We obviously missed some of the plotting, why was the decision made to target her as an option against Becky? Targeting two females was clearly an assumption that they were weaker than the guys but seriously, Cao Boi? He is a nice guy but no stronger than those two women physically. Jessica/Flicka would have been an easier target, maybe they see how wishy washy she is and plan to just use her as a vote for a while. Too bad Cecilia had to go, she had some potential.

I like this game a lot more when we have less players. I really did not get a good feel on Cecila or why they chose to vote her out. And why Becky. I feel I am missing stuff when the pool of people is so big.

I like people that are original and I was liking Flicka but she is not a very good players. She is the Chicken George of the game just wanted to like everyone and confused on how to play the game.

Cecilia Sounds Off on Her Short Survivor Stay

by Angel Cohn

Cecilia Mansilla, Survivor: Cook Islands

Some Survivors make a big impression right out of the gate, and others take a while to come to the forefront. So while Aitu oddball Billy made for memorable TV, his former tribemate, Cecilia Mansilla, was just starting to come out of her shell when the buffs were dropped and the teams were shuffled, and suddenly she found her torch getting snuffed out. TVGuide.com asked Cecilia about her brief Survivor: Cook Islands stay and her strategy that failed.

TVGuide.com: I feel like we didn't really get to know you that well.

Cecilia Mansilla: I know. That's a bummer. It was too quick.

TVGuide.com: Did you see your ouster coming?

Cecilia: I knew, and to be honest, I just kind of gave up.

TVGuide.com: You didn't try a last-ditch-effort strategy?

Cecilia: No. Ozzy and I were a two-for-one. I approached Sundra and she was good with that, and both Cao Boi and Flicka said, "Don't even talk strategy to me. We've got to do what is best for the tribe to keep us strong." So I spent a lot of time bonding and chatting and getting to know her. I didn't spend so much time getting to know Cao Boi, which I should have. She only flipped because Cao Boi flipped.

TVGuide.com: But were you upset that they flipped?

Cecilia: No. You could tell from my face at tribal that I was fine. I had already had an amazing experience, and yes, I could have done with a lot more of it, but I was good. I was starting to get sick and I was thinking I'd get out of there before I had to spend another night on the ground with rats on my head.

TVGuide.com: The Cook Islands looked like a stunning location, so at least that must have been nice.

Cecilia: Oh, yeah, it was beautiful. Usually on Survivor, people are complaining that they are starving, but I don't know what happened to them because we got food and we were eating every day. We got two chickens and we even had to decide if we should let a chicken go because we already ate a lot. There was a point where we sent chickens back into the wild. On my original tribe, almost everybody worked really hard for us to stay strong and stay happy and have fun.

TVGuide.com: Do you have any regrets about throwing last week's challenge in order to vote Billy out?

Cecilia: I've been going back and forth on it. I have regrets because to be in Billy shoes and see this happening and to see his team lose because of him [is sad], but his attitude was detrimental to the health of the tribe. In that sense, I feel bad that we did it, but we really had to do it. A lot of people talk about maybe [not wanting] to get rid of numbers, but it was very unlikely he would have been on my tribe [when we switched]. And we already felt that as soon as we merged
