Survivor's Kelly on Brandon's Betrayal!
Last week, Survivor: Africa reject Kelly Goldsmith knew tattooed tribemate Lex had turned against her but she had no idea who secretly was pulling his paranoid strings. "Oh, I was so shocked," the 22-year-old Californian tells TV Guide Online. "I had no idea that Brandon had defected to the dark side, so I was very surprised. Brandon sat there and spoon-fed [Lex] lies; he played that guy like a flute. [He's] another gay schemer, the young Richard Hatch."
Was it any consolation to stay on as part of the Jury that votes for the sole Survivor? "No," Kelly says. "It sure beat being voted out in the first six, but I was looking to take it a lot further. I was having a really good time with the game, so I wasn't too excited to get my throat slit, as Lex likes to say."
Although the research analyst dreams of parlaying her Survivor fame into life as a "ridiculously famous movie star," she declares that "Brandon is the biggest media whore." Laughing, she adds: "Actually, everyone on Survivor. Oh, who am I trying to kid? We're all just dirty little media whores. You know our secret now." (Yeah, there's a stunning revelation alright.)
Any chance she'll pose for Playboy or another men's mag like her fellow female castoffs? "Only if I could do it with Lex," she jokes. "No, God no. That would just be freaky. And all his tattoos would get the attention; all that color would take it away from my pale ass." Yikes! Unnecessary imagery, anyone? "Big Tom will tell you I'm a pretty modest girl, " she teases, trying to make a save. "I just don't want to be naked. I wouldn't even wear my bikini in front of everybody in the first three episodes. I'm a little bit too shy and reserved. I'm a pinnacle of virtue, really... a little dainty flower."
"But [the magazines] haven't been knocking on my door, believe it or not," Kelly continues with a chuckle. "I don't know if you saw me on the show. I kinda looked like a little troll."
