This week was a double elimination week with Villain Tyson Apostal and Hero James Clement given the boot, but "The Craziest Episode Ever" will always be remembered for Tyson's Boner.
In an exit interview with Entertainment Weekly Tyson sarcastically hopes that his blunder was the worst move in Survivor history. Below are some excerpts of his interview.
On whether his blunder was the dumbest move in Survivor history: I would hope number one. I’ve been number one in so many things, I don’t want to lose it now. Once I did it I got pretty nervous and then I was like, “I still got a good chance at this.” And then when Russell panicked and ran around in a circle and gave the idol to Parvati, I was like, “Oh my God, I cannot believe this is happening.”
What his strategy was with the flipped vote? I knew that we would be too strong if he had other allies in the game. So I wanted Parvati gone. That way Russell would have nowhere to go but to me. And I knew he had the idol, which I wanted for my own evil bidding. I was kind of hoping that Russell would stick around, but out of nowhere else to go, he would have to come to me.
Why did he tell Coach to stop telling his stories? Being the tender hearted soul that I am, I went, okay, he’s never heard it from somebody that’s close to him. And he needs to know. So I felt like I was doing him a huge favor. But I know, as a viewer, that that was probably the wrong move because we love Coach stories. We love feathers in the hair. I love all that stuff too. But he wants to know why people are laughing at him, and the easiest thing to do was to tell him the truth.
