Last night on Survivor 2016 another castaway was voted off and our Kaoh Rong jury grew by one more member as castaway Nick Maiorano heads to Ponderosa following a great blindside when the women joined forces and did their own thing.

Since Neal was at the hospital recovering from his infection Nick actually ended up being the first arrival at Ponderosa this season which is interesting and I imagine a little lonely as he wanted to talk with Neal to get more insight to what happened. He’ll have plenty of time for that later!

The Nick we get here in Ponderosa seems like a totally different person from the rest of the season and I actually like this guy a lot! He’s funny, self-deprecating, and having a good time. Seems like the guy we saw on Kaoh Rong just couldn’t lighten up and have fun, but that’s not an issue here.

Nick wonders what was the catalyst and discusses being emotionally withdrawn later in the video as things get pretty heavy. It’s an interesting comparison to the lighter side as things start with his seemingly accepted fate in the game. Dude needs a beer!
