There could have been more finessing that I could have done. She's seen hamming it up for the camera in all of them. I helped support, but I could only do so much. We could go back and forth and say why each decision happened. I wanted the jury to look at both of us and be able to make their decision. The edit strongly supported Mike making moves, but from my perspective, we were a team.
Luckily, Angelina lasted as long as her acquired rice did: the end of the game. I started to take care of people in more maternal ways. I saw front and center the backlash that happened at the merge when we tried to get Christian. It was an uphill battle.
Going in, I thought there were three ways women can typically approach the game. Of course, there was a bit of emotion in it too. I recognize the shortcomings in my game, but I had this total mindset that I wanted to play superhard. You always need a meat shield in Survivor, and it benefited us. Did those come naturally to your respective personalities? Keeley: I definitely think it impacted my game. So I went to the top of the rock.
It would be nice to help my dad get back on his feet for good; he ran a successful business until he lost it all in the recession. So it was both of those things. I wanted to let everyone know about what I was doing. One is with my husband being deployed. It looks like punishment for Kara is in the works. That was the reason I feel like I needed Mike to be in the Final Three.
She attempted to divert attention away from any showmance accusations, and a swap served as a respite to separate them. But she lost allies in more ways than one, as blindside suddenly left her vulnerable on Vuku. Kay: I learned to, in life, if you have something to say, say it. All of us played very similar games, Mike and I especially. And I think that was represented in the edit quite a bit.
Kara Kay: I took the social aspect of the game because that was the game I set out to play. They had a friendly rivalry, and I told her in final Tribal that it was the capstone to our epic battle of the warrior princesses. To win one million dollars! Though 10 people painted with the purple buff in the opening minutes of Survivor: David vs. My social game would be impressive, plus I could win over the jury with game tactics and strategy.
I would also love to have a down payment for a house. It very much helped to have the alpha males there to be the targets, because it deflected attention. But her literal dropping of the ball at the final Immunity Challenge gave her a seat in the fire-making challenge. One can look no further for an example than the divergent games of Angelina Keeley and Kara Kay.
Though both made it far down their paths, neither made it all the way, as Kara and Angelina finished in fourth and third place, respectively. It got me to the end, but it got me no votes. Angelina wanted the Final Three to be all different games, but I felt I would be able to speak on my game better if I was right next to Mike. I absolutely had to lean into that to keep myself in the game and a viable person to work with and digestible to the personalities out there. I told my job as a management consultant that I will be resigning in January and making a move to start my own nonprofit full-time.
After Dan was done via Idol Nullifier, Kara was independent and used her tight relationships to slip under the radar and avoid receiving any votes. What did you each take away from the game regarding life lessons you can bring off the island?. I observe everything, yet have the ability to keep to myself if need be. On top of all that, she elected to sit out an Immunity Challenge in exchange for rice to last the group until the end of the game, a move she was not afraid to use as attempted social currency.
