Listen: Lauren, Rick Devon, Kelly discussed on Rob Has a Podcast
"We made it with. It's all over. I can't believe it. It's coming on. When you talk to Lauren about playing the immunity idol did Kelly actually say anything to you about that Lauryn needs to make a big move with her idol. I know that let. That Kelly leak that learn how the idol did you make up that part about that? She needs to do something with it. Yeah. We spent we'll say, I did spend time on the edge of extinction with Kelly. So all the secrets all the things they whoever was getting back in the game had information. But I knew that, that Lauren needed to create a resume for herself. That was larger than Rick and it was bigger than Victoria. How is that going to happen? It was going to play. She was going to have to play her idol now. I had already known that Rick Rick Saidles real. When I had that conversation with her, so at that point, it was planning seeds to, to have her use it for me because if she played it incorrectly. And I was the cause of that, it would my resume and diminish hers, I had to do it. Let's talk about you going into making the fire making challenge. I know that you guys had seen ghost island right before you left. How much was dominance decision in your head? When you. You went out there. I mean not only Dominic decision but, but go silent. I mean, we can agree go silent. There was passive game play. Our season was hyper aggressive gameplay, and people that were really good voted out, because they were taking big swings early on the the ultimate. The alternate thing that, that was, I guess I don't know. The only thing that could have happened was for someone to, to, to win it fire. I knew that I had to take the necklace off. I knew I had to win final four munity. I knew I had to take my necklace off and I knew I had to beat the top competitor. And so it was direct correlation to too dumb inability to do that. I was like, all right. If someone whoever wins they've, they've got to earn it. They've got to earn it big time. So when Devon's played the idol on Gavin at the final five, that's that was a shock to you, and not a surprise that you necessarily liked did that play into your factor of then not taking Devon's to the final three surprisingly enough, it actually didn't. We talked earlier that day about who the idol would be played for. We felt like we felt like Gavin would be a better person than Lauren to bring into that final three final four for either of us. And so that was the decision we both talked about. And then he, he gave it to Gavin sort of some of it was was was show for the show for the jury keeping them on their toes. It was a fun tribal. We knew that we knew that they're going to be played that night. So the fireworks going off. And so I told him I was going to I was going to play my idol last night. We're use apprised to get the votes at the final tribal council being person who was voted out of the game going into final tribal. I was proud of the game. I played I couldn't have played a better game. I there was no other possible outcome than than what transpired when I got back in. And so I had to effectively, you know, rela- that to the jury, I did not know what was going to happen that night when everyone raised their hand saying I do not know cast my vote for it was long hundred percent. True like we didn't know who's gonna win but towards the end. Wanted to feel the tide start to shift. Once I once I breakdown, how exactly I was I was playing it. It definitely definitely paid off. I want to ask you a question that I had written for Rick Devon's this afternoon. Okay. How can you help people who are averse to somebody getting voted out winning the game? How can you help those people process? This news. I think the, the student of the game as a student of the game, the only way to process, it is to know that no matter how much you think you know, you really don't know much at all. And survivor is going to throw twist because they don't want to have someone come in and think they know exactly what the perfect game is.."
