love it they get it and if you listen to the lyrics and read it, there is actually a story being told.

Thank you so much for coming on and chatting today, I hope we see you on Twitter sometime soon and I hope you get that second chance.

I appreciate the love and I appreciate you guys seeing the fun part of me in the game and I’m sending my love out to Aussie land.

The world’s toughest game returns to TVNZ 2 with a fresh batch of Kiwi castaways ready to take battle in the ultimate test of endurance, strength and strategy – Survivor New Zealand.

The 18 competitive castaways, hailing from all across Aotearoa and from all walks of life, will spend up to 40 days marooned on a deserted, rugged and unforgiving island in Thailand in a bid to take home the title of Sole Survivor and the life-changing prize of $250,000.
