Probably my favorite, at this point. I'm hoping she doesn't come across too strong and can blend in with the group.

Survivor's Liliana Sounds Off: My Strength Was My Weakness

by Angel Cohn

Liliana Gomez, Survivor: Fiji

On CBS' Survivor: Fiji (Thursdays at 8 pm/ET), there are the haves and the have-nots. The Moto tribe has been blessed this season with a sweet shelter, plenty of food, a winning spirit and even a cushy bed. But last Thursday, even though Moto won immunity, they decided to give it up, go to tribal council and vote someone off in order to hold onto their beach. And this was just a day after they lost Gary to illness! (See "Papa Smurf's" own Q&A.)(EDIT: see 'Gary' thread) TVGuide.com spoke with the victim of Moto's shoddy plan, Liliana Gomez, to find out what the heck her tribe was thinking.

TVGuide.com: I am so disappointed to see you go. You came out so strong.

Liliana Gomez: I know, and it's weird when people say that, because I wasn't shown that much, but I was really out there. I was really in the trenches, fighting, hunting.... I wish they would have showed when I was climbing this mango tree that was, seriously, at least two stories high. And then I speared a sand shark.... But it got away.

TVGuide.com: They tried to make it seem like your tribe had it completely easy.

Liliana: Yeah, I know. But they didn't really let my personality shine. It was funny when Boo was getting hurt, but I fell off the hammock, too. Both my feet went up in the air, it was hilarious.

TVGuide.com: Was Survivor a good experience for you?

Liliana: All together, totally. It was so much fun, I would do it again in a heartbeat. It's like playing in a big backyard for me. I'm all about getting dirty, it's the tomboy in me.

TVGuide.com: Well, you were in the Marines, correct?

Liliana: Oh, yeah. But even prior to that, boot camp in the Marine Corps was a piece of cake compared to my mom bringing me up. My mom is a true survivor and she definitely, definitely was the disciplinary parent.

TVGuide.com: What did she think of you leaving the show?

Liliana: She was pissed! I kept it a secret until last night, and she called me a million times saying, "What the hell?! They voted you off!" She was also pissed about Lisi and her racist comment, and I'm just like, "Oh, wow." Other than that, she was excited and proud of me. She doesn't know about Hollywood and all that stuff, though, so she didn't really understand how big it was for me to be on the show. It was a fun experience for her to watch it. All her friends would call her and be like, "Oh, my god, we're going to watch your daughter on Thursday!" But she's at work right now and they're all losing it, because [i got voted off].

TVGuide.com: Well, if it was just based on strength, you'd still be there.

Liliana: Oh, totally.

TVGuide.com: What happened at the beginning that could have separated you and Cassandra from everybody else?

Liliana: I could have sworn that Alex, Edgardo and I, at least, were tight, so it was funny how they ended up linking up [with Lisa, Boo and Stacy]. I don't know if Stacy used her charm, because she was definitely trying to work that, or maybe she promised them a vote at the end.... I don't know what she did, but I know that she and Lisi were afraid and intimidated by me, which they should have been. Very, very, very afraid....

TVGuide.com: I liked how in your exit interview, you were like, "Yeah, I would have gone after them.... "

Liliana: [Laughs] I know, I wish I would have been a little bit louder about that. They couldn't even look at me, it was disgusting. I was so totally blindsided. But how it happened was they kind of laid low-key, Cassandra and Papa Smurf, so they were in their own little world. Then, Dreamz, who could be irritating sometimes, kind of felt that he would lean on Papa Smurf and Cassandra
