7. Can you paint us a picture of what it's like being a castaway?
"For Survivor, you see one hour a week. You don't realize that we are on seven days a week, 24 hours a day. There are cameras there constantly. It's hard to get a sense of that—how long the actual day is and how much one little thing can be blown out of proportion. There are so many elements and factors that go into it.
It's hard to stay 'on' and genuine at the same time, and be real and be in the moment without constantly overthinking where you might end up in the game. It's definitely a completely different world.
It just depends on how you handle stress, but you have to just try to play the game and not get too paranoid, which, for me, I thought that was the hardest [part]. Some people handle that better, like Jeremy, who is a firefighter and is constantly in high-stress situations. He's really cool with staying calm under pressure."
