|“||It was a great experience, I would tell any super fan to do it, but I'm bummed. I had a lot more in me, and I suppose I trusted the wrong people. The problem is it was my first tribal -- I can't tell who voted with me for Chrissy. I'm not going to blame it on being swapped, I always think there is something someone can do, and evidently I didn't do it, I own that.||”|
