stacey survivor south pacific 'Survivor: South Pacific's' Stacey Powell: 'If [Coach] wants to start over, I will'Stacey Powell was booted off of Upolu on “Survivor: South Pacific” and once at Redemption Island, she had no problem telling anyone who would listen what was going on with their tribe. She tells Zap2it that she’s ready to let bygones be bygones with Coach.

Are you glad you did ‘Survivor’? Was it everything you expected/ hoped it would be?

“YES! Yes it was. Most definitely. I knew it was going to be hard, but I knew I was going to need to fit in with every body and that is the hard social part.”

How mad were you when the tribe booted you off after you almost won that strength challenge for them?

“Ughh! I was mad but I accepted it because I knew it was either going to be me or Edna. I think it was me because… I just don’t think they went with Edna so they would have someone else to vote off down the road.”

At this point in the game, which tribe do you think is stronger?

“The blue because their women look stronger. Dawn is strong, the blue women look like they could outtake most of the red women.”

Was there anyone you were rooting for to make it to the end when you eliminated?

“No, not really. I guess I would like to see Cochran because he is such a fan of the game and he knows how to play the game. I like his strategy, his conversations. I like how he is playing the game. I also like Christine. She is my girl. She is a strong woman. She has integrity when she plays the game.”

Are you interested in patching things up with Coach?

“You know, all things to the side… What it is, is what is what, is what we had… Let’s let bygones be bygones. If he wants to start over, I will. But I don’t think it will happen.”

Any finals thoughts or messages to your fans?

“This is not the last you will see of Stacey. In anything I do, I will go out with a big ole bam. Thanks.”  

“Survivor” airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
