Plus, she revealed why she stayed so loyal to Joe Mena when all people else hated him. She additionally mentioned how a casting director randomly discovered her on-line and approached her to be a contestant on the present.
SheIs aware of: What did you suppose was going to occur on the Tribal Council by which you have been voted off?
Desiree Williams: I type of thought precisely what occurred was going to occur. Going to Tribal I had a reasonably good inkling I used to be going residence. We had confirmed the opposite alliance could be splitting their votes between Joe and me. I type of knew, or not less than felt, if I might simply write down Joe’s title that I’d be secure within the recreation. He would’ve had the votes to go residence. On the identical token, I couldn’t morally convey myself to write down down his title. I had conversations with nearly all people, and all people had lied to my face about who they’re working with. Joe, I felt, was the one one that was being truthful at that time. He was the one individual I nonetheless trusted within the recreation. It grew to become one thing a lot larger than the sport of Survivor.
SK: What gave you that feeling you have been going to be voted off?
DW: I had tried to have a dialog with Chrissy, and it was very clear that she did not wish to work with me. It was clear that the Heroes tribe was staying sturdy collectively. Secondly, I knew that I used to be an enormous bodily menace within the recreation. No ifs, ands or buts about it, even going into the merge there have been too many challenges I had made look too simple. I knew individuals could be gunning for me for that cause.
SK: Lauren had a secret benefit that she used at Tribal Council. It concerned her sacrificing her vote to achieve an additional 1 later within the recreation. How is it that no one seen there was a vote lacking when Jeff Probst revealed every one?
DW: I do know. It’s really easy to see it from the surface wanting in. “Oh, duh. Only 10 votes were read.” But whenever you’re within the second, we have been sleep-deprived and hungry. I in truth did not even discover solely 10 votes have been learn. Even additional than that, I used to be nonetheless dumbfounded about the place all of the Healer votes went as a result of I assumed we have been all voting for Lauren. We had all agreed upon that going into Tribal as a option to hold us secure. I used to be super-confused concerning the Healer votes, so I wasn’t even fascinated about the very fact solely 10 votes have been learn. It’s really easy at residence to say, “That makes no sense.” If it had been 5 votes for Joe and 5 votes for me, it might’ve been very clear, however the votes have been in all places.
SK: When did you be taught Lauren did not truly vote? Did you discover out about it whereas watching the episode?
DW: No. I came upon earlier than the episode aired. Truthfully and embarrassingly, it wasn’t till different individuals got here to Ponderosa that I knew that. Once it was achieved, I used to be fascinated about all of the meals I used to be going to eat, brushing my enamel and having a shower. I wasn’t ruminating over what number of votes went the place. It did not cross my thoughts.
SK: You mentioned you could not morally solid a vote in opposition to Joe, however virtually all people else appears agitated by his sturdy character. What is it about Joe that stored you so loyal to him?
DW: It’s humorous as a result of Joe wears his playing cards on his sleeve. If he would not such as you, you recognize he would not such as you. It rubs individuals the improper manner as a result of they’re used to simply being pretend on a regular basis. Joe could be very clear in what he likes, what he will do, says what he thinks and does what he says he will do. For me, I respect that. Although I am not as abrasive in my supply, I am additionally that sort of individual. I do what I say I am gonna do. We do not should hold having these conversations and insecurities about what you are fascinated about me. This is what I believe, and you may’t change the way in which I believe. He’s way more vocal, however I believe he and I are comparable in the way in which we expect and function on this planet.

