Survivor Talk: Kelly Wiglesworth on how Survivor has changed over 15 years

Posted on

Timothy Kuratek/CBS

She lost the very first season of Survivor and the million-dollar check that came with it by a single vote. Kelly Wiglesworth returned 15 years later for her second chance on Survivor: Cambodia, but once again, she was unable to seal the deal and was voted out on Wednesday’s episode.

What went wrong? Kelly chats about that and more with former champ Parvati Shallow and yours truly on this week’s episode of Survivor Talk as we dissect her return trip to the island. Kelly is certainly not your average Survivor contestant. She doesn’t have a TV, so she has not even been watching this season. She also doesn’t have an Internet connection at her home in Mexico, so she had to phone in old-school style instead of via Skype.

In addition to talking about the current season and her ouster, Kelly also discusses how the game has changed since her first time out over 15 years ago and why she was uncomfortable when Jeff Probst kept trying to get her to relive and talk about her first experience.

It’s a Survivor Talk no fan of the show will want to miss, and you can make sure you do not miss it by clicking on the video player at the top of the post.
