Survivor's Cydney Gillon completely disagrees with all the Michele haters out there
While some viewers say Michele Fitzgerald isn't a fitting Survivor winner, Cydney Gillon couldn't disagree more. She thinks Michele was the perfect person to win the $1 million prize.
"It really came down to loyalty," Cydney told us on the finale red carpet. "In the end, Aubry did vote me out. Michele never did. It had nothing to do with game play, but it kind of does because loyalty is part of game play and she was loyal the whole way. That made me automatically not even question why I would vote for her."
Cydney felt that Aubry played a smarter strategic game, but that wasn't the most important factor in determining a winner for her. Given the opportunity to go back and vote for a winner today, Cydney would still cast her ballot in favor of Michele.
"In Survivor, loyalty can be waivering, but with Michele she never made me question her. There's nothing to change. You have my vote. That's it."
Cydney, one of the most physically built women ever to compete, fell just shy of making it to the final Tribal Council in one of the toughest seasons.
"The weather was the hardest, and that's what took a lot to get used to. Not everybody's body got used to it. Mine did, and I'm thankful for that, but if it hadn't have, I probably would've been a goner."
With a fourth-place finish under her belt, there's a likely possibility Cydney will find herself competing on the show again. She would gladly accept the challenge, too.
"I would absolutely do it again. Each and every time is gonna be different. We are a very interesting group. Living there, you were never bored. If I can get a group like this again with just as big personalities, it makes for a great game. It's fun to just really test yourself over and over again. I think playing a second time would be even harder because everybody already knows how you operate. It would be hard and I'd be up for that challenge."
