After Michael Yerger played his hidden immunity idol, all votes cast for him were not counted, meaning the four for Libby were more than enough to snuff her torch. Libby headed off to Ponderosa where she joined Chris Noble, and we’ve got her video for you below.
“I was the victim of a blindside, which kind of sucks,” Libby said immediately after leaving Tribal Council. “I feel a little betrayed but, you can’t look at this experience as any sort of negative. Especially with as far as I made it.”
She’s happy and proud of herself for making it 25 days in the game. She says she’s definitely looking forward to being in the kitchen and cooking, which is one of her passions. And after learning she lost 13 pounds while on the Survivor island, she’s ready to eat a little too. Her first bite at Ponderosa was pizza, of course.
After catching up with Chris and eating, she settled in for the night before getting up and facing her first full day at Survivor’s Ponderosa.
“I woke up excited,” she said. “I got up and brushed my teeth .. but there was still a part of me that was feeling a little dismayed. I kept replaying so many things in my mind and I was just mad.”
But she decided she didn’t want to dwell on the bad feelings. She didn’t want to cover “this amazing experience with negativity.” So she got over it quickly.
“There was a point where I felt like I was confused,” Libby said. “It was a point where I got to look back and be like actually Libby you did really, really well and this is your reward. This is such a beautiful place. You get to eat, you get to rest. You get to bond with people you didn’t get to bond with at times because you weren’t in the same alliance.
“You get to see that you deserve this. It’s almost like we went through this hard time, this hard game and doing so well, you get to come here and you get to reflect on the good things you did and the tough player you were. You come back a whole new person after an entire adventure of a lifetime. Anytime I think of this place i’m going to think of the new Libby that came back.”
