It was a rough night for Shirin Oskooi on Survivor: Cambodia—Second Chance. She lost control of the tribe and then lost control of the game. But she did not go down without a fight. It turns out Shirin had one last trick up her sleeve on her way out of Tribal Council, and it’s one that could have lasting repercussions in the game. Only one problem: They didn’t show it on TV!

But when Shirin stopped by the Entertainment Weekly offices for her big Survivor Talk appearance, she told us exactly what went down before she got her torch snuffed, and you’re going to want to hear it. Also: How does she feel about the parallel Jeff Probst made between her situation in Worlds Apart and Abi’s here? And does she feel she erred in not comforting Abi after the big blowup? You’ll find answers to that and more in the video at the top of the page.

You’ll also find our celebrity guest-host of the week, one of the most famous Survivor players ever. It’s Rob!!! (But which Rob?) Put it all together and you have a must-watch episode of Survivor Talk. So get watching! And for an endless stream of Survivor scoop, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
