'Survivor: Cambodia—Second Chance': Peih-Gee compares Abi to a 'rabid dog'
She should have been safe. Her tribe could have even lost another immunity challenge and she still should have been safe. But then came one of the most epic tribe majority meltdowns in Survivor history.
When the dust settled, Peih-Gee Law found herself on the losing end of a feud with Abi and was voted out of the new Angkor tribe and out of Survivor: Cambodia—Second Chance. How could the former Ta Keo majority of four let the former Bayon minority of two come in and turn them all completely against each other? Why did Abi and Peih-Gee turn on each other after having worked together on the previous vote, and have they had any communication since? And did Peih-Gee — who is a jeweler — actually try to steal Abi’s bracelet?
Jessica Shaw and I asked Peih-Gee these questions and more when she called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) on Thursday morning, and you can hear the entire interview right here on the InsideTV Podcast. “Why would I want to steal her bracelet,” says Peih-Gee. “The only reason would be to make her crazy. … It was an ugly P.O.S. anyway. … Somehow her crazy mind thought that I took it for some reason within hour one on day one.”
Those aren’t all the words Peih-Gee has about Abi, of whom she says “I wouldn’t wish her on my worst enemy. … I actually had a lot of animosity with her. … I really had a hard time dealing with her.” (Understatement of the year.) Peih-Gee also reveals that she warned Jeff Varner against trying to take Abi far in the game.
“We were talking,” says Peih-Gee, “and I was like, ‘You know what? I want to see her out.’ And Jeff was like, ‘Oh, she’s easy. We can get rid of her any time. We can always get rid of her. Nobody likes her.’ And I was like, ‘That’s the problem. Everybody is going to keep saying that, and before you know it she’ll have made it all the way to the end. But she’ll probably bite you on the butt on the way out.’ And everybody always thinks they can control her but you can’t control a rabid dog. You can kind of maybe hold the leash and point it away from you, but you never know when it’s going to turn around and bite you.”

Peih-Gee also reveals that there was much more to Jeff Varner’s post-challenge blow-up that we did not see. “He called out every single person on our tribe,” says Peih-Gee. “He blew everybody up.” To hear more from Peih-Gee about that, her communication with Abi now, and what happened when she got to Ponderosa with Shirin, click on the audio player below.
