Josh Wigler (Survivor press, Parade): So much for the Kaoh Rong Four, I guess?
Caleb Reynolds (Kaoh Rong): Yeah, so much!
Wigler: What happened here, Caleb? Talk me through it from your perspective. Why did they vote you out and not Hali?
Caleb: In my perspective, I believe… I’m just going to say this. I believe what was said at Tribal Council, which they did not show — obviously there’s a short amount of time to add everything in — but I remember Sierra at Tribal saying, “Why would we want to keep these two together? He was at your wedding.” That stood out to me. It made me think, “Hold on. So you’re telling me I’m going home because Tai was at my wedding? I’m going home because of that? That’s why? Not because of anything else?” Because I didn’t do anything wrong. So I stood up to her and said, “Wait a minute. So I’m going to go home because Tai was at my wedding? So Hali should go home because you have matching tattoos, from the last time you played together.” They played together on their season and afterwards they got their little tattoos. When she called me out on Tai being at my wedding, and how it would be stupid of them to keep us two together, we’re too good of friends? I honestly think that’s what happened, on the girls’ end of it. Then Brad Culpepper was just scared of me. He was a big, strong male on the tribe. When I came in, I think he thought, “Wait a minute. There can only be one alpha male here.” I believe that was probably his sense: “There’s another alpha male here, which means they can just kick me out because Caleb’s a better competitor than me. If they got him, they won’t need me.” Maybe that was his way of looking at it. But I’m sure there were a few reasons.
