This week on Survivor Philippines, we said goodbye to Abi-Maria and had to come to terms that she would not be our sole Survivor or our sole source of entertainment during this Sunday’s season finale.
The day after her elimination, the spunky underdog sat down for her exit interview to talk about her experience, what she learned and how she made it as far as she did as a one-person alliance.
“I love everything that I went through, Abi says. “It was a learning curve. I was very surprised by being unliked. And I understood now that being too honest in the game is not the way to go.”
“Survivor made me a better person,” she continued. “It made me more patient. I used to get impatient easily. You learn how to depend on yourself a lot more and how to pay attention to everything around you.”
Abi should be proud of how she played the game. She might have gotten under everyone’s skin, but she played a good game near the end with her bluffing and bravery.
“I was a one-person alliance and I was able to fight on my own,” she said. “And I went home still fighting against a four-person alliance.”
