Survivor Castoff Eliza Orlins Speaks Out

She made America laugh when she "outed" Jason Siska's idol as a mere "stick," but when Eliza Orlins knowingly played her false idol, she joined a small, but growing, number of survivors who had been stung by the show's get-out-of-jail-free card. However, this 25-year-old law student from New York never surrendered, despite her ever-dwindling alliances — marked by the early exits of Yau-Man, Jonathan and Ami — or her battles with the couples' alliance. With her last words, spoken through the smoke of her snuffed torch, Eliza exposed the idol’s true holder and may have turned the game upside-down. Now the first member of the jury, Eliza is still in a position to impact the game’s outcome, and, as TVGuide.com discovered, she has a lot to say about that.

Survivor Winner's Strategy Secrets

Chris Daugherty, 33, came from behind as the surprise victor of Survivor: Vanuatu. As the last man standing (literally), he out-scammed this season's seemingly unbeatable female faction, thanks in part to runner-up Twila bringing him into her alliance. He mostly just let the ladies take each other down, but he did have to tell his fair share of whoppers to win, and that included lying to his bride-to-be. Here, the sole Survivor tells TV Guide Online why all the deceit was worth it. TV Guide Online: How will you spend the $1 million?Chris Daugherty: I am going to go buy myself a Harley first. I actually went shopping for one last week, before I knew that I won. Isn't that arrogant? TVGO: Yeah, a little. So you had a hunch things would go your way at Sunday's finale?Chris: I took the most controversial, outspoken person in the game to the final two, so I definitely had a premonition. Basically, I said to myself, "Ifread more

Survivor Chick Fried

Last week, the all-female alliance on Survivor: Vanuatu finally cracked. Chris, the last man standing, ganged up with older gals Twila and Scout as well as the unpopular Eliza to vote off Leann Slaby. It was a smart and shocking move Leann never saw coming. In fact, the overconfident 35-year-old even appeared to give up during an immunity challenge (the one where they teamed with friends or family), thinking she was totally safe. Here, Leann dishes her downfall with TV Guide Online, including her part in the chicken-bone incident. TVGO: Did you first learn who'd voted against you by watching the episode? At tribal council, you seemed baffled. You even thought your alliance-mate, Ami, turned on you!Leann: Yeah. I saw [the episode] for sure, but I knew. It took me a while to sift through it in my head, but I knew it wasn't Ami. The only reason that I questioned Ami for a moment was because I was sitting behind her read more

Survivor's Chad Hanged

Heading into Survivor: Vanuatu, Chad Crittenden already knew he had one disability: The 35-year-old teacher from Oakland, Calif., had a portion of his leg removed and wears a prosthesis. Despite that, this cute, athletic husband and father faced all the physical challenges, proving himself stronger than some of his fellow castaways. However, when the tribes merged into Alinta, Chad clearly had another disadvantage — he was male. Alinta's seemingly unbreakable female alliance cut Chad this week, leaving Chris as the lone male tribe member. Here, Chad tells TV Guide Online all about Chris' desperate attempts to stick around, that nasty kava juice, and also answers an important question: Just how annoying is Eliza? TV Guide Online: Did you go on Survivor hoping to become a role model for people with disabilities? Chad Crittenden: There were a variety of reasons that had equal weight in my decision to do it. One par read more

Survivor's Lisa Let Go

Third time was the charm — sort of — for Survivor: Vanuatu castoff Lisa Keiffer. After reaching the semifinals of the contestant searches twice before, she finally made it onto the reality show. Too bad her flip-flopping between the older and younger cliques of the Yasur tribe — and a certain misunderstanding with Ami — got Lisa's torch snuffed. Here, the busy 44-year-old mother of six from New Orleans tells TV Guide Online about her South Pacific adventure. TV Guide Online: Wow, you look so much better now than you did on the show!Lisa Keiffer: I know. Can you believe how I looked? My face was so thin. What if I lasted the whole time? I would have been a walking skeleton. TVGO: Eliza was looking emaciated as well. Lisa: You thought she looked thinner? I was looking at me going, "Ewww." But I'm glad to know that she looked thinner. TVGO: Were you excited to do a battle of the sexes? Li read more
