Survivor's Quitters, NaOnka and Purple Kelly, Share Their Side of the Story

Naonka Mixon, Kelly Shinn

The former, after having battled a disabled contestant and thrown her closest friend under the bus to stay in the game, was the season's biggest villain. Purple Kelly, meanwhile, was too easy to manipulate to earn anyone's vote.

There's just one problem: These two women will still be allowed to... read more