SK: But with the unfavorable emotions surrounding him by the opposite contestants, did you ever think about distancing your self so you were not so tightly related to Joe?
DW: I do not suppose my partnership with Joe is why I received voted out. I believe should you ask anyone else who performed the sport, they might say the identical factor. I used to be a problem menace. People appreciated me effectively sufficient. That’s why I used to be voted out of the sport, not as a result of I used to be working with Joe. If something, my partnership with Joe would’ve helped long-term as a result of if each of us get additional within the recreation no one desires to maintain him round.
SK: You talked about that Chrissy had little interest in working with you. What is your tackle Chrissy?
DW: Chrissy is considered one of my least favourite individuals on this planet. These are very sturdy emotions, however now you’ve got received me labored up [laughs]. Chrissy doesn’t like girls, and that is very clear, not less than girls who she feels threatened by. You can see back-to-back-to-back girls have been voted out, and Chrissy was on the helm of these selections. She both would not know find out how to work with girls or would not care to work with girls. It may be simpler to govern guys together with her “good looks,” huge boobs, enamel or no matter. My tackle Chrissy is she’s good on this recreation as a result of guys are dumb and fall for large boobs and enamel. I believe Chrissy crossed the ethical line on this recreation greater than as soon as, and for that cause I’ve a tough time together with her as an individual.
SK: What did she do to cross the road with you?
DW: It was not proven as a result of it might’ve aired in my elimination episode. There was some extent Chrissy swears on her youngsters about one thing she is actually mendacity about. That, to me, attracts the ethical line. At that time, it was not one thing that even wanted to be lied about. We all noticed what went down. The reality that you just’re swearing in your youngsters’ lives about one thing that you’re truly mendacity about. It was one thing that does not matter as a result of all of us noticed it go down. You cannot even lie. It felt silly and she or he had gone too far.

SK: Can you inform us what occurred?
DW: It was the entire digging for the Idol factor. It was one thing about seeing the clue after which digging for the Idol. It was all in that entire factor that went down the place she and Cole have been wrestling within the sand. It all surrounded that second with that clue they discovered within the group reward.
SK: So there is not any future friendship between you and Chrissy as soon as that is all achieved?
DW: It’s bizarre, truly, as a result of generally she texts me. I am like, we’re truly not pals. I do not know that she has a very good learn on how a lot I do not like her. I do not like her.
SK: At this level, who do you suppose is taking part in the strongest recreation?
DW: I believe Chrissy. We’ve seen Chrissy lead 4 votes in a row. So whereas I do not like her as an individual, she’s taking part in a hell of a recreation. She’s nonetheless profitable by the sport by manipulating these males to vote her manner time after time. For no matter cause, they do not see her as a menace regardless that she’s controlling all of the strikes. It’s an attention-grabbing factor that is happening. I do not like Chrissy 1 bit, however she’s taking part in a hell of a recreation.
SK: Did you’ve a plan on who you wished to go to the ultimate 3 with?
DW: I positively had a plan on who I wished to take a seat subsequent to. J.P. is considered one of them as a result of he was confused all the time. I went forwards and backwards between Cole and Devon. Cole made deadly flaws over and again and again. For Devon, when the ultimate 3 talks at that remaining Tribal Council, he wasn’t going to kind a sentence that made it convincing to vote for him.
SK: But not Joe?
DW: No. I’d not go to the ultimate 3 with Joe. At some time limit, I’d’ve needed to flip on him. If Joe pisses off that many individuals and makes it to the ultimate 3, he is taking part in a very good recreation.

SK: How did you get on the present?
DW: Truthfully, I wasn’t a hardcore Survivor fan. I, in fact, watched it the primary a number of seasons that each one of America watched. I fell out of it in highschool and school. I truly acquired a random message on Facebook. There was a random message from a casting director from Survivor. He was like, “I do know that is loopy, however simply hear me out. Watch Survivor for a weekend. Call me on Monday, and let me know if it is one thing you are occupied with.” So I binge-watched Survivor for a complete weekend. I largely noticed the bodily challenges and was like, “I’m a competitor. I’d love to fucking play that.” I then recorded an audition tape and despatched it in. A pair weeks later, I used to be flown out to LA for in-person auditions. It’s type of one thing that fell in my lap to be completely trustworthy.
SK: How did they discover you?
DW: He mentioned that he generally seems on the Miss USA web site and reads contestant profiles to see if any of them could be a very good match. He got here throughout my profile and thought I’d be a very good match. At least that is the story I used to be informed. That’s how he discovered me.
SK: Would you play once more?
DW: Absolutely. I believe it is type of like how individuals describe childbirth. In the second you are like, “Who did this to me? I’m not up for this shit. How the hell did I get here?” Then afterward you are like, “Oh, that wasn’t so bad. I think I’ll have 10 more.” That’s type of the place I’m. In the second, I used to be depressing, particularly after I was hungry, soiled and my breath stunk. Reflecting on it now, I’d completely return.
SK: But should you knew Chrissy was going to be again within the recreation with you, would you continue to wish to play once more?
DW: Oh, gosh. That’s a tricky choice. I would not let her rain on my parade. I would nonetheless return.
