Montag wasn't ready to leave the jungle after loving "every minute of it" — especially the moments she shared with former American Idol finalist Sanjaya Malakar. "Sanjaya's my best friend," Montag explains. "We got very close, but nothing romantic; it's not very private there. [But] we can be 'Sanj-olly.' I love that. That's the cutest thing I ever heard."
Off-camera, Holly insists that "everything's great in the Pratt/Montag bunch." When asked about her rocky relationship with brother-in-law Spencer Pratt on The Hills, Montag said, "Since then we've just come to a mutual understanding. He's the funniest guy I know. I'm so happy we're getting along and it's been great. I'm very pleased that they're married."
Fellow evictee Janice Dickinson wasn't shy about sounding off on cast-mate and NBA vet John Salley.
"It's John Salley's world, on- and off-camera," Dickinson told TVGuide.com. "We didn't see eye-to-eye at all. He is a four-time champion NBA ballplayer who pushed a middle-aged woman... I didn't like being manhandled by Mr. Salley."
