1. How shocked were you by your blindside?
Ciera: "I was extremely surprised that it was my name. I thought that [Kelley] Wentworth would go before I went. I thought that because she played her Idol [and] she had a little bigger of a target on her back than I did. But, honestly, if any time is going to feel like a good time to go out, [it was then]. It was reassuring to be looked at as a threat.
My goal was to get people to vote Stephen Fishbach, and the week prior I told people to vote [Kelly] Wiglesworth and she went home. To see that everybody voted how I thought they were going to vote was reassuring in the fact that I was like, 'Okay, I did my part.' I did what I was supposed to do and convinced enough people. It just so happened that there was an Idol played."
