Michael Jefferson was voted out on Wednesday night’s (April 4) “Survivor: One World” in a bit of a blindside, making him the second member of the jury. He tells Zap2it he really had no idea it was coming.
How big of a blindside was last night’s vote when it happened?
“It was a big blindside to me, obviously. I honestly thought I was going to be around a lot longer. The way it was sitting, the game was going to be pretty easy for me, so it was huge. It came from nowhere. Kim played it well. It was a big blind side.”
When you were voted off, did you know it was the women’s alliance that did it?
“Yeah, the numbers were there. Jay and I had a concern that we wanted to keep it a level playing field with guys and girls. I just knew it was the women. Obviously, my name was written down plenty of times.”
Did you think the men could rally? Do they have a chance?
“Of course, but there’s more strong women out there than strong guys. Jay and Troy could really do something, but they’d have to convince some of the non-powerful women what their plan was.”
Was Tarzan just as kooky as he comes across on TV?
“Yeah. I have to give him credit, he’s an incredibly smart person. But his people skills lack a little bit. It’s hard to relate to him, maybe because he is so smart. We’re not scientists, or doctors and he’s a unique individual.”
What was Colton really like?
“He was really, really dramatic. He was just the downer of camp, you couldn’t trust anything at all times when he was around. He always had some kind of plan or lack of plan. He was just a dramatic to be aorund. Without him, it would’ve been like a vacation.”
Would you go back, if asked?
“I’m packed and I’m ready to go.”
“Survivor” airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
