Survivor's Julie: Stealing Phillip's Shorts Was "Not Such a Good Idea"

Since the beginning of Survivor: Redemption Island, Phillip Sheppard has become known for two things: his former life as a secret agent and his teeny tiny pink briefs that left very little to the imagination. So what did Julie Wolfe do when she grew tired of Phillip's ramblings and accusations? She hid his only pair of shorts. "That was probably not such a good idea to make everybody else look at him in those panties," Wolfe tells TVGuide.com. The 50-year-old firefighter also talked about Matt Elrod's struggle to survive on Redemption Island, how "Boston Rob" Mariano's alliance was "almost like a cult" and how she is doing following her...read more

Survivor's Sarita: David is "Such a Loose Cannon"

The Zapatera tribe's alliance of six was strong enough to take down one of the biggest villains in show history, Russell Hantz, on Survivor: Redemption Island. However, when it came to the question of Sarita White's strength and physical capabilities, her one-time allies quickly changed their tune and sided with David Murphy to vote her out. White, a 36-year-old visual effects producer, is the first to admit she wasn't the strongest competitor, but (wrongly) assumed her fellow tribemates would see through David and his "insidious" ways. White talked with TVGuide.com about which player she calls the "juggernaut of power," who made her want to slit her wrists and why she hated the physical challenges so much.

Survivor's Krista: "I Don't Regret Going with Russell"

Survivor: Redemption Island castaway Krista Klumpp technically lasted until Episode 6, but many would say her fate was sealed weeks ago when ally (and series villain) Russell Hantz was booted from the game. Despite her close (and ultimately fatal) ties to Russell and her early paranoia about playing with him, Krista says she has no regrets about aligning with one of the competition's most infamous players. The 25-year-old pharmaceutical rep also talked with TVGuide.com about her close bond to Matt Elrod (and the impending drama that came with it), the real reason she thinks she was voted out before Stephanie [Valencia] and the tribe member she thinks already blew their best shot at the grand prize... read more

Survivor's Kristina: Rob Played My Tribe "Like a Fiddle"

From that very memorable (and quite disastrous) first Tribal Council of Survivor: Redemption Island, Kristina Kell seemed to have a tough road ahead of her. She found a hidden immunity idol, which Phillip Sheppard quickly revealed to the team. She plotted to get out veteran player "Boston Rob" Mariano, but Phillip spoiled that too. The final nail in her Survivor coffin? When she had to face the young and physically fit Matt Elrod in her Redemption Island duel.  The 46-year-old law student talked with TVGuide.com about her medical issues during the duel, working with "crazy, lunatic, out-of-his-mind, paranoid, delusional" Phillip and why she refers to her former tribe mates as "Rob's zombies"... read more

Survivor's Russell Denies Leak Accusations: I Have Too Much Respect for the Show

The third time was not the charm for Survivor legend Russell Hantz. After making it to the final Tribal Council back-to-back in Samoa and Heroes vs. Villains, the 38-year-old oil tycoon failed to last until the merge, let alone the jury vote, and was voted out by his all-too-suspicious Zapatera tribemates in just the third episode of Redemption Island. Die-hard series fans thought Russell would have the perseverance to beat Matt Elrod in the final duel, but his dominos fell short and one of the game's most notorious players left on a surprisingly emotional note.

Russell talked with TVGuide.com about his teary send-off, why he's still no fan "Boston Rob" Mariano and why he felt like John Gotti on the island. Plus: He discusses those "completely false" reports that he leaked show spoilers... read more
