Cirie Fields on Survivor Elimination: I Never Trusted J.T.

by at . Comments

In the season's first shocker, Cirie Fields was given the boot from Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains this week.

We analyzed J.T.'s side switch in the first edition of the Survivor Round Table, and now we're here to give readers even more insight into the elimination, courtesy of Cirie herself. She gave Entertainment Weekly an exit interview...

On Jeff's Tribal Council speech: I can’t say Jeff ever goes too far. This is what he does. This is why I love watching Survivor. Whether or not it ended up influencing people one way or another, we’ll never know. But I don’t think he went too far. You have to counteract what he’s saying, and if you can, you can, and if you can’t, you can’t.

Goodbye, Cirie

On J.T.'s switch: I felt like Rupert, Amanda, and James were pretty much going to stick to the plan, but you never know. I couldn’t tell. I knew Tom was talking to J.T. a lot and I never trusted J.T. I always said to Amanda, “Are you sure about J.T.?” because I could see J.T. playing. It was hard for me to figure out which one flipped, but I wasn’t really that surprised.

On her closest ally: I really didn’t have one. I was trying to make it Candice, but it was a work in progress. Candice is like a nervous Nellie, so I constantly had to reassure her. I never really had a close ally out there and that’s a problem. You can’t play the game of Survivor alone, and if everyone is threatened by you - even the people in your own alliance - it puts you in a bad spot.
